When I say vented rotors, I'm not talking about cross drilled. OEM BMW solid rotors for the 1.9 can be had for $20 per pair from Bimmerworld. I'll probably just get those and go with some Hawk HPS...

I installed a 3.73 LSD from an E30 325is. I also installed the axles from the 325. It made a big difference in the car. The only downside is the high revs at highway speed. Besides that it's a...

I drove my Z3 as a daily driver for over four years. It's impractical as hell, but I loved every minute of it. Before I got the Z3, I had another two seater, so it wasn't a big adjustment.

Not for me it wasn't. I'll get around to doing the reverse wire at some point, but for now it works fine without it.
