Hey Jarrid, if you see this thread, you can't put an LSx into an E36 and have insurance in Ontario.

Hey, one of those cars is BigFellers coupe (6.5K). If so, he is a great guy (honest seller) and I'd buy a car off him even if it didn't work.

Re: Need help E36 m3 or E30 325is???

WHatever you get, make sure it has good tires if it is a RWD car. Many teenagers get a nasty surprise running bald tires through puddles. If it gets cold where you live, you will need two sets.

good point. There should be a Plaque stating # of 45 on a Cdn spec car. Quite a few Japanese Euros come into Vancouver. Great cars IMHO.

I'd say to buy a Go Cart. Way better than a track car, easy to maintain, what a thrill.
If he can't be dissuaded, buy someone else's track car, as it will be cheaper than rolling your own.

Re: Getting Car Painted

It is a clear film made by 3M that is applied on surfaces that see a lot of road rash. I did my hood, mirrors, and nose panel when I bought my car. That paint will be perfect the day I take it off.
