BMW E36 Pondering and Armin Ausejo…

Having recently moved into a new apartment and Job all my commuting is now motorway base. This is indeed lame, especially when my daily is a bucket seated, straight-through exhausted, back-road hero roadster that isn’t exactly geared like a GT car. OK, so I’m not getting soft, I have daily-d all sorts of low and noisy cars since I got my licence, but sometimes it would just be nice to so slip into a nice leather seat and throw on the 8-speaker stereo!

Which leads me onto the awesome work and blog of Armin Ausejo I spotted this “M-Thrizzle” on his site and it has got me looking into them again!

I have however been down this road before…Here are a couple of (really, really bad) shots of my old 36. Angle-grinder spec springs, LSD, 16×9″ et15 Borbets with 20mm spacer on the back and pulled arches.

I miss that car.

Opinions please: Keep the roadster or build another drug dealer car…..

EDIT: Just wanted to include this from back in the day. Nice!

    e36’s are cool, but your roadster is beyond cool.

    i’d keep the roadster!

    those Borbet are OGs. Love em.

    E36 are a fun car to work on. Lots of aftermarket parts available. Get OBD1 to keep life simple. 🙂

    Hah… Keep the roadster as a fun-car, and buy a E36 (E46 maybe?) packed with all the extras.
    I’ve tried comuting with my ex-track car, and believe me, I would never do it again. 🙂 Maybe I’m getting too old for this 😉
