Big Im(Com)Pact - OEM E36 323Tii

Ironically, in my 10+ years on Max I think this is the first car I've ever posted something about. I guess it's only interesting when it's something that was n/a in N/A right? (or when sitting in an airline lounge waiting on a flight lol).

1998 BMW 323Ti Compact M Sport Package
Colour - Avusblau
Factory M52B25 - 2.5 ltr. I6
131k km.

Black/Antracite interior with partial leather (leather bolsters front and rear, cloth midsections, leather partition rear).
Factory M package steering wheel and shift knob.

Everything we'd normally list as upgrades or "Euro this, Euro that" is factory spec. so only neat things worthy of mention are the individual black headliner, rear seat headrests, PDC (very useful in Europe), and the anthracite individual 323ti cluster that it was delivered with when new.

M50 manifold w/ kit.
SGS Custom tune (regarded BMW tuner in Germany)
Z3 3.0 rear exhaust section fitted to 328i Cats and dual piping from manifold.

^ This is the only way to get a full 2 pipe system, using OEM parts, from the motor back on the 323ti. If you can find the Z3 parts it's a great solution for the 2 to 1 restricting exhaust setup these cars came with.

AP adjustable coilovers (Coilover line from KW)
HD rear shockmounts with Z3 reinforcement plates.

Style 32 wheels - 17x8 front et20 / 17x9 rear et26

OEM CD43 Headunit w/ OEM 6 CD changer
Harman Kardon Speakers

Sitting on the shelf waiting to be done:
Z3 SSK with busings and OEM ZHP weighted short knob.
Rare OEM Compact M Sport Package rear spoiler.

iPhone photos from earlier this summer are all I've got on this laptop at the moment. Hopefully will get around to taking some better pictures when able.
