View Full Version : Feeler- My E36 Vert with 18"BBS RS

06-13-2009, 07:54 PM
Hey Guys.

Well after spending a rediculous amount of time and money on the car. I've decided I'd like to sell it, and buy myself a nice new truck. Preferably, an Avalanche/Tahoe/Yukon! V8*drink*

Car was originally a 96 328i Convertible with 260k

The car was painted original Schwarz 2 about a month and a half ago at Cool1 Auto Collision. Nothing was spared on the paint job. Carpets ,seats and center console were all removed to attend to some rust under the brake pedal. Fender's were taken off along with the wheel well liner to clean off and repair any rust spots! The fenders and 1/4 panels have been Pulled to accomodate my 18" BBS RS285 8.5"wide et 13 rims. All Moldings and side skirts recieved new clips from BMW.

Original M3 bumpers, mirrors, sport skirts, and trunk lip spoiler bought new at BMW while car was being painted. Aswell 97+ nosing added with washer jet delete.

Headlights are Depo with ccfl angel eyes. 10,000k DDM H.I.D kit with 55W ballasts. Fog lights aswell are depos, with DDM's 10,000K 55W Ballast Kit. Smoked corners/side markers with the chrome/Amber lightbulbs. Rear lights are O.E Me clear/red.

Interior was upgraded with a set of extremely clean Black Vaders, Carbon fiber center console and glove box trim piece. Momo Pilota steering wheel with Momo hub. M3 cluster and Momo course shift knob. Floor matts are from Bav Auto. Also a BMW windscreen. (actually makes a big difference when the tops down)

JVC KD-DV7300 Deck with USB connector and ipod ready/remote. 7" touch screen replacing the obc/sunglasses holder. Month old Optima Yellow Top Battery. Stinger 4gauge amp wiring kit with oldschool, Rockford fosgate P2 subwoofer in sealed box with Jenson 4channel Amp.

Engine/Drive Train:

Unlike another well known e36 vert on this forum, This one was completely swapped with parts from a 98 M3 with 64,000miles. M3 parts were all bought off highline Motors!
That includes:
SuperSprint Dual in Dual out Muffler/M3 exhaust manifold down to the muffler
Tranny with royal purple transmission oil
UUC 8.5lbs Aluminum Flywheel/ OEM E34 M5 clutch with UUC stainless steel braided transmission line
Driveshaft with new Guibo/center support bearing.
power steering rack
rear subframe with New UUC Polyeurothane bushings
3.38lsd differential flushed with royal purple diff oil
cv shafts
control arms
Rear control arms with new Ball joints
trailing arms
hubs with brand new bearings on all 4 corners
Front and rear M3 brakes including PBR Delux carbon ceramic pads On cross drilled/slotted rotors.
UUC Stainless Steel Braided brake lines with Motul dot5 Brake fluid
M3 Brake Booster/Master cylinder
Brand New handbrake cables, spring kit, shoes and backing plates!
Koni Coilovers w/9way dampening.
Alignment Performed at woodbridge alignment after suspension install.

Tune up has already been done Within the last 2weeks including
Fuel filter
Spark plugs
water pump
aux fan switch
coolant flush
Oil change

Rims are 18" BBS RS which were recently refinished. The job done on them was not what I wanted but looks good none the less. Brand New BBS bolts/BBS Caps and air valves. Silver centers/polished lips. The rims were originally made for 5/6series BMW's so they do poke out, which is why I had to pull the fenders when I had the body work done.

Tires are Wonlly S-1088 215/35/ZR18 (Stretched)

I believe thats all. If anyone would like to check out the car I can bring it to the weekly friday meets and you can all overlook the car.

Now as for the price. I have honestly spent over 34g's on this car. And I'm obviously not expecting to recover that amount back. I have no problem with the mechanic of your choice looking over the car Or easier for you call Rocco at Rmp as he did all the major and lot's of the minor work to my car!

Im asking 22,000obo.

With that price dont forget this was not a $1500 Paint job. Body work ran me $4900.

Rims were $1500 +$600 In the 136 rim bolts/BBS caps and air valves. and $600 in tires. Plus everything else done on the car.

Anyways opinions and suggestions accepted. Trades only for trucks listed above.

Thank You

HAHA gutless!

At friday's meet I couldn't decide if I liked the RSs or the Style 5s better.

I can vouch for this car as I have seen it through most of its transformations and know the owner's pursuit on creating a fantastic M3 Spec speciment.

Honestly dude, if you are planning on selling it(which you shouldn't) and getting into a truck, you shouldn't be considering ANYTHING other than A 2002+ Range Rover, X5 4.4/4.6, or Mercedes ML55 AMG. Nothing else will provide the performance/luxury/appeal that you've come accustomed with from your E36.

Goodluck nonetheless.

As Far as I know, no it's not.

Thanks Terry,
Ive considered buying a lux suv such as the x5, and the range (not a fan of mercedes) but Insurance would be more then what I'm willing to pay. Plus I want something that I really dont have to worry about. Meaning if I know if I get a x5 id be the same paranoid ass I am with the vert.

I also forgot to mention. The car also has a CompuStar Pro 2way paging alarm system. With microwave pad for when the top is down.

I say keep it as a weekend cruiser and buy the SUV for weekday/winter driving.

BTW: I am currently having a kanetic headgasket with arp headbolts installed. After the temperature started getting a little funky I decided it's prob the best thing to do. Just so there's no issues later on!
