Hahahaha I did that a long time ago when I first got my M3. You add labor and you could be looking at anywhere between 15-20k before it's all said and done.

Got the new wheels on the car and only did some slight fender massaging. Turns out they rub pretty easily so I'll need to roll the fenders completely.

Know anywhere or anybody with a fender roller I could borrow or rent?

Well... today I put the front rotors, solid guides, and pads on. Everything went smooth other than what looked like the driver side rotor looks warped? Took it back off and double checked... seemed to be fine. Now I just think I need new retaining screws and all should be fine. Next rear, Vibria-Technics Tranny mount/brace, then VANOS/Valve work....

Yeah for sure... and even then it would be built to be safe not for max power and then used uncompetitively, so rationally I should just get a Maximum PSI turbo kit.

Nice thread Andy! Always cool to see where cars started.

So no issues with the pad contacting that inner lip?

Maybe one of the retaining screws was out of alignment. Putting the wheels on usually fixes that.

After my new brake booster and my engine/trans mounts... I wont really know what to do for a while. I have a few little loose ends to finish up, but other than that . More seat time I guess!

I do have to terrifying impending jobs looming over my head which will need to be done in the next few years I guess. The first is drop the rear subframe and do pretty much everything back there. go to spherical rtabs, diff/sub frame mounts, TMS arms, maybe some diff seal work, csb, driveshaft guibo. The second is the vanos/valve stuff that you were talking about. I'm not sure what I'll do, but new hubs, vanos valve fix, stuff like that are all options. This latest top end engine scare had me thinking about doing headwork and valves and springs and cams and stuff. Idk... what does that turbo kit cost?

I can see the images.

Out of those 2 I think the wagon is the better option. I probably wouldnt choose either myself though.

The e36 is mint. I'd tell him to keep the wheels and offer him $8k. Those wheels are LTW's I believe and certainly come with a premium. The fact that the e36 has all it's maintenance records is a big deal.

If you absolutely have to have 4 wheel drive then I would say the wagon is ideal. You know me though, I'm just not a fan of wagons. It does look like it was taken care of very well.

If it were me and I could get the M for $8k'ish then I would do that, no brainer. At $10k though I would pass. I'm not sure what wagons go for so I can't really comment on that but I couldn't pay $17k for that car.

Thought about leasing?

Eh, You say DD and I think the most practical and comfortable thing.

Andy has the right idea with an exploder...and I think Brad is DD'ing his maybe?

Once I get my AC working, my car will be a good beater/daily, but not luxorious at all.
