from my e30 to a e36



I just heard about this wicked forum, looking forward to reading all you's opinions.

I'm going to miss the dolphine grey workhorse.... '88 325is with 235,000k sold it to a guy in Ottawa who loved it so much he had joined the bmw car club and already attended a meeting before picking up the car. The e30 needed a new rack, brakes, heater fan motor and new tires to get certified. Emmissions legal? I don't think so due the the 2.5" exhaust pipe, free flow cat and mufler. It had a few other problems like water in the cabin (I had the drainage holes uplugged, pretty sure it was caused by a split seam in firewall which lead water to leak under the drivers carpet). The engine was rock solid, no problems - I had it chipped with K&N. That car was fun....

I guess I'll have to comfort myself with this e36. It's in crisp shape, 2nd owner. By looking at the pictures you can see that I bought if from Parkview, 52 year old lawyer traded it in for a e39 M5.
The e36 is a '97 328is - completely stock, I feel like it's new. The odometer reading is mouth watering, 68,000km

In the immediate future, most likely spring time, I want to get the engine re-programmed. I'm thinking about trying out this Toronto area guy's work -- www.dsylva-tech.ca/ who is affiliated with Autotrend (great bimmer specialists in TO -- www.autotrend.net/ ). His prices are reasonable when compared to mail orders from the US. Let me know if you know of any other Canadians who reprogram/remap engine software.
Also I will be trying to decide between the Conforti or the Carbonio CIA. Which would you recommend? From what I read on this forum, these are minor mods that will make a big difference.
Also I need/want ZKW Euro Ellipsoids with Angel Eyes, although the plastic headlights are pretty clean and clear still - http://www.umnitza.com/product_info....922b8b7163bb40

And if any body knows where I can get a lip spoiler for the e36, that doesn't look too gaudy let me know. Bavarian autosport has a DTM lip spoiler it's ok at $199 usd... and they have a AC Schnitzer replacement front spoiler - expensive, $700 usd.

Oh and of course I need winter tires and rims, if anybody knows were to get some winter rims w/ tires coming off a lease please inform me. Thanks in advance, it’s good to be apart of the board!!

Welcome aboard dood

Good news is that MarkD from Dsylva-tech is a part of this community and lots of people here have his chips and software including myself.
Umnitza is also very good to deal with. I bought my ZKW's from him and have been very happy. Lots of other peeps here have bought stuff off them with no complaints that i've heard of. Good luck with the project and check the for sale section for some winters. There should be some there.
