That is by far the ricest 325e I have ever seen. Hands down.

Oversized rear tires (too wide, and too tall)
White painted interior
Horrid shift knob
Red stitching shift boot
Guages on a eta
Blue and yellow engine bay
taillight covers (poorly made and applied at that)
fart can exhaust
cheapo foglights
mono wiper
debadged economy car
generic ugly wing

yup, you qualify for a rice designation alright.

Well, everyones got their own taste, I mean...it is HIS car...but I dont like the 325 badging and the foglights...the engine bay I could live with...and I'm not diggin the spoiler....anyway, its your car man...we all have opinions, doesnt mean you have to listen man...ohh and PLEASE do not use those tail light "covers" :)

I like the rims... the tire size is a tad too tall - do they rub?

BimmerKris
04-13-2004, 04:49 AM
the tires rub if i take a corner hard, i got the spacers on the way. That spoiler is gay, and will come off with when the car gets painted. The fog lights are cheap but effective. I went through a couple pairs before o found some that light up the ditches good. The gauges are simply to see what the motor is doing, not just for looks. I went with bigger back tires, for more bite. I went through a whole set last summer of the h rated 40's. But with the new tires and the chip i can get it over 110km/h in second gear. The bigger tires lenthened the shifts a bit more then i thought, but it still pulls like a mofo.

Just one Q. How does the one wiper make it ricey. I have seen more eupoen cars then japanese with that. As for money, i have done it all my self and for that i take pride. This car has never seen a shop aside from my dads garage and driveway.

i was gonna say the same thing

you guys are making this feel like dtmpower, give the guy a break.. my only problem with it is the taillights, other than that it looks pretty cool.. not much else you can do to an e30 without dumping large amounts of cash into it.. and respect for doing everything yourself, thats what its all about

I'm not a huge fan, but to each his own....Its not as bad as everyone sais, just get rid of the coffee can exahust and paint the spoiler, and dump the 325 badge on the front...oh and fix up the interior, but all in all it wouldn't take much to make that car look tight....props for doing all the work yourself, its better than those people that just give the car to a shop dump crap loads of $$$$ and the car comes out looking like ass.

Oh and just a thought....the 110km/h you hit in second might be because your spedo is fu*ked because of the larger wheels/tires cuz even with a chip the 325e will not get to 110km/h in 2nd.

Maybe not, but its been like this for months, and its even in his sig! I have done the same, but only for a few days, because i couldnt paint it in time.

I'm not a big fan of the muffler either, but with the custom exhuast it accually sounds really good. I tried to hide it best i could, but it is pretty big. If i end up getting a rear skirt it will hide it. I like the badge on the front but the es on the back will go when i get it painted. It's not even an es, that was on the car when i bought it. The intereior is a mess right now, i need some new seats and dash panel, shit like that. The spoiler is comin off when it is painted to. It's like rubber foam or something I have never seen that before. I like the no spoiler look better. But i mean right now it's like half done. Thats why i don't like putting pic sof of a half done car, because ppl just jump to conclusions. I don't really care if anyone else likes the car or not. I biult it for me.

Those taillite covers were an idea, in that pic they are held on with electrical tape so i could see what they looked like. Still just primed with no paint.

when i had the stock tires i was peaking at maybe 102 when the rev limiter kicked in in second gear. with those big tires the gears are a bit longer. Now i've been tryin to figure this out:

the tires are bigger so they spin slower but cover more ground. Wouldn't this make the speedo say your going slower then you really are. Say i'm doing 100 but the speedo says like 95 or something. Or would it be the other way around. Aw man now i'm confused.

chromius
04-14-2004, 06:02 AM
You are right, if the radius of the tire/wheel combination is bigger than stock, the car will accelerate slower(just like having longer gears) and you will read a slower speed on the speedometer....if you work out the math, this will help you figure out what the spedo should be reading. 89km/h is max stock in 2nd for a 325e

325e redlines at 4800 RPM
2nd gear has a 2.2:1 ratio
Final drive ratio 2.93:1
80 inch wheel circumferance (typical)

4800/2.2 = 2182
2182/2.93 = 745
63360(inches in a mile) / 80 =792
745/792(wheel revs/minute) = 0.94
0.94 X 60 = 56 MPH = 89KM/h

Now this is the maximum speed, not taking into account wind resistance etc. realistically it would probably be more around 85 KM/H...

so just measure the circumferance of your wheel and put the value in this formula, and that will tell you what you should be getting, and it will help determine if your spedometer is off.

The redline with the chip now is 5800 rpm wich would make it quite a bit higher with my calculation thats 68 mph wich = 109kph with the stock tires

5800 RPM? :eek: Thats quite the limit increase....what kind of chip is that? 1000rpm increase is probably not healthy for a 325e the valve springs alone shouldn't be able to handle that.

chromius
04-14-2004, 02:15 PM
dosn't the 325e only have a 5000RPM tach anyway?:confused:

BimmerKris
04-14-2004, 02:50 PM
the chip is a knock off but most chips for the eta are up around that rpm range. I had put stiffer valve springs when i rebuilt the motor. my dad and his buddy found a set for another motor, not even a bimmer. But now the needle starts to reach into to fuel consuption guage.

My car has never left my driveway, it hasnt for 3 years.

Don't ask me why, but I find mechanical items of slightly more importance then painting, especially considering my car isnt driven at all anywhere.

I will be getting it painted soon, after I am done with the finish work on my custom year apron.

See now that post was quite a few posts ahead of yours. So by adding your comments in the middle of no where they seemed out of place. Thats great that you can compare yourself to a vague comment from a generalized discription, and feel that your better then them.


Now on a humourous note im not really a kid. and chances are, i am older then you. And i am olny basing this on the fact that 17 yr sister is more mature then you.

i agree not that i am offended or anything, but really is it nessesary to carry on a thread to 5 pages when the real topic was over on the first.

it's people like this that give this place a bad wrap. stereotypes are hard to avoid when you do stupid shit like that.
