Probably not.. I'd just do the list of "regular" mods and probably call it a day.. But I'm keeping the e30 for a while now so that's out of the picture lol

I meant to put lots of camber...

But generally, I like things straight. It makes me cringe when I see something that doesn't line up.

I know what you mean. There is definitely a point of going too far. I would love to get mine to air out with less negative camber.

My Dad's 1994 E36 Convertible. R.I.P

I recently inherited my father 1994 BMW E36 Convertible. We brought it home this weekend. All my husband did was wash the car and vacuum the inside. The car was bought new in 1994 18 years ago. My Dad logged in ~24K miles on it. The car was garaged except when he drove it. Probably never spent more then 2 hours in the elements for more then 2-3 hours at anyone time. I hope these pictures provides you a glimpse into the way my loving father took care of his car. It's probably this one of nicest lowest mileage 1994 E36 in the country. I feel honored to own it and will keep it my family forever.

Yup. The turnout was pretty good. Even a turbo E30 and sweeeeet track-prepped E24 M6, among the hordes of cool muscle cars.

You mean the part where you go onto the grass? Yeah, it was pretty tight for me. My exhaust scraped a bit. You could probably get in with a few thin pieces of wood.
