Yoo, buddy,
You say you have an m42 engine in your car now? What year and series is that engine from. Does it bolt onto the original drivetrain perfectly? Can you give me a little info on that?

Currently my car has stock E30 318is springs on E36 M3 struts. My car currently has the M42 drivetrain that the car originally came with, and it is for sale. We are currently removing it to install the E36 M52 motor out of a 97 M3. Post a reply if anyone is interested in the M42 drivetrain.

It's been a while but i've been busy. The M42 is out, but the car got set aside for a while cause i'm putting my Ducati back together. I'll post some pics of the car in it's current state once i buy a new battery for my digital camera.

What did you have to do to the rear trailing arms to make them fit?
