With an ever-growing number of enthusiasts each year in Indonesia, the event has kept growing as well, and also a goodness of changes has been made to accommodate the loads.

As the sun began on Saturday morning of April 25, many members were ready for the pre-meet up at Plaza Senayan Jakarta for joining a convoy to the venue at Flavor Bliss, Alam Sutera, the participants headed to grab some coffee and breakfast while several media took their appearance with. Winding weather and cool morning air made for an amazing drive after grouping in pre-meet session. Because it was a weekend, and Plaza Senayan shopping center as such no customers, there was always a time for doing a short photoshoot that we had done prior the convoy began. Luckily the rain hasn’t come yet at that morning, which encouraged participants and visitors alike to their time chatting and wandering around the cars to marvel some of the tasteful modifications.

Hoods were popped, wheels were cleaned, engines were revved, and all sounds were very fascinated. While everyone at the event that brought to us by Mobiloka.com had clearly put a lot of time to traveled from several cities, an effort to their pride and joys, a few stood out from the crowd which several of them will be announced to get an achievement from this event later on. Final said for this part 1 coverage, this article wasn’t the end of our great time last week.

The car we drive say a lot about us: Adhimas BMW E36
Iman Machmud

Again, the BMW E36 is one of those cars with a love it or hate it reputation. As the successor to E30, it had some rather large shoes to fill, especially with the E30 M3 being one of the most influential legendary cars of its time, the design that still gives any enthusiasts’ heart a flutter when it is seen. BMW’s designers didn’t fall short in the looks department, the E36 sporting a sleek and classy body from the factory. While the previous E30 sported a smaller physical size of it’s body, the E36 came bigger and with a newer production engine that much to be desired in terms of power, but kept with the balance of the car as BMW typically. Many of the aftermarket has developed for the E36 enthusiasts like our friend Adhimas that don’t need any complexities for what he did to achieve this looks. Please allow us to introduce the perfect built and deceived the numerous E36 built from others, Adhimas and his beauty E36.

From the countless photos and videos that I’ve seen, and the facts I’ve seen to from Indonesian stance friends that the level of demand over BMW E36 either the four door sedan or coupe one is very high. Stance on E36 has exploded over the last 3 years, and while the rest of us caught on, it didn’t mean that the Adhimas only sat idly by and watched. He kept on doing his research and honing his knowledge to pick in where position that this E36 should be among other E36s.

This E36 was built with the 2.0 L displacement. Some people said that this engine is underpowered. but as the BMW enthusiast, the 2.0 Liter engine is one of the strongest in its class. The M52 engine is an upgrade of the M50 engine on it’s successor E30. To reduce engine weight, it was produced with an aluminum block giving the engine with 166kg of weight. The Engine is equipped with a single VANOS, and the Vanos adjusts the timing of the valves by adjusting the position of the cam shaft relative to the drive gear.

In my opinion the M52 engine is a fast and responsive engine, with constant care and maintenance it could go up to higher mileage without getting a rebuild or overhaul. The Engine of the 320i is great and suit in tropical condition like Indonesia, provided that there are no air bubbles on your cooling system and you’re using proper coolant mixture then you don’t have to worry about overheating. Sometimes the main issue of the M52 engine is the piston “O” ring which tends to deteriorate when you reach 100k mileage, you’ll notice this when the engine is rattling and there’s a great loss of power. Starting the M52 engine in the morning really makes your day bright though, it has character, character and character. The 320i E36, it’s not the fastest car, it’s a bit outdated, it’s not the sleekest but for me as a driver it has character that no other car in its class can achieve. There are so many e36 running around the city despite its old age and I view it as a testament to its reliability and never fading character. Some people like Adhimas that loves speed of course felt unpleasant with “gift”, so he decided to stroked up the engine into 2.6 L, 328i crankshaft, and 325i throttle body.

Now we continue with the exterior side. As usual, one of the biggest changes if you modifying the E36 that you’ll notice is of course that full M-tech body kit. Adhimas also added a few small changes and additions though that many of us non-limited edition owners will easily overlook. A stage 1 lips below front bumper, and the M3 body line just to name a few.

On the outside also, Adhimas repainted to achieved a clean OEM look on his lady to spice things up a bit. The car is clean and simple, almost OEM-plus, yet it looks tough as nails rolling down the road or sitting still. It’s a classic look and Adhimas has done a great job not taking things too far, but things might change. He’s planning on changing a set of several old rubbers in exterior, which personally I’m not too keen on, but I’m sure Adhimas have a good reasons to pull it off.

While it may not be as low as most of the cars that featured here, there is no denying that it sits freaking beautiful. Adhimas choice of wheels is super awesome actually. A set of super rare Carline Dynatech that he got from Jay Euro Garage in Indonesia. Sized at 18×8.5″ front and 10″ rear. They were finished off with a the original polished condition. In order to have the wheels exactly where he wanted them to Ahimas actually had to restructuring the wheels before. The original condition was sold for 5 series offset, but as I mention above that Adhimas needs to differenciate it’s class from other E36’s, so with the help of Mr. Agung Wijaya from Jay Euro Garage, he remade those wheels special for E36’s fitment.

Adhimas took it upon himself for not repaint the wheels because the high polished look will give better enhancement to it’s look combined with the black milky paint on exterior. Adhimas also added some strutbars on engine bay and trunk to gives precision feeling when turning and speeding on this low condition.

These set of Carline Dynatech definitely works good on here though, and keep with the clean and classy body style. Despite being heavily influenced by the US scene, this E36 is special in the way it is finished. The execution is spot on, and this wheels makes for an instant mixed classic and modern no matter where you are.

While this might be one of the more subtle cars we’ve featured here, it doesn’t mean the car is any less impressive. It may not be as in-year-face, but that’s the whole point of the OEM+ style. Nothing is meant to jump out at you, but you find yourself staring, and the more you stare the more you discover. This E36 is all about subtle and detail. The factory-fresh OEM exterior, super rare wheels, simple, static stance, and detailed interior all executed to the highest degree of fit and finish are what make this car special. In interior side, Adhimas only upgraded the original steering wheel with the M3 type, and changing whole seats with the the Alcantara type one. The M3 speedometer also gives an impressions look on interior while he drive this beauty.

Adhimas E36 certainly has an impressive profile in Indonesia. Attractive, good stance, useful for daily use, very nice power, and famous platform heritage. This particular E36 is a great example of the total package and Adhimas is very happy and proud with the results. He tells us that he doesn’t have too many plans for its future other than enjoying it and hunting down another rare items for his stanced lady. Worth to be a great example though.

Thanks Adhimas.
