          ^ bought my 91 for 1,000 and an 86 for 600.
          those where the days. back then people would say bmws are expensive to work ect.
          this was early 00s.

          i bet tial makes more money on selling wastegate springs than wastegates.

          you need 3 springs for the mvr. at 8bux each.

              I paid $3400 for my 70k mile 325es in 2006. Total time capsule. Got in a bad wreck in 2012 with it, still my favorite car.

              How about this for apples? I paid $48,000 for my 2/2 ranch style house in 1998. :( My first kid was just born, now graduating college in 7 weeks.

                  The RacingDiffs 4 clutch upgrade kits are 20% off for the next 20 minutes:
                  I assume their 3.13-4.10 kits are also on sale, but here's the 2.78-3.07 kit that I just bought. Hopefully can combine this kit, my e36 2.93, and an old s3.73

                    I paid $3,800 for my car.

                    I way over paid, but I didn't know that at the time.

                    Fun fact, I've tried to buy the E30 several times over the years, Eric wanted $6,000 at one point, then $4,500.
                    Over quite a few beers, I told him to keep the Schmidt wheels, and we agreed on $3,800.

                    Car was really worth about $2,000.

                      Yeah, I don't need this much grip.
                      But, on hard turns, when one wheel is almost unloaded, I do get a bit of one tire fire.
                      My diff needs new clutches.

                        Thanks, picking up a set for 4.10. One of the endurance cars lost the diff clutches at Sebring last month. First time we ever corded a fresh tire within a 14hr (right rear, Sebring is a clockwise track).

                          Saturday I get in my wife's escalade esv(2010) and I go to take off and I hear a really bad grinding noise. Sounds like plastic gears grinding on each other. This doesn't happen all the time and can occur in a corner or going straight. All while under throttle.

                          Not know what it could be, doesn't seem like a hub where it is a constant roar or while turning. So yesterday I took the day off from work as a sick day(allergies are killing me) and got the vehicle up on jack stands. Had the wife get in and then give it gas and then brake.

                          While she was doing this I could see the whole drive train move. I guess you would call them subframe mounts would raise like an inch and then under the hood I could see the motor mounts move as well allowing the motor to move.

                          But I never heard the noise while it was on the jack stands...

                          very weird...

                            other than an lsd going with no rear swaybar was the best thing i've done to grip the turns

                              I've been trying to replace my current 4 clutch 3.73 ever since I swapped the car in like 2015, but I haven't had luck finding an e30 s2.93 or anything I can harvest the carrier cap from, so this solves a few issues at the same time I guess.

                              The difference between 4 clutch and stock is noticeable on throttle in corners. I think my current diff has stock ramps and I'm not really sure if I should do anything to the ramps on the next one.

                              Pasi threw one of these kits in two different cars and he ended up having to machine ~1mm off the cap still before install, so measure the stackup I guess.

                                Yeah open diff + sway delete works OK.

                                Northern, good to know. Might have to dust off my surface grinder. :/ As far as the ramps, I have been meaning to try factory accel and 0 decel, but alas my stuff always gets worked on last lol.
