mrfuzzyfelts BMW Compact Rally Car - mk2!

Postby mrfuzzyfelts » Sun Jan 06, 2013 11:20 am

After selling my last compact 5-6 years ago I have been playing on 2 wheels at motocross since... However I have always missed the BMW and wanted to return when I moved house and got a garage etc

After navigating at a stage rally on the 30th December at Pembrey I knew I had to get another car and had r bug big time!!!

Been hunting around for a real tidy base car this time and went to fetch it last night, after 400 miles drive and blow out on trailer so had to limo home with 3 wheels at 30 mph I finally have my new car home....

Now for the work to start and get it stripped etc :-D

Looks like you cant go wrong building one of these just now, everyone seems to be building them or wanting one!

I did originally consider the Compact as my base car but in the end I went for the 1 series since the compacts were starting to be a bit old. I would have saved over 200Kgs and £3500 on the base car purchase if I'd followed my 1st instincts! As it happens my 1 series is just as old as the last E46 Compact being a 54 reg!

Best of luck, you cant go wrong building this, I will be following your build with interest!

My plan was to slowly build the car over the year ready for next year....! Wasn't going to touch it for a few months...

But I can't help it!

Also managed to sort out a pile of parts;

Polycarbonate windows
Cage
Suspension
Sump guards
Etc
Etc

Looks like its going to be quicker than I thought!

Next up is the shitter job of getting the sound deadening off and getting rid of all brackets / holes inside...

Easiest way to remove the sound deadening crap???

But there was a 323ti ? which is a 2.5 , 15,000 made but not in UK so does this count?

OR

What if i log book it with 1.9 in there, then add the 2.8 (2.5 ;) ) later?

You should be o.k, your right in the fact that the 323ti was a 2.5 , msa were fully up to speed on this when I originally spoke to them about fitting the 3.0 m54. If you want it from " the horses mouth" there very helpful.

Spoke to bloke who will be log booking it, he said its fine...

As long as the car was fitted with a 2.5 anywhere in the world it counts!

So you could run up to 3.0 M3 under cat 1 log book....
