    Quarantine got the best of me.

    Hey,

    Always been into e30s but never pulled the trigger. Quarantine got the best of me and I picked up this 1991 325i in Schwarz. Needs paint and a lot of love but I'm stoked to finally call one my own. Lowered on BC Racing Coil overs and has Black Sport seats. First thing I did when I got it home was removed a trailer hitch previous owner had installed.

    Already have VHT niteshade red paint for all red tails, mtech II lip, and an antenna delete plug on the way.

    Eventual goal is to swap a m52 and zf320 in it but for now just enjoying cleaning it up a but and making it mine.

      Took advantage of the nice weather and pulled the floormats out and gave the carpet and mats a good cleaning. Didnt think of getting many before pics but I'm happy with the way it all turned out. Click image for larger version

        Well that escalated quickly. Spent the last couple of weeks getting parts ready for a 24v swap. Currently have;

        M52B28 with accessories-Will be OBDII
        ZF320
        E36 328i Driveshaft
        E34 Oil pan
        E28 Mounts
        E21 Trans mounts
        E36 steering rack
        M50 Intake
        Ebay Headers
        E34 Throttle Cable and other odds and ends.

        **I AM STILL LOOKING FOR AN S3.25 OR S2.93 DIFF IN THE VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA AREA**

        Will be starting swap 6/26/20. I am looking to sell the original drivetrain. 1991 325i M20B25 with 160,500 miles, Auto Trans, S4.10 diff. If any of these interest you please DM me. I'll make a FS thread for this also.

        But I am stoked! Will hopefully be making a separate build thread.

        Have a good one.

          Looks like it has potential!

          Hope you didn't jack it up by that tow hitch - it's basically just bolted to the bottom of the tire well and the bumper. I had one a long time ago but never could bring myself to drill holes in the floor of the trunk.

          Have you considered keeping the M20B25 and building it? They actually have a lot of potential. So many people started swapping them for M50s in the early 2000s it started getting hard to find a solid M20 to build from. I think people have come back around now and appreciate them a lot more.

            No, didn't jack it using the tow hitch, thought about it but decided against it. Glad we did. And the holes in the wheel well do bug me quite a bit! Trying to come up with the best solution for those.

            And I've thought about building the m20. But TBH the m52 swap is something I've always wanted to do (Friend had a delphin one back in early 2000s) and scoring some of the parts from friends kind of led the build in this direction. Maybe a built m20 will be my 2nd e30 haha.
