    What gives!
    Just purchased Federals in size 16/225s we'll see how that works, as I am coming from the Direzza family too.

      195/60R-14 General AltiMAX RT43 is what I run. Good tire, would recommend. It's slightly smaller than stock, so your speedo will be a little off at high speed. Not a big deal.

            Thanks for that tip! Seems like a pretty good option

                    Perhaps some people already know this, but figured I'd pass the info along for the 24 valve swapped crowd.

                    Recently I swapped my 6-cylinder e36 radiator for an off-the-shelf Behr Z3M S54 radiator a few weeks ago and the car seems to overall run a bit cooler in stop and go traffic (half way mark on temp gauge vs a few ticks over half way previously). I only have a 16" Spal pusher fan with the 80/88 degree temp switch and 88 degree thermostat for reference. The core is thicker, but you can still use stock e36 top & bottom radiator hoses without any modifications. For ~150 bucks and a little better cooling, it seems like a no-brainer. Granted weather is a bit cooler this time of year, but may be handy for the summer months.

                    Only down sides so far is the car takes a little longer to warm up when cold, and I think a fan clutch setup is not going to fit without shaving fan blades (e36 diesel fan may fit with fan clutch mounted on front, but blades have to be notched/shaved to clear vanos unit).

                          Hey, how's it going guys?? I recently picked up some bosch euro smileys and realized that they didn't have any bulb caps (photo attached below for reference). This may be a stretch but is there anyone in the SoCal area that has spares of these?

                            Is it possible to siphon gas out of an E30's tank?

                              yes, if you have a gas tank with the crossover pipe onthe bottom just loosen one side and gas will come out . or some tanks have a drain bolt by the fuel pump. i only know from my early model.
                              or if you supply 12v to the internal fuel pump and attach a hose to it and catch it in a bucket. just be careful

                                Ah, yeah that would work.
                                But I was asking more along the lines of inserting a tube through the filler neck to siphon out the gas. I know newer cars have a plate that blocks the path to prevent gas theft; if I had a hose, I'd try it myself.
