Thread: project daily ( e36 content) no bags here

  1. #1

    Default project daily ( e36 content) no bags here

    well my boston green e36 died. a couple months back, so after searching around i picked up this 1993 325is, for $2000. it is by no means a perfect car but was well maintained.

    this is it i polished the headlamps yesterday and ground down the numbs that come on oem BMW lamps. the previous owner had fulling tinted tails on the car, thats coll and all but i do live in Taxsachusetts, where you must pass a fairly strict inspection. i swaped the tails with the ones off my BG e36.( now the donor car)

    you can see the blacked out ones on the green car next to it.
    ohh yea the car does have a full coil over suspension. any guesses on what brand? BIG hint its not ebay or race land coil overs either..


    Comments are much appreciated, and more than welcome.

    so today was nice out. i got high performance coils and boots in from bavauto, money well spent i will add not sure of power gains or anything but good buy. considering the coils that where on the motor where 3 bremi and 3 zundspule.

    ohh yea did i mention they where apparently held together with electrical tape.
    this being a 93 the door cards where shot and held together with wood screws(this is more common than i thought it turns out) any how the door cards from the 328 where in good shape so i refreshed them a bit and... the drivers door card should be on tomorrow the people who had this car before me meshed the hell outa the speaker wiring so im screwing with that been rolling with no door card, as i un wood screwed it. i also pulled the side skirts off the 328 then installed my intake setup from the 329 went smoothly had to cut the intake tube a bit to fit the different angles of the m50 setup.
    ohh yea and i made a custom horn bracket there both down there though you cant really tell

    the black one had some rust on it im going to fix, im also going to make a boser style hood. yea i could realistically go lower at any time,but the road are very bad where i live so i cant go low and drive as a daily. why you don't like the Boston green hood? i have defiantly never seen another e36 with this combo. the trunks will also be swapped so i can fix the rust areas on the black one. i also don't really care for the wing.

    thanks, much appreciated ive seen your M3 and thats done clean, i sometimes question what people are thinking when they do wiring. yea this should a fairly long build, im rebuilding my m52 motor for a turbo setup and it will be in this car.
    ALSO in one of these picture you see the roof lip on the car and i lost that going down RT.21 i might find it as i drive this road regularly but who knows. it no big loss really.

    if anyone has some input on things to do to the car let me know im open to suggestions.

    Nice! I'm about to tackle the same issue. What gauge(s) did you go with?

    Looking good

    i believe it was 3. actually once you start you can push right through the long process. i had to do every speaker, tweeter and head unit. i also took out the crappy speakers/tweets that the PO had in stalled. they weren't even the right size. so i swapped in the ones from the 328. really wish i could of use the factory wiring

    Almost looks like an old Volvo 850 wing... not sure on the center part but it looks similar to the wing that came on the Turbos...

    Project looks good, making progress is key and not allowing the car to sit untouched for too long and get sidetracked. Just keep chugging along and it'll be done in no-time.

    so yesterday i spent some more time on the BG e36 then i clean up the exhaust system. i only got this half off now as im going to be pulling the motor of the 328 to rebuild it. the 95 M3 exhaust that was on the car was have as hell. how much do these go for? im probably selling to someone, its all oem. new pypes are much much lighter .21
    i like the DTM tips, the exhaust is from UUC . ill try to get a video at some point

    as for the wing no it is not from a volvo. think JDM......
