looks like a perfect time to do the cabin microfilter if you havent done it yet as well...

clean that carpet, pick up the loose change, and adjust the ebrake cables...



congrats and keep up the de-luxing

Helllz ya.

Did the microfilter when I first got the car @ 110k.

Don't the e-brakes have to be adjusted @ the rear hubs?


The pictured lux center console is up for grabs.

WTH were people thinking paying extra for the lux package? I find it interesting that no-option cars cost the least new and are now the most valuable.

The type of crowd who pursues one of these now VS. who pursued one of these when new is a big difference. We are not wealthy businessmen looking for a luxurious sports car. We're middle-aged (well, mostly) middle income (well, mostly) mod whores looking to make it as fast we can by reverse engineering 2 years of design and engineering work done by some of the most renown engineers in the world.

But who really cares?

The tires are 1 set of blizzaks for the future, and some cheap kumhos I got for free that I'm going to burn up when I get my auto-x wheels. (k1's hopefully.) Bagged on the top right are my summer tires/CSL reps.

As far as the head, block, and crank parts laying around: That's a 3.5L M30B34 motor from a 1989 m535 a buddy of mine and I are rebuilding. After some MAJOR suspension work, and reinforcing we have a 2002 chassis were going to drop it into.
