      sorry to hear that Austin, I read your post in the 24v forum and was worried it may have been the head but didnt want to say it. :( I miss driving my E30, but luckily I bought another fun car to roll around on while I build my 24v motor the right way (*Crosses fingers not to jinx self*)

      as for me, Im off to bed at 11pm on a sat night. why?getting up in 6 hours to drive 100 miles to go auto-x a 36 year old FWD car :) should be a blast, even if it only has maybe 100bhp :rofl:

        Basically, long story short, I bought a new tstat to try out today and in the process of tightening the last bolt (13mm closest to driver's side,) it decided that it wanted to crack the aluminum where it tightens to the head and break off in 3 pieces. Sorta hard to explain, but the head casting is pretty shot. HG didn't blow and head didn't crack internally (as far as I know, no oil in coolant or vice versa.) Oh well.

        Someone buy my coupe so I can buy a supercharger and do it all at once! hahaha

              Oh man, Austin this isn't good. This is the s50 car right? Sorry to hear, hopefully you can get it back to good ASAP.

              On a side note.. Got a compliment about my car today. Felt pretty good:)

              And was going to a friends house, and it's a really windy road! So much damn fun! I love the e30...

              Also saw a Ferrari 599gto.. And a gallardo on a tow truck hit in the front:(

                Found the cause of my missfire!, hopefully this is the last problem, I gave away my other car so all I have now is my E30.

                  You probably didn't tighten the lug nuts down far enough.

                  Yes My battery terminals are cherry, but the left turn signal light is always weaker than the right side. Also I gotta order a new throttle cable...you called my last issue.

                    Just checked the torque they all torqued down. Can't check anything else till later this evening. But will try switching wheels around see if it does anything?

                      One assembly is cracked and letting dirt/moisture in? One's newer than the other? Some thoughts.

                          I just had a wobbly wheel, turns out it was a broken belt in the tire

                            Alright thanks guy will be looking into it when I get the time. It's only one wheel. So we will see.

                              My tires are way old tho they cracking.... But I don't think that would have anything to do with it wobbling.
