  2. 1973 E9 3.0CS resto - JOJ 513N

    Couldn't find an E9 projects section, so this was the closest I could get to it i'm afraid! have a feeling this project is going to take most of my time and steal whatever cash is leftover from my mk1 golf. It's been sitting in the lock up since 1988 alongside the mk1 rusting away. It's all...

  6. The E36 318iS resto (at least that's the plan!)

    Never had a BM before, and wasn't even looking for one, but this came up on Ebay just 5 minutes down the road. After a test drive I gave up on the idea of finding a hatch and decided to bid for this. £561 later it was mine, with long-ish tax and test, a service history and three owners from new...
  7. My E30 316i Rolling Resto Project

    i picked up an old E30 316i as a temporary car until i have saved enough for my 320/325 E30. She's been abused and a bit neglected so i decided to give her a bit of a resto to get her away from chav J-Euro wrongness and back to OE+ where the style seems to be at. this seems worthwhile as she's...

  10. E30 325i resto and upgrade project

    A new project is born :thumbsup After thinking long and hard I decided I didn't want to put Ryms lovely S50B30 motor in my E30 touring, I decided on a E30 M3 as the new project, but they are too expensive. What else is there which would fit the bill, A 325i M TECH 2 SPORT would fit the bill...
