I bought a 91 320i (m20b25) last month with the plan to run it as my daily driver. I bought it without an NCT so first thing was putting it through that. It failed on it's sills so needed a small bit of metal work to pass.
Doing this meant removing the interior and carpets. So while that was out the carpet got a good deep clean with detergent and the power hose.
I also tidied up the seat rails as they had some corrosion on them and looked unsightly.
and back in place, looks much nicer now when opening the door.
I bought a set of 14' BBS from Donedeal that needed a bit of a clean but came up ok
I also changed all the locks so I have one key now that does everything. A new paint job is on the list, but will probably be a few months away yet.
Here is how the car sits today:
Currently the car has a 4.1 open diff in it, and I find that I would prefer a longer diff to drop the revs a bit whilst cruising. I can pick up a 3.61 open one, but was wondering should I wait for an LSD to come up. I have been looking in the usual places online but they seem very scarce. Can anyone help point me in the right direction, as I feel if I change to a longer open diff now, I will still want an LSD in the near future.
Any other advice on what to get/look out for on these is welcome!
Really love the car so far
