  • That coffee tables a lovely 90s piece. Had many a lass bent over mine back in the day.

  • Ethans sounds like he doesn’t have a fudging clue about what he’s doing 😂😂😂

  • Remap it with a good exhaust set up

  • Tune it up to700 hp

  • Please, do not do _anything_ to the paint! Maybe find some alloys, maybe widen it with plastic or whatever Make it clean looking ;)

  • It's not much of a project car when the paintwork is good and everything works. This is just an old car 😅

  • Fit a massive spoiler on it like a complete moron, because he is now a BMW owner.

  • Looks like something big is coming! Great job Ethan!

    • I'm gonna have to stop watching this series here. Stock is best with such a beautiful car. I'm worried if I continue it'll be like somebody LS-swapping a perfectly fine RX-7.

  • Clutch. Couple of oil changes then supercharge the grandma out of it. Cheapo coilovers.

  • do we have any updates on the Z3??

  • 10:28 Dog Enters!

  • When is episode...2?

  • For 1 k in my country u can get a 2004 sirion. Or a 15 the old Hyundai or some sht... Jesus my country just sucks.

  • it is funny to think about that they are making it and the ou

  • Bmws always rust. I can confirm that. They are unrelaible pile off crap they are.

    • Alex: “this is Google you put words of things you want to search”... in 2020 😂😂😂

  • Never thought I needed this video until now😂

    • find someone new to take that role...

  • Fix that rust before the car eats itself.

  • i love how alex gets mad at a hotwheels micra being a thing but spent £20000 on a mx5

    • It’s in amazing condition for its age!!.

  • looking fantastically stressed at 13:25 Ethan! bright red!

  • Project car? Hot Wheels contender? Make it a safari car. Small suspension lift by spacers, knobby offroad tires, and some big lights. Easy to do on a budget. It will look great, and it's all reversible later.

  • It's not much of a project car when the paintwork is good and everything works. This is just an old car 😅

  • Hastings boiii

  • "No miatas" *Buys bmw's version of a miata* I actually had one of these years ago. I put a lightweight flywheel, a cold air intake and some decent tires on it. It was a blast!

  • I'm gonna have to stop watching this series here. Stock is best with such a beautiful car. I'm worried if I continue it'll be like somebody LS-swapping a perfectly fine RX-7.

    • In a while you're going to need to find somebody else for the "non-car guy" videos :)

  • use the miata

  • the cheapest z3 where I live is 10k canadian so probably like 7 or 8 thousand euros lmaoo

  • its crazy how local these guys are to me

  • What a car! Loved these when I was a kid. Remember sitting in a yellow one at the motor show back when they did them at the NEC.

  • nolong.info/show/fLGDaG2roqhpfH0/video.html

  • I'm so glad you guys are doing this. I will definitely watch all the videos here. Great idea! But unfortunately after this is done Ethan won't be a beginner anymore and you'll have to find someone new to take that role...

  • Alex: “this is Google you put words of things you want to search”... in 2020 😂😂😂

  • I’ve watched you lot since 2016 and you haven’t ceased to entertain my feeble heart. Keep it up 👌👌👌

  • are we not talking about Alex not have an actual chair ?!?!!

  • It’s in amazing condition for its age!!.

  • Ethan is a fuckin' spanner, no capp

  • My stagea cost me a grand! Rb25det, auto sadly.

  • How the hell is that car listed for a grand? In America that would be listed for quite a bit more in that condition.

    • Jon L My bad but maybe there is more z3 in their country?

    • @Jesu J Gaming it's pounds, but yes, i understand. ieven so, the difference in price is still as I said, wayyyy more here in america. nobody is letting go of a z3 in that condition for even close to the USD equivalent of 1200 or so pounds.

    • Jon L Dollers Vs Euros

  • Biggest mistake owning a new skoda

  • In a while you're going to need to find somebody else for the "non-car guy" videos :)

  • “Oh Christ is that a tape deck”

    • @eioshen boboi he’s great, I love him (no homo)

    • I love Ethan. We have our new James May

  • Jajja

  • The cleanest "project car" I've ever seen

  • I feel like a proud parent, Watching Ethan get his first project car.

  • All of these in the US cost like 10k 😞

    • Well, i was always Team Alex, but after this i think i'm heading over to Team Ethan, sorry bro

  • I hope you guys get a TV show, top gear could really use you

  • Want to get a z3 and convert the coupe top onto it but only in my dreams

  • 18:26 the woman checking out the window 🤣🤣

  • titanium exhaust please

  • RHD Individual Throttle Bodies

  • Needs a fat wang

  • Go budget and cut the coils instead of buying coilovers to save money for other mods

  • Widebody, bosozoku exhaust or viper style side pipes, overly large duck bull spoiler and some lows, maybe a lip kit from another car retrofitted

  • I hope we get more episodes on this Z3 because this is gonna be a good series!

  • What about the mini cooper?

  • I love Ethan. We have our new James May

  • What site did Alex use to check the vehicles repair history? 11:42

  • Alex - “It’s plastic but since it’s a bmw, the plastic is probably also rusted” 😂😂😂

  • The fact me and ethan are at the same level gives me confidence in my future first project car, he has the advantage of having car throttle compared to me who has youtube and google behind him but we're basically even

  • Bag it

  • Well, i was always Team Alex, but after this i think i'm heading over to Team Ethan, sorry bro

    • As a z3 owner myself I'm super excited for this. Only bummer I see is that it's a 1.9 4cl the inline 6 are really where it's at but I imagine that budget played a factor in that decisi

  • Should be called Brian or beverly

  • B54 engine swap

  • Subtle improvements to keep her looking as near to stock as possible. Good luck Ethan!

  • Led tail lights 🙈as fast as u can , after full service and everything

  • As I own a z3 it's good to see them get some recognition-well deserved!

  • Ethansmale!

  • Making Ethan becoming the next drift king

  • I would live to see Ethan take his car to the track for a shakedown!

  • V8 swap! Wide body! Big Wang gang! Zoomies spitting fire drifting with the top down!

  • Liberty walk it. Wide arches, air ride.

  • Someone’s dad at my school has an M4 and they get dropped off in it every day 🥵🥵🥵

  • Can you make closed captions option (cc) available please?

    • I love how this channel has pivoted from random tier lists to teaching Ethan about working on and buying cars!

  • how to shoot your car go to your nearest redneck borrow a gun aim at the car and pull the trigger

  • Ethan will be a proper car guy in 6 months time

    • I love this new found confidence Ethan has had in the last videos. Congratulations on your new project car

  • He doesn’t have the time to fix it but he has the time to advertise it and buy a new one :/

  • As a z3 owner myself I'm super excited for this. Only bummer I see is that it's a 1.9 4cl the inline 6 are really where it's at but I imagine that budget played a factor in that decision.

  • That is crazy cheap for such a car. If it was in some countries in Asia, you'd be paying 9,000 Pounds or more.

  • Love this one, brilliant video. Ethan needs to take this to concourse condition :D

  • The world is ending lol Ethan got a car

  • Cobra body kit 😂😂

  • Don't turbocharge it. Go for a nice port and polish, oversized valves, nice headers and a nice map for the ECU. Also the body needs a touch...

  • You forgot 1 thing when buying this car... BMW's are endless MONEY PITS

  • Genuine laughs watching this video 😂

  • I lost my Z3 in June due to some idiot hitting me head on overtaking on a hill :( really miss the car had put a lot of work into it. Super easy little motors to work on and such a great car to learn about mechanics on! When I can I will be getting a 3L zeddy to replace mine but still miss mine as I had put so much blood, sweat and tears into it! Damn Z3 captures you. A really nice history behind them too and a bond car! They were delayed when originally making them as they built a new factory and trained all the locals to work there so they could employ all local people

  • im thinking fighter jet theme. wrap the car in the metalic look he wanted with some aircraft rivet details around the panels. get the car lowerd and every plane need a wing right? just an intresting idea

  • Had a z3 couple years ago Most unreliable car I've had lol

  • I love this new found confidence Ethan has had in the last videos. Congratulations on your new project car

  • I love how this channel has pivoted from random tier lists to teaching Ethan about working on and buying cars!

  • Looks good nick that

  • I own a Z3 2.8 "project car" for a few years. Best value car there is, really. It looks MILES better than an MX5, the straight six is a /fantastic/ engine that you don't have to 'turbo', and it's actually a pocker luxury car to boot. Electric roof, seats, leather everywhere, precious wood console, heated mirrors, ABS, traction control, limited diff and about 200bhp that sounds like *awesome* any day of the week. Been putting a great smile on my face for years.

  • I need a series of this injected straight into my veins

    • LS swap with a 671 blower sticking through the hood/bonnett

  • You're in a BMW you don't need to indicate...... ha ha . Isn't that Audi now?

  • The front ends of these UK cars look so roundish and childish

  • wide body it, maybe hood exit exhaust bamboo pipes? would be cool i think

  • Trailer bed Raptor coat it in a wild colour, will protect any rust and even stevie wonder could get an even finish and will only cost about £100

  • Track it!

  • me a 14 year old thinking wheather to buy tools or a project car for christmas ethan 20 years odd getting his first projects car

  • Coilovers Performance air filter Performance brakes Poly bushes Performance anti roll bar Semi slick tyres Body kit

  • I think they should of went with a MG ZR
