Random Snap>>e36 Sedan @ All Star Bash

While BMW's are the drift car of choice in Europe, they aren't seen to often here in the United States. This Washington-based E36 sedan from Team Instant Party was spotted at All Star Bash back in July. The car was nearly factory-spec except for the obvious suspension and wheel upgrades, but was still sliding nicely on the track and looked great while doing it.

Maybe I'm just a sucker for nice-looking four doors being hammered on the track – whether they are from Japan, Europe, or anywhere else.

I see japanese plates lol


While walking back from my last class, I was thinking about this very car! I had the same one back when I was 16 and loved it to death. There's a set of M3 Contour IIs with Pzeros on em, sitting in my garage right now. Time to hit up Craigslist.


Yeah, wassup with the "nihongo" plates? Didn't u say it was a Washington-based car?


He probably has a fake Japanese plate just in the front. I don't know if it has taken off anywhere else yet but here in Cali a lot of people like to stick fake JDM or Euro plates on their rides. The funny part is that if it is fake, why did he put a JDM plate on there instead of a Euro considering his car?


Maybe cause in his mind he's livin' the drift-life jap-style, but in a euro car:)). Not that there's anything wrong with that. Anyway cool car and cool shot. VIVA LA DRIFT!



I'm beginning to have a love/hate relationship with this BMW month. On one hand, I've always loved BMWs and this is only making me closer to my own E36 328i which will soon a new set of bushings, tires, and a new clutch. On the other hand, damn you BMW for draining what little money my broke college-student ass has left. BMW: it's like my dominatrix mistress.


mark if you see this... buy my forgelines!!!!


What engine is it running?


Its a real JDM plate that i gave him cuz its way sicky on a euro car!
