        Yeah the "mess" thing seems over-played, but I still want to do what we discussed at least to the vacuum lines. ***Here's your reminder about part #'s btw Ryann*** Also the Res on the radiator was empty so I need to get some BMW coolant. Do I go half and half with non-tap water?

        I'm into the planets, stars, solar system, universe, & holy shit the sonic boom was :shock:

        It has been a nice surprise to wake up to a sunny day, shades ready to go, & an Alpine E30 waiting to take the dive on a new bottle cap rim color.

                Not did it in.......oil pump gears were worn down so it didn't have healthy oil pressure for the impending turbo

                              Stripping the parts car down now. Drivetrain removal should be a snap.

                                I knew that my Dad had one of those new (back then having a BMW actually meant that you were a driver and car guy, not just someone with money to burn) and it was nothing but trouble. Anyway, I sent him the link to it, he responded: At first I thought it was my old car, since I sold mine to a guy in Seattle, but mine wasn’t air conditioned. Visually identical.

                                Definitely pretty, but also pretty high on his "thank God I sold that" list.
