LOL!^ So true, and a couple of them over on the E30 forum think they were being referred to in that "God" part.

uhhh....yeah....


40 psi is *not* an allowable variable from highest to lowest on compression....

and 200 down to 180 is right at the edge of 'allowable' differential using 10% as a guide.

just saying.




*i* wouldn't buy it. not for 1k, anyway.

Hi Guys,
I have a question. There are two 92 325 Bimmers for sale one is $500 4 door and other is $600 2 door.
One has good engine but has some minor issues like battery etc. while the other is ( 4 door) with blown engine but body is good. Both are automatic.
Is that possible of swap engine between 2 door and 4 door? As I want 4 door.
Is that a good deal?
One more thing, I like manual car so is it easy and worth of changing its transmission from auto to manual?

Thanks.

$600 for an E36 with a good body but blown engine is a good deal. At that price point, you're lucky if it still has wheels & doors and isn't sitting in a scrap yard on cinder blocks... I'm sure both cars will need tons of work to get into any reasonable state of condition, but I'm sure you expected that. I generally view sub-$1k cars as simply being shells, since they often need major items replaced (engine, trans, clutch, suspension, bushings, brakes, etc...).

Also, auto to manual swaps are fairly straightforward in these cars, and the manual transmissions make a huge difference in terms of driving pleasure. BMWs are really meant to have manuals.
