i would build the car n/a with maybe a 75-100 shot. you should see very close to 13s with a setup like that, and it'll be quite a bit more reliable unless you spray it all the time

3. Replace ALL suspension components (shocks, struts, poly bushings, springs, control arms, steering rack, etc)
4. Replace muffler with aftermarket highflow
5. replace brakes, rotors and rebuild calipers, new wheel bearings
6. fix rip in drivers seat and repair moonroof
7. Paint the car Alpinweiss (original color)
8. plan a possible turbo with low psi with intercooler (not absolutely sure on this one)
9. tint taillights and place yellow film on the headlights
10. all black trim will be painted gloss black
11. flush and refill all fluids

I estimate the total cost to be about 4-5 grand and 2-3 grand without the turbo. I will most likely hold out on the turbo until i get more $$ to make the engine turbo ready.
Well, since the Camaro is most likely coming in the Summer, the Bimmer list has been SIGNIFICANTLY reduced to this -


1. Fix front end with new bumper, grilles, hood, and fender.
2. Replace muffler.
3. New power steering rack and lines.
4. flush and refill all fluids.

est - $700.

I'd give it a cheap-o Macco paint job if I were you, also

Nahh, if anything, the body work and paint job is not going to be cheaped out on, to where I'm gonna cut and replace any sheetmetal needed, which is only the rocker panels. Only bad rust is the the fender behind the front wheel is totally rotted out. Otherwise there is barely any rust on the car. Not bad for 189k.

HOWEVER, I must suggest something. Instead of painting it white, I STRONGLY suggest you consider Galaxy Silver Metallic, I think it would look fanastic with the red interior and the shape of the Bimmer.




Enough said.
