M50 isn't worth it.

It's a lot of work to do, for not much extra power. It's cheaper to go the S50/S51/S52 route, as you'll start with more power (you'd spend a lot of money on an M50 to get it to those levels).

I got one by AutoLoc from eBay for around $40. Make sure you get the negative trigger one. Installation is pretty easy, you just find the lock signal wires (under the driver's kick panel, or in the...

I buy a lot of stuff from eap4parts.com -- they sell brake replacement kits. You pick and choose your pads & rotors, and they price the kit out for you. Very competitive prices, no overseas...

Thumbs down Don't waste your time with the air filter.

The chip is fun; it lets you rev higher and removes the top speed governor. Idle speed is as low as it can go smoothly (it learns over time). Feels a little more punchy in the powerband. (I have...

If you have the OBC that calculates gas milage and all that, then what you need is the OBC light bar. www.bavauto.com sells it for about $25, your local dealer will be somewhere around that price...

It's just the fun factor. They're like go-karts. They handle great, and if you start to lose control it's VERY easy to recover.

I like mine because it's the perfect mix of electrical and...

Will EAP4PARTS.COM shocks fit my E30?

Some E30's came with 51mm strut housing, some came with 45mm. I have a 1991 325i and I'm about to buy some shocks. The ones from EAP4PARTS.COM say they need a 51mm strut housing and I have no idea...

Indeed they did not.

Yeah, you should look up the VIN (google "bmw vin decoder") and see what the production info is. There was no 1991 325is but there was a beefed up sport package for the 1991 325i available. Look...

Basically, the general concensus is this: Driving fast is to be expected, but close-calls are intollerable.
