New member from Kansas City. On my 7th BMW lol

Hey guys My name is Jason. I live in Kansas City, Mo and am on my 7th BMW now. I have owned two 740i's one a black on black sport model, a red on black E46 sedan and four E36's. The one I currently own is my fifth E36. It is a black 96 318i 5 speed with 260K miles but runs like a top! Very good shape and I picked her up for $1,600. Modding has already begun ha.

Hello Jason,

I'm new to the forum, also in KC area, and trying to help my son, Jason, getting a 94 530i running.
At first, thought he had registered since he has 5 BMW's at this time, but realized that the vehicles were not the same.

I am looking to find someone in the area with a similar BMW, at least the electronics, so I can possibly read some test values from their car and compare against his. After replacing the engine, the replacement from a salvage yard will not fire up and run. Appears the injection timing is "off" by some significant amount WRT the crank and cam positioning, and am presently "stumped". The mechanical "hard parts" are aligned OK, so it is apparently something in the Motronics. Even used a different ECM/DME, but did not correct the problem.

Have a great day, Easter and spring in KC. Best wishes with your projects.

John

Vader, You are correct sir! Am not married and until I find a woman that can put up with my BMW fetish, I won't be ha!

Jroush, first off I am going to venture out here and say that you own some kind of Jack Roush edition mustang or F-150 pickup? I have always wanted an E34 but have yet to own one. Seems much harder to find a good condition E34 than E36 Someday though I will have one.

Brettski, I have sold them all. I can't keep myself on craigslist.

You seem to like red! I really love that E38. I agree that finding a good E34 is hard.

Have you ever heard of the 1995 M540i? Only 32 of them were made and imported into Canada. Theirs a shady scum bag dealership that has #32 of 32. The only one made in British Racing Green. The scumb bag wants $25,000 for it and has had it on his lot for years.

Lol the ones I found good deals on just happened to be red. And I have not heard of the M540i but I have always wanted a 95 540i 6 speed. Mmmmm I would kill for one but I am also worried because that year I believe had the nikasil V-8 that was also in the 7 series that had some issues if not taken care of and cheap grade gas run in them :/ That's too bad about the dealer that has #32 M540.

In 1993 they stopped the M5 in Canada. The M540i was supposed to be limited last run version of the M5. It's a true BMW Motorsport car. They are fantasticly amazing! Their are 4 in my City alone. I really want an E34. They are so sexy.

If i had one of those I would be afraid to drive it! Haha. I am keeping my eye out for a nice E34 but every one I find is rusted through the bottom of the doors where that black trim is at the very bottom I can deal with painting but rust is a whole other monster to get rid of and keep from coming back.

I would love to drive it. It would be phenomenal!!! I've seen a few good ones for sale and then seems few crappy ones probably owned by kids. Easy to tell by the mods. It was like an E36 318 I saw with 10,000k high beams and 8,000k low beams

Yeah unfortunately some people see them as just "cars" when they get older and higher miles on them and don't take care of them. To me, it's still a classy car and the older it gets the more attention it deserves to keep it looking good. 260K miles on this one and the first thing I did when I got it home was throw some Bosch icon wipers on it, wash it TWICE with meguires car wash soap then waxed it up good and cleaned up the interior with a vacuum and cleaning wipes all over the dash, middle console, doors, and in the vents lol. I want people to be able to look at my car and say "Crap! That thing has 260K miles?! It looks so clean!"

Realistically I believe a seller should be the one doing that. As someone trying to sell a car they should make very effort to make it look like it rolled out of the factory. As a buyer if I saw a car not washed or the interior dirty I'd start looking at ther things neglected like oil changes and start knocking dollars of. Sellers hate lowballs but I hate people who don't give a crap about actually trying to sell it. Big red flags in my eyes.
