BMW ///M3

1995 BMW ///M3 Daily driver and track day toy. Edging farther from mild and closer to wild. This car is begging to be pressure fed.

Now the car is running great with a fresh HG, reman’d head, fresh seals, Al rad, and elec puller fan. Ready to get beat on like a red-headed step child. I’ve swapped on the standard M3 front grill and lip spoiler, along with a MAX Velocity track lip. I’m planning to replace the woodgrain parts with plain black parts. Projectors + HID + angle eyes on the way too.

Three months have passed since the HG repair and all is well. I had a scare shortly after the job with a brief trip into the red, but it turned out to just be a faulty fan temp switch. The new AL rad, lower temp fan switch, and stock thermostat have been keeping the car running just below half, regardless of load. Haven't even wired the Spal-knockoff puller fan yet, I'll do that before the first track day this fall. Looking forward to beating on this thing again!
