Boston Grün Sedan!

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.

What was once rubber, is now brittle plastic.

Peace of mind knowing there isn't gunk in my crankcase and I now have a leak-free valve cover. Those spark plugs were gnarly! They were probably dealer installed. Service manual in the car shows the last dealer service at 30,000 miles or so.. :roll:

I did my valve cover gasket & plugs a few months ago. The gasket was petrified, like yours, and the plugs were tired, too. The car ran much better right away, and I feel good knowing the gasket won't be leaking.
Braking wastes momentum.

Got my DDM M mouldings in today. I am missing a clip, (3/4) for the motorsport emblems, but one will hold the emblem on long enough to get another. I'm not sure how I feel about them. I might like the stockers better. Hopefully these will grow on me.

I'm in Gainesville without a job right now, so I don't have any money to spend on the car. It needs at least 1 o2 sensor and a coolant level sensor.
