Ya dude what make.. I'm not looking for a 325i . I'm looking only for a 95 m3 obd1 wiring harness. I don't want a wiring harness that will "work" I want the right one..so lets try that again. Is the wiring harness you have for a 95 m3 standard?

Ken's (hornhospital) point was that the Make of a car is the Manufacturer. In this case BMW. You will find a ton of tongue in cheek sarcasm and friendly ribbing here especially if you make a pretty fundamental error (like that), if you find yourself unable to deal with it, then you're best to move on.

That said, IIRC all OBD I wiring harnesses were the same for BMW by body style and # of cylinders. (Coupe is for coupe, sedan for sedan, 'vert for 'vert). Like nearly everything E36, there is next to no distinguishing features betwixt ///M and non-///M.

93-95 325 and 95 US m3s share the same harness (theyre actually pretty much the same engine)

the one i have is for a 94 325

Thank you.. I wanted to be clear. One of my mechanics said only 94 325i would be straight. The other mechanic said it wouldn't be.. I know it's not my computer and I didn't wan to pay full price already have enough $$$ in the rebuild.. So 93-95 325i only??? And of course it has to be standard..

yeah the 92 325 is built a little difference cause of no vanos and the lack of knock sensors 96 up is OBD2 so itll be different.


if you still want a harness pm me

but whats wrong with the harness you already have?

Re: 95 m3 wiring harness

What mods do you have?, is the check engine light on? Did you actually see the sensor they claimed?

What about EWS? Isn't that involved with the harness? Also manual/auto (95 M3 so I imagine manual) harnesses are a bit different, right? The auto harness doesn't have a reverse light switch plug, etc.

I've never dealt with EWS. So I'm not sure. I actually forgot about that thing

In a best case situation keep it for me.. As soon as I get the questions answered. And make sure I can't eliminate the EWS you got a deal

Every single regular on this forum will vouch for Dino. Documentation really should be unnecessary, if he says his harness is x number of years old with y miles on it, then that is the case.

I wasn't questioning thAt. If I was I would have been straight about it And asked him that. If you knew what I have been through with this car you would understand.. With that being said Dino if you took offense I apologize.. I don't use the forums regularly.

I doubt anyone here knows much about the harness that he is selling. Just messing with you. It happens here. Sometimes. A lot of times. Most of the time.

Ok, all of the time.

Guys correct me if I'm wrong but if I get/use a 94 325i harness I would lose traction control and what else if anything?? I don't have to worry about the EWS because I'm running red label 413. Help a guy out. A brief history I bought my M july5 2011from Corpus Christi.. 3 days later I money shifted... I had a roommate you Owen a bimmer shop I gave him for a motor and he burned me their went 2k... Feb 2012 I bought a rebuilt s50 with 3k miles($3300) on it also ceramic racing headers. He recommended the mechanic and dude ****ed my car bent the clutch forks bent a whole bunch of ****.. Paid another 1200 to get the motor running.but it has this issue.it won't start right away it kicks and kicks. I'm just hoping to catch a break a straight answer...
