    Since I still haven't posted it, this has been my ride for the last few months. It's my brother's car but since he's in the UK studying I've been driving it.
    It's a '97 525tds. So basically, an E39 with an oil fryer as an engine. The old ass M51 turdobiesel anchor, 2.5L I6, no power, a bit of torque, enough to get me around at least.
    Oxford green on some style 122s from an E60, came with the car when he bought it. Possibly the most basic ass spec you can get in an E39 (if you disregard the 525td, no s, no intercooler, less power, I don't even want to know just how bad that one is) BUT with a sunroof, no other extras lmao. Cloth interior is also a big plus, even tho it's poverty spec, I MUCH prefer it.
     

    (vertical shot because I'm a retard and don't have much else currently)
     
    Honestly, I don't think I'll do much to this car, as it isn't even mine and I'd rather save up and buy an E34 (there's one lurking in the garage where I currently live, 520i Touring, and I'm dying to buy it of whoever's having it sit gathering dust) than modify this thing which will eventually be handed down to my parents or be sold even.
    I've thought about blacking out the chrome with something (as long as it isn't gloss, fucking disgusting) and maybe try to get the wheels to be more gunmetal instead of just silver. A set of lowering springs would probably be sweet, but we'll see. More recently, I've came across Alpina E39s and well, I looked for Alpina replica wheels, not much luck there, when it comes to this chassis at least. Replica Alpina boot spoilers are also pretty much non existent, so Idk. (replicas because ya boi's broke af)
    Polisher is in the to buy list tho.
     
    Also, this car has pretty much the same powertrain and the exact same color as the first car I ever drove, an E34 Touring 525tds, my dad's, if anyone remembers how that story went (long story short, stolen, powertrain yanked off, thrown into the woods). So there's some sentimental value to this one.

    Ah good ol' PRV. (Peugeot, Renault, Volvo) What could possibly go wrong when the french get involved./s
    The delorean was only 2700lbs or 1200kg. That's not much heavier than a civic.

    Finally found some louvers for my 900i
    Someone had painted them white so I painted them black again and I'm very happy with the results. 


     
    Car is dirty but the weather is so bad right now if I wash it will look the same tomorrow.

    RevoltTrain reacted to VeroVex in should i upgrade to an older gen?   
    currently, i have a ryzen 3 3200g with 16gb (ddr4) of ram and an rx580 8gb. i found a kijiji ad for a prebuilt with an fx 8120 , 550ti, and 8gb (ddr3). should i use the cpu and mobo in my system, and buy more ram? would it make a difference?

    More related to my R33 recently. 
     
    Drained out the coolant and filled with coolant flush & demineralized water to flush the system in intacipation of fitting the new alloy radiator. 
     
    Replaced the manual shifter surround with a brand new (old stock) one
     

     
    Pulled out the old washer bottle and replaced with a washer bottle + oil catch combo. Fitted with new OEM washer pumps, and used a GT-R mounting bracket slightly customised to mount it into the GTS-T. When I get to doing the engine covers im going to fit AN fittings, and will run some black braided tubes instead
     

     
    Next though is to remove the brake calipers and pull them apart to send them off for media blasting & powder coating. 
    I have a full rebuild kit, new brake rotors, performance pads and braided brake lines to go in once they come back.
