Those seats would be unreal to be fair

Complete leather is grand but not great when pushing on unless they're rediculusly supportive and hug you. The E46 seats are worse than the Vadars to be honest but I've a pair of SPGs to stick in for when at that craic

Thanks man!

Back rolling the motorsports at the minute... the dirt and grit on the roads was doing a number on the throwing stars. So I have em off for a while before I wreck the lips... Must give em another polish and use a decent sealer on them to keep them safe

To be honest Conor if anyone was passing when your e36 and the e36m3 were side by side they would propaly pick yours out . Being such a rare colour. you want his engine . Massive tax!.You want his sunroof. Rust !. Inferior I'm sure Dave m sport or ascoda can sort you out . They say the e36 will never be as iconic as the e30 but to be honest they propaly Wright on outside aperances but on the inside different story .

Haha maybe your right... Although I'd still probably pay the tax for a car like that. Cant let tax stop us having our dream cars A 318is will never compare



I will be fitting an LSD to this car soon. It will be a custom built one from an e30 ratio into an e36 case. Diff is ready to go back together, but I am looking torque and preload specs for a medium case diff. Cant find anything definitive online, and want to make sure I get the gears meshing 100% and the backlash set just right.

Also the clutch was biting high since I got the car, and I've been nursing it to prolong its life till now. I will be changing it soon, and might aswell do an m20 lightened flywheel conversion on it too while im in there. Anyone know who still supplies sachs m20 clutches these days? Though if I cant get one, I'm sure a Luk one will suffice in a car with 30 less HP than what the clutch was intended for.
