When we first started going to car shows, we realized it would be fun to host our own get together here at eEuroparts.com. It was a fun time, burgers were served. In terms of event hosting, it was a good taste, but really just a side dish. The 2nd annual eEuroparts Car Show and Swap Meet went bigger, with an actual food cart this time Too bad their frialator broke and the line for delicious fried treats extended all the way to the BMW section. More European cars full of people came, and it started to feel like the field of dreams. The swap meet section was packed with some really cool rare stuff that was actually finding new homes The third time around, we packed the place. Multiple food carts ensured that people not only stayed fed while they hung out in our blacktop palace, they were also unable to move for at least an hour. Alas, we need to go one deeper. We ...Read More

After all of the critical measurements needed on the crankshaft were done, it was time to put it back into its home with some fresh bearings to continue the engine build. Since there was no noticeable wear on the crankshaft, standard-size replacement bearings were used along with an appropriate amount of assembly lube. The torque specifications for all of the main crankcase bolts are torque-to-angle, which requires you to set the bolt up with a relatively low torque setting first, then finish with a final turned angle using an angle meter. Digital angle torque wrenches are great tools, but can be fairly expensive for the home mechanic. I've been using these manual angle gauges and although they take a little longer to set up on each bolt, I'm happy with the results and no batteries required. After using the proper torque sequence, the crank is in, spins nicely ...Read More

It all started with a search on Craigslist's casual encounters Kidding. Ehem. It all started with a regular old search on Craigslist. It was around the time in my life when my friends and I were getting our hands on European cars. We were used to dropping modified carburetor V8s into everything from Camaros to Chevy S10 pickups, but I wanted something faster, something sportier, something I could feel every bend and corner in. Importantly, something that would whoop the tail end of my friend's Audi s4. After some thought about the rivalry, I figured I'd do it with M Power. I found an E36 BMW M3 in Techno Violet for sale on the outskirts of NYC. Low mileage with some major service recently done. It was advertised for 9000, or best offer. It was for sale for months, so I went down with my friend and his S4 to check it out. It needed some minor repairs not mentioned...Read More

As someone that keeps track of BMW parts sales to notice trends amp; all Euro brands for that matter, one trend became obvious pretty quickly. BMW cooling system partshave always been huge movers. This is mostly due to both the design and materials used, especially in parts for BMW E36's and E46's, but we have a solution. We've come up with a BMW E46 cooling system kit that replaces the brittle and failure prone components with uprated aluminum parts to ensure you'll never have to replace them again. Mishimoto has been in the business of making high-quality all-aluminum cooling system parts and we've assembled them into an easy to install kit that will keep your BMW reliable, even under severe abuse. The kit itself is compatible with both Automatic and Manual transmissions, as it does not include the radiator part. We have both radiators ready to go on the site...Read More
