Default My 98 Dakar Yellow "build" thread

Hello folks,


I've purchased this mint e36 m3 from a member here (@romango3 I believe)

Car has currently 97k milles.

Here are the following mods :

Max velocity front lip
Euro headlights
Fog deletes
Mtech 2 steering wheel
Akg rear camber arms
Stud conversion
Abrahams ltw wing
Fortune 500 coilovers
As track pipe
Stromung exhaust
Uuc evo 3 short shifter
Akg dssr
Zhp shift knob

Pretty sure that's it for aftermarket stuff

How car looks now :














So far I've done the airbag simulator mod, basically putting a resistor to simulate that the airbag is still there.







And added some redline friction modifier to get rid of low speed noises in the diff.



Also purchased a glove box which I will replace because mine is sagging and I can't stand it.

For the rest, car will stay mostly as it is expect from new wheels.

Wheels are fine.

Don't need a new glovebox to fix sagging. It's not the box.

Nice car.

I don't dislike the wheels, but they are a pain in the ass to clean.

What would fix the glove box ? I saw people fixing it with screws but didn't work on mine. I bought the whole glove box with the airbag. Will see if it's better.

Loved Roman's car. Take good care of it.
If you crank the coils up 3/4 of an inch or so I bet you will like it even more, and save yourself some stress.

Congrats! I agree with the above, car would look a lot better raised up a bit but otherwise very nice!

Car will be raised during winter while sleeping in the garage. I'll also shop for another set of wheels. They ones the owner had before really go well with the car :
