That is sick, m50’s sound so good! I love it! Love it!
The m50 is my fav engine… there tanks. You can’t kill em.
The lack of a Vanos bulge threw me, I’ve hardly seen non Vanos m50’s, they might be rare I dunno. I could be talking crap tho…
I’ve got a non vanos m50 Shits fire man I think they are rare. But then again. I don’t know haha
E36 in general are getting rare now fam
M50 “TU” versions only came with Vanos (example: M50b25TU)
Ahhh. Then m52b28tu was dual Vanos 2.8. Gotcha
Is it true there are jack points that stick out the sides of the side skirts on E36s, so you don’t have to go underneath the car? And that the Sedans have a hood hinge mechanism that allows it to open straight up?
German engineering at its finest.
Jack points yes, early bmw models up till e34 have reverse hood hinge, so opens to front, not to back as normal cars.
see pic in link e34 vs e35 hood
The stock deathtrap e36 jack has a pin that slides into the frame from the side of the car so you don’t have to go underneath. Also makes it easy to put jackstands under it
I want the “Euro hood” to come back. That was sick.
I’m in a mission to buy everyone I can
God forbid that you would try to lift an e36 with that side jack thingy on a slightly uneven or tilted surface… last time I tried that it was pretty scary how much it would tilt.
Oh my god tell me about it! It’s worse than the sicor jacks man!
Mine’s so low the side jack won’t line up
I feel that. My stock jack broke so I just use a LP jack and then put jackstands on the frame rails
I bought a set of ramps to help. I need a lowpro badly
I gotta finish rolling my rear fenders (guards for you’s guys across the pond) then she’s gonna be slammed again
Now that is more my style
