Yep! So I get to wake up uber early tomorrow and rush to get them on before work tomorrow afternoon. Which I'm strangely excited about; getting them going, not getting up early or work.

A'cause I text and e-mail Chad and Ken all the time, so they have insider information. It's ok, if everything goes as planned (don't hold your breath...this *is* Ashlyn we're talking about here...) I'll have pictures by this weekend.

today im mailing them back so they can send me sedan ones, Im hoping they will arrive before saturday (big bmw bbq on long island) but im doubtfull.
She looks great! Love the wheels! I don't think I've seen pics of yours in a while, but I likes! It's ok, my corner light is held in by creative use of zip ties and wires and I still have to smoosh in back in place rather often.


In other news, I've come to the conclusion that Ashlyn is brilliantrot instead of Unknown- or hellrot. MJ's supercharged one is definitely Hellrot and in some light you can tell the difference. Ashlyn is slightly more orangeyer. I'd repaint her Hellrot but....yeah, the hood.

Looks great Joe!

Btw out of the blue Brittany goes "Who's Joe Sterling?" I'm like huh? Your Facebook comment threw her off

Amber, that's awesome, can't wait!

I still like like the idea that Ashlyn is Unknownrot. You should get a color tag sticker with it and put it on the strut tower!

Me too!!!! Trust me.... meeeeeee tooooooooo......!

Actually, I quite agree. Brilliantrot just sounds too boring. I much prefer Unknownrot. Know any places that make custom stickers? It'd probably be cheaper online.

It really is. Kills me that my boyfriend's hellrot is never washed, has peeling clearcoat all on the hood, roof, and trunk deck, Ashlyn has fresh coats of damned expensive carnuba wax and is washed and polished regularly, yet MJ's has a deeper gloss to it because of the slight difference in the reds. Grrrr. I hate that his has a blower too, but that's beside the point.

Haha I think I'll tell MJ that in my usual attempts to get him to put the sc on Ashlyn instead of his. We'll see what he has to say to *that*!

Okie dokie will do, but remember this is me, I'm notoriously lazy and may just end up drawing it on there myself.

Gah I wish I could fast forward to Thursday. Hopefully we're busy tonight so it goes fast.... but not so busy that I have to stay late. So looking forward to tomorrow and Thursday even more. It's really freaking difficult to skirt around what I'm doing in these comments you know. Sheesh.

He's interested in speed not looks, whereas I like the whole package. The guy who had the Rot Rocket before treated it like poo though... blew up the s50 that was in it by spraying too much, then let it sit with the windows down for a couple months, so that tells you what condition the paint is in. I flat out refused to ride in it until I cleaned the interior for him, it was that nasty. He's having so many problems with the Rocket cause of what his friend did to it. Just had a rear shock smash through the tower too btw, and before that had to change the diff bolt because DJ BENT it with his antics and slipshod repairs.

So yeah..... he won't even help me wash Ashlyn OR wash his cars at the same time. Kills me that I'm still NA now since she's in soooooo much better shape. His M3 is Dakar....and about 10 different shades of it too. Not to mention keeps having parts stolen/sold off of it without MJ's knowledge while it's sitting at his uncle's shop waiting on the turbo motor to be built and put in.

I got my M3 calipers in the mail today . Now I just need to degrease them, decide what color to paint them, paint them, get new rotors, pads, and stainless steel lines, and then install them. Any suggestions on color?, my options are probably red, silver, or black, since those are the colors Advance/ Autozone carry in stock.

Also, just did the Z3 steering rack mod, see the thread I'm about to post for details and the pictures I took in the process. (I didn't take that many pictures on account of I didn't want to touch my phone after my hands got covered in road grime.

Every time I see stuff like that, I think to myself: it would cost 1/2 as much to get twice as much power by doing an LS swap.

Yeah, I agree. I'm all for people going strange routes to achieve the results they're after, even if the route they take isn't the most sensible.

Espicially since the M4x seems to be the red headded step child of the BMW world, its the "economy" motor and not many "want" a 318.

Its a sweet project, sad the thread ends with alot of questions left...
