    Hi!

    The names laurence, have looked a tad in the past on the forum but only signed up there recently as i just purchased myself an 1996 E36 325tds!
    My 'home' forum if you like is jon44w.com, an irish cruising site which has turned into a local car enthusiast site really... I'm from the very north coast of N.I called Portrush, my car being diesel and there being a train called the portrush puffer explains the username

    I bought the car with no mot or tax and intend of firstly putting it on the road on a budget and should i like it enough, to keep modifying it and spending a tad on it....

    ..Already i have sorted myself with an m3 diff, m3 bumpers, sideskirts, rear lights, m3 evo rear spoiler, mtec side repeaters and shnitzers which are only copies...

    For mot i need to front wishbones, rear shock, rear hub bearing, exhaust and front disks and pads, i'll service it too and fire on a new timin chain.

    The o'ring on the fuel pump has just started to cause a quarter tank to be left unused also lol.

    Got my work cut out for me!

    Anyway, cool and very informative site! Any links to how to's or where to buy links greatly appriciated!

    Thanks
    Laurence

    Hi electric ger,
    only a wee 3hr scoot from ya!

    jon44w has alot of nice cars, alot of not so nice ones either, but brushing tar/stereotyping/narrowmindedness isnt the way to go... have u been on it recently? see, theres loads of different sorts on a forum like that, influencing alot of different styles....

    dubs/euro/french euro
    racers
    classics
    plastic jap crap
    jdm stuff
    retro stuff

    mostly oem in all car manufacturers...
    but open mindedness is amongst all on that forum.

    Not starting an arguement its just that ive been there a long time and support jon44w alot, and cos one or two might have big spoilers theres a 1700 brake sleeper granada, one of the cleanest m3 evos ive ever seen, a super cool 106 on airbags thats euro'd nicer than most dubs and some very unique cars!

    My car will be left the way as described above unless i truely wanna keep it in which case full leather, respray and phat wheels will come...

    my apologies man, its a matter of taste I know,some are into in show but I prefer the Go....


    but I think you know the kinda strange influence of modified cars that goes on over here(i.e. over the top)

    for example
