    So after 3 years of bullshit, broken oilpumps and running out of budget multiple times, this time it's time to do it properly.

    Small recap of 2017:

    Some cosmetic work:

    Horrible graphics:

    And engine work:

    Resulted in:



    Was running a bit too rich below 4000rpm here, and noticed he coilovers are shit:



    So after one short round at Nurburgring Drift Cup 1 in April, a kinda succesfull round 3 of Nurburgring Drift Cup in July, I had a testday at Emmen in September, where after 30 minutes my oilpump went bust for the 3rd time in 3 years.

    37061619495_7dff673a3b_c.

    Now I was done with it and haven't seen the car since September 3rd. Now it's time to get things done properly, and rebuilt the whole car. Cage is gotta go and car is gonna get a new cage, bullitproof oilpump, new suspension (probably BC Racing), revise some minor things, get some weight off, get the cosmetics done again, and so on..

    I'll go and put some updates and vlogs on here early January, and tips are always welcome offcourse!

    Original 330i gearbox and a differential from a 330i automatic (1.8 is a smallcase diff so that won't fit.)

    So, it's time.

    finally got the keys to our new shed, so got the 46 in here and couldn't wait starting on it.

    After 3 months of not doing anything on this car, I couldn't wait.

    I'm glad I glasscoated the car last year, so easy to get clean again.

    Clean canvas, still amazed by how the (all original) paint on this car looks.

    After a lot of bullshit in the last 4 years, time to do it right.

    Received my Parkin Racing Developments M52/M54 oilpump, with a sidenote that I should do my best breaking this one :)

    Also prepped the chassis to cut the cage, and testfitted a 'fresh' rearbumper.

    Car ready to go to the cagebuilder

    Opened up the engine too, conrod bearings are gone (after 2 years and 2000km), piston rings are worn too, as I could see there has been some blow-by.

    Ready for transportation:

    And off to the cagebuilder:
