    Somebody asked about upcoming projects:
    - rack and pinion decided to stop turning last week. Waiting on the Rack Doctor to send me a ZHP rack. Something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, just needed a push.
    - finned Z4M 3.23 diff waiting to be installed. Put in new clothes and carrier bearings along with the Garagistic second mount.
    - E46 M3 6-sp trans has been sitting in the corner since I picked it up five years ago. This may or may not happen, since I'll need a new flywheel and clutch and shifter parts ($$$).
    There’s more, but those are the major ones for the year.

        Going behind the S52 in my e30. The 5 spd that came with the engine is getting a little tired (240k) and I’d like a little lower rpm during my daily commute on the freeway. I’ve got the short front half of the drive-shaft and none of anything else. Need to start accumulating the parts.

          Hello all,

          I purchased my new M235i today, so I will be posting my e30 on CL. Just thought I would mention it here as I have received tons of help from the forum members. I am in West Linn if anyone wants to see it. You can ask also check with Austin on his opinion, as he was my go to mechanic. New timing belt, rotors, pads, hoses and tons of other stuff. I tried to get all the work done that the PPI and Austin noted. It would likely need the AC recharged/updated if you want it. Runs great, interior is VERY good for original. Top is in great shape and the electric motors work. More pics on CL, but R3V price or $3500 for the forum.

          Thx,
          Mark

                    Anyone know of a decent shop in the Port Angeles area for a PPI on a truck? I'm in Seattle and would prefer not to drive out there only to find out it's junk, only so much can be determined via pics.
                    Thanks for any input!
                    Cheers

                        nope, still alive, still working.

                        bought a 318is on Monday (happy birthday to me), a really solid, brilliant red/natur tan, 140k mile car. the former owner started to do an M50nv conversion, but it never got finished. i bought a replacement complete M42 drivetrain, and have it on the stand, ready to be regasketed and hopefully will shove it back in the car this weekend.

                        i'm really surprised how excited i am about a 318is. wouldn't have caught me dead, driving one of these things, ten years ago. oh, how age changes people..

                        also, rebuilt all the suspension on my red s50 car, a couple weeks back. i installed a full GC/Koni e30 m3 complete setup, all rebuilt/powder coated brakes, control arms, master cylinder, wheel bearings, blah blah blah. had an e30 m3 cluster and a full set of gauges that i've been delaying installing for the better part of a decade, so i installed all that stuff. something to do, i guess.
