E36 323i auto South Africa build Australian delivered
Any thoughts appreciated guys n gals,
I'm just about to do a rally across australia,(poor mans cannon ball)
So the car I've picked I traded at work and too be honest its cost very very little.
It's a 323i sedan e36 (last of, I know cause I sold em new!!)
It's an auto in brilliant red full cow with 15"'s (rally tyres go to 15 max so happy) its got a sunroof and cruise and that's about it, the clear is starting too peel off on the rear pass door and the bonnet (after i hit it with work's high pressure hot gurney) as its been owned by an old chap (82) and left outside as a Daily driver, he has serviced it all it's life every 7,000kms it's only done 137kms since new.......
So we were going to put a cage in next week, but now the starter seems to have dryed out and starts on every third go? Is there an inspection hole that I can squirt crc grease into that will sort the problem or do I have to remove the damn thing and clean it up?
Sounds like a softcock comment but I'm working on the floor (it's Australia and there is mad shit crawling around red back things, white tail spiders etc........)
Any thoughts let me know, my real thoughts are sell it for 6 grand and buy another ........ With a manual box and LSD (have to be a 318is ,or 323/325is)
If anyone in oz reads this and wants a newer car and has an older with more or less klms in a manual I'm happy to straight swap if youve got big wheels and want To keep them thats fine, i'm happy with the 15" as rally tyres are 15" max, this car is to good to destroy as aust can be very gruelling when driving through 45 degrees over really bad terrain flat out
