                Is it gay just to have one fixed back racing seat in a street car?

                    Filled n drilled. 20mm spacers all around. 205/40 I believe. I may cut the front spacers to 15. Not sure. Was running 10 in front but I made some adjustments recently.

                      Word to that. My old M50 was stuck in open loop because it had a broken tstat or no tstat, never cared enough to find out, because it was high miles and getting swapped out anyway. I owned the car for almost two years and 40k miles with it rarely getting to operating temp. Never again. I have too much money in my S50 to ruin it like that.

                        Anyone have a known good cluster I could test out in my car to eliminate that from the problems I'm having? My car is a 84 318, would prefer around the JBLM area.

                          The Mini will be fun in twisties, but if you're sitting on a highway it will be boring as hell. The interior toggle switches on *everything* get annoying too. The Camaro is supposed to handle great and have good pull, it's just gonna be a bigger, heavier monster of course.

                              Thinking. Do I repair my original comfort seats in the 6 and swap them out from the current e30 sport seats in right now? As it is, the e30 seat sits higher, causing my hair to touch the headliner. It's is a little bothersome, but tolerable. The sport seats don't allow much in the way of hips.
