Oh right... So I must be misunderstanding something. Tapping from the parking lights seems to be the best option, since they have power all the time.

Yes, the OBX exhaust will fit any 325, 328, or M3.

I think the OBX sounds just as good or better than the Borla, but for 1/3 the cost. You'll be happy with it. And yeah, a cherry bomb exhaust on...

I wouldn't go so far as to say this. Platinum plugs often cause these engines to not run very well, but I think it varies.

Your car looks so awesome, Jesse. Definitely one of my favorite E36s around, with a unique color really setting it off. I like your rear mud flaps, too.

Honestly, I'd just throw some Redline MTL in it. Stuff is great, and gets used in all kinds of manual transmissions. Should work great in your GETRAG 5-speed.

Here in Seattle, not too much since it never gets that cold in the winter. But I always keep those cashmere lined thin leather gloves in the door pocket just in case.

Yep, that's how it goes... It doesn't help that we tend to shop mostly at "high end" grocers which stock mostly organic and lots of local products. I'm lucky if I ever escape for under $100.

Awesome. Now you're in bid'ness.



I've seen that before. Definitely would be a fun novelty car, but the downside is that you have to run a solid rear axle.

I love my OBX catback exhaust, which was about $200 shipped. Great tone and not ricey at all. Impossible to beat for the price. My other favorite is the Borla catback, but that's closer to $600.

No muffler or resonator will be insanely loud and very ricey. You only need a few hundred for an exhaust.

It was most likely mounted elsewhere while a race car, and then rather than properly removing it, the PO just stuffed it under the dash.

No. Straight up at 12 o'clock is normal operating temp and is where the needle should always be. If it's under that mark, it's too cold. If it's above that mark, it's too hot.
