Hey guys, Iím the newbie for today I guess. Iíve been coming to this forum for a few weeks now, mostly just getting info about certain things about this and that. I recently acquired a 1987 BMW 325i 4-door that is in pretty ok shape. It has a little rust around the lower door trim, but nothing too bad. Iíve spent about 2 grand on nick nacks for it in the last 3 weeks, buying stuff on Ebay. I got a set or Leather seat shipped from Boston, which the seats only cost me 255, but the shipping was 332 because I live in Anchorage, Alaska. I got an intake, and a heat shield I just won from LukasBMW, an OPTIMA yellow top battery, ALPINE CDA-7876 deck, and so far thatís about it. Iíve been thinking about getting some sort of body styling kit for it, but I canít seem to really find any good ones. I was also going to buy some rims for it, seeing as how it has the stock bimmer rims, some springs and shocks wouldnít hurt either. I have to admit that I really know shit about cars. Iíve always wanted to get my hands on working with them, but work takes up most of my time. So Iím thinking that anything that I am going to want to do to this car, is going to have to be done through a good mechanic, which I donít know of a good one here in the cold north.
So, last week someone posted a link to this, http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...tem=2427022070
My question to all of you is: Would it be worth it to me to get this? I have the money just laying around, and Iíve read a couple of threads saying about how they, (being you guys of course) would chose to get a turbo if you had the chance. But do you think this is a good deal, or just a gimmick? I donít what kind of shape you would call it in, but to me it doesnít look too bad. But what the hell do I know? So yeah, would it be a good investment for me to go with this, instead of a costly engine swap, or upgrading it into a stroker? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Well, itís good to be a part of the Max Bimmer family. I sure enjoyed reading all of your posts, (even if some of them made no sense to me). Thanks.
