  1. WTB crappy 320is steering wheel

    Need a cheap 320is steering wheel, can be in crappy to even uncovered condition, want to practice trying to make a new leather cover for one before I do it for real on my car. PM me, thanks!
  2. EDIS4 Wiring Harness

    Also have one, pm me if you still need.
  3. WTB E30 Coolant Divider

    Hi TurboPR, don't have a extra divider but you can get the bypass line from Ireland engineering. Also pm me if you need any help with Megasquirt, I'm quite experienced with it.
  4. e21 sport steering wheel (missing parts)

    Jbaumshelter, I'll buy that uncovered wheel from you if you still have it, PMed you, thanks!
  5. List of Many 02 Parts For Sale

    PMed re interior light and could also use a dash switch.
  6. bmw 2002 identification

    Hmm, not really sure, but from the pictures here are my observations: - Grill looks like it's from an E30 - Those look much more like Webers than Solexes - The clock on the dash in place of the tachometer normally indicates and automatic car - Interesting that the speedo is in KPH not MPH - Afaik, all TIs predate square taillights, with only the tii being available for the 73+ squaries. - Are ALL of the VINs (passenger side body, dash pad, and engine number) missing?
  7. Disillusioned with new cars

    In that case, what color is it and how much do you want for it?
  8. Still available? PM sent.
  9. Poor Braking - Help Required

    I still am more partial to having someone pump the pedal rather than use a pressure bleeder. Expels the fluid at higher velocity, which I think does a better job of bringing the air bubbles with it. So if your next round still doesn't give you a nice firm pedal, I'd suggest finding a helper for the next round.
  10. Sourcing odd finishing touch bits

    Thanks for the heads up John, but as it's the only source I've found so far, for only $60 I think I'm going to risk it. I'm sure it'll be at least as good and likely much better than if I tried to cut my own leather from the old ragged one anyway, but will report back (with pictures) on however it turns out!
  11. Poor Braking - Help Required

    Definitely not the booster as Harold said. Oral going to the floor can only be either air in the system or a leaking seal somewhere. Since everything is new, air is 95% likelihood the cause. Having the calipers swapped would indeed make bleeding much more difficult, so I think your troubles are almost over!
  12. oil temp and pressure in seatbelt warning pod

    While we're on the subject, want there also a kit to put a digital wideband AFR readout in that seat belt pod also? Or what about simply a clock?
  13. Not sure about the oil, how've I can confirm that the single row timing chain is both newer (factory design on e21s I believe) and a common 'upgrade' on 2002s. I went to a single row when rebuilding my engine, mostly because the chain and single row sprockets are cheaper than the double row versions. Other minor benefits from less mass, less fiction, etc. I'm sure the double row still lasts 'longer,' but my feeling is that's a 1,000,000 vs. 500,000 mile order of magnitude type deal, and I'm fine with that compromise.
  14. Sourcing odd finishing touch bits

    Oh and the parcel shelf, can pre-cut plywood be found, or just need to cut my own?
  15. Need some help sourcing some finishing touch bits. Would love to recover the leather on my 320is sport steering wheel. I'll cut and see my own if need be, but does antineoplastic know if there's a source for the pre-cut leather? Second, the white lettering for all of my dashboard controls is pretty much gone, are there replacement decals or stencils or a known good method for redoing this? Lastly, there are a few years in my headliner. Short of replacing the whole thing (a big job that I want to wait until I have other needs to remove the glass), is there a good way too do some small patches? Doesn't need to look perfect, just improved. Thanks!
