NEWS BULLETIN: RED 1991 BMW M3 STOLEN FROM NW SIDE OF CHICAGO - Friday night, March 5th, 2011, from the 5100 block of North normandy Ave. - Please Help! - read more - view photos

My 1991 BMW M3 was stolen Friday night March 5, 2011, from the 5100 Block of North Normandy Ave, near Harlem and Foster on the far NW side of Chicago. I am the original owner and beyond upset about this. It was Brilliant Red with a Black Leather interior and 128K miles. Basically stock in appearance with the exception of cross-drilled rotors under the stock rims.

There can’t be many of these E30 M3s in the Chicagoland area and I would greatly appreciate it if anyone sees a new one in the area or if someone is parting one out, any suspicious parts for sale like S14 Engine parts etc., to please let me know. Even ideas as to where to look or post online would be greatly appreciated.

It is a rare limited production car that I have owned for over 20 years and I would really love to get it back.

The factory water manifold on most 24 valve, six cylinder vehicles is made of plastic. Unfortunately, plastic will not handle the heat or over-torquing of the mounting bolts. We have discovered that even the new plastic manifolds from BMW can be warped by as much as 1/16". Water leaks resulting from the failure of the original plastic component have claimed many engine failures. We have now reproduced this item in a more stable, low-pressure cast aluminum.

Featured Videos & Tech Tips

BMW M3, E46 Valve Adjustment Videos The M3 E46, MZ3, MZ4 with the S54 engines all use mechanical valve lifters. Mechanical lifter vehicles require periodical valve adjustments & they do have much higher R.P.M. capabilities. On a S54 engine it is important to maintain proper clearances, which is required to compensate for heat expansion.
