Re: LTW Square 17*8.5 on stock suspension? Spacers?

I think if you aren't driving the car hard, or going lower, the standard staggered look might suit it better.

Re: Can't get rid of the shimmy

I’ll even get the BBQ.
Is the steering rack original to the car? I had a shimmy from that but it was under very different conditions, pretty much only at low speeds.

Re: BMW M2 CS unveiled

I haven't been this excited about a new car (outside any 911/gt4) since 2011.
It's the best car BMW has put out since then.

Re: E36 M3 - Pricing Advice

13-15k.

That’s the way it should be. Everyone ignores maintenance then talks about what an unreliable pile they own. This guy got ahead of the curve.

The first and third are pretty whatever, but that estoril sedan looks quite good. That’s a car I’d expect to do well.

Re: Did all 95 Hellrot M3's come with single stage paint?

Also, the engine bay is dull red in a Hellrot 1995, as well as the spare tire well. Exterior is obviously glossy shine, indicating the absence of clearcoat in the bay, as most BMWs had. Like my cars...

Re: Did all 95 Hellrot M3's come with single stage paint?

Please explain why alpine white 2/3, Dakar 2, Hellrot 96-99 cars, BRG, Santorini, etc are all 2 stage paint based on that logic.
OP also, see Toms2 above for sound logic on the car purchase.

Re: Can't get rid of the shimmy

Drive at the shimmy speed for a bit. Pull over and check your brake temps with a laser thermometer.
Passenger front is the most common one to seize due to the way the lines run, I've been told.

I’d say they’re well past due for that, but if they can hang on for as long as they have, maybe that can climb back up that cliff they are hanging on.

Most people on BAT are afraid to even bring a car in from Canada. I don’t imagine the boat ride making it more appealing.
