    I really like it. But I really couldn't care less for the 2.7. It takes a crazy amount of effort/money to get beyond the 450whp mark. After doing a full stage3 setup supporting mods on a friends allroad I don't have any interest in mod'ing this engine. I took the car on trade for my old audi 90 with the intention of LS swapping it at some point but there are always projects ahead of it. So I just manual swapped it and ditched the panda interior for black with some b8 recaros. I think I only have a hand full of pictures. It was a great winter beater until I popped a turbo.

    The hatch is at the body shop right now getting fixed and retinted.

    It definitely made me appreciate wagons a whole lot more.

        send me a message when you want to sell it. we'll see how long my current e91 hangs out for. b5s4 is always an itch i wanted to scratch and i don't need to make crazy power (or want to, for that matter - i'm getting old)

            Oh, fuq- I've been snooping around for an E34 wagon, because dadmobile.

            THAT is the ultimate LS1 repository.

            I suppose tubbing it would be going too far?

              That would be a fun swap. Manual or automatic? Would be the perfect car to integrate all the ancillary stuff. A/C, cruise, P/S, etc

                      Core support is boned, but I still have the front half of an e30 (from my trailer build) that I can rob the core support from.

                      Full ranch hand with diamond plate and everything!

                      Realistically, the bumper is still straight. Just the mounts are tweaked. V2 I'll brace the bottom against the frame rails so it's more than just two attachment points. Maybe run a brace from the corner back to the frame as well. Tire clearance will determine that. I'm trying for more lift this time

                        Why'd you do that?
                        It looked better before.

                        Good excuse to go full RooBar, though.

                              Regional PNW... I'm in the Tri-Cities if we get to be included with the more common regions of Seattle or Portland. Big cars and coffee coming up this weekend in Pasco, if by any chance there are other locals in this thread.
