New project.

Ok so nobody wanted to buy this thing so i decided to keep it and see if i can make some kind of track project out of it. Plans for now are: Rip out most of interior and put in one or two light aftermarket seats, figure out what is wrong with the engine and get it running good, get some better suspension, get some lighter wheels and decent tires and take my happy ass drifting or something. Main issue first is to get it started, car has no spark. Any ideas?

Here is day one of the project....












many more updates to come...

No still not running, have narrowed it down to that its some kind of wiring issue under the dash.

total block rebuild w/ receipts, new head, head set, new oil pump and pan. new rad, fan clutch pluss assorted other goodies.

it got run without oil and milkshaked, so i pulled all bearings and replaced, rad was gone when i got it so it got new. other than ring total rebuild.

all i wann keep is the IE headers and aftermarket seats.

needs a handful of little electrical stuff under the hood, sensors and such. but i am 70 miles away from the nearest BMW parts source, so working on it is a bit hard.

here's a pic with the aftermarket wheels...



As you can see it has a bit of a drop to it
