Re: 50 Shades of Grey: trio of e36 M3s

Beautiful! :drool:

So refreshing to see some nice clean OE+ E36s when most are completely ratted out.

Do the owner of the AW a favor and tell him to put the stock grills and fogs back on :P

Re: Bray's 96 M3 Journal

Great work on the mid pipe!

The Bimmerworld Group N mounts are a tad stiff imho for the street. On my E36 I couldn't deal with the shaking at idle (but raising it a touch did the trick).
