1983 320i

Greetings, I'm new here! this is my daily driven 320i it has 124km all stock. I have no real big plans for it other than lower it and some kind of wheels! then just drive it some euro bumpers would be nice to stumble across to!

Nice !
Spend the money on refreshing maintenance items before going performance !
Keep it relatively stock too.

Enjoy

Hope you oil sprayed the crap out of that thing, or the winter will eat that thing alive with the crap they spray on the roads nowadays!

yup! I spent a good amount on rust check and did it my self. The only rust spot on the whole car is on the rear quarter up by the trunk where there is a dent from the previous owner the body is amazing exempt for the clear peeling everywhere and lots of patina on the paint which I kinda like!

It's cool to see an E21 project on maX!

Funny coincidence because I found a bunch of E21 stuff today. Maybe you need some of these...

Recaro's


Door Panels


BBS's


I'm not sure if the wheels will fit because they are from a 2002. Are 2002 wheels 5" or 5.5" wide?

That's why you buy the door panels and carpet too!

Always nice to see another e21. Wheels (not too big), drop, euro bumpers and paint, and that car would be perfect. What's the interior like? 5 speed?

Truth right here. If it's rust free, I wouldn't even drive it in the winter. It will get destroyed.

5 spd yes, the interior is ok... it is a base model no AC but everything works! the front seats are done! I'll get some pics eventually. I'm thinking some kind of nice 14's for wheels?

Yeah, 14s or 15s are ideal for the e21. Anything bigger than 15" is too big in my opinion. I hunted for the perfect set of wheels for a while (wanted 15" Alpina style), and ended up just refinishing my stock 13" turbines. With a drop, I think they look alright.

Gotta say that your car looks really good. I'm really interested in what you'll do to the car. I've got minimal experience wrenching on cars so I'm always looking for inspiration!

I have a few sets of E30 14" basketweaves (BBS RZ's) if you are interested. Both are sets of 5 (4 wheels plus 1 spare) with caps.

thanks! I have a few things to do before I can start looking into some wheels! I had the battery light coming on... my battery is fairly new about 3 months old so, checked and cleaned all my connections everywhere and the light was still on then checked the voltage regulator*and found it was worn down picked up a new regulator $45.88 swapped it out, light is off good to go! I put a new belt on as well


old and new voltage regulators...
