The E36 turned out to be a car that I really have enjoyed. I really liked how they looked as DTM race cars back when, but I wasn’t a big fan of them for the every day tuner car personally. I have really grown to love these cars, and after experiencing one for myself I know why so many people mod them. It reminds me a lot of the E30 I had, but with the power, chassis, and modern features that make it better. I turned up the modding on the 328i over the recent months and got it pretty much to where I liked it. It was capable on the track, comfortable on the street, and looked good enough to turn a head or two. As of the recent weeks it no longer looks like this. I took off most of the mods so my family in Sacramento area can use it for the time being. The car may come back to me or it may not. I know I will keep the E36 on my list of cars to mod in the future regardless.
This will be out next month on DVD/Bluray. This is the stuff that filled my dreams as a kid. I’ve loved Touring cars since the day I was old enough to control a Tamiya radio controlled car and pretend like I was on a real race course.
I am happy to be back to my roots, and have a setup I can truely be happy with. I managed to get stuck with 19’s for a year because of a dirty cheap deal and wanting to carry the new tires over to the 2nd set of 19’s. Finally I decided I couldn’t take it anymore and made the switch to 17’s with a meaty tire. The drop is the same as before, but now with a thicker sidewall the tuck is massive!
I’ve finally taken the time to fine tune and dial in the rest of my camber and fitment. I always hated how E90’s typically run no front camber while the rear tends to dial in quite a bit with a hefty drop. I wanted to even out my front to rear fitment (not just the tire to fender but also the camber of the wheel looking down the side of the car). This is how it is currently sitting.
