Hey guys whats going on
My names Alex.
This is my 95 325i that I basically had to rebuild everything myself since I bought it from a scamming dealership about a year & 1/2 ago...
The whole suspension front & rear has been done up with Bilstein PSS coilovers in the front and Bilstein sport + H&R sport springs in the back. That also includes all bushings/ replaceable parts have been replaced with polyurethane/better parts. I also had to do an engine swap, so I threw in a 97 328 engine + 5 speed manual transmission in that I had found for cheap. It may look shitty on the outside but it is more than mechanically sound. The custom scratches and random rust spots are from years of neglect from an awful previous owner in Quincy, Massachusetts. While being very low, I have yet to scrape or rub my tires even with some extreme driving haha. I really throw this thing around corners and it has yet to let me down.






This was the day after I lowered it. I had torqued every bolt down to spec except for the lugs! they were only hand tight! what an idiot & simple mistake! it would have cost me dearly so I just got a free tow (Thanks AAA) back to my house to tighten those suckers back down. All is good now.


BTW it scraped the front bumper like a bitch on the way up the ramp but nothing serious

Performance wise all I have done is put on the m50 manifold which is a big help. It really pulls after 3k rpm. I haven't even tuned it yet! So far the car is running the m52 2.8l engine on the m50 2.5l tune! so some power is definitely to be made there but I want to throw in s52 cams before any chips are made for it as it is still obd1 running obd2. thanks everybody!

An M52 is always a good starting point. Any plans to go FI?
