Thread: 1981 BMW E21 320i in Alpinweiss, my plans to go from rough to tough

  1. #176
    Last night I went to an E21 only gtg. Fun times! I didn't bring my camera and my phone battery died so no photos. Too bad too, because 3 of us had alpine white cars. Mike, they were telling me the same thing about the headlights, that and a million other things. My car was the most stock by a long shot.

    Nice, they give you any new ideas for things to fix/upgrade?

    Yeah, they told me to rip out the motor and put in a M20. And that Ground Control coilovers are the best way to go outside of lowering springs.

    Dang guess i didnt notice it says "have an early model e21 (77-79) euro HVAC panel. Its all in german $30. I also have a never mounted 13x6 BBS-MAHLE spare $80. And the m20b23 engine that came out of my 81 henna 323i that I wrecked $400. That car pulled hard!"

    I just saw what you were talking about. Efff the console, I want that motor he's selling! M20B23 would pep up the car quite a bit.

    So would I. M20's are a dime a dozen. I'd give him $400 if it included everything needed for the swap.

    Yep and at that price you could build yourself a 2.7 stroker from an IS and E M20

    Well, you can't have progress, without a little destruction. So, I went a little too fast around a corner and smacked a corner.




    The tire still holds air, but the alignment is off now.

    Oh, I just remembered the best news of the night. Apparently, you can order any BMW part, regardless of what market it's for. So, I can just go down to Kuni or Rasmussen and order euro bumpers.

    oops. crub up another.
    now you have an excuse to rebuild the suspension and replace the wheels

  15. #190
    The suspension is still fine. But, it is time to get some wheels. Hmmm. I know a guy with some wheels for sale.........

    True but you're also more familiar with that car and know its strengths/limits and it wouldn't of happened.
    No biggie...

  19. #194
    That's true. This is pretty untimely too. I just got the wagon aligned after procrastinating doing it. Come to find out my toe has been off and I've been scrubbing my tires. I have to replace my 218/40/18s within the next couple of months. Crap. Gonna have to sell some sperm!

    Ooooh. A totaled E36 M3 just popped up on CL. S52B32 baby!



    308lbs motor with 240hp. It weighs more than I like but that's wonderful amount of power!

    But, the guy selling it wants $1500. It's a fair price but too much for me right now. In other news: The BMW Haus guy just offered me a M20B23, tranny and driveline for $160!

    So nice! I hope I can pull my car off close to that. Although, no Alpina parts for me.

    Today I hope to pick up an engine and an engine stand. Keep your fingers crossed.
