Attended a race event here in SA, that had some of the fastest Street Legal BMW's in the country attending.
Start with my mates, adn their cars :)
This guy is running a 2.7lt bottom end... and stock 2.5lt head
325iS Evo1... running 288cam, port and polish, headers and exhaust...making 142kw ATW.
325iS Evo2... 2.8lt conversion, 292cam stand alone management... used to run on 18" wheels, but changed to 15's cause the car was too slow on the launch... making 159kw
325iS Evo...2.8lt conversion 300 deg cam... exhaust headers.
325i Shadowline... with full M-Tech 2 kit... not sure of mods.
Stock Standard 325iS Evo1 ... making 145kw ATF from factory.
320i... with 325i Motor, and headers, with exhaust system, imported from UK.

Dunno this guy, but he was there with us... Guessin it's a 325iS.
Now onto some of the other cars that were there, I know most of the owners of these cars, and have been in most of them.
323i with a 325iS Evo2 2.7lt motor that has been turboed. The thing that is unique is his Dash... E36, pretty wikkid, considering everythign works.
325i Turbo Cabrio... Baur... like every cabrio in SA
This is the fastest Street Legal BMW in South Africa... 325iS Evo 2 2.7lt Turbo and Gas... still running the old M20 motor... best time 10.6 ...That equates to a high 9sec run in the states. The best thing about this car is it is 100% legal, no weight saving... still has a radio.
This is the 2nd quickest BMW, E36 M3 3.0lt (3.2lt stroker) Supercharged and Gas... best time 10.9 sec ... It has a bit of weight saving, Fibre Glass fenders, Bonnet, and Boot Lid.

Another quick E30... best time 11.1 ... guess what motor ? M42 Turbo ... making somewhere around 400hp ATW. Also reliable, never ever seen this thing break... surprisingly.
This is a mate of mine's car, E30 320i, with a 328i motor, running Turbo alone, bets time 12.1 ... he's struggling with Traction.

Now just some pics of the other cars that I snapped.
Wikkid car, making 1000hp.
Chevrolet Lumina... known as the Holden Monaro in Aus... this one is Superchagred and Gassed... think it's making around 700hp.

Couldn't figure out what Comaro this is ?
This car has a S50B30 Euro motor in it

Nice pics Stevin, looks like you guys never encounter "rust" down there. Every car looks show-room new. In north america, the AUS Holden Monaro is called the Pontiac GTO.
10-31-2005, 09:01 AM
Yeah, where we r the there is nealry no rust... but down at the coast the cars do rust... we're 7000m above sea level here in JHB

Damn.. those are some really clean and nicely modded rides Stevin. If I can get an e30 carbio with that e36 interior conversion, I would actually considering buying one. Looks stock in there.. really well done.

i drove the garden route at 225kph last year.
still cannot see the pics......
11-02-2005, 09:47 AM
i cant see ne thing, says exceeds bandwith
11-02-2005, 03:01 PM
i would suggest hosting them on a place like putfile then providing a link to the file, that way you just get people who want to see the pics, using the BW, cause otherwise anyone who opens this thread uses bw, even if they don't want to see the pics. just a thought. look forward to seeing them. also you could host them on one of the free, online album places, not got a link of hand but just google it and im sure you can find a good place, then its just one link and people can view all the pics through the album.

Thanks I'll be sure to do that next time :wiggle:
I actually stay in the South of Johannesburg... in Glenvista... about 15km from Sandton.

Nice cars. I like the way they are mostly all FI.
That's a nice 68,69 Camero. Looks mint.
