    Corey's Electric Red 325iT. The Antiproject wagon.

    Just because the wife said no more working on cars that's not my race car. More details when I get to a PC. Here's a teaser.

    Dead due to damaged valve. We will save her soul for future use, but the body will go to car heaven...or another owner...who may or may not turn her into a race car...

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    This is my 2003 325iT auto, JapanRot over tan (ewww, but whatever). My first tan interior car, hopefully it'll grow on me.

    If you are new to my story, I will give a short background. I purchased a 2003 BMW 330i ZHP in 2016 (2015?), that was potentially the worst possible example ever. Long story short I replaced all the things, installed headers, bent exhaust valves because the camshaft screws were loose, most likely by someone before me. I pulled all the ZHP specific parts and scrapped the chassis.

    Now I'm here, an even better E46 owner than before. So good, that I bought another one to prove it to myself . I went on a mission to find a Touring. It didn't necessarily have to be Rot, but it had to have a short owner history and a decent list of a maintenance. I posted on the the local FB Bimmer group about wanting to buy a Touring, and I saw this one. The seller was asking a bit more than what I budgeted for, but I scraped up some coins and made it happen. I'm still feeling the effects of it, but it's worth it.

    This particular car has 216k miles on the clock. The previous owner was an enthusiast for the most part and the owner(s) before that were a woman that used it for taking her children back and forward to school, and someone else before that. I'm the 4th owner (need to fact check that one). Surprisingly, all of the previous owners knew each other somehow, so it's been "in the family" if you will.

    As you can see, it's been well taken care of with just a few rock chips here and there on the paint. There are a few minor cosmetic corrections to be made. The 19s rub a lot. I'll need to roll the fenders a bit. I'm not a big fan of large wheels, but they look good on the wagon.

    Future plans...none because it's not a project. So I'll have to dispose of these left over ZHP parts some kind of way...

    Check engine light came on today. Previous owner said it may be the MAF. I'll have to scan the codes when I get home. Unfortunately, my old ZHP MAF doesn't just bolt up. But I can exchange it with FCPEUROs LRG.

    *P0171 and P0174. LTFT are maxed out.

    The mileage has be horrific. I averaged around 20 mpg last tank...and that was driving like a grandma. So whatever this light is, I hope it points me in the right direction.

    The Touring is way louder on road noise than the sedan. I'm suspecting it's due to the open cabin ,or the tires, but the rear of the car was effectively isolated from the front on my old sedan. I'll do a full sound deadening treatment on it, since I don't have to worry about adding a few pounds here and there on this beast.

    Replaced MAF, fuel trims are normal again.

    Now I'm 99% sure I need to attack the FCABs, and if I do that then I may as well swap my whole ZHP front suspension on...well that escalated quickly

    Hmmmmm.... haven't updated this in a while.

    E-fan conversion done. Also swapped over the ZHP shroud which has a little wider opening than the stock 325i shroud. I need to get some ZHP brackets so my bumper fits better too.

    Swapped over the ZHP front suspension parts. The touring is now 1/4 ZHP. Time for an alignment.
