That thing is pretty awesome! Good find. Definitely worth keeping and restoring, looks like it's not too far gone.

That's wicked, lots of parts I've never seen.

I'd be whipping that valve cover off quick smart to check the cams and then I'd pull the DME to see if that's got an RD mark on it. If either of those were not stock I'd be booking a power run on a dyno for tomorrow.

Dare I ask how much it cost? Dare you tell?

there's paperwork for a "chippeduk" (now defunct) tuner, so the ecu has been gone through

we're trying to get a pre-winter local dyno day going w the boys - I'll be interested to see what it makes

I'm trying to get more info from a buddy of the PO to find out what motor work has been done. I do have paperwork for a recent head rebuild - scary part would be if it did originally have some nice headwork/cams and that has been potentially undone.

I don't mind talking money - i paid about 10k usd for it. The thought process was the motor is strong and the RD parts are pretty cool - even if it had to be parted i think I could get whole on it. In the meantime I'm enjoying a poor mans euro m3 while I watch pricing skyrocket as they become US legal.

BTW if anybody wants the wheels, I'm down to sell/trade. I like 17's - these are too big for the car IMO

IMHO that's good value for money. Let's be honest, it's going to be better than any S52 you could get locally for the same money!

Untitled by GhstRidr, on Flickr

looks like i need a windshield

glass guy/insurance will give me the option of paying the difference for an OEM screen - but I'm not sure at this point that makes a difference. I'm waiting on a quote. Is it more important to make sure i'm getting OEM seals? Never had to do an e36 screen before, I want to make sure they use the right stuff and not just goop it in.

Also thinking I should get a new rain tray cover now - might be the easiest time to put it in?

You need to use the OEM seal. OEM glass has better clarity than most aftermarket.

Seals, yes, go with OEM. Glass, certain aftermarket is as good as OEM. Pilkinton for one is very good, they are OEM supplier.

Default Re: Got another one - S50B30 content

realOEM seems to show that the coupe only needs one of these:

https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-...l/51311977607/

https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/sho...51#51311977607

#1 on the diagram shows up at ECS too, but when backsearched at realOEM appears to be only for sedans, compacts, wagons etc.

I'm heading to the glass place in the morning, but if I have to order OEM parts myself I'll need a couple of days to get them

51311977607 Is the correct part for Coupes. There is no #1 applicable here.

Add on the cowl; 51711977677


By the way. Was your windshield smashed and then a business card left behind for glass replacement...

Its a ticket from the VPD for operating a motor vehicle with obstructed vision.
