1992 BMW AC Schnitzer


This BMW project was acquired in Winter of 2008. I had been bugging a friend of mine for this car for 4 years. I had always wanted an E36 BMW since I had seen this one. Over the past years I have owned and built several, however in late 2008 an issue with an un-repaired fuel leak and remote start resulted in this car bursting into a ball of flames. With lack of fire coverage I finally got this gem!

With some hard work over about a months time working here and there, after work and on weekends, I managed to get the car converted to 5 speed and back up and running again. The car currently features the following modifications, some came with the car and some were added during my restoration process.


  • 2.5L I6 DOHC
  • TMS Light weight Flywheel
  • SACH Racing Clutch
  • UUC Underdrive pulleys
  • Clutch Fan Delete
  • AC Delete
  • UUC Short Shifter
  • 3:91 LSD
  • TMS Jim Conforti Racing Chip
  • AC Schnitzer Exhaust
  • TMS Cold Air Intake


  • Billstein PSS9 Coil Overs
  • Durlin Carbon Fiber Offset Control Arm bushings
  • Brembo Cross Drilled Rotors
  • UUC Braided Steel Brake Lines
  • Bendix Ceramic Pads
  • AC Schnitzer Type III wheels 18″


  • Alpine White/Primer

My Ex-Wife and I were leaving for Australia for 10 months so I did not have time to complete the car, however it has now left a great opportunity for all of you to see this car come to life!
