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:

29:24 Why should it not pass Oldtimer TÜV Inspection? The Car has to be in original shape, thats correct. But also lowering springs were a thing back at that time so they are perfectly legal even for the Oldtimer Inspection.

Regarding the high idling problem. I had a very similar problem on a E30 M3. Solved it with a new set of HT ignition leads. I think a break down in one or two leads sends a rich fuel mixture to the O2 sensor confusing it.

You need to undo the control arm inner ball-joint nut at the very beginning, when the car is on the ground and the suspension is loaded. Then you can remove the nut through the engine bay from the top.

No, that's not smart or safe and it'll still spin. You can put pressure on the balljoint with a floor jack but that doesn't work on rusted nuts as I tried. Cutting is the only way.

Sreten, one funny thing to look after is at 6:30 when you apply throttle the engine is deprived of air due to the protective covers you use in front of the car :)) it tried to bite the cover with the grills :)) they are too "protective", they're air tight

some actually use this "technique"(covering the intake swiftly while revving it) to clean up the intake and exhaust of the old carbureted cars that got soot due to low rev driving or poor gas and poor maintenance. I heard terms like "caughing it" :))))) the stupid thing is that that works ...
Ευστράτιος Γραμμένης
I had the same issue with high revs when idling and kept high when engine got warm in my Renault Megane Coupe 1.4 16v (2000 model year) and it was from the intake manifold gaskets and throttle body gaskets as they got worn due to ageing. I have no idea about BMW engines but I thought I might left here my input just in case it might helps you. I really enjoy your channel.

You can also get the oldtimer registration with a tuned or lowered e30 :-) in general, the tuning just has to be "zeitgenössisch" which means that the tuning has to fit the time the car was built. H&R even has coilovers for the e30, that can be used on an oldtimer. In a forum someone wrote an email to H&R and they answered that their monotube 29577-2 was first released in 49/1994 and that it can be used on the older e30s without any problems. They will send you a written explanation for the Tüv if you need one :)

Hi if you want to lower the engine idle rpm, put a plastic or wooden ball with a small hole, inside of the air hose, make sure its big enough not to get sucked into engine, we used to do that on your car when the idle air control valve was broken and customer could not afford to change it. Also change the oxygen sensor since on your car the computer will not tell you when O2 sensor is worn out.

The 320i before the Facelift only had one Tailpipe. With the 1987 Facelift came the double-tailpipes, afaik and remember. My father used to have one of the first E30 320i, at about 110000 km the engine went bad. After a long high-speed trip on the Autobahn one valve ripped off after shutting the car down at the house. Next morning no start, tried to tow it and ruined the engine that way. After a complete rebuild the engine never ran like it did before. Always had an idle issue (idling between 800 - 1300rpm) and a slight hesitation when revving up. We replaced all vacuum hoses, checked for other leaks, replaced a bunch of sensors without any luck. 3 or 4 BMW dealers didn't have any luck in tracking the problem down. Good luck with your pristine E30!

@M539 Restorations just a joke. Iv got them to work again with new fluid but they sometimes die because the damage from the old fluid hurt the seals inside and the seals eventually breaks. And when it does break it's always in the worst place.

3:10 this is long and not particularly justified, I usually take a cutting machine, make two or three grooves on the thread along the new bolt and tighten it several times with a wrench, it is faster than screwing the tap by hand
M539 Restorations
M539 Restorations 24 gün önce
Absolutely justified if you want to do it properly and not mess up the threads. I didn't do it by hand. That can work too in a pinch but you can't make a nice cut in the bolt and you'll potentially destroy the threads. Thread chaser exists for a reason.

Again, a very nice video. Can you point me in the right direction what brake bleeder you are using? I would like to buy myself one that is easy and handy to use just as yours. Concerning the air slide valve you might have considered to clean it with ultrasone as well. Oh, and another question: what websites are you using for ordering the parts? Do the fuel lines and the pump for example come from the BMW dealer, or from a website? Thanks in advance and really hope you will get back to me! Cheers from Belgium!

I have a 2014 VW GLI with 200K miles. I change my oil every 5K miles with LM Molygen and my engine purrs. And I upgraded all my shocks from cheap VW (tingy when u hit them) to much better Bilstein B4 (solid noise when you hit them). The car suspension is smooth as butter. I will always use Bilstein. Even had a neurosurgeon compliment me on my smooth ride. Said it rode better than his BMW 7 series on hywy.

I want to say something. A lot of people online keep begging for more video's which would be amazing. But people need to understand the time it takes to diagnose vehicles, order correct parts, wait for parts, install them, and film the whole process with great quality both video and audio is extremely difficult .The videos are worth the wait, In my opinion. Keep it up. I hope to reach these level of quality and viewership that you have built. An amazing achievement and your formula has been spot on. Change nothing. Happy Viewing everyone...

The joys of early fuel injection. My first car was still carbureted and used a fast idle cam to push to 2500 rpm at start before 600 rpm at warm idle. All you had to do was to blip the throttle and release the cam when you wanted the idle to come down. This pre-computer air valve nonsense doesn't seem like that bad an idea, until you realize that it relies upon a thermostat which like all coolant thermostats will inevitably fail.

What i understood is that there are not really "mtech springs" but that bm matches different springs on different engines, they used springrates of a 320i on a 316i for example. Mine (316) was equiped with mtech suspension, i changed to hr springs but they were higher than original. H&R offered me to measure the springrates of my original springs but at the time i didn't go in to that proposal (stupid as i am).

The control arm nut can be opend, when you apply some pressure to the joint from underneath. It's a cone so it should create enough friction that you can get the bolt completely off instead of having to split it.

@M539 Restorations Again, I appreciate your videos and love your humor. It's so much more fun than most other channels. Last tip, you can cut off the tread just above the bolt so you don't have to wrench through the whole lengh.

@M539 Restorations Apology accepted :-) I am a big fan of your channel and watched most of your videos with great interest. Sorry if I missed the one with the control arms but I checked on the replies on this video not to repeat already mentioned advices. It's just that I always could stop the spinning after I had washed off all the WD40 and made the stud dry and clean again. At least the parts which could be seen. Never mind you got it off. This is what matters

I know, didn't mean to come off that way. It just becomes annoying when everyone keeps repeating the same, I can't include everything I try in the video.
