If you haven’t been following along on our twice-a-week uploads to the StanceWorks YouTube channel, we’ve recently returned to the StanceWorks E36. After more than half a decade off the road, it’s in need of a serious overhaul in order to bring it back to life. We’ve gotten the E36 torn apart at the back end, but let’s just say it didn’t go smoothly. We fought a stubborn gas tank, a broken subframe mount, frozen axles, and all sorts of bushings…
I’ve been itching to replace the 25-year-old coilovers on the M3 with something modern and… not blown. My friends at H&R built a complete custom setup for the M3, and I wanted to take the opportunity to put together the ultimate how-to for assembly and disassembly.
The process is the same for any classic BMW.
The new H&R coilovers include camber plates, adjustable dampers, and aluminum RSMs, just to name a few details. The installation was as easy as could be, too.
Classic car prices are exploding… and us classic ’80s and ’90s BMW fans are watching in terror as cars that were once disposable and cheap have reached new heights in value. The icons of the era, like the E30 M3, are well more than double their cost when new, while poorly kept examples headed for the junkyard have moved from a “few hundred” dollars to a “few thousand.” As these classics age, it makes finding worthwhile examples exceedingly tough, too.
2020 was one wild ride by any conceivable measure, and we’re thankful that 2021 is finally upon us. Not wanting to let all of 2020 go to waste, though, we ended the year with a special event. We partnered with our friends at H&R Springs to give away our would-be SEMA car in the wake of the cancelled event. With a trio of StanceWorks Art Prints available to help aid in the process, we set out to give one lucky entrant a brand new BMW M235i xDrive Gran Coupe…
2020 has been one hell of a year, no matter who you are or where you’re from. We figured, why not end it with something special? You read the title right: we’ve partnered with H&R Springs to give away a brand-new 2021 BMW M235i xDrive Gran Coupe, along with $5,000 in cash. If that doesn’t pique your interest, we’re not sure what will.
