  • I love it just get rid of that color!


  • when’s the next HiLow series

  • How reliable is the "ebay motors" when it come to shipping to other continents??

  • It’s crazy! I Bought a 1998 automatic 328i 2 days before this video came out. excited for the rest of the series to come out.

  • "sierra rot red" Rot mean red in german

  • first step. Get a upgraded oil pump. nut rattles loose or axle snaps

  • I love donut but I'm pretty certain that they are coping chrisfix because he is doing a bmw e46 rn and he is doing the lemons race

    • Truck guys: look at what they need just to mimic a fraction of our power

  • Cool, but what about getting something FWD or AWD if it’s a rally build?

  • it’s the vanishing red e36

  • Rally Is my favorite, and so is whoever came up with this wonderful idea

  • Sheeeeeesh

  • Any tips for finding fun spots like this out in the desert?

  • Balls

  • i am a little mad because i have been looking for an e36 for a while and this isnt going to help the price

    • but excited for the content

  • Good luck man! :)

    • This is a late response as they already took the auto out, but with e36 autos if you're doing any kind of spirited driving always drop the shifter into 3 instead of drive that was

  • i have a 99 528i and have 2 questions- its missing a jackpad which i ordered but how can i safely jack the car in the meantime? the manual offers no other jackpoints :/ other question is how did you remove the oil filter? not sure what size socket id need for that

  • The third project car should be a civic

  • Truck guys: look at what they need just to mimic a fraction of our power

  • Vanossgaming bam

  • I don't even like beamers and I'd drive that one. Clean AF!

  • He is actually ridiculously smart

  • Donut + Project Car + BMW E36 = HAPPINESS 😍

  • I bought my e36 318ti for $300 like 4 years ago

  • "and they're very reliable...." sheesh okay

  • the hair is majestic

  • For reference when you are cinching” something up usually you are saying tight af not 20 newt meters

  • Loved the shots of the cameraman filming in the wheel chair ✨cinematography✨

  • This is a late response as they already took the auto out, but with e36 autos if you're doing any kind of spirited driving always drop the shifter into 3 instead of drive that was bmws kind of "sport mode" setting which only uses 1 thru 3 instead of all 4 and increases throttle response and will hold rpm when you let off much better, but never touch that A/M switch next to the shifter it just ruins how the car shifts as zack said it wouldnt respond much

  • Aaaaaaaaaaand I am done watching you build a nonsense rally build. B14 Rally build much better lol.

  • 5:20 I see what you did there 😆😏

  • When I saw that car I said anything over 2500 and they paid too much.... they clearly were not shrewd negotiators. 😉

  • Anyone else think this was a Cadillac CTS-V before the reveal?

  • I feel like max is influencing yall off my Instagram lol its not true but I feel like that

  • No, Grind Hard Plumbing did this anyways, how about an awd car at least geeeeez

  • love the new project, but isn't a lifted miata like perfect for a rally build?

  • where is new video?

  • I love how he mentions Ohio and not visiting family. I swear everyone at one point lived in Ohio or has family here 😂.

  • this is gonna be a great series love e36 and e46 chassis, though i was hoping you might go back to your roots and work on a gti or a3.

  • Learn from my mistakes don’t get a getrag and break it because parts do not exist

  • carolina squatted s13😂🤣

  • i wonder if jobes ever done an impossible

  • Hi! Interesting to see an E36 build in USA. Here in Latvia and Eastern Europe they by far are the most popular cars that are being built for racing. All you need to get it to become competitive are some shocks, some body strengthening parts (they tend to crack rear subframe, rear shock towers and front shock towers), LSD (large housing) and poli bushing kit and you are set. I would like to see you build a bored out M50 engine block with 2.8 internals and oversize pistons for maximum coolness

  • Can’t wait to see a manual put in this thing. Probably put resale value up aswell

  • When he pulled the cover I was like “I KNEW IT!!!!!!”

  • Zach out there looking like the stig

  • There going to be so much now

  • real wheel drive AND automatic sounds like a great rally car, should've done an Impreza :(


  • My god...that's glorious...


  • Sequential transmission????

  • Can't wait for new episode, love it.

  • So convert to no AC… 1 : 29second lap time

  • When you wear green while shooting with a green screen so it looks like you have a hole in heart

  • Please don’t remove the interior, you could male this such a good car but there are some things that should be left stock. Offroad ability yet a comfortable interior (at the expense of extra weight) is kind of the ethos of a SUV, but of course it’s a sedan! It could be like ‘the excellent’ they made on the grand tour! Honestly you should just manual swap it, upgrade the cooling, suspension, and tires, and maybe turbo it, there is no meed to change the looks or interior!

  • I love money pit for its content but absolutely cant stand the host. I forget his name, but he just always comes off as a complete jerk to me. Dont get those vibes from nolan, james and definitely not my favorite jeremiah. Anyone else agree?

  • Shoulda grabbed an Audi

  • Lemme cop those seats, just bought one same year n all but guy was a crackhead and nastied the seats so bad.


  • I really really really hope you do a RWD to 4WD conversion. Pretty please

  • Can we just take a moment to appreciate the magnificence that is Zachs ever growing flow??!!

  • Be careful man, i rolled my e36 on the track today

  • Hey guys! I am excited to see you building an E36 as a rally car. I have been successfully doing hillclimb and rally events in Europe with an E36 coupe for 5 years and then switched to a E36 sedan project. I have moved to LA area 2 years ago and would love to help you in any way with the project. Here is some of my E36 action:


  • trans swap best decision

  • Ebay really found the best used e36 they could find on ebay... they must have touched it before giving it to them

  • Is the transmission the same garbage GM 4L30e that Isuzu used in its US vehicles? Total garbage, get rid of it.

  • F for this nice e36

  • Why did the desert part give so much Top Gear vibes?

  • I am at 1:27 and can already tell it’s a bmw

  • Since this is going to be a rally car....can donut media possibly do a recreation of the "Samir Youre Breaking The Car" video?

  • From the thumbnail and later hearing him say rally build i was really hoping for a Ford Sierra RS.

  • a 90s bmw without an oil leak? impossible

  • Came to the comments section to see if high Boi is here

  • Damn ig a c6 would have been white noise

  • Not another f*ckn BMW, im out.

  • I knew it, but a rally build? Siiiiiiiic

  • wow a bmw build. i wont be watching this one.

  • Glad our crew already have 2! e36 to the moon!

  • I knew it was going to be a BMW form the taillight and because it is the best candidate for a rally car.

  • without seeing the car I bet it's imprezza

    • ah shit, some lemon...

  • I’m going to be so invested in this

  • Favorite BMV ever ❤️

  • Come to Florida. E36 and e46 go for dirt cheap in manual. They’re all below 2.5k.

  • Revels a 180sx

  • Yes this is the best chassis!

  • Manual, suspension, tyres and maybe if he wants to covert it to 4x4 drive and defiantly pull out the other seats.

  • Sheeesh

  • The section is about money pit cars, so bought the king of money pits

  • Can you do mods on the 3rd gen 4Runner you had in the background of your video at your house

  • Not a fan of Donuts choice of new money pit vehicle but you have nailed the 'Money Pit" moniker and you guys found a super clean example but these were well known for being expensive to maintain. Tough chassis but about as reliable as '80s British electronics. Might be an interesting build though.

  • Man when he said stock 90s sedan and rally, I was hoping it would be a first gen Legacy SS

  • Zach is easily the best part of donut. Money pit is always fun to watch. Love me some Hi/Lo too though

  • "Oil changed! Head Bonked! Alright it's ready to rip!"

  • Maan was hoping for something with 8 cylinders. Oh well maybe next time

  • Man...they aint nevah taking gas cars fran i.
