  1. E36
    Hi all, my first post in here having just signed up after buying a 1998 M3 Evo. Absolutely love the car, wanted one since they were new! I'm just wondering what the best choice of clutch kit would be for it? It's covered nearly 80k miles and i've noticed it slipping a couple of times lately...

    So 1 year ago I purchased an m3 evo convertible on a whim. Flew up to Aberdeen and drove her back. Previous owner had her for 7 Years and she had been pretty well cared for. Interior was immaculate and exterior had a few little bits of bubbling but a very straight car. The drive back was an...

    My E36 M3 Evo is loosing cooling water. A tank of gas and I have to add about 1 liter to get the water up to recommended level. Everytime I open the water filler cap ( even after the engine has been cooled overnight ) it seems that there is a high pressure in the system and all the rubber pipes...

    How much power gain to be expected. Which company sells good reliable set?

    Between 17" standard M Double SpokeII and 18" AC TypeII, which set would be best for my M3 Evo. The M wheels being 17" would probably give better acceleration but the bigger ACII has the looks.

    My E36 M3 EVO only makes 270 hp. It has 69000 km on the odo and the measurement was done at 36 celcius running on 95 Gasohol( this is the only fuel available in Bangkok) Where should I look for fualts robbing my power output?

    I have just finished the conversion and almost every thing woks very nicely except one problem. The first gear is now very hard to get into. If I move the stick just a little too far left it will not go into first gear. Please help.

    Howdy all :jump Right, so my passenger seat front-back slider stopped working today, seems like the cable has come loose. Problem is, it's stuck in the forward position so I can't get to the foreward nuts to get the seat out and have a look. :( Is this a common problem? Anyone know which cable...

    Have done a search, but it didn't throw up what I wanted. Was just wondering which is the best engine oil to use. I'm pretty sure it's a 6lt sump, is it worth going to the main stealer (only reason I ask is Vauxhall engine oil is quite cheap for stealers) or I do have a Halfords trade card...

    Howdy. Seeing as my car came with an aftermarket steering wheel when I bought it, I want to get it back to standard and I'm finding E36 wheels harder to source than E46 steering wheels. So, do E46 steering wheels fit into E36 cars? Will I retain the use of the airbag? Someone must've replaced a...

    As title, my evo has fairly big flat spots as I rev accelerate it through every gear. I'm pretty sure they're at the same revs as the other gears. ie. big flat at 2.5k, 6k and 7k. Also, really slow throttle response no matter where I am in the rev range. Generally it pulls like a train but with...
