If you are local you have probably already heard or seen this car doing its thing. Everything about this car has been done by yours truly and it would be an understatement to say that its, It is my pride and joy. I will admit that it hasn’t all be a fairy tale … there were many low points in the project where I was very close to hanging the towel and walking away.
I purchased the car in 2015 completely stock with 27k miles. It all completely stock- 6 Speed Manual in Montego Blue/Black interior, I had to have it! --- I didn’t think twice about selling my former FBO 335i Auto. I rushed to sell my Auto 335i at a very low price and cashed out my “dream N54”.
Shortly: 2-3 weeks into ownership the car was FBO with a JB4 Back End flash and a TBI fuel injection kit. All maintenance items were address early and the car was amazing/consistent: the car was running great as it should and then misery struct! I woke up one morning to warm up my car, and the car was GONE! After a few minutes of confusion and asking myself where I left the car - I finally realized… The vehicle had been stolen from my driveway.
2- months later the vehicle was found – no wheels – interior stripped-engine components ripped off- wire harnesses snipped. A Total loss per insurance. Any Regular person would have walked away from the vehicle – but I couldn’t. Against all logic and common sense, I decided I wasn’t going to let go and purchased what was left of the vehicle from the insurance.
And so TRY#2 began.
I got the car running rather easily but was quickly hit with a plague of issues one after the other – blown turbos- bad fuel pumps- misfires- low compression – I could not catch a breath. Wife was telling me it was time to let it go and again… against all logic – I held on.
Summer of 2016 was when the car Finally started to play nice and its been the most amazing and most faithful N54 ever. It’s consistency in the last few years has been amazing and If I had to make the choice again I would choose to hold on to it again.
