In Reply to: U haul tow dolly...... posted by Ritter on April 24, 2001 at 17:16:23:
I'm a watcher from the non M e30 board, but I figured it'd be the same for you as it was for me. I bought my e30 about 100 miles away with a broken timing belt and rented a U-haul trailer to pull it home. The car was a bone stock 325is and I had to pull the front spoiler off to get the front wheels on the tow dolly. I left the car in neutral and the key in the run position and got it home fine.
I also rented a U-haul trailer to tow my e28 home when I bought it (tranny stuck in 3rd gear) and I felt that was a much safer thing to do.
if your car is a 5 speed and the rear doesn't drag the tow dolly should be fine, but I'd reccomend a full trailer.
I am moving to Dallas in a couple months and I need to know if any of you all have towed your M3 with a trailer from U haul. I am planning to use the one that lifts the entire car. Are there any clearance problems? I have mine lowered 2 inches. Where can I get the spring pads that the dealers use to transport their cars? What is the correct way to secure an M3. According to the U haul website, I have to disconnect the driveshaft....is this correct?
