    Red face im back and ive lost me boot hehe. kev's 98 compact drifter project

    hello once again after alot of ear bashing i was told to join up and get with the times
    some people may notice the username from old bimmerforums........

    my old vert i spend weeks and months on



    before



    the old kevino





    had a e39 m5 rep and other bmw's but cant find photos at the min.....


    so back to the new project and i will say i done the wrong thing its a compact going to be used for skidding...
    but was cheap and with 11months mot and 1months tax, new clutch with parking sensors and other extras i was a mug not to offer a little price and bingo the old man took the offer

    now the car was untouched and well was green in parts where the trees got it etc.
    had ambers and all normal ewww bits haven't even got pics as i was that embarrassed!

    on the drive home i noticed it was gutless even for a silly 1.6 and the body roll was out of this world!

    was a split inlet pipe easyyyy bit of tape job fixed
    next up was the body roll......
    easy new lowering springs and shocks!
    also a TI rear anti roll bar fixed that.
    and welded diff

    then thanks to rob i found some cheap M3 rear lights so we fitted them and sprayed abit of trim black lol


    the front was bugging me so once again i didnt want to spend alot as its going to be a drifter so the thinking mode was on! m3 front lights allround and fitted fog lights then yellow laymex, black grills and gut some bumper out.


    now me being me wasnt happy still so i found a old renault splitter and some more laymex lol



    we also fitted robs old 318is better sporty seats in aswell......

    so after weeks of fun with skidding im on the hunt for a 2.5 or 2.8 engine to drop in her as its gutless!!! i knew that before i got it

    the time came for some new tyres so ebay time and found some new alloys cheap and ill use the 15s for drift. the car at the min in all of its uglyness.







    next up 2.5 or 2.8 then other drift bits.

    cheers all!

    Should be an interesting project. 316s are pretty gutless but serve a purpose I suppose. Afaik the 325 lump will be better if you're going to give it a lot of abuse.
