BMW Forums Online: the Master List

There are hundreds of online car forums, specifically in BMW Forums, so we wanted to compile and share a list of all BMW forums we could find online.

Online car forums are an amazing resource for car enthusiasts  There are forums for pretty much every make and model of car. From tech information on engines, wheels, tires, interiors and electronics, to social events, car shows and motor sports events, these online communities are one of the best places to go to connect with fellow enthusiasts.

E30 M3 Conversion from S14 to S52 6-Cylinder

Sunday, May 18th, 2008

An interesting performance and power modification one can make to an E30 M3 is to replace the original 16 valve 4-cylinder S14 motor with the S50 or and S52 24 valve 6-cylinder motor found in newer model M3’s. Here is an example of this motor installed.

Some tips are that you’ll need to switch oil pans, transmission and some drive train features will need upgrading.  As well, an upgrade to the steering on the car can be conducted.  A lot of parts from the Z3 are interchangeable for this.

Following is a brief video of the M Power motor, and some still pictures of this E30.
