Re: e88 specs 18x11 295/30?

The white race car in your original post looks to have really worked over fenders and negative camber. Looks good on a race car but I don't think it would look good on a street car. Moving down...

Why do you need a 295 out back? It seems like it would be unnecessary and only create problems for you on this platform.

Re: JaredMV's M3 Touring Build

Looks like we have very similar projects! I remember seeing that wagon posted, looks like it went to a good home. Look forward to updates :)

Re: The Perfect Dog Transporter? - My 2000 Touring Journal

Unfortunately, pulling the motor and trans as a unit didn't work out for me. While I'm sure it's possible, I just didn't have enough space to make it happen how I wanted. I decided to go about it a...

Re: Car Washing Product Plug

Most likely it contains fillers that are making it look good after you are done. I believe they recommend using a fresh section of microfiber for each swipe on these kinds of wash systems. ...

Re: Car Washing Product Plug

I don't really trust waterless washes. In my opinion, they should only be used as a last resort if water is not available.

What types of microfibers are you using with this process?

Re: Restoration Journal - Imola 6MT Cpe

The front end refresh makes the car look brand new again, they did a great job on it. Painting the reflectors was a nice touch as well.

Re: The Perfect Dog Transporter? - My 2000 Touring Journal

Did a little work on the donor. Decided to pull off a headlight to see how easily this thing was going to come apart. As expected, it's basically a giant tinker toy. About 40 mins later I had most...

This car was built 04/2000, which left a lot of questions on whether it would have a single or dual stage airbag. Some sources said the change to dual stage happened in April while others stated...

Re: Buying a new Range Rover Sport ... crazy?

"Bumper to bumper warranty" would make any RR tempting. Go for it as long as you can stomach the depreciation.

Refinement is kinda thrown out the window when you gut the interior, but I know what you're saying. I change my answer to Porsche then :shifty:

Re: High mileage 6spd coupe
