#1: Joined the westside Circle Jerk M family (build updates) Author: MennyFresh, Posted: Thu Jan 23, 2014 12:55 am ---- As seeing as most of the guys a hang out with on the Westside seem to all have either an m3 or a car with an M motor (ex: nick with lsb M3, Amr with S50e30, e46 M3, and unicorn. My cousin junior with also an e46 M3) well I decided to get my own as well.
After a few weeks of looking in and out of state, I finally found this in cali.
1995 Daytona Violet 5 speed e36 M3 coupe with dove interior
mileage is a lil steep, but s50 feels strong.
Has some decent stuff on it:
bbs ch reps
clear tails and corners
steel braided brake lines
and cold air intake
This is how it sits currently, more pics to come
Joining the family.
Car runs great, I absolutely love it. needs little things here and there but solid car throughout. Will post more pics as soon as I get better shots.

Daytona is legit Menny. It was fun to bring back. Welcome to our pretentious club!

#8: Re: Joined the westside Circle Jerk M family Author: MennyFresh, Posted: Mon Dec 29, 2014 1:31 pm ---- Hey guys, little update on my car. Haven't posted anything since purchase, but I had done quite a bit to it since acquiring it with not much time wasted.
Mods added in the last couple months:
k sport coilovers (cheap, I know, but it's just a daily)
FX racing stage 2 clutch with chromonoly flywheel
akg 90a (?) Motor mounts and UUC tranny mounts
power flex purple fcabs
power flex rtabs
akg 90a diff mounts with bimmerworld upgraded bolt (I snapped my oem one)
dj auto glass ellipsoid headlights
zhp shift knob
full catless exhaust
Billy boat exhaust
24lbs Ford injectors
sparco strut bar
And I also had to replace the cracked head that came with the car (WOOHOO!)
and also mishimoto radiator
And I just installed hard motorsport fender flares (which were a bitch to install)
on top of that I also did hardware motorsport stud kit with shadow chrome extended nuts
also in that area I purchased ACS type 2 monoblock wheels from OMarji. Plasti dipped white for now till I figure out what ima do.
It's come a long way this past year and I couldn't have done it without the help of my buddies Amr and Daniel (he's new has a turbo m52 TI)
and also my cousins Jr. And Roy
pics to follow

Oh, in for pics!
#12: Re: Joined the westside Circle Jerk M family (build updates) Author: bmw325i, Posted: Mon Dec 29, 2014 11:57 pm ---- too many words, but a picture/s says a lot!!!!
#13: Re: Joined the westside Circle Jerk M family (build updates) Author: xAZxE30x, Posted: Tue Dec 30, 2014 1:47 am ---- Pics!!
#14: Re: Joined the westside Circle Jerk M family (build updates) Author: MennyFresh, Posted: Sun Jun 07, 2015 8:52 am ---- I have pics of the car now. Sorry for delay.
Took her out to south mountain today.
just bought a set of sparco seats (used but I daily the car and would hate to ruin brand new seats after work.
and sparco brackets
I also purchased a rep LTW wing with carbon fiber risers. I love it, made the car look appropriate with the flares.
I also did the JTD aluminum underpanel
And also a pricey honeycomb grill made for e36's looks badass, except my bumper is ripped right now so when I get that fixed I'll post up a pic.
Hope you guys enjoy the pics!
I also painted a Patrick to one of my wheels, I was gonna do all of them but the one took forever. It's paint on pink plastidip so it'll come off.
I also took a drive out to tortilla flats with my cousin Jr. And buddy Julian, Julian drifts the white e36.
#15: Re: Joined the westside Circle Jerk M family (build updates) Author: MennyFresh, Posted: Tue Jan 05, 2016 3:20 am ---- Little update
I decided to go force induction. I went with a vortech v3 blower, fmic, rms hardware and jordan rk tunes for software. It's still in process of tuning. I did dyno it, at about six pounds it was and with horrible afr's I made 278whp. Jordan says there is much power left to make. Im aiming for 350+whp. But new funds for car have just become available and might be going turbo route instead for more torque and 450+whp. Also with plans of e85 in the future.
I will post pics up soon.
The intercooler is an active autowerk fmic (frankenstien build?)
I did glowshift gauges
Innovate lm2 data logger
Active diff bracket
I also got my mishimoto coolant reservoir
Mishimoto radiator hoses
Trm catch can
