I'm thinking the normal stuff like 3.5" hfm, intake, catback, maybe injectors, and a chip at the end.

I really want a lightweight fly and m5 clutch, but my clutch is in good shape and i'm not going to tear it apart for fun............

I just remember how fast your car spools compared to mine....i'm pretty sure thats the fly?

I mean my is still faster than the 325, but it could be faster.

Douche.

No, if I can get the Merc to run halfway decent for more than 2 weeks I actually really like it for a commuter car. Buuuuuut: In the future I'm looking at picking up an E36 on the cheap for a track car.

LOL the thought crosses my mind now and then.

There's a chance I may be moving to somewhere with space for a project car in the future, so we'll see what happens. I'm sure it won't be an M though if I do get anything.


As for the Merc, it's not a half bad little car really, especially since my commute may be getting a LOOOOT longer soon. I'm seriously having some problems with it though, tempted to start a thread on here since the MB forum doesn't have that much in technical advice.

Do it. We all like to see what is going on in the life of Chad.

As for the e36, just spend the 1-2 grand more and get an ///m.......you can get a salvage one if you're going to track it They are getting really cheap these days

it'll be kinda weird if he hops on here and starts posting regularly. I left the stickers(bfest) on mine hoping that the kid I sold it to would.

Haven't seen him yet though

Mine is up to 34 entries after one year of ownership, although to be fair, that's just because I had to get caught up on all the maintenance after buying it. That's the way it goes when buying a used car. I expect the next year of ownership to have far fewer entries.
