Hello Guys Just joined...
Thought I would try this out..I regestered about a month ago

I have a 88' 325i with 92 325i engine. That was restored in aug 2003.

I have side skirts and a rear apron and am going to purchase a new front spoiler and rear decklid spoiler(alpina)
Those are my main plan for it...those plans will go down this summer
:D


I'm too lazy to write all about my car right now because I have night class tonight.

here's the pics
glad to be a member here;
enjoy

Didnt the E36 325 come with the M50 motor??
Why is it an M20 if it came from a 92 325??
as far as i know,92 was the first year of the E36 and the M50 motor...

Thats what i thought too, but one the site it says m20, maybe it came out of a cabiro, they still had the old body shape in 92 i believe.

The engine is from a loww mileage 1992 E30 325i convertible.
1992 was the last year of the E30 (only in cabrio form) and the last year of the M20.

To answer your question Ivan: The bumpers are brand new.
Full restoration = everything exterior is NEW oem. (I left the interior original because it is in mint cond.)
The other new stuff: drivetrain/under the hood is all listed on the link I provided.

With all this prevenative maintenance done...I am going to add the body kit (ACS sides, ACS rear, Alpina front, and Alpina rear decklid spoiler) I added the bmw gruppe a mirrors that I wanted already...so that is a start. Will complement the body kit.
Currently I have the ACS sides and the ACS rear. Hopefully I'll have the Alpina stuff on the car within 2-3 months.
Other mods coming this summer are: a tri-flo muffler finally, some new wheels, window tint, and a new steering wheel (yet to decide which one to go with)

nice clean ride..I thought the 88's had small lights. i thought it was changed with the bumpers. guess you learn something new everyday

nope..an 88' is the same as a 91' in terms of the body design...just with aluminum bumpers.

Geez, you guys sound almost as bad as the bf.c E30 section. *shiner*

Bloodline, you're gone from R3v now, correct? Welcome to a much more fun forum. Those guys, though knowledgeable, need to lighten up a bit. ;)

That's impressive. I like how clean and subtle it looks.

Thanks burtonownz :)
I'm trying to keep a clean subtle look.

Mystical..yeah I'm banned from R3v.
when someone goes under your member name and posts fake posts to humiliate you..you have to do something. I decided to say sh*t back and get banned.

Jim you are indeed a character. Ken had no such involvement in the post you speak of, and I know exactly who is responsible for it… but it doesn’t matter because you are content pointing your finger wherever you think it belongs. R3V is glad to be rid of you, and that car of yours. I swear if I had to read one more thread where you randomly posted pictures of your car I was going to just die.

Max… Jim is all yours.

J;

I assume one of the moderators posted that phony sh*t under my member name the other day.
If you didn't want to see picture of my car on r3v then don't click on the thread. It's as simple as that. If you didn't want me there then why not ban me for no reason. I had to ask to be banned...
The reason I posted "random" pictures of my car is because I do not know how to make a SIG PIC. I even asked moderator Chris (unchill) once to show me how to make a sig pic.. So when I wanted to post "random" pic of my car...I did.

end of story.

Now...back on topic.

Jordan,

You sound like a real prick (alot of members will testify to that). Why bother posting that crap on this board? Maybe you are insecure/uncertain why he was banned???

So in a nutshell...Shut up.

Thanks for the complements guys:)
You could make diving boards nice if you put the proper care into them. They are only a few months old..but in those months I've used several coats of alum. polish and reg. waxes. (I use griots metal/alum polish and P21S wax)

Pittston, Pa.. huh?:cool: I'd love to meet up with a fellow E30'er.
Please drop me a E-mail @ BMW092@aol.com

On my old Oldsmobile ('83 Cutlass Brougham - total gas guzzlin' pimp car, with navy blue velour interior and sweet AM radio), I used to clean my chrome bumpers (not the plastic strips, though) with "SOS" household steel scrubbing pads. It did a great job. It'd take off all the little rust or dirt spots without one scratch on the chrome. And the soap in the pads was an added bonus. The bumpers looked like they were new.

By the way, I don't think I told you how great your car looks, Jim. I've said it before on other sites, but I just want to say it again. It's like it's right off the showroom floor.
