I think I saw it/heard it at Rosemont Tire today!! (Main Line PA)
Yeah, until I can con someone into going halfsies on a dedicated race car with me, I’ll be doing all my own maintenance on my DD/HPDE car. The occasional friend is around to help, but they usually just drink beer and tell me all the things I’m doing wrong. haha
I’m just gonna pick up a vacuum kit from Harbor Freight so I can do it myself. My guess is that she won’t like the idea of having any role/responsibility in my safety on track tomorrow. lol
I’ll likely just ask her to hand me tools. Maybe I can get her to fill the transmission, but I’m guessing the smell will scare her…
I’ll be putting Motul 300 in both the trans and diff. Should be a good time. I even conned my girlfriend into agreeing to help me out tonight. >:)
In all reality, she won’t get dirty at all. lol
M3 bumper allowed in SE46?
That’s the plan!
Gotta do pads and brake/trans/diff fluid when I get home tonight.
Track days all weekend with Windy City BMW for me!
Oh man - I hear you. Mine were a total pain to remove too.
There’s a white one parked outside a shop near my house. I should get a pic. Poor thing hasn’t moved in weeks.
Absolutely. That is a Mercedes W111, the second car that might be considered an “S-Class”.
Mercedes W112. Appropriately nicknamed the fintail
I still love that it’s one of the very top results of an “E90 M3" Google search.
Hahaha - he might roll some coal right into your stocking.
Have I seriously lost my mind? Spending tens of dollars on a heavily depreciated AMG without looking at it or test-driving it first? Would I forever be stuck in hell dealing with a car that will soon be worth 25 cents yet cost me thousands of dollars to just replace the alternator?

Thanks for the feedback. Its crazy how this car is truly an obtainable dream car. Yes I do have plans to track it a few times but not before I do a few more upgrades (mainly brake upgrades as you pointed out). When its all said and done though, I cant wait to really stretch its legs and show me what this bad boy can…
Drooled over this car growing up, and thought I would never be able to get myself in a situation where I would be able to get one.
Hey look! A good picture of black wells! May be an internet first...
Before I get started, let me set something out. I’m Italian, educated (ha!) in the UK, I’m going to use words and spelling that will probably irritate you a great deal, please accept my apologies to begin with.
