    Hello all,

    I purchased my new M235i today, so I will be posting my e30 on CL. Just thought I would mention it here as I have received tons of help from the forum members. I am in West Linn if anyone wants to see it. You can ask also check with Austin on his opinion, as he was my go to mechanic. New timing belt, rotors, pads, hoses and tons of other stuff. I tried to get all the work done that the PPI and Austin noted. It would likely need the AC recharged/updated if you want it. Runs great, interior is VERY good for original. Top is in great shape and the electric motors work. More pics on CL, but R3V price or $3500 for the forum.

    Thx,
    Mark

    Going behind the S52 in my e30. The 5 spd that came with the engine is getting a little tired (240k) and I’d like a little lower rpm during my daily commute on the freeway. I’ve got the short front half of the drive-shaft and none of anything else. Need to start accumulating the parts.

    Somebody asked about upcoming projects:
    - rack and pinion decided to stop turning last week. Waiting on the Rack Doctor to send me a ZHP rack. Something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, just needed a push.
    - finned Z4M 3.23 diff waiting to be installed. Put in new clothes and carrier bearings along with the Garagistic second mount.
    - E46 M3 6-sp trans has been sitting in the corner since I picked it up five years ago. This may or may not happen, since I'll need a new flywheel and clutch and shifter parts ($$$).
    There’s more, but those are the major ones for the year.

    Replaced a leaking Heater Valve in my 92 Vert yesterday. Replaced the Heater Core as PM, O-Rings (obviously), and also special ordered and replaced the Grommet that the Heater Pipes go through the Firewall.

    Pulled the Pedal Box, TEP Rear Strut Bar, and E30 Battery Cable and Junction Point out of the 2002 to ship out to a buyer. The car is pretty bare at this point except for the drivetrain. At this rate, I figure it will be out by end of January!

    Just waiting for Winter to pass - then the Vert will become the daily and the iX will go in the garage for some much needed maintenance/repairs. Happy New Year!

    Paolo,
    I do. My s52 car of 7 years, and I got the other 2 this year. The black shell is in great shape and was a deal. I had been looking for a nicer one for a while.

    I'm letting the 2002 go. Thought about it quite a long time - my thought is this; I have two slots for "lifetime/forever" cars. The iX is one of them; the 2002 was the 2nd for a bit but after thinking about it - The iX is very sentimental to me due to it's high mileage and long term ownership, it's actually got some legit "patina" at this point. The 2002 was always going to be somewhat ratty, loud, and brash. I've grown in car taste a bit and it's just not what I want. Plus - after having so many M20s over the years, I really want to start building on some of the newer engines. I really want an F10 535i as a commuter car to and from work.

    Priorities change! Oh well.

    Well the e34 wagon is gone, so now I'm thinking of what to do with the 318is slicktop. I have a spare drivetrain and interior just sitting for it, that would be the easy route to get it going again. Its a complete car but soggy inside from sitting, and it has a bad head gasket.

    Bought some custom RMs on ebay for my black coupe, but one wheel is bent, so Im still waiting on its replacement to show up via the seller. They looked really good the one day that I had them on. Id also like to put on some better brakes, and do the rear bushings. Maybe upgrade the sound and add a lukebox if can can get ahold of one.

    Also have a really clean 84 black shell sitting, that I'd like to make a plan for. I thought about reshelling my car into it, but kinda makes more sense to start fresh, again. 3.5L lumpy cam 12v sounds may be calling me...

    Not a bad plan!

    Plans for me include -

    Part out and get rid of the 2002 shell.
    Sell the E46 323i.
    Suspension and Engine Overhaul in the iX.
    Lower and put new Wheels on the Convertible (really really leaning towards air suspension; going to be a cruiser - has an automatic transmission).

    Let me know if you are seriously looking for another block. I have M20B25 without Cylinder Head or Pan. Block, rotating assembly, and Pistons all there. 50.00 and it's yours. We have been using C and D Machine out of Kirkland exclusively, with Action Machine out of Shoreline as a back up; they do great work but the C and D team is hard to beat!

    This sub forum has been dead for some time now. 2020 let's bring it back. What's everyone planning over winter? Summer will be here before we know it.
    Damn wish you had replied like 3 days ago lol. I just bought an m20 long block for a ton more but its in really good condition so it all worked out okay i guess.

    My winter plans are to finish rebuilding my m20 and swap it in by January 10th, install my megasquirt by January 15th, and turbo by feburary-march :)))
