lol... at least someone with an X6 has a sense of humour!

Can't think of a more pointless car (except maybe the Suzuki X-90, which also tried to combine a "sports car" and SUV, with a similar rate...

Looking at Adam's response... healthy life, dedication and zero procrastination!

7000rpm is doable with a 2.0L M20 - the 66mm stroke helps it rev! Swap out the cam and put in some heavy duty rockers (they're the weak link). To make the most of the revs you'd probably want to...

When you set the timing, just remember that the advance isn't set at idle, like 99.5% of other cars - it's at something like 2000 or 2200rpm from memory. It has been a decade since I had a 323i, so...

Not surprised on the M135i Anthony - they're pretty popular as a daily / part-time track car down here in a manual. Unfortunately our US friends missed out on the 1 series.

Maybe more in the future once a few get to the wreckers and people begin pilfering parts for their restomod e30 projects :)

Yep - agree with everyone's comments. I think it looks fine despite all...

G20 Reveal... pretty quiet on R3v

I see most BMW forums are blowing up about the G20 reveal - mostly with ridiculous rants about BMW losing their way seeing as no one has driven a G20 yet to see whether it's a 'real' 3 or not!

Agreed - the M20s aren't that bad.

Still - now I've bought the 320d as a DD, filling up once every 3 weeks or so is a good thing!

A quick look at the usual parts suppliers suggests that they are no longer available.

I'd suggest that second hand is probably the only option (lets face it - they don't break very often).

I don't think those cars are selling to be honest, or if they are not for the money. I think they're listed by people who have seen a couple of very neat 318iS cars (with M42) go for slightly silly...

I run the e30.de mounts, in P3 (although it's probably more like P2.5 seeing as Hartge had to modify the sump).

Too true - have racked up 150,000km in mine over 10 years. Will sit a bit now though seeing as I just picked up the new daily.

Might be convinced to sell it in time if it sits around too much.

Good to hear there's still a few '02s in the stable Ryan - who wouldn't want some '02s and 911s!

The 320d will still come with a 6 speed manual in Europe.

Makes sense when 320ds make up over 50% of 3 series sales, and more than half of those are bought with a manual transmission.

The Alpina front looks the goods - did you import yourself, or pick it up locally?

Pity about the head gasket, but a good opportunity to finish off your build I guess :)

Thanks Jeenyus. I'd say it's just for room as wworm suggested. On the M30B35 in the e30 it helps, as the oil filter points up like an M50 at the front of the engine. With the inlet set up on the...
