Hi All, just stumbled across this site
Bought 1st every BMW in March 09, 1997 3.0 M3 87k as a Track project for ongoing nurburging obsession. Love that place. Its a good solid car with FSH and no issues.
This car is my first ever rwd having been brought up on turbo charged fwd/4wd and two wheels. Like rwd a lot just need more practice
Work on the car to date is ok, not quite as quick as would have liked but never enough time or money. Currently getting it ready for rollcage.
Progress to date:
Cosmetic - stopped mouldings falling off.
General Maintanence - lots. 1st name terms with BMW parts bloke.
Suspension - KW v3, Eibach Top mounts/Camber arms, Full powerflex, all other bushes/balljoint replaced, rear beam mounts reinforced. Pro setup.
Brakes - AP 4 Pot front and improved rears.
Car's broken its cherry at the ring, been driven to Germany, hammered and driven back without breaking anything. It managed consecutive 4 ring laps without overheating anything, this is a first ever for me (on 4 wheels) and a positive sign of things to come.
