Default Westophers e36 technoviolet M3/2/5 ownership dialogue not worthy of calling a build.

The day I got the car.


Put on some FK silverline coils, and some retrofitted fx-r projectors in DJ auto headlights.

Car was on DS2s with nokian winters for some snowboard trips, but mostly just rainy days here in Vancouver.

Put my DP motorsport wheels on it. Cool 3 pc. period correct wheels, but didn't suit how I wanted the car. If it was slammed and had big lips it would have looked great, but not what I'm looking for with this car.

A nice sunday drive with a couple friends. Both their cars are euro specs.

Last nice shot with the wheels before i bent one dipping off the track at the ridge at 90+ MPH

So fun

Put the LTWs on and front splitters. Much better.

Car is finally exactly what I want aesthetically other than the diaper exhaust.

Took care of that problem with a bimmerworld exhaust

To install this

Over the winter the changes will be moving to 8.5 LTWs all around, picking up some camber plates and maybe some other minor undecided stuff.
Thinking in march or April driving down to Cali to kick off my season of track days with a killer road trip with the wife. All the track pics you guys post drive me crazy up here. Its 3+ hours to the ridge and Pacific raceways so it takes some effort to get out there.

Will do! Part of the reason I wanted to get down there was to meet all the guys on here that seem to all end up at the track together. Would be lots of fun to see the avid guys in action and learn a bit.

Its a copy of the OEM M3 GT splitters without the adjustable blade underneath.

Thanks guys. Trying to keep it clean and OEM+ and modernize it a bit, in looks and driving dynamics.

Got a quick snap today after a wash. The weather has been nice here so holding off on the DS2s for a bit longer while I decide what winter tires I pick up.

Honestly one of my favorite E36s out there. I really do have to restore mine inside out to look as good as yours. Mine's out getting the transmission worked on and I can't wait to have it back. It's been out since early October

Thank you! I'm jealous of the e92/e36 combo. Realistically you have the perfect mix of practicality, raw power and fun I wish I had. I almost bought an e90 m3 a few weeks ago, but it would have been foolish for me to empty that much out of my bank account so I'm glad the voices inside my head held me back.

Its fantastic. Fitment was perfect, took about half hour to install. Its louder than stock but nothing crazy, and the sound at WOT is just ****ing amazing. Its a little louder on slow accel between 1500 and 2000 than I'd like, but very minor in the grand scheme of how much I like it.
