sub-effing-scribed! I'm very much debating between S38 and S50 Euro. Bad ass, man!

Maybe you missed it, the PO started the "part out" process. According to him, he tried selling the car "complete", without success.... parting it down, resulted in the same desired total price.


Maybe it's just me, E34 M5's seem to be a harder sell... say compared to a E30 M3....

That's the story!

Bought some parts yesterday...

Custom Engine Mounts: 300mm.de




New BMW Parts
- S38 Wiring Harness
- E28 M5 Thermostat Housing
- E28 M5 Radiator
- E34 M5 Clutch
- E30 Metal brake lines (all around, surprisingly cheap... needs bending however)

Turner Motorsport Conforti Performance Chip
Part #: 350-500
Horsepower Gain +39 @ 7000 RPM
Torque Gain +38 @ 3500 RPM
New Rev Limit 7500 RPM

Thinking of adding Schrick 280 cams... what do you think?

Hoping to pull the S38 this weekend, and ordering any remaining parts maintenance items.

Need to order larger brakes & improved suspension. Massive "Sport Kit" doesn't quite fit under the RS's.... 5mm spacers perhaps... waiting for feedback....

those brakes do look bad ass! i opted for the big brake set from ireland engineering because they use two piston calipers instead of 4. no spacers required, but they don't quite have the curb appeal as the wilwoods. i think they are a better choice for the e30. check them out and let me know what you think. depending upon your wheel of intended use, you may need more than 5mm.
