      1017 racing and restoration just built their garage and was installing lifts last week. They were talking about having a bbq down here in colorado springs. Maybe in a couple weeks we can get something going. i'll get with Rick and see what he is thinking, Ideally i'll have my turbo back by then.

        We should set up that BBQ or another gathering. Went to the local euro meet and didn't even stay 10 minutes-- too many car people smoking and vaping, too few hoods open with people actually talking about their vehicles.

        Been busy with things

        Engine swap, misc fixes and megasquirt tuning the 633T






        Misc upkeep fixes on my wife's secondary car





        Working on head refresh of euro E24



        Mountain driving and various trips through the state

            I've changed routes, no longer going E28, drove my buddies 325i today and totally changed my opinion, going E30 for sure! if anyone sees anything let me know!

              Hey guys so there is a 91 318is in red up in Aspen, the guy wants 1800 for it, its red, he's going to shoot me over some pictures of it and if I could get him down on the price that could potentially be a good start if there's no rust or anything, but how slow are they? what are my options for more power? what should I look out for?

                They're pretty slow in a straight line, 100-120whp. Test drive it first, of course
                Be weary of rattling from the engine (chain/tensioners/guides) and, of course, rust. The M42 is a pretty smooth engine and you shouldn't really feel any hesitations or rough idling. They're quite solid otherwise, just don't plan on using an 1800 E30 as your daily, or as reliable transportation. E30s don't really have the best rep for being... um... always working.

                  I appreciate the input, and that's all good stuff to know, the car may one day be daily, is the 318is a car that could one day be worth swapping? My buddy has an m50 that he said he'd sell me with a trans or what about making the m42 a 2L or boosting it? I've heard they are light... that would be an advantage but stock I feel like I'd rather have a 325, but if this 318is could work then it wouldn't be bad but he was also saying it needs trans work but from what I was reading it sounds like it's more cost effective to just buy a used trans...

                    Or would it be better to buy this what looks to be clean 4 door 325 that's auto and then swap in a 5 speed....

                      Slow in a straight line doesn't mean it isn't fun! There are so many tracks in Colorado and that's where the E30 really is the most fun. Drive both cars. Depending on your situation I would opt for the slower 5 speed over the faster auto if you want to have fun with the car every now and then.

                        Well my thought is if that 318 needs trans work then maybe it would be a good opportunity to swap it if I could find a motor and trans that would go in so I'm not sure what to do ughhhh

                          Hey guys, I'm heading down to Pikes Peak for the hill climb on Sunday. I haven't been before, anybody have any suggestions on the best spot to spectate?

                            From everything I know everyone has always told me go early, I know last year they had a shuttle you could go up on, but other than that I'm not super familiar!
