Yeah, 2nd gear is always the hardest to downshift into. Takes a lot more muscle in my car, too. Always has, and I don't think my syncros are worn out, either.

Looking forward to your video. VIR is...

Cool that you're building a YouTube channel. Also, I think it makes sense that people are less interested in your E36 and full size truck compared to your ZR2. People have already done all that can...

I agree that you'd probably make more money if you sold the car and hardtop separately. On the one hand, you'll have to ask yourself whether it's worth the hassle of selling separately. On the other...

Just saw this, Jim. Sorry to hear that you bent a little sheet metal, but hey, that's racing! I like your innovative air relief cutouts. :)

I wouldn't pay more than $3k for a 318ti that still needed sorting. That's about what it's worth.

Note however that the KBB values are always very inaccurate (low) for manual trans E36 BMWs. In...

That car is pretty roached, and it's not going to be inexpensive to fix. Easily a few thousand. You'll have to ask yourself whether it's worth it to sink that kind of money into an E36 that almost...

I mean, AEM is a reputable company, but integrating a non-original DME into the BMW factory electronics is going to be a massive project. Perhaps I'm confused on what you are trying to do. Based on...

Is there a reason why you are seeking to replace with an aftermarket standalone unit rather than simply buying and installing a used undamaged DME?

Anything that shows the current legal owner and the VIN on the same form should suffice. Basically, the owner has to prove to the dealer that they own the vehicle they are requesting a key for.

You can, but the owner of the vehicle will need to take the registration including VIN to the BMW dealership to special order a key from Germany.

That's right! I should probably just buy a '94 M-Technic that came with them from the factory. :)

There is no mechanical difference between the 323i and 323is, so the parts should interchange. Check RealOEM.com to find the part and part number, then plug the part number into any online vendor...
