Awesomeness.

So, today was a exercise in precision parking. We have a big thunderstorm coming overnight, with some golf-ball size hail expected, so had to put my rides in the stable. The lift for the win. 5 cars in a 3-car space.

Yes, she is. But then again, you should see the shoe closet.

Now, I bet that would try her patience.

But in reality, I actually feel I have reached a point where I can't support any more vehicles. 5 cars is a max for me. It almost feels like there is constantly something that needs to be done on at least one of the cars. And while its fun, I feel my "car budget" is being spent on constant maintenance and fixes rather than doing something cool or buying a couple of mods, maybe. M6 is actually for sale, though I'm going back and forth about it.

Truly a great job bringing this beauty to its former glory. I just picked up my third E36 M3 yesterday and if I can get it looking half as decent as this I will be ecstatic.

Sweet car!

Love your Dakar. I had a 1999 Titanium E36 M3 for a while and sold it to get my E39 M5 which I do love but miss the E36 even though it lacks the power the M5 has it was much more fun to drive. I have always wanted a Dakar but there are now a fortune.

Sorry I'm not keeping up with all the replies. Been pretty busy with the E46, and my M6 still throwing fits, replaced both throttle body actuators ($$- ouch) this weekend.

Thanks. You will. These are great cars to work on and all parts are still available!

E39 is a special car for sure. They feel quite a bit bigger and heavier compared to E36 and that makes them more of a cruiser, than a sports car. Still fun with 400HP!
