1993 325i E36 BMW, 147xxx miles, needs fog lights, body work in back, tires (today or tomorrow), gas cap door and wiper arm on order, minor trim pieces in interior, dash and gauge lights, tune up, some lovin'... Has nice clean interior. According to the owner's manual, it weighs in at 3020 lbs.
Before and after (full suspension, dampers, springs, LCAs, tie rods, wheels, tires et cetera).
The motor is an M50TU/B25, 2494 cc, 10.5:1 CR, 84x75 bore/stroke, Motronic 3.3.1, 1993 is the first year VANOS variable cam timing was used, implementing a hydro-mechanical system to vary the intake cam timing.
The cam is driven with a chain, not a belt, as you can see in the photo to the right. The large sprocket is driven by a short chain from the exhaust cam. The helical splined gear slides in and out of the sprocket, thus changing the intake cam timing (which is driven directly from the inside splines of the moving hub). The exhaust cam has its sprocket mounted directly to the camshaft, so that its timing does not vary with respect to the crankshaft. (On the "double VANOS" engines in later M3s, both the intake and exhaust are driven through similar mechanisms, independent of one another; this is pictured in the illustration below.)
