But i got that strut brace for dirt cheap, so i bolted it onto the strut mounts.
how much did you get it for i see them for like 200+

I recently found a pic of my old E36. My 1995 convertible. My wonderful Bimmer. I cherished that car. Not a very good shot...

I sold the Rover about 2 1/2 years ago Bought a Prius instead. I figure it is saving me around $500-$600 per month in Gas and Insurance. I'm in property management, and drive the 4-door quite a bit for work (the vert is for personal days). I miss the heated steering wheel the most.

And what a mess that car is! I recently spent 4 hours detailing it. Ewww. The inside. I don't know why some people keep their cars such a mess. It would drive me nuts. I did make $5 on the detail, in change that was under the seat though!

Sparco is 1 piece, Steel.

Schnitzer is like 3 piece, aluminum. So Schnitzer is lighter in weight but costs thrice as much.

Sparco recomended by me. simple and solid.

OMG,LOL.

IMO, Ford cars are ugly to begin with. Period.
Detailing/washing/polishing, would not make it any appealing.

But i am jealous that you have an e93 right now. Man those things are fast.
