Description:
My BMW 320i during my first rally in that car.
Total RWD noob and first time with some proper suspension and performance brakes: that, plus it's a daily driver. Anyway, at this point this car is waaay faster than me.

I like the part at 0:44, where you kick the back end out just slightly.

#1, It's not on the vid, but the first time I did the 180 around the blue barrel the car got massively sideways on exit. I know it's always slippery there but holy shit.

During the event I lost one of the fog lamps*. I am unhappy to report that I cannot find a used one that would match the other: most are scratched, have dull glass or mirror or have a different connector. This leaves me either with BMW Originalteile ($$$) or Taiwanese Depo's: they're pretty good quality but, well... it won't feel right. Shit, have I turned into a Beemer snob already?

* On the vid there's a wide left corner with a lot of dirt on it. On the second run I decided to cut it (the finish line photo sensors were just behind it) and the car caught air. Unfortunately, I landed just short of the opposite side of the hole and hit the ground with the bottom of the bumper. No damage save from some scratches (all of the shrouds, covers and other plastic crap inside is deleted) but the fog light popped like a zit.

I think I shall make this 'the official Sexhelmut beemer thread', just like with the Frog. Please introduce yourself.
Hi, my name is BMW 320i, I left the assembly line on January 28th 1991 as an Alipinweiss/grey Italian market car. I lived in Italy until 2007 and saw very little use. Later I was bought by a Pole working in Germany, who mainly kept me parked but also did some stupid things to me like installing US spec gauge cluster. Then, in 2012 I was purchased by another Pole, a fat bespectacled guy with delusions of becoming a competition driver. From the factory I received electric sunroof, windows and mirrors, nice leather sports steering wheel, no air conditioning and open diff. From my current owner, a Bilstein B12 Sportline suspension package, Ferodo DS2500 brake pads and inner bumper cover/shroud delete. Because he is broke, he also had an LPG autogas sequential system installed with a 60l tank. So far I'm rather happy save for some minor problems.

The engine is a M50B20 DOHC 20v inline-6 which is basically a debored and destroked version of the 2.5l version that the US market is familiar with. It is rated at 150hp and because of lower displacement and lack of VANOS VVT has a rather peaky power delivery: it pulls best from 4000-4500rpm. Still, in daily driving there's no reason to rev it past 3000rpm, if you are economy minded or are cruising for drugs/hookers you can shift up at 2000rpm no problem. Very much like the Alfa V6s of old, it has a whole range of sounds it makes, from low burbling ('chuckling dinosaur' type sounds, as per Clarkson scale) to a rather aggressive howl above 5000rpm.
Anyway, some pics from last rally:

Also, this is a friendly reminder that my YT channel has some incar vids (of appaling quality, but still) and is being periodically updated with new ones:

Wonder how much that XKR will cost to fix. Guy was all the place.
That event looks like a lot of fun. I was imagining myself hooning my dad's pickup around that course until it got into the woods. Jeez. Seeing how the bigger cars struggled among the trees kind of killed the dream for me. :P

#11, Well, I guess it was nothing big but I could do without them. Squirming like a noob little bitch shit on a greased grill.

#12, The XKR was some POS, with trimless bumpers and shit paint. RHD import, very often stolen/junkyard/broken cars. We whopped its ass.
The 'woods' section is scary. It's always slippery with debris falling from the trees, even in high summer, other times of year it's pretty much always damp in places and covered with dust everywhere else. Things like reverse camber, deep holes on corner cuts and thick black mud just beyond the edge of tarmac don't help. Logic tells you to take it easy but usually there's a lot of people there so it's tempting to show off at least a little bit XD

#10, E36s seem to have the most entertaining fuck-ups. You have joined an elite club. :D

I also like how the FWD Hondas keep spinning completely out for no apparent reason.

#14, That's because E36 drivers are usualy the biggest idiots >_>
And, yeah, these kind of videos are usually 'fuck up compilations' but I have no idea how is it possible for an FWD car to spin out on corner EXIT. Actually, some of these fuck ups make me scratch my head: what the fuck? How did they do that?

According to my calculations, the Beemer does 27-25mpg combined mode, on autogas to boot. I guess the stories of huge fuel consumption of i6 BMWs come from a)people used to driving small 60mpg diesels, or b)people never dropping below 5000rpm. I can't blame b), though this thing just begs to be flogged.

It seems that while the Ferodo DS2500 brake pads and Ferodo Racing brake fuild hold up very well, the Brembo plain discs do not: the front set overheated and warped and I havent' even been to a single track day yet! Sure, each of the events I did so far had a couple of big braking zones (like 160kph to 40kph) and quite a few of, say, medium ones (100kph to 20-30kph) it does not come close to a race track. I got them turned/skimmed but now they will have even less thermal capacity and will most likely be scrap after one more rally sprint. No idea how to solve that problem save for upgrading to bigger brake set (M3?). All 6-cyl E36, even the 328i used tiny 286mm discs which apparently are simply shit.

#18, Aaaand after some reading it now seems that the vibration was caused by uneven brake pad material disposition on the disc. Happens if a) the pad overheats, b) the pad sticks to the hot disc when the car stops, or c) when the disc/pad were not properly bedded in and had no chance of mixing their material on atomic level. Well, time for a few (20? 30?) 60mph-20mph braking sessions tomorrow!

Finally replaced the missing fog light, learned that the muffler and diff are junk, so is the rear gearbox seal. Plus, just replacing the diff will cost as much as a used LSD, possibly more. Great.
