Literally any BMW model starting with a “3,” so long as it does not also contain a “GT.” Done.
OH HOLY BUTTS I WANT ALL OF THIS. 360 Challenge car for $50k? Brb, selling all possessions.
Oh, the drama! A flat tire has nothing to do with it being on an M5 or any other BMW. Stop hitting stuff.
Good call. I haven’t bought a pressure bleeder because I have a co-owner who usually helps. Makes it easier when you have a second set of hands and the guy doesn’t mind getting antifreeze in his hair.
I asked my fiance to help me bleed the brakes once. Started on the right rear of course. She pumped the pedal like 12 times and said her “leg was tired” and gave up and went inside. I then did the rest of it myself running around the car like an idiot.
S’not an M3 bumper. It’s an M3 “style” bumper from fleaBay and is allowed. No actual M3 parts are allowed. The bumper rule, in particular, is somewhat silly in that regard but I get it. Much easier to just say “no M3 parts” and then make an allowance for “M3 style front bumper.”
New fluids are the best. Except for diff oil. Diff oil smells SO bad.
Hooray!! Have fun!
I only used the RS19s on the street if I had another event scheduled in close proximity so that it was a waste of time to change them. They squeal like a school bus. Cold bite isn’t fantastic, but you can get used to it and be perfectly safe on the street. Congrats on your ZCP!
That’s my problem, too. I bought wheel hub assemblies for the front of my Silverado and I was intending to do them myself. I then thought: self, you have race car projects to tend to, house projects, and you’re busy working during the week at your actual job - just PAY A PROFESSIONAL instead of wasting a full day…
5/7 would watch!
Thanks! I wonder what the market’s like on these puppies. Will google if I get a chance. Busiest Friday I’ve had all year... and all I want to do is learn about an old MB!
That’s my favorite part =)
Glad to hear the family’s well.
I’ve been MIA for a bit (new job). My first login in a couple months and I see this. I think this mofo is going to cross 30k - with NO front page share, ever! (Despite many, many lesser M3 articles hitting the front page - I ain’t mad tho =P) Hope all’s well Dave!
Stef my cousin knows the guy who owned this car, or so he says. Apparently he also has a Veyron and an F40. I guess he had to make room in the garage?
Is this stupid and entirely unnecessary? Yes. Are these guys utter jerks? Without a doubt. Are there situations where this could be legitimately dangerous? Definitely.
Your picture is of a product by Schroth called the “quick fit,” which is a 4-point harness (I believe you can make it 5-point by adding a sub strap) that makes use of a car’s OEM seatbelt attachment points and, importantly, seatbelt pre-tensioners. That product was designed to be used as shown in the picture, and was…
