    BMW was about to make a e34 m5 convertible!
    So apparently they were going to make a coupe with longer doors but a vert!
    Saw it today on car buzz and thought I would share.
    I also saw a article bout our beloved e30's that they changed the way people looked at sport sedans in 84. Because now they were smaller and more powerful then the old sedans that's were huge.
    yea E34 M5 cabrios are cool, i think there are like 5 of them or something like that

        Nope, it was a 2 door but still had the e34 body, Just longer front doors.

            That and many other cool projects are tucked in a ///M bastard child section, along with the E30 M3 truck among others. My personal fav is the 8 series with a V12 motor almost as powerful as the McLaren that came out around the same time... drool. hopefully I will get a chance to see them when I tour BMW in a month

                Honda CT90 ftw. There is no small moto that has as good of documentation, parts availability, ease of maintenance, and pure awesome. Stevo bought his (and hasn't touched it since) for $500 with a milk crate on the back.

                  I like the Honda CT90, but there is too much of a following and the prices are insane, I'm talking I want to spend like 100-200$ for a fixer.

                  Plus I like the oddball brands better.

                      So I read on the internet (yeahhh, I know..)

                      You can run an Eta valve cover on a 325iS head as long as you use the proper "intake manifold support bracket", and vice versa. Anyone know this to be true? I'm going to check when I get home from work, just figured I'd ask in case someone has been in this predicament before. Love you guys.

                        You can, I'm not sure why you would (unless you like that particular valve cover better than the "I" one.)

                        In other news, WTF is with that shit in Boston? Fucking insanity.

                          Agreed, horrible things we do to each other.

                            lets just hope the number of killed doesn't go up. this will be a miracle if it stays at two.

                              It's more of a matter of using what I have! I have two Eta VC's, and no 325i VC's. Got a lead on one, but i'd rather use what I have for free instead of getting another VC.

                              If my lead on a 325i VC falls through tonight, i'm going to "shave and smooth" out the Eta VC, paint it and run it.

                                Drummers:

                                Just set my kit up for the first time in a few years. I got broke a while back and sold off some of my cymbals, notably, my only chinese trash cymbal. I regret doing this, and am now looking for a new one. Any recommendations? The majority of my stuff is Zildjian K (I'm a fan of the dark stuff) so would prefer something that flows with the rest of that.
