Well the next day while showering I was having an extended deep thinking session, and for whatever reason I thought about bimmerfest, and made the decision to make this thread (in the OT I was just kickin tires). So yeah, thats how that went.

By the way, I'll add a new requirement: BMW 3 series (E30, E36, etc) items only. Its great if you bought LED lights for a maxima, but nobody cares because this is a BMW forum

From this it looks like Elvira is infact an E36 and would therefore fall under the parameters set by Chad. Did you mean Katja, the 635CSI? .

P.S. I personally would care more about hearing where to get parts for a 635 than I would about any 3er beyond the E36.

My condolences good buddy. Thank God it's Friday.... in 17 minutes, and 17 hours after that I intend to be at least half way through a beer. I highly recommend you join me ... In spirit of course, it would obviously be problematic for the two of us to actually have a drink in the same place.

Back on topic though:

The Raceland headers seem to be of reasonable build quality, stainless steel, and weren't too big of a PITA to install. There are MANY other pages open to the debate of Raceland Coil Overs, so we do NOT need another here please.

I've heard of them having mounting/fitment issues. Is this not the case?

It did require a little 'English' to line it up, but with a little effort, all was bent the right way.

At 250 and 300 pounds per inch those are going to be more feather bed feel than hay wagon.

I just woke up from my nap.

Got me ebay emblem today. Looks pretty good actually. It has a BMW part # and stamp on the back, if that means anything. For 3 bucks I'm damn happy. It looks like it could be a degree or two off, but like I said, three bucks...

Fog lights-great

Corners-great


I'll be ordering an ebay brand of seats sometime soon, I'll let everyone know the quality of them.

The real leather ebay seats are good, haven't had any issues after a few months.
