Alright guys, I’ll brief you about what’s going to happen. An hour from now I’ll be flying to Poland. To experience their local drift. From what I’ve heard we’ll be having an E46 with a Corvette motor. An LS3 swap. A few mods. And we’re having somewhere around 450HP. And 600NM. Also it has an individual racing parts steering angle kit installed. Hydraulic handbrake, short shifter. All the mandatory mods are already installed. It’s an interesting street car. I am preparing these handheld transceivers. They should be charged. Or not… They’re all dead. Alright, I’ll need to charge them then. This will be attached to a follow car. Preparations are going smoothly. And we’ll be leaving in a bit. We are expecting to have a good time. Some more about the aforementioned E46. From what I know the whole rear end with all the components have been replaced with parts from an E46 330d. The real differential ratio is 2.28 The ratio is pretty long. The top speed on the 5th gear is around 350Km/h. As I’ve already told you it’s a pretty decent street drift build. And on the subject of builds, everyone’s telling me to buy the 335i E90 from the US car auctions. Power is all there right off the bat, and there’s a lot of potential in modding the vehicle. So since we have couple of free minutes I’ll tell you all about how to buy yourself a vehicle from the US The first option is to go to the auction site, find yourself a suitable option and buy it from there. The positives of this approach are that you can see the status of the vehicle in pictures. In any case the pictures must be checked very carefully. Because the thing with some of the vehicles is that someone might’ve “fixed” the damage from the accident a bit. So that the vehicle wouldn’t look so bad and it would be easier to sell. So after you bring the vehicle back to Lithuania you might be pleasantly surprised. I have a few options here. For example this 135i The damage is minimal and the mileage isn’t that bad. Of course the airbags are shot. Which is quite an expensive thing to fix if you’re planning to keep the vehicle as a daily driver. Though for vehicle this old there might not be any problems in finding the airbags. The other options is this E90 335i. It has a TV, and it’s an automatic. Airbags seem to be intact. Motor seems to be the old N54. Though there might be a discussion about which motor is better, the N54 or the N55. But today we won’t be discussing that. We’ll be discussing the options to buy. We can check one of these vehicles. For example this 335i Since we have the VIN number. Let’s head to carvetical.lt Let’s paste the VIN number and see what happens. Recorded mileage is 105k miles. Same as in the auction. Let’s check the damage. There isn’t much information regarding the accident. There are no pictures. But we can see that the vehicle had an accident the same year as the auction listing. So we can deduce that the vehicle wasn’t in any other accident. So it’s not that bad of an option. As I’ve mentioned the first option is to buy the vehicle yourselves. And you’re probably paying the middleman for the purchase of the vehicle and the arrangements of the vehicle transportation to Lithuania Also for the customs and so on. And after the vehicle reaches your driveway you find some interesting surprises. The other option is to buy the vehicle that is already imported to Lithuania, but has not yet been repaired. There are a lot of listings regarding the second option. The positives are that you can check the vehicle in person and to check all the defects which are not present in the auction listing. You won’t be receiving any surprises as opposed to the US auction. But then again the questions is, why would anyone sell the good vehicle without first repairing it. If you buy the vehicle for a decent price. Where there’s not a lot of repairs required. You just fix the car and sell it for a better price. I have an option here on which we are not going to be focusing much. But I think there’s a lot of work to be done. To bring the vehicle back to it’s former glory. 335i coupe. Much of the parts are missing. But of course the positives are that I’ve mentioned. You get to see the actual status of the vehicle. And the other positive is that you don’t need to wait for the vehicle to get shipped. Of course the vehicle can get here in two weeks. But when you have the vehicle in Lithuania, you just go there and buy it. And the last option is to buy the vehicle that’s already been fixed. There are a lot of vehicles like that in Lithuania. I have a few of them right here. On some of the listings the VIN number can be found in the description. Sellers are not hiding it. And I have other two options where the VIN number is missing. I’ve contacted these sellers via SMS And only one sent me a positive reply. So let’s start from that. I have the VIN number right here. We have a 335i sedan. The listing doesn’t have a mention whether the vehicle was involved in the accident. But we’ll be able to find out real soon if the vehicle was damaged or not. Mileage was not recorded. Let’s check what the listing has to say about the mileage. Listing says that the mileage is around 170k kilometers. They might be telling the truth. And here we have some pictures from when the vehicle was still in the US. We have a front passenger side damage. Of course it’s not the worst that can happen to the car. Suspension seems to be damaged. As well as some parts of the chassis. Radiator might’ve been damaged also. Vehicle was probably unable to start. That’s why the mileage is not recorded. Instrument cluster is not lit. The damage doesn’t seem to be that bad. Though I have some questions about this part, door seems to be shut, but there’s a gap right there. But what’s important that you get to see how the vehicle looked like before it was fixed. So you’ll have a pretty good idea where to look when you decide to check out the vehicle in person. The other car that we’re going to check is 335i coupe. With an interesting spoiler. Poor picture quality. What kind of pictures are those. There isn’t much information that you can gather from the pictures. But we have a VIN number in the listing description. So we can head back to carvetical.lt to check the vehicles history. Because there isn’t much information in the listing itself. We have all the information. Mileage is around 113k miles And on the listing the mileage is not shown. And here are the pictures of an accident. Rear quarter panel seems to be damaged. With that in mind we’d need to check if the whole quarter panel was replaced. Or was it bent back and filled with body filler. These days it’s really hard to find a vehicle that was not involved in the accident and especially if the vehicle is old. Of course it’s easier in the US. But the price is the same as in the Europe. The other option is a vehicle that’s been flooded. But usually these kind of vehicles are just for parts. But there has been stories of flooded vehicles that start right up from the first crank. But it’s a 50/50 lottery. But the most important thing is to check everything thoroughly before you purchase the vehicle. And now let’s pack our things and head to Poland.
