Subject: I'm starting my 328ti project
The project will finally begin next week. I have took delivery of my 2.8
liter 6 cylinder engine and transmission today. If you guys are interested I
will keep you up to date with postings to the digest. I can't wait for
this car to be done.
When everything is completed, I will have a complete M44 drivetrain, except
for a short block that needs a bit of rebuilding. I'd be willing to sell
everything for a reasonable price. I will also have a set of 16" round spoke
wheels and tires (I'm putting on M3 wheels) I want to sell too.
Let me know.

I'm looking into a number of salvage yards that specialize in other peoples
BMW misfortunes. The battery will definately be relocated, nothing else has
been considered yet. My biggest concern is getting the motor and installing.
Any enhancements for weight distribution can be handled after that.

Very funny :)
This is a COMPACT list. :)
