    Getting a rear muffler put on today(magnaflow). I have been driving with only a cat and 2.25 inch straight exhaust pipe dumped right after the rear axle. I had to cut the rear muffler off 3 weeks ago,it was breaking off. Its been a VERY loud 3 weeks lol.

      Might be picking up a rare euro goodie for the E34. Not sure which one yet. Really I'm only interested because I have never seen one and I have always toyed with the thought of getting smoked tail lights for one of the cars one of these days. This would make a nice addition. Thoughts?



      A pic installed with smoked tails.

        Thats a nice piece, it doesnt look like it would be much different than what you have now, but with the smoked lights it will flow nicely. When I had my E34 M5, it came with Hella Smoked tails, I sold them because I didnt like the black taillights on black car look.

        As far as the living in CA thing VS everywhere else goes, I grew up in CA moved to WA for 7 years and just moved back. I loved it up there, but it wasnt quite for me, I hated being so far from my family and friends that I grew up with. Havent regretted anything since moving down except for the fiasco that is my 24v swap... If I ever move again, I'm moving to Germany, no joke.

          california was a wonderful place to come to back in the day. my immigrant grandparents fled their countries and moved here, legally of course, and settled in california because it was the go to place. however, i don't see that anymore. everything is politically correct here, highest taxes for everything and it will be going up even more, our crime rate isn't the highest but it's pretty damn bad, high cost of living compared to income, etc, etc. even if i had millions, i wouldn't permanently live in california.

          i would be more than happy to come visit, but i would have no intent on staying again.
          Well said Travis.

              Tell me this^ AFTER u move away for awhile. The grass is ALWAYS "greener"
              Btw- move to Ventura. Lol
              The valley isn't "California" in my eyes....move out of greater la for a while, then I think u might reevaluate.
              i will once i'm gone. i really don't see what there is to miss, espeically in los angeles. you may be right about other parts of california, but there are so many other places to live that offer much better ways of life.

                It's all in the detail. Agreed it should be very subtle compared to whats already on there. I also agree about the smoked tails in that they only work well on certain color cars and those cars really need to be pretty agressive to begin with to pull off the look. I won't run it until smoked tails are aquired. Probably won't be a long term thing for either car but something to change it up a little.

                As for Cali living, I have never lived outside of Cali but have thought about it on several occasions. I would like to at some point just to say I did it and experience something else but Cali will always be home. I really miss LA and will be back in the near future I hope. It's deffinitely not for everyone but for those that like it, there is no place that can compare.

                  It all depends on what you like to do. In WA if you're into outdoor stuff like hiking, skiing snowboarding, etc then its a great place, but Im not so I was bored a lot. I enjoy being outside, love brown women, and enjoy going to the beach and those are things that you can do here pretty much year 'round, but not in Seattle, unless you enjoy being in sub 50 degree weather. to each his own...

                      I'm only pulling your leg man, I hear what you're saying.
                      Is there better than Cali? Yes
                      Would I like to live there? Yes
                      Could I survive away from home (parents/family/friends)? No

                        of course, that would be my only drawback!

                              Damn. Evidently wasn't quick enough on the euro smoked hella thingy for the e34. Oh well. I need to stop getting distracted away from the engine build in front of me.
