    Just want to say congrats, I saw your car at the picnic. Sounds crazy! Especially coming from an e30. On the brake thing, Look into Massive's BBK, definitely not 3k.

      You're misinterpreting my message, the point was that past features had to do with the member and their build, not just the car. But if it only has to do with the car itself, and it has nothing to do with the person and process of building it, then why is it called member spotlight? Not saying it has anything to do with amount of posts they have, but by even calling it member spotlight, and starting it with a short bio, you're implying it has at least something to do with the person or their work that went into it, and not all just the car.

      Well that would certainly explain it.:roll: Why don't you call it "Car that MR 325 likes of the month."

      At least now people know that this feature only has to do with your opinion. The car is different from the others because of the swap (even though it's been done before) but theres not much else special about it. As a whole car it's lacking. Brakes and suspension in particular.

      The point is, it's selfish to only include yourself in the decision process and not include the community at all.

          And time for me to jump in.....


          You did come off as a bitch in the post and he responded back as one would expect. Not every one of these will come to everyones liking. The dude is a member here so it isnt like we are going over to e30zone or e30tech and picking members from there and posting them up on here.So what if there is a short bio about the guy? Not everyone wants to tell a life story. And as far as Matt picking the cars. From the time we have been doing these COTM or Member Spotlight as it is called now. 90% of the time the cars have been hand picked by one person ;) In the begining the mods all chipped in. But after that it was up to the person doing it. Like Me, Jparker, Matt, and 2mo of Brewcity. These things do get to be a pita to do after awhile, and thats why i stopped doing it. And we dont have the community chime in on who should get COTM cause there would be too much bitching to who would get it and then there would be nothing to show for it. I think you just need to cool down and get a catalog to look at and look through a nice selection of headers! :p

            VinniE30: It's r3v. Anyone can post on this forum. If you want to post a VinniE30 Member of the Month thread: go for it. This is a thread. It's interesting. If you don't like what you see, create something better.

            Don't shit on threads people make for no other reason than to share something cool. Also, don't act all indignant when they get pissed at you for said shit.

              Just to defend those who cannot speak for themselves, my car. In regards to it "lacking":

              It's the first LS3-E30 swap, actually. Until SEMA this year (which was an M3), it was the only one. And before you say that an LS1 and LS3 is practically the same thing, as someone who's never done it before, you are wrong; it most-definitely isn't the same. The greatest similarity was the cylinder-count. We had substantial slowdowns because of a massive amount of custom fabrication that had to be done. The radiator was custom designed to fit with our air intake system, complete with cutout for the air intake. Hand built in house as well. It has the cleanest exhaust system of any LS swap (featured in the build thread), custom-designed 3" pipes throughout and a crossover amidship. Exhaust manifolds had to be highly modified as well. A swap of this magnitude is intrinsically difficult and as a whole it is almost certainly one of the most difficult and technologically complex E30 swaps out there. Lacking? You're right, maybe I should have left the stock motor in, since it's not at all a unique build.

              it's true that you can't please everyone, I suppose that I just need to concede that my standards, and evidently most-all of our standards aren't up to those of VinniE30, maybe some day we'll live up to your truly lofty standards.

                Beautiful car, I just feel like someone is getting butt hurt.

                EDIT: I also saw and heard it in person at the E30 Picnic this year. It was totally rad.

                      On another note, you should look in to the UUC BBK. It really is excellent for the price! Talk to ZM Blue Devil (Guten Parts) about getting one. I've got it on my turbo E30 and love it.

                      I'm truly sorry this Vinnie guy is shitting on your thread. I would clean up the posts but I prefer to share his ignorance with the world.

                      Again, love the car.

                        I had a c6 with a LS3 and that was insane, I can only imagine what insanity this car brings!.

                          Good on you for featuring this car.
                          Too many good E30s and not enough months to keep everyone happy.

                            I'll take a look! I've actually been really impressed with Ireland Engineering's crossdrilled disks and pads kit, but know that come track season when I actually want to learn to drive the damn thing, I'll want a BBK setup.

                            No worries about the guy, he's literally the only person that I've ever seen to speak ill of it so I'm not really taking it to heart.

                            I just can't wait for the new interior, choosing hides and the right shop now....

He made a post in members rides with some pictures of the build but didin't even have a build/project thread. I'm not even gonna comment on the swap because it's very controversial but this is not member spotlight/cotm worthy and i'm not even saying that because of the american engine swap.
                                How has simon not gotten cotm yet after his meticulous restoration with the most detailed and epic project thread i've ever seen.
