Re: Car shipper from CO to CA

The e36 is a very forgiving car, and confidence inspiring. I certainly noticed though when going to a square setup it was even more confidence inspiring, but less forgiving haha.

I don't think there is a more appealing car in the world to me than a 964 in an interesting colour. Perfect blend of old and new, practical and ridiculous. One day.........

Yes. Do it.
On a semi related note. When you swap in an s54 what are you doing with your s50b32?

Re: Would you buy a Euro E36 M3 as an enthusiast?

Chino is someone I’d wanna buy a car off of. This car is a great way to get into an e36 without all the bullshit. I’d tell you to keep it, but you got too many cars anyways lol.

Re: Would you buy a Euro E36 M3 as an enthusiast?

Pretty sure I’ve said it in here before, but prices being equal, I’d prefer the s50b32. Cable throttle is life yo.
