    Back to the fold

    Couldn't stay away too long, took the plunge and got another sweet little red
    coupe, a 1990 325is automatic with 170k km



    It complements my daily driver nicely, and it will be nice to have a little project to play with, here's the daily:

    Already did a few things
    converted her to manual, started adding a few bits, from my favorite era manufacturer, Alpina and some RD goodies, bit of spit and polish, already have lots of plans on where to go with this build:

        ask and ye shall receive, she was a special gal for sure, euro early 1990 E34 M5 in Lachsilber, lots of updates on her, but i did sell her and the Cirrus E30 to get into a 996 C4S as a daily driver, so im not too sad :

              Nice collection. I'd love to daily a 996 C4S. They're incredible value for what you're getting these days, not to mention gorgeous.

              Your new E30 looks great too!

                  thanks, 996 C4S are awesome, hidden gem like the E30s, ive enahnced the Porsche a bit, especially aurally ;)
                  Has full headers and mufflers from Tubi, Fabspeed cats and carbon intake, Ohlins coilovers, fully rose jointed suspension, GT3 sway bars, and lots of other mods, she's awesome, handles really well, so flat and planted in the twisties, sounds wonderful with that exhaust

                      Started gathering parts for the e30 build
                      Surprisingly still had quite a few bits from years ago, and ordered a few odds and ends from the dealer, mostly trim pieces

                        Please resize your pictures, they're monstrous.

                        That aside, Seems like you have a lot of fun toys to play with, and the 325is is in good hands.

                          few more parts arrived


                          I replaced a cracked oil cap, replaced the old fuel filler cap and rubber collar, lots of crud under there - cleaned all that out - at least the fuel tank vent system wasn't all rotten like on my previous e30s, this ride has seen very little winter service

                          also added euro bumper trim, rear license plate filler plate, e30 M3 Evo sport hood seals, floor mat tie downs, and i removed the trunk insulation to save weight

                          new hood and trunk roundels going on, and i'm awaiting my BMW order of factory connectors and plugs so i can install the euro elipsoids


                          after that it's a head unit and update the speakers, and start collecting the rest of the parts for a suspension update - usual billie sports, upper rear mounts, powerflex bushings all around, offset front control arm bushings, Ireland or ST sway bar kit...etc.

                          For exhaust i'm gonna order a full stainless Supersprint system - headers, mid pipe and muffler - that means i'll need a new muffler install kit, probably will get an O2 sensor...the fun never stops

                          then it'll be decision time on wheels

                              Give https://imgbb.com/ a shot for resizing photos. IMO way better than photobucket.
