So, i bought a parts car last year, february, just for the hatch and door. After letting it sit for about a month, i decided to pull the parts i needed for my C57 and planned to junk the rest of the car. Upon further inspection, there was barely any rust, most things were still intact, sport model, and the list goes on why to keep it. So, finally, its time to take the 325ti off the road for the C57 conversion and bring this parts car out. Unfortunately, it had a blown M44 installed, busted window, and a lot of dislocated wiring and parts so i dismantled my original Moreagrun Metallic Active ti to piece meal it back together.
The front clip has been completely rewired with the front clip wiring from my old clubsport. The engine has also been transplanted from the clubsport, M42b18 with a 5speed and the OE 3.45 open. All the wiring for the fuel pump and the fuel pump itself were missing, so that was replaced and rewired in.
Days go by and i finally get it to a feasible "starting point" to do my conversion to the M42.
