Interesting stuff. Could potentially be a very good purchase.

Drive it sensibly for a while, eh. If you go and try to fling it about like your E36 straight away then it'll end up in disaster, and if you write a clean one off then I'll hunt you down and do bad things to you.

lol thats what i said to my mum, this will take some getting used to before i put my foot down, steerings not as responsive and its a bit more floaty so theres some take it easy driving, also as its so light the brakes lock up pretty easy under heavy braking and i imagine its not hard for the back end to hang out! either way il be taking it easy, its to nicer car to ruin!

Hhhhmmmm.

Don't think I ever managed to lock the brakes up on my E30s. Quite surprised you did on a test drive.....

The steering rack is much longer lock to lock than the E36, but with a slight modification you can fit the E36 rack to it which completely transforms the steering.

The E30 should be STIFFER generally than the E36, not 'more floaty'. You may have bushing issues.

Lol Ross. Have i created a monster?

Nice purchase though.

I'm still looking. I just do the daily search over the forums, pistonheads and ebay. There is a few I like but a bit far to travel. :(

One will pop up though for me.

Nah, rat is over and done with now.


Dude, you have a great attitude! You try something different (and it's always different) and you don't care what other people think. You do it for you then when your sick off it you do something else.

Keep it up
