My E36 Project

Want someplace to tell about all the plastic parts you broke doing your interior swap? Or what about the pics of your foot after you dropped your transmission on it? Post up the epic project threads here from all the days you've spent working on your E36.

Your car looks amazing with those wheels. Factory BMW wheels FTW!!! What did you use to tint the rear turn signals, vinyl?

All the turn signals on the car are bought finished tinted. the rear lights are bought on ebay :)

Patron: the thought has actually crossed my mind. I'm actually thinking about putting it out for sale next year to buy a E46, but if i keep the car, a turbo convension is possible ;) I Have a friend who can sell me a complete turbokit, So the only thing i need to make myself is the manifold.

How's the quality and fitment of the ebay tails? Do you have a link to the seller, I might pick some up for the 2-door. :)

the quality is OK. you get what you pay for and nothing more, but that's how it is when you buy stuff at ebay ;) i can't remember the name of the seller, but just search for e36 taillights and you will find a lot of alternatives.

Today i i finally got my leather interior installed. It was quite a update compared to the old interior :) Now i just need a new armrest and some new floormats. I'm not finished with the leather door panels yet. I will put them in as soon as they are repaired :)

Some dark pictures (The sun had gone down when i was finished)

heated seats FTW. I miss mine, eventhough it hardly gets under 50 here.

The car is looking very good man. Your English is great by the way. :thumbsup

Hehe, i love my shift knob :D Heated seats is great. The old seats didn't have heating so i had too install the wiring and the switches too. The last two days Trondheim has got a lot of snow! I will guess about 2ft. So it's quite fun too drive now, except from when the sight is so bad that you almost can't se the road ahead. guess if this had been in america the schools would have been closed?

M Badges are for M cars. there seems to be a plague of people slapping M3 badges on their uber cool 325s and 318s... i'm glad to see even though u have had (and have) awesome cars u're still keeping it real....

All This snow in just 8,5 hours!


This is some bad pictures from the road(Only had my cellphone with me). You kan see the high snowedges on the side after the snowplow.

The car had to plow it's way through some snow on the way back to my house, but the front bumper is still OK. I Could see the snow coming over the hood while i was driving!

I Agree, but i think it's a big difference in putting an M-badge on a car, and putting an M3 badge on. M is available for every Bmw, but an M3 is for M3's only!
