Need help on a decision. New coilovers and barely scrape by for 2 weeks? No coilovers and be fine for 2 weeks?

Which is better?

Haha did I affect this decision?
Barely scraping by for 2 weeks isnt bad but then again waiting another 2 weeks isnt long either.

I would go with barely scraping by haa

Anyone interested in an auto dimming, homelink and compass integrated mirror from an e90?

It can be retrofitted in the e36 with the pigtail from the dealer which is 30-40 bucks I can't remember. I did this in my old e36 and loved it.

Want 150 shipped for it to e36'ers! Anywhere else they're going for at least 200 bucks.

of course this is the bestest sub-forum...who else brought stealthy tacos to bimmierfest east??


we've got teh dramas, and make more sense than the poly sci forum. more interesting stuffs than the regular ot thread, and, as a result, many of the *other* sub-forums now have their own ot thread.

and sometimes we actually *do* manage to get our cars fixt and such.

we're also very open to non e36 owners, as evident by chad's presence....

though when you do trade/sell make sure it's for something equally or greater fun than an E36

Looks like I was too late to make a Chad's milkshake joke. Turns out I didn't take any photos of that crap. I think I got some of it on my shirt. Better throw it out.


Ryan, I hope they find out what really happened. It does help get some closure.
