    Bye Bye Mazda, Hello Bimmer!!!-91' MtechII AW/SW BAR'd S52/SC

    What my car looks like today!


    enjoy the build!!!


    Hi everyone, if you haven't seen my first thread in members rides, http://www.r3vlimited.com/board/showthread.php?t=230564, there's the link, i thought it was more appropriate to move my car to the project forum because ill be updating frequently...

    So, here is my old
    This is a 2004 RX-8, it is fully loaded with factory options, i upgraded to coilovers (Tein Flex), bigger wheels (Enkei RPF1), and wider tires (275 all around). This car was fun, but looking for something with more potential!!!





    Then i got this! a 1991 318is










    So my goal for this car is to swap it!... for the engine, i just want a little power... for the suspension, i just want to tighten it a bit... and i want black interior including headliner...

    RE: Lets do the interior

    I wanted to start with the interior, so went locally to search for parts... luckily, someone was parting out his 1991 318is... so here are some pics after i stripped the sellers car





    Removing the headliner is extensive... had to remove all of the windows out and the sunroof for it to be extracted! I also took his whole black interior INCLUDING THE BLACK HEADLINER... but i left my tan driver seat because he needed it
    Here is the black interior all in the corner

    and here is the black headliner hanging on my ping pong table


    Before i start the headliner, i wanted to remove most of the interior so i have room









    might aswell clean the trunk, so lets strip it




    Nasty!!!



    Shock mount blew, you can see rubber shreds around the tower

          Lets do the suspension!

          lets move on to something else and go back to the interior later... lets do the suspension!
          lets start of with some pictures underneath the car















          right now i have the stock engine(m42) married with the uber!! getrag 240(both reserved for my buddy marv), and an open 4:10 diff... Currently installed is a set of blown bilstein shocks, Weitec springs (idk the brand? but owner said it was rare), and lots of worn bushings!!!
