  • Team Hybrid - - E36


    Congratulations to my BMW E36 for being featured on K&N's latest news section on their website. K&N news title, "Fully Custom BMW 328IS E36 Owned by Team Hybrid President James Lin Blends Style and Performance."

    As one of the most reoccurring vehicles on Car and Driver's annual "Ten Best" list, the BMW 3 series is a true ultimate driving machine balancing both performance and style. There is one 1996 BMW 328IS on the road today showing how this sweet combination dubbed "streetability," creates a perfectly harmonious blend capturing the complete identity of Team Hybrid founder James Lin. Hailing from Hsin-Chu City in Taiwan and based in Oxnard, California, James Lin is a major player in the automotive world. Lin's E36 has been spotted and honored at these recent events:

    -3rd Place BMW and StopTech car for 2012 Motion Auto Show
    -3rd Place Euro/Other and NOS Energy Drink car at Import Showoff-Nisei
    -K&N car at Formula D, Irwindale race event

    Recently, K&N was able to catch up with Lin to talk about his E36 and how he was inspired to build such completely custom ride.

    What inspired you to have a passion for modifying cars?
    "Founding team Hybrid and Hybrid Hunnyz in January of 1995... dominating year after year... and reaching many of our team's milestones."

    What drew you to this specific model?
    "The DTM styling and the classic [look of the] BMW E36."

    When asked further about the uniqueness of his E36, Lin shared how it served as the test vehicle for the Tokico Illumina 5-Way adjustable shocks as well as how the car sports a motorized audio setup allowing the 4 SONY amps in the trunk to be raised with all the other electronic features loaded into this BMW. James also installed a K&N high performance intake kit among the other performance upgrades in the E36's engine bay. A full catalog of all James' mods is been listed:
