      To quote the great Dennis Rodman, it 's "bad as (it) wants to be." It's really tame if I'm in a parking lot and getting groceries, it idles silently at 45mph, and you can hear it, though it's not at all loud at 80mph (1000rpm). However, if you wear your lead boots it'll throw some smoke whenever you want it to.

He's not even been on here a year, and has 70 posts. 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.
            Your right. Sorry for being a dick. It is member spotlight not car spotlight. And to make it even worst the car isn't even finished. I'm not a hater. I think any swapped e30 is cool, especially one powered by an LSx. And his is Super Duper awesome, but couldn't have given him member spotlight, just because we've never seen an LS3 e30. Honestly compare this tread to N2MYE30's member spotlight thread. Just my .02 cents.
            I want a nice set of smoked MHW's (I know, get it line)

              Looks aren't my thing but...




              HOLY FUCK I can not even imagine what a ride in that thing feels like. V8's ftw

              Ill have a v8 in an e30 one day and even if its carb'd and only makes 250hp and weighs twice as much as an m20 i cant wait.

                And what E30 IS ever finished?

                Like I said, we're not fucking comparing e-dicks here. If you don't like it, deal with it and wait until next month. ENOUGH of this shit.

                  Ive gotten a ride in this car and honestly its fuckin awesome. It does need more things, but as its been mentioned, what E30 is ever really done.

                  I like it and I wish I had one

                        Man, great job on getting the air intake and radiator to live together like that. I REALLY love this swap (and I'm kinda one of those douche purist). This car is truly amazing.

                        Plus, I love how it hurts peoples feelings. Great job!!!
