Stolen?

Have you tried with the police? It may be a futile effort but just in case,...,

It is very very unpleasant to even think about such a project stalling!

Did everything just went missing overnight ?

Not to be humble or anything but your project reflected true BMW enthusiasm.

Keep it going. You never know what future holds and what you might bump into.

Anyways, such a long time--cheers for your efforts !

That is very sad to hear stroke. After all the efforts you put into the restoration. If i was in your place i would not give up hope but try finding the parts in a chor bazaar kind of place as the stuff would have ended up there and then would be sold further to collectors and others requireing parts for their cars. The other option would be to find a modern engine and make it into a street rod. A friend of mine is doing something similar for his 316i and its a 95 model.

I am very eager to see your 325i. Me and a friend did a registry in E30 BMWs a few years ago as we were on the lookout for a good 325i. There is a very well known E30 325i in bombay with some glorious history too, but that will never be sold.

Are those two bolts on the chassis in the last picture the engine mounts? just two? are there more mounts?


Great work man, I would love to disassemble and assemble an engine again after seeing the "Ferrari factory" video.

Ya those 2 holes are for engine mounting.
There are total 4 Mountings, 2 at front portion and 2 at rear at gearbox end.
So the total weight is on 4 mountings.
