          god damn I hate hondas. Call me dumb, but I think a timing belt on an m20 is easier than this d15a2. Honda uses a stupid fucking design for the tensioner in my opinion. took me 4 tries to get this thing timed right. I hope it starts.

              ^ nice car. the style 32s look great. I have the LSD differential that is the right ratio for it, if you are looking for a great upgrade.

                Thanks it has 273k which i think is alot but the ac blows cold and it's been almost 100 over here for the last week...

                It's hard to tell from the pics but someone either painted or plastidipped the wheels to match the car. The fronts are almost worn off but the backs are still mostly painted. Im gonna have to do some research on what to do with the wheel mess. The tires are literally brand new so im gonna figure something out.

                Im not sure what diff it has in it but it's way better than whatever was in my 93 525i s50. Ill have to look.

                    I love it here, but i also love driving in the rain... :/

                    I have been brainstorming for an event over here. Id love to see the block in front of our restaurant downtown packed with e30s like they do with the classic car show. Im thinking august, or maybe september.

                        Just spent $300 on E30 M3 rear caliper brackets...fucking horseshit for two little pieces of cast.

                          Do the world a favor and get them 3D scanned then you can print them up (relatively) easily.

                            I planned on that, since there are now 4 sets left in the world. Luckily my brother works in a machine shop and can do that fairly easily.

                              at 4 sets left id start making forged ones and selling them ha.

                              Or just get better brakes.

                                Stock e30 m3 brakes are more than ample for an occasional driver. I would have done e36 m brakes and called it a day but nobody makes the rotor spacer any longer.
