Took some pics that came out looking really old in the snow...




Then once I got passed the one year point I picked up some Kosei K1s but I looked like a 4x4...






Then this passed summer is when the fun started to happen. I bought some TC Kline coilovers with Vorshlag camber plates, along with some other minor mods...







One last pic, because racecar...

Porsche, BMW, and Jeremy5000










Comments and criticism are welcome, but I didn't take the pics, the 997 owner did. I also might be buying the M a friend for the garage so stay tuned...

I've been accumulating quite a few parts recently and still have a ton to order so I decided to play some tetris before killing bugs with my front end Many more parts to come in the coming months since I have no sold my roll bar and maybe buy 3 piece wheels or custom RPF1s in a GB. If you look closely you will find a Bimmerworld gift card on the box that the xbrace is on, and also that box contains a new radiator. Edit: I will also add that the dresser has oil, oil filters, brake fluid, and amber lights.

But seriously, must be nice to live near trails where all that suspension travel gets used.

It's only got 6" of travel front and rear... I really wish i had more travel sometimes, so I will be swapping in a coil in the rear.

Had a BMW party at Andrew's to roll Mike's fenders and put on his wheels and my new steering wheel, and then we just did some other things too.














UFO!!!!!!!!!!




Steering wheel review: The 330mm wheel makes the steering feel so much tighter and more precise. I still can see the gauges fine, except for part of the gas and temp gauge. More pics of the steering wheel installed will come tomorrow for 3MPowered

Parts Update: I no longer can add the steering wheel and hub to tetris with my parts, but I ordered a VAC baffled oil pan and a PC'd and AKG reinforced front subframe yesterday so that should be fun.
