Anyone got any cool plans for the bimmer this winter? Projects, mods? I always like to get something done every year for the cars. Makes me feel sane lol.

I'm thinking of installing an AA supercharger kit for kicks.*th-up*

New wheels is the big ticket item; and smaller stocking stuffers :P... alcantara boots with M-stitching to match the steering wheel, smoked LED sidemarkers, maybe a new shift knob to replace the worn out one. No crazy mods this Christmas as I'm allocating the rest of the funds for a little project for the summer :)

Leaning on putting more power into the e30 for now. But if a sweet e36 4 door M3 that is not overpriced comes around...........well you know, I'd be on that like a fat kid on ice cream.

I'm tired of being one of the quickest through the twisties, only to be left in the dust on the straights. I was pushing, I mean literally pushing an '07 Z06 from turn 8 at mosport through to turn 5, then hit the back straight and he was gone. But magically by turn 10 I had caught him again. So diving into turn 1 he decides to let me through at the last minute. I take it (sideways) and was gone 2 laps later I couldn't even see him in my mirrors on the back straight. I NEED MORE POWWWWEEEEEEERRRRRRRRR! (said like Jeremy Clarkson!)

My main plan over the winter is to hopefully get my E36 up and running before summer hits.

Fix the driver side window regulator in the M. Possibly be girl and buy windscreen.

Try not to break anything / spin out in snow in the 328. Also replace o2 sensors (120$ for two on amazon)

i've done everything to my e30. it just needs a litttttle more tidying up in suspension peripherals ie. ball joints.

i sold my 3.73 LSD.........



out with the m50, in with the S##

and GSX-R600. keeping e30 making it more powerful instead of buying a new car, to accommodate crotch rocket

Well I brought an M20B25 into the garage last weekend (El Gato's old motor) and mounted it on my shiny new engine stand (Christmas present to myself). I'm planning on stripping it down over the winter so I can learn a bit about disassembling and then building motors as I don't have much experience with this. Maybe I'll end up doing something crazy with it in the process, who knows. Other than that, turbo junker is going into the shed again and I'm DDing my other car, it should make for an uncomfortable winter of driving lol.

Billy sports
new RSMs
install new bushings/mounts all around (already have the parts)
refinish euroweaves/iX set
tires for euroweaves
IS sideskirts
some sort of rear apron.
polish fogs + LaminX + HIDs
euro grilles/smoked turn signals.
few other things.

If I actually accomplish half of this list I will be happy.

Nothing too exciting:

E36: RTABS and Vanos seals

E34: -new cam, crank, coolant temp, IAT sensors,
-fix nasty vacuum leak (t-body gasket, not easy on M60 due to stripped
torx bolts:mad:
-fix twisted sport seats
-new front wheel bearings

I also have an M50 that I'll be cleaning/prepping for a swap into my E30 beater when it comes off the road in the spring.

Thanks! Too much to list but basically: MCoupe undercarriage, built motor, GT4094r, custom fuel system prepped for race gas, aiming for 7-750whp, standalone management with boost by gear, racelogic traction control, and hopefully if time permits this winter, flare the fenders for 18x10 front/18x12 rear Fikses (wheels being made still) with 305/335 Hoosiers.

Finally got the motor bolted in, time to start the finishing touches (wiring/plumbing)

I am going to try and pull the head on my M52 and get the leak to stop. Its puking oil up front. Then clean up the bay..remove the power steering and finish the wiring. I never seem to work on cars when its warm out Too busy driving I guess
