My new (old) bmw

I know its no e36, but you guys are my people.

Picked this 83 320i 5speed up

rust free (except for a little spot of surface rust on the front fender) california car original paint and all original body panels.

car is complete and is missing nothing.

I love it!

yes Im still finishing my car but I couldn't pass up on this deal, I wont say how much but I will say I wouldve paid more for a set of ds2's with tires.









turbo m42 is the plan guys

yea I wasn't looking for a car at all, my buddy asked me if i knew anybody who wanted an old bmw, one thing led to another and now its mine, there isnt a dent on the thing and there isnt a scratch, and its all original.

a nice 400whp turbo m42 is the plan

well the crank is not balanced from factory, I did like my m44 though it sold quick for 600 and never skipped a beat.

I want the 1.8 also because it revs higher.

Thanks everyone! I can't wait to get started on this 30year old car!

The poly bushing set for the whole car is 480

Cheaper than I thought

Very nice, Frank. I've been on the hunt for a decent shape 320i but most folks around here realize how rare they are.

Your bf.c build thread got hilariously heated. I'm having fun reading it. Keep up the good work!
