    Can you send the whole POS kit in to them to get them to look at it?

      Are you sure it was his forearm? Your previous joint was named the Honeycomb Hideout right?

          I currently have an early airbag-less Mtech wheel ~382mm (OD) and I have to keep my legs in awkward positions to use the pedals (I'm ~6'2").

          I'm wondering what other people are running and how they feel about the leg room and the position of the turn signal stalk (this is a daily driver).

          Couple of steering wheels I'm looking at are ~350mm with 20mm (this ends up being about the same depth as the Mtech wheel, but I think it looks the best), 70mm, or 100mm dish. I'm also considering various spacer options too.
          IMO 350 looks a bit clownish and small. I'm 6' and feel like the old Nardi 360mm wheel in my '91 is perfect. I'm just using a standard hub adapter and cranked on the stalks to get them to the depth I wanted off the wheel.

              This.

              So far my list consists of:
              Fix sunroof
              New tires
              Refinish wheels
              Timing Belt
              Replace passenger front axle
              Wheel bearing
              Front struts
              Euro grills
              Headlights
              Delete rattling cat
              Then give my paint a serious massaging.

                      CJ's custom muffler and exhaust did a really nice job on my budget exhaust on my e28. He has cut the cats out of a few cars of mine and friends, and the welds are always on point.

                      They are located in Spanaway. If you need to sell a cat, the metal recycler here in Bremerton pays $100 per e30/e28/e34 cat

                        What about e36 cats?

                        The wagon is looking extra lux now, thanks toes. Not sure if I want to drill the rockers for the skirts though.

                                PSA to anyone in Seattle area, dont use seattle wheel repair for anything. They can't even paint a wheel silver.

                                Took them 3 weeks first time, came back gray. They said they would strip and send back with a more silver color, waited 2 months. They came back the exact same color.
