  • What did you do to your E36 today?

    Let's see what you did to your E36 today(or recently):


    Over the weekend, I installed a Dinan exhaust. Sounds much better than OEM and you can hear the supercharger whine a little bit more 👾

    Purchased it used locally, it needs a little more cleaning up but I was impatient and installed it right away.

    Side by side of OEM vs Dinan. I'll post a video as well.

    I drove an hour to go look at buying a sedan carpet for the BG (sorry, I still hate the matched Modena carpet). Typical crap. Burn marks and a slashed open part on the passenger side.

    Glad you got that Dinan. How many points are you at now, 1216?

      Ugh, keep the modena in there!

      Haha yes, 1216 points, thanks to Dinan!

        Finally got around to installing my new fuel pump last night. Super easy and works like a champ. Old pump looks to be the 20 year old original. It was working fine, but I've been having cold start issues. The thinking was that the check valve on the old pump failed had failed. Going to start her up today and find out.

          My car, like myself, is in lockdown. I'm moving and all my tools and my lift is in storage for some time. Very sad. I have a Dinan throttle body ready for installation. I may have to have someone else do that work.

            Well, much on the list to do. But, today I think I found where my missing coolant was going. I tightened the hose clamp to the bleeder hose at the radiator. It didn't present itself at operating temp. After an hour of cool down I checked the engine compartment again and heard the hissing and saw a small amount of coolant under that connection.

              The Dinan TB is a fairly simple/quick install that you can do in under 30 mins with basic tools. Hopefully the lockdown/move won't prevent you from working on your car for too much longer.

                Replaced my ICV, installed wheel studs. Next up is installing H&R lowering springs, but waiting on new bumpstops to arrive first.

                  I removed the intake manifold to replace gaskets, vac lines, and do some cleaning. Tomorrow is valve cover gasket.

                    I thought about it today... Does that count? Haha. I need to go out and drive, with the lock down going on I have really just been at home trying to be responsible. But the car has been sitting for a few weeks so I think I'll take it out tomorrow morning.

                        It def didn't happen lol. Maybe tomorrow (story of my life) It's weird because I have nothing but time right now, and yet I have 800,000 things to do.

                          Put my driveshaft back in (new csb, new guibo, u-joint needs replacing but not terrible so holding off.) Heat-shield and exhaust all hung and tightened. Threw on a Stromung that was installed and promptly taken off my 97 due to a rattle around 2-3k rpm. Hoping it was a rock lodged somewhere, we’ll see when I finally get the 95 back on the ground. New hanger bushings brought the tips right up into the bumper cutout, looks so good.

                            Pulled my driveshaft. Bad cv. Someone had removed and replaced it and did not set the gasket correctly. All the grease ended up on the road and under body. Replaced the CSB. Waiting for the new cv to arrive. None of the BMW parts vendors show a cross-reference for aftermarket part. Want $340 for a replacement. After 2 hours of research it looks like the same cv is used on everything from Audi, to VW, including Jeep and Mitsubishi. Will let you know if it fits.

                              I would be interested to know. Might have to replace mine at some point.
