# Zero : I was thinking RB personally but 4AGE are easier to find than RB's
Yes, but RB builds are getting boring and most of us want to see something different.

Something different is better

Added 47 minutes later:

So i managed to find a VQ35DE and i swapped it in last night - I also found some small twin turbos and fitted em to some turbo manifolds and the engine and turbos and stuff cost about V$1800. It does need some more mangling to have a better fit but still.

!!!UPDATE!!!
My new car is a 1990 BMW 320i E30 and is a special BMW grey (dont know exact color) and has a BMW S42 swapped in and is said to be making upwards of 280 to 300 bhp (dont know as of yet), its RWD and loves to kick rear end out. Interior is like new and has BMW sport seats. Exterior has BMW BBS RS wheels in grey.
Whole car is M-TECH and features a BMW M-Tech Steering Wheel and also has M-Tech Rear Lip. Car has an OBC which is rare and works perfectly. Fuel consumption is not bad at all and doesnt burn oil luckily.

Only problem with that e30 mod is that the actual bbs wheels for a proper e30 are 15'' but in game they have to be about 18'' to look proper stanced if you know what i mean

The one im using is the newest one by some kreizell or something, pretty recent but all others are pretty low quality so i didnt bother

Added 14 minutes later:

So i never showed you guys the engine but its clean and i also found out after looking at the spec list that is has coilovers which are AP branded so i put them to the lowest setting and its sitting on the arches pretty much and it does have camber adjustment also so i did that and then machined some spacers for that ultimate poke.

I woudlnt know the price, im sure you could find a wreck with an engine for cheap and the torque would probably twist the driveshaft but im sure the e60 one would fit up with modification.

Still M5 V10's are never cheap, V10 would proubly not fit, you need new suspension proubly to handle correctly, with wheels and tyres and brakes and your chassis needs to be strengthened everywhere, engine and IF LUCKY itll pass regulations and all that could cost 25k! And all your sanity and months of time.

it can be misread

Added 33 minutes later:

So i found an all black leather interior for the E30 and its in perfect condition nearly enough and i also forgot to put the prices for everything i bought in the last update so.

Funds - V$4250 - V$300 For lip and rack
4250 - 300 = 3950
V$3950 - V$600 For interior
3950 - 600 = 3350
Total amount left = V$3350

It really is comfy and it did take some time but looks so much better than the other one. (The leather is weird from a distance, even if its close like that, have to go really close to see texture properly)

Added 1 hour 13 minutes later:

Ive been looking at some E46 engines and i found one for 1950 and its only done 95k on the engine which is great!. It has a M3 CSL Intake System and all conversion mounts for an E30 so im gonna hit the guy up and buy it and try having it in by tomorrow and then sell the S42 for about 1800 as it is a good engine.

Added 56 minutes later:

Funds:
3350 - 1950 = 1400
1400 + 1800 = 3200

Also reminds me, a friend of me has been storing my golf away while i get on my feet in japan and hes been asking me, no more like badgering me if i will sell it him and after a while i just gave up with the golf and now ive said yea take it, youve got keys just send me the cash which i was wanting 7000 because it had a twin turbo c20xe motor, corrado dash and so forth so he sent me 7000 over and now its gone, so i have cash for my other cars which i am looking for a daily as well. Ive seen a Toyota Corolla DX - 1995 and its pretty clean and has a 4A-FE engine which is reliable so im gonna ask the guy if he will take 400 for it since its only a corolla

Before i got my 318i, i wanted a e36 m3 and now i wanna get one if the Silvia gets sold. But you got a E30 so im not completly missing the 3 series feeling, seeing you work on it and stuff makes me want a 3 series more and less. Might just get one of my dream cars though, a 1990's 300ZX Twin Turbo and i would probably use it as a track day car. what do you think, Zero?
