This is Sofie- Latest Update and Video on pg 12

Postby glucklich21 » Sun Mar 20, 2011 5:29 am

Anyone remember my old cabby? The E30 I finally bought after 600+ on E30tech without having an E30?

Well if not, take a look at my old thread: http://www.e30tech.com/forum/showthread.php?t=95987

This is Sofie, a 10/90 M42 vert that's traveled 132k in her life.

Image

I bought her as a shell and have since put her back together for the most part.

This is Mr. M3, he was so kind to donate a 70k S50. (The big thing Sofie craves)

Unfortunately sitting around awhile with no hood in South Texas weather does take some toll.

Image
Image
Image

The S50 was pulled and loaded up for its trip home.

Image

Thanks to Mr. M3 again!

Image

And what's this? Some weird numbers on a box in a different language. Wonder what this could be....

Oh a brand spanking new early model E28 520i flywheel, 13.6 #'s BTW and no shaving required. :)

Matching shorter flywheel bolts too

That's a 14' BBS RA for comparison.

The S50 home safe and sound, let the fun begin. :o

Car-part.com is your friend. That's where I found it. Called up the yard got some info, haggled, etc. They pulled it for me and didn't cut a thing. Had been looking for one for a few months, but all I could find were S52's and after the 3rd deal on one of those fell through, I decided I will find an S50 come hell or high water. It just so happen I got a PM from jon2681 on the tech a few days later. He had told me about the site before, but at the time I was just looking for a M50. Just a friendly reminder from him that paid off. :)

My friend Brian (flyboyx), the one I bought the car from. Didn't have the money at the time when I bought it to get it, but when I did I grabbed it.

AC Schnitzer type 1. They came off of an E30 I came across while there. Had no clue it was there till I saw what looked like a diving board in a sea of Honda's. Got them for free. It was a shame it was missing the 4th. :(
