    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?

            now, sometimes I just mess with people. It's more entertaining that way. george graves

              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
