Picked up an 85 325E a week or two ago now and pretty excited to start turning this into a weekend warrior for open lapping/autoX car. 350xxx km young with a rebuild 100k ago. I've been lurking the forums for a little now for wheel/tire sizes for track/ street use (15x8 C1's with a 225/45 RS3's). I have no problem rolling the fenders to make these fit… hopefully they will without flares.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated

Goals
Seat time
wheels/rubber
brakes
LSD
dampers/springs
885 head swap.
Somewhere along the line I imagine I have a bunch of bushings to replace lol.
Recommended vendors to check out, anything on our side of the boarder?

Google will be your friend... my other go-to forums (other than max) are BimmerForums and R3V. Tons of great info out there.

My go to shop for parts is germanparts.ca and yes there are others. Personally, I'm not big into online shopping. Prefer dealing with real people, and the guys there have never steered me wrong. For Canadian prices, they are competitive for sure.

And you can totally enjoy the Eta engine... it's no track beast, but get her out on some twisty roads once you do some refreshing of your suspension, bushings, etc. and you'll have a blast.

Number one important thing on the maintenance list is your timing belt. Unless you have definite proof this has been done in the last 90K km or 5 years, GET IT DONE!!!

Then go from there as your budget and needs allow... take care of the important stuff like brakes, suspension, etc. before starting to customize. You'll be happier starting out with a well maintained car before dicking around with other things.
