The intro thread

Postby blacke30 » Fri Feb 27, 2009 2:56 am

I'm PJ and this is my '89 325is. Sorry for crappy phone pics from like 2 months ago, I can't seem to find my camera. Nice site, doesn't look like too many people are on here though.


*Edit*
I changed the name of this thread since everyone seems to be introducing themselves in here, so when you sign up, introduce yourself in here! :wink:

To me, a car with an automatic transmission seemed like a toy for grown-ups. All you have to do is steer? Where's the fun in that?

Looks pretty good.
I think the site is pretty new so not many members yet.
But Yoshi has some good info to share so it will take off soon.

Here is my ride

It is currently getting a rebuilt 2.8l eaton supercharged m20 stuffed back into it and carbonfiber subframes. i also thought this would be a good time to replace all my hard lines under the car, so that means all new brakes.
I figured i wasn't going to finish it back up any time soon so i'm buying another e30 to play with.

Nice car bottlecape30. Not a fan of Rota's myself (I'm more of a big lip guy) but your car is definitely clean. How many miles do you have on it. Mine just passes 244,444 xD.
Yoshi, I will get some tomorrow if I have time since it's already dark here now. I've seen your car on e30tech. Hows the turbo coming along?

Sweet
My signature is to help me find my last post like a bookmark.
Should I make it flashy with colors, and a picture of my car?
This is fine... People will know it's me just by looking at this text,
not my screen name.BLUE or perhaps a large .gif. Hmm.

Thanks for the warm words guys.

My turbo is coming along... slowly. My sponsor is slacking a bit waiting on stuff. I'm hoping to have it running soon.

That's not good. Let's get people together and go to his house xD
BTW, when are we getting the stickers and the t-shirts? (gotta promote the site right ;))

Richard aka BMW BUM here, I will have to take pictures of her Royalblau Majesty in her current state of affairs, but for starters, teaser from when I bought her. She was a 1987 325 (eta) with 200k miles on her, all stock, pretty minty.

Image

Sadly she has a bronzit hood on now due the the old one having a mishap and launching 40+ feet into the air above the car and nose diving, crumpling in half... so I stole the hood of the parts e30 and have yet to paint it. Other mods include new everything suspension wise, sway bars, end links, struts and shocks and springs, bushings bushings and more bushings... control arms, etc. Sportmaxx's to wrap better rubber around, because I care more about tires than rims (don't hate). A full conversion from eta to 325is, meaning motor, ecu, diff, exhaust, good times (I secretly miss my m20b27). This motor just went in (97k on it) as a daily driver motor to thrash until I finish my 2.9l stroker motor (the end is nowhere in sight... everyone keeps takin my money :( ) but I will try and get some decent pictures of her later this week.
