No special tools are needed for that task. The fan pulley tool isn't necessary, as you can just place a screwdriver between the pulley bolt heads to prevent it from moving while loosening the fan.

Wahoo!! I love watching Goodwood. They drive so much harder at Goodwood than they do at the Monterey Historics.

This is what I'd recommend, too. Manual seats weigh less, and it's not that inconvenient to adjust them in the first place.

Just swap the good seat cushions from the power seat donors into your...

Unfortunately, the auto transmissions in these cars are not known for their robustness. That said, your issue could be minor, but it could also be major. Taking your car to a shop to scan the TCU and...

Also, you won't hurt anything by putting the car in gear while removing the driveshaft hardware. You can also use the parking brake rather than the trans.

Oooh, that is indeed a beautiful '66 GTO! The '67s have a slightly different grille, trim, and a few other things. In any regard, it certainly looks to have been restored to very high standard. Glad...

The gear ratios are not any different between the Z3 and other E36 models. The only difference would be the shifter linkage, which is a tad shorter in the Z3. But you would want to use new shifter...

If you don't already have a donor trans, is there a reason why you want one specifically from a Z3? They used the same transmissions as all the other E36s, so there is no reason to limit your...

Agreed that the inexpensive aftermarket alternative MAFs tend to fail prematurely. You gotta just pony up and buy the OEM part.

It's probably worth around $3500-$4500 or so, depending on actual condition. Less if it isn't running correctly, so I'd fix it before trying to sell. If I had to guess, I think the problems with...

That's because the info you were given isn't accurate. There is no such thing as an "M3 pump". All 6-cylinder E36 BMWs use the exact same water pump, which is part number 11517527799. Changes made to...

Totally didn't see these posts until just now... The DeWalt 20V mid-range 1/2" impact has been great. I fully agree that the Milwaukee Fuel is the best right now, but the DeWalts are still very good....

That's how I feel about it. There's no point in replacing a traditional torque converter auto with the SMG, since the SMG was was not particularly enjoyable. Either stay with the standard auto, or do...

Isn't the automatic trans from the non-M E46 a non-SMG box anyway? I'm pretty sure it's just a regular torque converter auto, and only the got the M3 got the SMG.

I don't know if BMW was 100% consistent across the years, but photos online show that the majority of E36 M3 sedans did have the ///M colors on the seats.

The '97 & '98 M3 sedan seats did have the ///M stripes on them, so that's probably where this seat came from. But yeah, the non-sport M3 seats are just the sport non-M3 seats, if that makes sense....
