    I drove a Honda Fit Saturday. Well I only drove it for a block... it was a 5 speed though! I clutched in with my right foot and just sort of dropped it with my right foot on the gas... never got into second though

    My buddy drove it around my neighborhood, SNAPPY car. We burned through first into second.. lots of torque. I would buy one

      You just need a trailer to haul behind it full of spare wheels and tires hahaha. I am pretty sure guys that are serious about track events tow trailers with them

        If so, then yes. For a little bit. I have yet to see what the front fitment will be, and I still need 225/40R18s for the fronts.
        Yeah I was talking about the Style 162's. Its going to look sweet I think. I haven't seen a Z3 with those on before but I think the big flatfish surface will really pop with the lines of the car. Are they heavy?

                  Fuck studded tires!!!!!!! I don't mind if you want to put them on and actually go up to the mountain and then take them off afterwords. However, driving around on them during fucking Spring is complete bullshit.

                    I'm personally going to be running two set's of tires. SP/SM & FL/WT set. Oregon may go through maybe 1-2 bad weeks total of really bad weather for it's climate, but nothing extreme. I want to say to everyone that cracks the roads: "You complain about the state taking this and that out of your taxes, well now you know why you fool."

                    On another note, off to the junkyard for a 325i driveshaft, flywheel, & now a shifter/shift boot. I'll be asking questions I'm sure and I hope I dont need anything else.

                            I will not be studding the tires. It is not worth it the consequences. The i-pikes are nice as well. I went with the Arctics due to their superb unstudied snow and ice performance. But I do go up to the mountain every couple days. I usually log an average of 80-100 days of riding depending on conditions.

                              This is true haha. However, I'm not that hardcore about hauling wheels to and from the dealership ;)

                              I'll try them out for a little while to see if I like them or not, haha. I mean, I got them for a rather good price ;) I have to agree with you on the big flatfish surface. I'm hoping for the best! If push comes to shove, I'll try a different color.

                              I was advised by a service adviser that he needs to borrow the style 162's for a week or so, since his wheels are going to be powdered coated. I guess the wait becomes longer.

                                No dice on the flywheel, but the car did need a new e-brake which I found. The current dash is cracked to all hell, but I found one with two very very tiny cracks for only 40$paying along with the e-brake. I really feel like I need to talk to someone to make sure I am covering everything. Don't have a huge amount of cash flow, but want to replace some bushings if I can and my goodness I totally forgot about fluids.

                                I need OEM parts and not excessively expensive. Can't find this blunttech or b and m place? I need a shifter, suspension bushings, good place for hoses for the engine. What is the going rate on shifters? I see some users doing a Z3 or Z4 mod ummm transmission bushings I should look into and omgosh I need transmission braces or bracers.

                                Lucky, think the blower heater you have would work in the 86' 325e?
