  1. Did a mountain on the most overrated "driving" road in the country. At least the other spots we hit up before it were good. P.S. if you're in the area of the ToD hit up Joyce Kilmer Rd. Joyce Kilmer > 129. Elliott bought his "new" RHD Scottish import 944 S2 for a shake down.
  2. SCCA Track Night at Atlanta Motorsports Park
  3. Got the HRE 535's on. Need to drive it and get the suspension to settle. Also need to go beat on it since I have a track day on the 12th.
  4. Still need to shave and recess the front bumper. And shave the rear bumper. - changed the oil - changed trans-axle fluid - brake fluid flush - coolant flush - new spark plugs - new fuel filter Put the autocross wheels on it to see how they will look. Going to run square 16x8 951 rears. Got some cheap 225/50-16 RT615K+'s to run.
  5. ^ Loved the ST's on my E36. Poor man KW's. No more sedan. Living that touring life now. 😎 Swapped all the sedan parts over to the wagon. BMWCCA auto-cross is back on next month. So I need to get it ready. Still need to install the M3 SMG steering wheel, 330i front brakes ( w/centric blanks and hawk 5.0 pads) and Federal RSRR's. 18x8 +13 M parallels Raceland Ultimos (Came on the car. Probably get ST XTA's down the road) Adjustable rear camber arms Ultra Racing front strut brace Garagistic rear strut brace 30mm adjustable M3 front sway bar EST rear sway bar Borla Cat back Afe intake Electric fan All new fluids: OEM coolant, Redline transmission, Valvoline diff, Ate brake and Liqui Moly engine. Misc: Installed a later oem head-unit and oem auxiliary cable. The sedan Bavsound speakers fit the touring. 😁 Also might be picking this up. I have a problem. 🤓 Early NA with all the basic mods already done. The plan would be to just install the old Weltmister springs, KLA strut mounts, KLA strut brace and fat oem sway bars I have and hopefully call it done.
  6. I just use XP compatibility mode on W10. 🤷‍♂️
  7. Swapped the valve body on the Cayenne. Was getting delayed rough shifts occasionally when merging or passing on the highway / interstate. So much fluid. I don't think the smell is coming out of that shirt. 😁
  8. Feel like poop. Need to do them. Also got a rear sub-frame reinforcement kit to install.
  9. Been doing a little bit of work here and there on the E46 330i. I was getting it ready for the local BMW CCA AutoX and the occasional HPDE but who knows how this season will go now. H&R race springs Koni Actives (came on the car, not fan. Not enough travel for the H&R's. Looking at ST XTA coilovers.) E46 M3 front sway ECS Tuning rear sway bar Turner Camber front plates Godspeed rear camber arms Ultra Racing front strut brace Garagistic rear strut brace Garagistic stainless brakes lines ATE Amber fluid EBC Yellow Stuff brake pads (damaged box dirt cheap 🙂) Corbeau FX1 Pro seat DS1's with Federal RS-RR's Also did a tune up. Coils, Plugs, hot air intake (factory box was cracked / broken), fuel filter, valve cover gasket, diff fluid and transmission fluid. Also might throw on the mechanical fan delete I have sitting in the garage. Still need to install the Bimmerbrake headers. And at some point do the manual swap (picked that up for $300 😁). It came with some rice-tastic headlights and taillights swapped them back to stock.
  10. Got the clear front side markers on the 944. 😎 Need put the clear side markers on the 955 one day too. 😂
  11. Put an EZ lip on the 944. Still waiting on those clear front side markers. 🙄
  12. Some non Volvo pics from Alpine Vag Fair. Before: After: Some guys (JVC) red S70 in the background.
  13. Gary seen my old wagon with Billy HD's. He seemed surprised how "low" it was. I would just get coil-overs if I were you. I wanted KW's but had an Enjuku coupon so I went with the BC's. I don't care for the dampening adjustment honestly. I plan to install them tomorrow.
  14. During a company meeting. "Just because it's legal in some states doesn't make it ok. It's still against company policy." Ok...
  15. The one thing I don't like about the E36. Step 1 to every project is "remove intake manifold."
  16. Found an old pic on my phone. Federal 595 RSR 225-40/18 next to Firestone Indy 500 225-40/18. Both tires are stacked two high.
  17. Rinsed the E36 off. Maybe I will wash it one day... maybe.
  18. Federals have always seemed to run a size a wide. A 215/40-17 is more like a 225/40-17.
  19. A lot of people say the RSR's or RSRR's get gummy after long stints but we've never had a problem. The RE71Rs are super fun/sticky but they marble up corners. I think everyone just knows its a cheater tire (no where near 200 tread wear). I just like the Federals for the bang for the buck. I'm sure everything similar is better (RE71, AD08, Rivial, RS4, V720) but for like $400 for all four tires. I can't complain at all. I'll take a .1 second hit for saving hundreds of dollars.
  20. Yup. Also got the newer model RSRR's on the M3. I love them. For the money I can't think of anything stickier. Daily Firestone Indy 500's. Weekend toy Federal RSR's or the newer RSRR's
