  1. After test driving the car in California, I knew there was a few things that I would have to take care of right away when the car arrived home. Primarily with the throttle pedal. The car has an E30 G260 5 speed, which required the transmission tunnel to be widened. The result was a stock throttle pedal that absolutely did not fit anymore. I struggled to press it, and broke it clean off not 30 seconds after the car had arrived home. I ordered an Ireland Engineering aluminum throttle pedal, a kit they sell to address these issues. I simply cut out the stock pedal bracket, and bolted this pedal in. The pedal pushes against a roller bearing on the throttle rod, and engages incredibly smoothly. 10/10, best modification I’ll ever do to this car. Mainly because I can actually drive it properly now. I also ordered a steering hub adapter from IE, as I had a Renown 100 sitting around from my E30. The stock wheel was in decent shape, but a little too big for my taste. Unfortunately the 100 sticks out way too far on this hub, so I’ll likely need to swap to a Monaco. Otherwise it looks fantastic. Before the car was shipped to me, the previous owner spun up the coilovers so nothing was damaged getting on and off the truck. So I took some time to spin everything back down. I discovered the car is sitting on true-rear coilovers, but has no reinforcement on the rear shock towers. So I’ll be tackling that pretty quickly as well. I’ve only had the car for about a week now, so there wasn't a lot to report right off the bat. Fortunately I can say there will be future updates on this car, I have parts coming in and some goals to hit this year.
  2. Hi all. I have my '73 tii in at a local classic german car shop for a full suspension rebuild. During the disassembly process, the tech (who is a former BMW dealer mechanic and 2002 owner) noticed that the springs have been cut by a full coil. This makes sense since my car rides about 1 1/2" lower than stock, which is about what one coil equals in height of a stock spring. I have always been impressed that the car rides pretty rough, and it does tend to hit th bump stops regularly. The tech and shop owner have recommended I replace the springs with something about the same height, but with the correct compliance and rebound characteristics. They found a couple of kits from Eibach and H&R that both lower the ride height approximately 1.0' and 1.25" respectively, so just slightly less drop than the cut stock springs have now. I did some calling around today and talked to the folks at Ireland (who have never done me wrong). They have a similar kit called their "IE Stage 1 Sport Spring Set" which is a bit cheaper and looks like it will keep the height about where it is, but provide a more compliant ride. The picture below shows how the car is presently sitting. The wheels are 13" Cosmos and car is a Saturday driver that I'm building more for reliability and safety than pure performance. I doubt I will ever track it, so I'm just looking for something comfortable that will still handle well. Does anyone have experience with the IE springs? How do they ride, and how much actual drop have they resulted in on your car? Any insights are much appreciated. Thanks, Crash
  3. Have a ceramic coated Ireland shorty Hedder. It has been trial fitted but not run. Appearance - very good, does have about a 1/16" spot where the ceramic was chipped off Will ship.........will need zip to do a UPS shipping estimate Dennis
  4. Building a DE, Time Trial car-- collecting parts for the project, interested in Side Drafts, Springs, Sway Bars, Big Brakes, Dry Sump, Gauges thanks tim
  5. Springs removed from my 74tii. Unknown origin but the long ones have remnants of gold paint. Long are 12.5 and short are 10.5. For comparison's sake: Ride height with these is same as Ireland Stage 2. I would say these lower you about 1.5". Ride feel is nearly identical to Ireland S2 -- possibly these are a little softer. The main difference came from the shocks (I changed to Bilstein Sport and one year later added S2 springs, so I had a chance to try them separately). They seem fine. Pics later I'm on lunch hour. $60 plus shipping from 15211. Thx Also the black ones appear to have gold paint under the black paint. See photo below but you cannot really make out the paint. Also have front and rear sways removed from tii (same as std) for free -- but pickup only on those.
  6. Everything has been SOLD I'm selling a set of practically new Ireland Engineering fixed camber plates, upper strut bearings, and poly sway bar end links. Bought them all brand new and only ran them on the car for 2k miles. The strut bearings have had their press-in studs removed in order to fit the IE camber plates. Only reason for sale is because I got a great deal on a set of Ground Control coilovers. Everything you see in the pics is what's included. Located in Jacksonville Beach, FL IE Camber Plates: $95 + shipping Strut Bearings: $75 + shipping Sway Bar End Links: $15 + shipping All of it together: $165 + shipping
  7. I am looking for a good condition Alpina front air dam like the one in the pic below, or a source for one. Please PM me ASAP with your offers or info. Thanks! Marc
  8. Got an Ireland Engineering urethane transmission mount a couple months ago. Decided to stick with OE rubber mounts all round. Never used it, still in the bubble wrapping from when I received it. Looking to get $30 for it, PM if interested. Thanks
  9. Here is our page everybody! We will try our best to keep you guys updated here and the current going-ons here at IE while we're not busy trying to fulfill all your orders. We will try to use this account for strictly answering technical questions about our product, previewing our new stuff, keeping in contact with our overseas friends, keeping you up to date on any upcoming events, etc. We will not be processing orders through this account, so for this you will still have to go through our website or call us on the phone/email. Just a little snippet: We are currently almost done with R&D on some HD double valve springs and retainers (chromoly & Titanium) for the M20, for those of you with swaps and/or E30's to keep them redlines high!
  10. New Ireland Engineering fender flares. I decided not to go this route. They were $295 new! Please direct questions and offers to [email protected] Asking $150 for the set.
  11. Hello all fellow FAQ'ers, I would like to start a thread for IE to be able to preview some of our new products and ideas and also to be able to get feedback from you all. We are in the process of developing a lot of really cool products and would like to hear from the community. The first item we would like to preview for you all is this accelerator pedal for the 2002. Made from billet T6061 Aluminum. It will mount through the floor via three through bolts and a backing plate on the underside so no more nubs!!! The only question left is one we have for you all: Polished aluminum or anodized black? There will be a promotional sale on this item for the first two weeks it goes live for a price of $85.00 USD. After that the price will jump to $105.00 USD. It will be available for purchase on our website (iemotorsport.com) about the start of the new year. Photo credit to FAQ'er Harambe.
  12. My '73 tii arrived from the restoration shop with a mystery distributor (no markings), which may be contributing to a remarkable lack of power... Anyway, I quickly discovered the global crisis regarding Bosch distributors for these cars, and noticed that Ireland offers a $180 replacement unit of their own manufacture, with electronic ignition. Does anyone have experience with these? I don't see any comments in the forums... Thanks, folks!! Greg
  13. Have searched extensively, not much info for the rear springs. I have IE stage 2 springs and Billy sports. I remember some time ago reading that these struts have a built in bump stop, can anyone clarify? I understand that shorten springs sit a little funny, but these look terrible. I have tied my front springs to the cup via safety wire, worked a treat. Is there a similar solution to the rear?
