PostSubject: BDGTBLD Bmw. Low funds for low fun!   January 26th 2014, 8:04 am

With being out of the car game for a bit, ive decided that its time for another budget build.  Pondered 3 different cars and decided to go for this one.  Its the cheapest and wasnt a bad deal. The others I would have maxed my budget.  This one has room to grow.

This one is a 1996 Bmw 328I sedan 5spd. W/187k on the clock.
Very minimum rust.  Just a couple little stome chip rust spots. Car came from Florida and only been here since October.  Hasn't been driven since November.

Long story short, guy said his local mechanic said it needs a clutch. Well it shouldnt and just needs a Clutch master or slave. Prolly do both. Got dude down even more and even drove it home in the Blizzard on Saturday!. (Thanks Wayne)

Suspension, wheels and a few exterior upgrades will be ordered this weekend/week.
Hoping i can save the paint some.  Bring the warmth.

So Ups dropped off my Raceland Ultimos and Window regulator. Ordered and waiting for my wheels to come in as well as my PowerFlex control arm bushings and window regulator bushings.

Had a little hiccup tonight with wife having 2 blizzaks blowing out. That kinda put a damper on things. But I will get back on track as weather breaks. Waiting for paint as well.

Wheels were changed around due to availablity issues.
Ended up getting these for a great price.



Then also got bored and did a quick headlight, corner light and taillight buff.  Will do a 100% buff when weather breaks.

Decided to take the tint off since it was blurry from age and chemicals. Took a few hours to scrape all windows in this weather but looks soo much better.

Had a little whoops and shattered the drivers side window a couple days ago. Set me back 60 but it also came with a good set of channels!!

Also used an old amp and a line convertor and installed my 8" sub for some much needed bass!

Also got the yakima on correctly! E36 clips are discontinued but was able to find a set over time from 2 different sellers on ebay!
