New car. Alisha.

Traded Noelle: 1992 318i 184k miles calypso with 4 CEL's RTABS going Front wheel bearing. broken interior. No speakers. its a 4 cylinder. Suspension needed to be overhauled.

For: 1992 325i 123,456 miles (literally) SwartzII with MAF CEL and the rest i will find out tomorrow when its on the lift. interior was a bit broken but i cleaned it up a bit. radio still needs to be installed. Speedo doesnt work. I dont think the drivers side heated seats work very well. Thats my only complaints ATM. Car included a WHOLE set of brakes, rotors and calipers included. A bunch of spare parts that im going to trash if no one wants. And i received 125$ in the trade.

Let me know waht you think. yes i know the wheels are bad. DSII's are getting refinished so thats why the ****ty rims.

















Interior shots here some clean ones some dirty... its hard to sort. but im trying my best.






























Spot the difference in my pictures? someone? something exterior.

Yes, your bottle caps are mutating.

So how does it smell run? Happy to have 6 cylinders?

Time for updated signature photo?

Also, I would expect to need to replace the usual suspects (FCABs, RTABs, & RSMs). I think it's just a given on any E36 unless they've been done recently. But they're easy enough to do yourself.

Looks good, just the way you described it, nice on the outside, torn up on the inside. I am not a fan of the dove interior, but I like the schwartz II (same as my car).

I had to do a double take when I was scrolling thru the pics and the color of the front corner lights changed.

Quick question about the intake setup on that.

Mine has a steel tube with 2 coolant hoses running to it, first off wtf is it? Second why don't you have one? Third can I delete mine?

Oh and nice car Interior needs a decent amount of work, but if you want a cheap kenwood headunit, hit me up.

Don't do blackout (assuming you're referring to the lights, wheels, and windows). That theme was played out 5 years ago.

Looks good man. Nice and fresh exterior. Interior is jacked up but it'll make for a fun project.

I don't car how played out all black is, I think it's sick
