God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

your thinking bead locks. bead locks are illegal in a ton of places. multi-piece wheels arent illegal anywhere.

ok. but then that brings up a question, way are bead locks illegal, when they hold the bead in place, while multi piece if installed wrong, can send a tire into traffic yet alone the metal shards from the center peice?

never heard of a multi-piece wheel falling apart. they are much stronger then a 1 piece wheel. ive seen 1 piece rotas torn to shreds at the spokes.

another forum -
"I believe that the DOT specifies a few things about wheels for road use and how they must be made to be compliant, and that most beadlocks fail to comply with the minumum requirements on a couple of points. One is the way the tire bead is actually engaged (held) and the other is the bolts that may not be accessable or easily verified to be tight (ie not prevented from coming loose on the highway.) It appears that a couple of manufacturers have designed beadlocks and their manufacturing in such a way that they believe they are compliant with DOT requirements.

It's what I was told by factory tire engineers (Goodyear btw) quite a few years back anyway. They said that the way beadlocks grip the bead of the tire is not only outside the proscribed method/specification, but more importantly the tire itself doesn't like being held that way at highway speed."

well .. i got very bored today.

so i took this boring, dirty oil filter housing cap



slapped it on the lathe



and some time later



what are the gains?function?purpose of what i did ?.. fins were for a little extra cooling in the cap,but i have a nice 19 row aluminum oil cooler and a euro 24v oil filter housing to keep my boosted build cool. the shaved cap has no purpose other then to hold/seal the filter inside the housings.

i also was working on test pieces so i could get my flat tubed euro cooler lines in the housings to -10AN lines like my oil cooler has. id rather not spend $70 on the adapter kit knowing i could make the same parts for about $15. will post pics of that whenever i get serious work done on it. today all you get is the messing around with the ofhc

Anyway, first of the pictures. on the far right is a Hartge E30 fresh out of the paint booth. not sure why it rolls on bottlecaps still though but it looks nice. he was late and i saw it rolling a few cars behind me to the Naval Grounds and thought it was an M3 coz all i could see was the wing!
On the left hand side is my mate Wills car, immaculate condtion, ive never seen a car so well preserved. no faults at all except being M40 Auto
