Autopartsway.ca have it for $50 and most of us have done it a few times over. It's really easy work. We can all help you along, and make sure to download the bentley and Haynes for more help.

Alright So i couldnt choose between the two cars so i bought both the 01 audi b5 and the e30 I was hard to turn down the Audi cuz it was in great condition, and it was way to hard to turn down the e30 because its not rusted and i got a spare m52 engine that i might try and put into it latter down the road, first thing im really hopin for is that its an lsd

Ok so i changed the spark plug wire, only needed one, then i fixed the steering wheel, and im still looking for that one drivers side headlight.... i found one for 80 bucks but its like a 2 hour drive.... i ordered the engine mounts and the timing belt... and downloaded 3 different e30 manuals so i wil be tackling that when they arrive... i got the vavle cover off, and i will slowly adjust the valves... keep in mind this is the very first time i ever adusted valves.. i think the hardest part for me is going to be putting each cylinder in TDC

This video really helped me out, i will take a few pics of th e30, but i must warn u guys.. it aint so pretty in matte black primer
