Yeah, a hitch is an option. I'm just not a fan of the look of it. I can fit one bike inside the car (maybe 2 with the pass seat out), so I'll probably just do that for now.


Also, somebody might be coming today to take the ZF transmission off my hands for $400. So I'll have made $100 and and a UUC EVO3.

This is a pretty interesting SC kit. It's expensive compared to the centrifugal blower kits, but the Roots style blower could make it worth the extra $$$$$$$$$$. In the current issue of Roundel (November '12 pg. 8) a member wrote in about this kit installed in his car.

It's growing on me.... I think I could change the front some how. But damn, it drives nice.



Yes. Turkey has triptaphan (sp?) which makes you tired. At least I think...

I can get used to facelift E90s, the pre facelift are just too hideous for me though.

And yes, tryptophan is actually in several foods and it does make you a little sleepy.

That's why I'd go for the receiver style. When the draw bar is removed the receiver is tucked up under the rear valance pretty well.

What's "overpowered"? I'm not familiar with that term.

They'd have to strip the interiors, it would be very distracting having various bits and pieces of the interior falling off over every bump.

I think it'd be cool to bring a Rally e36 to a meet. I mean slamming your car is all the rage as late. Show up with a lifted mud covered car and park next to a stanced clean car. I bet you it'd get alot of attention

Bummed. Was thinking a Euro plate would look hot behind the rear plate on the E38, just looked at a pic and realized the E38 trunk lid doesn't have room for it. .
