  1. More dm questions- only the header is for sale in “parts” pic. Engine was pulled at a local shop on Wednesday 3/3/21. Haven’t had time to get down there and take separate pictures or do a cosmetic cleanup of the engine yet. Other than a maybe a little seeping from oil pan gasket or a possibly a sloppy oil change, no leaks.
  2. To answer a few pm questions: flywheel and clutch is new as of late 2016. Most hoses & belts new as of early 2018. Carb last tuned in October 2020.
  3. Video of cold start. IMG_5214.MOV Should also note that there is no choke currently on 38/38.
  4. m10 Long Block, e12 head, cannon intake, weber 38/38, Tii distributor, clutch has maybe 5k miles on it, pertronix box. Built the engine a loooong time ago and do not remember cam. I believe I put IE 9.5 pistons in it, but, again, haven't had the engine open in over 20 years. Rebuilt circa 1998. Compression across all 4 currently sits at a blended average of about 120psi - all consistently within 3 psi of each other, so it is healthy. Should have done a valve adjustment before pulling it as those numbers were up in the 170s when she went to "sleep" back in 2004. Have videos of it running in the car. Cleaning it up now. Pics soon. I have another set of IE 9.5 pistons that are lightly used and available for another $200. The other piano tops in the picture are free to whomever needs them - stock Tii (88.97). I also have an IE Tri-Y that is in pretty good shape you can see in the pictures. Open to offers. Local pickup preferred. Had a buddy I have known for going on 30 years build me a new engine, so time for this one to go.
  5. Anyone out there by some wild chance holding a driver side frame rail they’d be willing to part with?
  6. Do you have a driver side interior door handle, the correct door handle screw and the chrome end-piece on the arm rest? Any early kidney grills? Early indicator switch?
  7. Is it cool to just kind of show up for this? I am just seeing this post now and the starting line is about 5 min from my house.
  8. These should fit on a 1974 or so 2002 til - correct?  I live in Houston (77007) and would pay for shipping.  IF you still have them     Thanks

    Carl.

      Yes, they will fit - except your DOT bumpers probably won't afterwards. I suspect that isn't a problem for you. One other FAQ'er in front of you. Hold tight to Monday.

      Ok, no worries.  I will put the euro bumpers on, I have them already.  I am gathering the parts up for a 74' build that I am working on and I have an E30 M3 and have always loved these box flares on the 02'......in fact.....moreso than on the E30! haha....appreciate it.

      Right on. These flares look far better on a square tail light car. 

  9. OK, looking for an update on who folks are using for paint & body work these days in the Bay Area. The old links to websites are toast. Thanks in advance.
  10. Auto Analysts in SF. Ask for German. Tell him Brendan Way sent you. Known him and his family around 30 years. They are an OG BMW family. He and his uncle just did my suspension a couple weeks ago.
  11. Buyer backed out. They won't fit his Touring. Bump. Also listed on Facebook. Priority will always go to FAQ'ers.
  12. Since I keep getting asked about size, here is the quote from Korman's website.... (yes, they provide more room than Alpina style and Turbo.) "Lightweight Fiberglass Parts Fiberglass provides several advantages: light weight for quicker acceleration and cornering, special shapes for customized appearance, and no rust. Our fiberglass is hand laid and carefully reinforced for stiffness. It is finished in a smooth gel coat and ready to wet sand and paint. The Alpina Style Flares present a smooth rounded appearance. The Schnitzer Style is more angular and similar in appearance to the E30 M3 factory fender flares. Both types are wider, allowing the installation of larger tires and wheels. Depending on offset, ... 8.5"-9.0" rim width is possible with the Schnitzer Style Flares."
