    My 1987 325e *m50 swap in the works*

    Sup R3v,
    had a 91 alpine 318i for a while, wasnt feeling the m42 too much and i wasnt about the sedan life, so i got rid of it and now im on to my new project

    1987 325e m20b27
    240k on odo
    pretty clean body, some dings here and there and small surface rust here and there. interior is shit, has a pretty bad coolant leak from the water pump, should be getting that fixed soon.

    All around the car is nice, drove 100 miles home after i got it.
    i love the m20, and the color and just about everything about it.

    My plans, fix water pump, do timing belt, valve cover gasket, clean engine bay, replace just about all hoses, tuck bumpers, get other two rims, raceland coilovers, new headers, valve adjustment, euro grills, etc. have a good idea of what i want it to look like after everything so here it is.


    right after i got it.


    you can see the water on the ground. after i drive it somewhere you can hear the car taking a piss on the ground and a fat puddle under the car just about everywhere haha.

    tucked the bumpers
    you can see the surface rust, and the broken tailight.
    and has 325i emblems... its a 325e lol



    i got my Elefant Supply Co. tic tac m3 zip up



    and kopi euro grills on!

      I might have an extra driverside tail for you. I'll let you know. I bought a "new" set of small tails because one of mine cracked on the inner part. IIRC it was the pass side

                    more E30 fun! havent really had time to post lately but i got some new stuffs for me e30.


                    i love this sticker...


                    test fitted my bumper with the new late model valance and volvo lip.


                    flipped the volvo lip, i like this look better


                    had a night out with the homies!


                    then a day to the beach with ma babe!


                    finally painted my valve cover while i was replacing the water pump


                    then visited arizona, and a couple of buddies and my lovely 87 red e30
                    my friends m52 swapped 85, and my other friends delphin 86!

                    this was after working on my car doing maintenance and water pump.... ended up they gave me the wrong water pump.... FML!!!

                    this was at 2am

                      more updates on the lachssilber
                      wanted to go with the extra plastic bumper that i had for a little bit to see how i liked it.


                      eventually i stopped liking it and wanted to go back to diving boards...
                      so when i found a night that i wasnt lazy i switched back over to metal diving board upfront

                      tucked the shit out of it.




                      then had a random night with my girlfriends camera and decided to take some pictures
                      they arent edited yet
                      also did all red tails for now and got a wing on finally :)







                      let me know what you think

                      got a zender rear apron im getting ready to put on and a new muffler
