      Friends 240 decided to blow up second gear on his first lap out. He changed it though to drive the next day.

      Last picture is my favorite for sure. Took forever but I can finally drive with my friends. Their cars are fast though both of them can pull away from me after a transition but they're also on 235/40/17's and I'm only on some 205/45/16's so they have a lot more grip than me. I think I'm going to try and lower the car a little and run a 215/40/17 in the rear so I can get a little more wheel speed and grip out of the car without needing to cut the body up for fender flares or over fenders....

      Also car did something weird on Friday night and the steering got super hard and it ended up whipping the car around near the bank. I don't know if something is up with the rack or what I swapped out the power steering pump since I had a spare with me and it seemed to work okay after it's still a littl heavy in some spots and doesn't really want to self steer as nicely as it did prior. I might take the Z3 rack out and swap a non-m3 e36 rack into the car and see if it makes a difference is I have another problem with it. Also need to paint the car blue again. I would like to actually paint it some what nice but it'll probably end up being rattle cans again....

            I agree, it'll be lower soon.

            Thanks! I love them so much perfect fitment and style for the car I got realllllly lucky and found them one night on craiglist for fairly cheap. I have yet to find another set and I want more especially some 17" ones.
