Cars rust - all cars, period. Don't let your dreams be crushed just because you're now discovering that cars rust out. As I said before, if you have to, just buy a sub-$1k winter beater and keep...

That Datsun may have been made of steel that wasn't galvanized. 80s Japanese cars were known for rotting out in the blink of an eye.

But regardless, you can't really do anything to prevent rust...

You just need a basic socket and wrench set to replace the suspension in an E36. There are plenty of DIYs online if you search for them. Also, use the Bentley service manual for a guide.

Well, that said, the Getrag boxes are still pretty durable, so I'd definitely look at the linkage first. After 143k miles of shifting, it's going to be pretty worn out. Even the 525i I tended to...

Didn't your car recently receive a diagnosis of terminal rust? I bet some of that had gotten started before you bought it in '08. Seems like much of the time when rust actually becomes visible, it...

That's actually pretty cool, Jesse. I know cursive, just never use it. As such, my cursive totally sucks. My regular handwriting isn't that great, either. It's highly legible, but ugly.
