    Default BMW E36 328i Touring



    Hi guys.


    Here is my new restoration project. I was looking for a car for this winter.

    So it's a BMW E36 Touring with a 2.8L

    She is really in very bad shape, she has been in a forest for 4 years. There were mice inside...

    My first goal is to run the engine, the next step will be to fix it all and pass the Swiss expertise

    Fantastic to see another Touring get the level of restoration it deserves!

    You're doing some great work, the Style 32's will look brilliant.

    Thank you Scott. It's nice to receive a comment from you because your touring is beautiful.

    I wonder if the style 32 in 18 '' are not too big for an E36?

    I personally think 18's are too big. 17's I feel fit perfectly on an E36, but it all depends on how you want it to sit in the end.

    I completely agree with Scott on this one.

    I agree with you but currently I do not have 17 '' wheels to ride.

    I will decide the final style of the car later.

    I decide to change all the fabrics.








    Parts recovered in the 320






    And now the front
