    The first month I owned my car, I didn't have a system. I really enjoyed the sound of the M50, but it got kinda boring after a while, so I stole the system out of my E28 (but without a sub/amp) and that made it better, particularly with my Boston Acoustics 6x9's. I waited til i had some more time to pull the carpet up and run my wires etc for the amp, I think it was probably a few weeks or so. I wished I had done it sooner!

      @2man now that you see how nice having a sub is, get the GAS groupon and start saving for a real box.

                I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - VICTORIOUS.

                I stuck it out after Phil was nice enough to get me the rest of the parts that I needed. Got back in the swing at 5pm & at 11:23pm Haruko Fired Right Up :up:

                I have an idle/choke issue, that I believe has to deal with that throttle cable Keith (which I'll call you about later today), but first try I fu*king one shot that car with the help of you guys (Phil / Keith / Austin) & he started up. I just wanted to hear him start once before calling it a night & I got just that.

                Side Note: Phil, keep an Alternator around from time to time, I may need one sooner than later since Lonnie nearly fried mine & Keith, thanks so much for writing the Positive symbol on the windshield, it saved the car from literally torching the barn down. Remember folks, on BMW's black = POS + not NEG - which my roommate found out the hard way.

                /end rant I'm off to bed now, before trying to see if Haruko moves tomorrow.

                    That's awesome Jay! Doing an i motor and 5 speed swap is no easy task, especially on your first e30.
                    Only other picture I took.

                        I like the expression on Phil's face.

                          I'm going to get the monoblocks for the vert and the 3pc for the E21. But, I'd like to switch them back and forth on a whim.

                          Mmmmm, wheels!





                          Different, but match just as much as my E21 and E30 do. Hope it looks as good in person as it does in my head.

                          Now it's a race to make this happen before my daughter is born. Otherwise it'll quickly take a back seat for a couple years (decade).
                          Yeah the 16x9 old style. Love them. So hard to find. I like the 3 piece too but not for the price they go for.

                            Where does one find the cup holder for a husco arm rest? Just the cup holder part not the whole thing

                                I know Tunershop had both the 7.5x16 and the 9x16. The product photos show both dished and poked styles. Confusing. Especially since I'd want a staggered set.
