Eh, we're just bench racing here and I haven't seen an A/B comparison of the two on the track but the US E36 M3 is so anemic that it barely has an acceleration advantage over an RX8 based on the...

This. And since an M42 convertible is unlikely to ever be a valuable variant of the car, you're not sacrificing "all original" collectible value by ditching the M42 for an M20.

Looks like thinwall junk, but even the good stuff (my rapid spool header) cracked in multiple places, so seems like you're screwed no matter what you choose :dontknow:

Barely audible under most driving conditions, inaudible at highway speeds, so probably a non-issue for all but the most noise-sensitive drivers. Well worth the immense improvement in rear end feel...

Maybe faster than a the already slow US E36 M3, since the lightness and cornering would be enough to leave the E36 unable to keep up with its small power:weight advantage but there's no way an RX8...

Nice weight drops, keep it up.

For me, radical diet changes are difficult to stay with, I prefer a slow approach since I like to eat. I lift regularly and eat plenty of protein and vegetables...

I've found another local E30 that makes mine look like it belongs in a barret jackson auction.

I've been driving a car with a full set of solid UHMW bushings in the rear for several years now and plenty of E30 owners have ridden in my car, none of them have remarked that it vibrates....

Wankels are obsolete. Fuel efficiency and emissions are too much of a concern in the post 1980s world, nobody with any sense wants a 300hp car that gets Corvette gas mileage and burns oil like an...

Just get a poly or UHMW bushing, it's not like the diff mount bushing will squeak like poly TAB or CABs.

You'd rethink that if you drove a new Corolla. Just because it's a hatchback with a manual doesn't mean it will be fun or good in any way, Toyota has sucked all possibility of fun out of the Corolla,...

The 1980s 'unintended acceleration' debacle bears no relationship to the rarity of pre 1980s audis. I have seen a couple of 1980s audis around, but I have never seen one from an earlier period. Audis...

Same amount of ugly, 1,000lb more weight. No thanks on either count. Toyota/Lexus doesn't currently make a single good looking car, the current Lexus design scheme seems to be "make it huge and...

That's for sure. I've never even seen one. Why is it old Audis are so hard to find? Low production numbers or were they just junk with a super high rate of attrition?

Sounds like crap, it's possible for the wires to touch the tires if they're unplugged and swinging around but the sensors are mounted to the spindle. The parts are probably $150/each or less from a...

Same specifications, my wheels and tires stick out a little bit. Fender roll absolutely necessary, and the lower it is the worse the rubbing issues will be.
