If an E36 is clean and has documented maintenance and upkeep, they can and often do sell for more than the online calculators (e.g., KBB, NADA, Edmunds, etc.) indicate, especially if they have a...

Beautiful 323is! You are the kind of owner that we wish all BMW owners were like - meticulous and devoted to upkeep. It just goes to show that if you take care of a car, it will reward the owners...

I bet that engine makes her pretty quick, though. My 328 doesn't feel slow, and you have a few hundred pounds less weight.

Did you use assembly lube when putting the engine back together? And what kind of oil are you using for break-in?

Cool Abarth, Ed! Seems like it would be a lot of fun, and I really like the stock exhausts they put on those. They're surprisingly loud for OEM.

That is an awesome Mustang! Which suspension did your friend put in it?



Hmmm... I have to run out the door, but I like this thought experiment. More to come later.

Where are you getting your info from? Don't waste your money buying slotted rotors. Blanks work just as well and are cheaper and easier on pads. Also, you know which pads I recommend (Performance...

Yes, that's what I'm assuming. Although I can't imagine why they thought it was necessary. Even though the convertibles weigh something like 400lbs more than the coupes & sedans, it's not like...

Yep. Also, due to increased hygroscopic properties, I can't say that I'd recommend using Super Blue or Type 200 brake fluid unless you plan to flush it annually. I use it in my car, but I perform a...

Franklyn, I love my Performance Friction Z-Rated pads. Lower dust than OEM, better stopping power, usable in autocross and HPDE settings, and always quiet.

Actually, the stock 328 sway bar is in fact thicker than the M3 sway bar. So if you use the M3 sway bar mounting points with a non-M bar, you have more roll stiffness than an M3. It's what I have...

Yeah, that car is awesome. I don't think they're the first to stuff an S65 into a 1'er, but I could be wrong. The exhaust note also isn't tuned exactly to my liking, but overall the car is sweet.

Yeah, I didn't replace mine because I tested it and it's working fine. And on hot days when stuck in traffic, I can tell when it has engaged and the engine sounds like it's sucking a lot of air.
