Mechanical Bits — Neglected BMW E30 320i 5-speed — Project Marbais: Part 4

The fix-a-thon on E30 is in full swing, we remove the broken subframe bolt, it gets all-new fluids, clutch sorted, new fuel pump and suspension overhaul with Bilstein B6 shocks. We also end in the kitchen, as you normally do on automotive channels, and cook a valvelicuos meal.

Check out Bilstein suspension for your project:

  1. From my experience best way to remove ball joint that went of it's place and nut makes it spinning is use jack to rise it (and put back in its place). It should stop it from spinning matey 🙂 BTW — lovely projects. If need any help from Poland give me a shout. I'm mechanic and can help if you need something 🙂 Cheers!

  2. It's kinda funny how strict everyone is in Europe about the car not being registered. Here in the states I know people that'll just toss a plate from another one of their cars on and take it for a spin. Hell I bought a car one time, drove it 30 miles, and didn't have plates or state inspection. Nobody gave it a second glance.

  3. I was there when these cars were new and I don’t remember the gap between the wheels and the wheel arches being that big, even with stock rims and tires. Hope you can get it fixed with the M sport springs because it does looks silly now. But other than that, what a sweet looking car! Good luck with the rest of the build!

  4. I was correct in the last video on this car.. not only there are changed floor parts, but the new ones are starting to rot away too! If you stop the video ot the spot where you replace the sway bar bushing you can see the square on the floor is missing, and the new metal welded on its place is rusted by the rocker panel as well as under the plastic.. good rust-free car 👌🏻

  5. That E30 is beautiful , and I really like the steel wheels too. All I would do to it would be some mild lowering springs Eibach or H&R because I don't think the drop with the M tech ones will even be noticeable ,but maybe. I absolutely love the FK springs I put on my E34,but it is way more than a mild drop.

  6. Hi Sreten. I had the same problem with my e30 323i, a long time ago. It was idling at 1000rpm and it wouldn't go down. The 323i had an air idling valve, which was an upgrade at that time. In these days there were no forums so I didn't know what to do. Until I met a BMW mechanic which owned a 323i too, at the time. I said I had to measure the resistance of the DME temperature sensor ( in the cylinder head). If this wasn't in spec exactly, the idling rpm would not be correct he said. I did the measurement, by data I got from him, and the sensor was bad indeed. I changed this sensor and the idling was at the right level again. But I'm not sure your 320i has a DME temp sensor at that time. My 323i was a '86 one. About the last one before they introduced the 325i. Maybe this will help you…….SG Nico.

  7. My 968 idled at various speeds three years ago, appeared at totally random times. So I wiggled on every plug I could find in the engine bay while running. It was the plug of the thermostat, has been a little bit off, put it back on, never happened again.
