    This was taken awhile ago, now I have removed the orange corner/side lights and replaced with slightly smoked colored ones.

    65,000 miles on the car, 1997 BMW 328is, Cosmos black metallic/black interior. Alot of small mods, TMS engine software, no internal engine mods. Suspension is fully 1996+ e36 M3, sways, arms, bushings, etc etc..

    I just need to replace the rear trailing arm bushings to be fully ready to go nuts in.. I'd like to get a few people for a ride on a curvy old back road, see if I can churn some tummys.. haha These damn cars are so fun to drive.. :cool: :) :rollsmiley:

    E36s still look fairly modern IMHO, and those 24v are great powerplants.

    I gotta ask though, pegleg or LSD?

    I think its not LSD. A popular mod is to install the M3 3.23ratio LSD diff. I probably am going to do that someday. Right now it has a 2.93 open diff in it, but I think they use the traction control to make up somewhat for the LSD.

    I dragged raced someone once, when I took out I left 2 black tire marks a few feet long. Makes me think it's LSD but I'm not sure, puzzling.

    I also own a ’97 with the same wheels, in Montreal blue, ~70K miles, except mine is a sedan and originally was a Canadian market car. It’s an easy car to love (except for all the damned CELs).
