  1. Today
  2. Hello, I am searching for a clutch alignment tool that I may purchase or borrow for that matter. I know I can just order one online but was trying to find one for tomorrow so I can finish up my wagon project. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
  3. Yesterday
  4. 60k miles Automatic $9000 for WIBIMMERS members. $75 finders fee if you find a buyer. https://milwaukee.craigslist.org/cto/d/new-berlin-2008-bmw-335i-sedan-low-miles/7103588929.html
  5. I’ve loaded many an e30 onto uhaul trailers. Just get the tongue as high as you can and you’ll be ok
  6. Gotcha, If anything you can load the trailer from a curb to level out the ramps or build some small ramps out of 2x6's.

    I still love that N54 torque curve. After having the S54 its much more apparent how much the stock turbos Run out of breath up top on the N54
  8. MVP's June 6th-7th Road America weekend is nearly 80% full. On-line registration is available for all MVP track events at: On-Line Registration: http://www.mvptracktime.com/id92.html I hope to see my fellow track fanatics at the race track soon. Feff
  9. Well since it snowed today, I’m sure the city salted so this will be staying parked for a bit. Gives me time to finish some crap. Sill plate clips showed up. Posting this here so I have the right PN for when I need to remove my sill plates for some dumb reason and break all the clips again
  10. AAA helped when I blew apart my axle at a WIBimmers meet. They also helped on the way back from Road America when the trailer tires decided to fuck off into a low-earth orbit.
  11. Looks good Big fan of properly matched lowering springs on modern cars. Convinced gf to go that route on her current evo x, drives a million times nicer than her last evo x that was on OTS fortune coil overs.

    That's it? Dat der tree turty 5'll do 130 in first from a roll! Getting ready for race wars I see...
  13. I first signed up for AAA the day I bought my non driving e30 vert, they asked no questions about "pre existing conditions" when I called for a tow a few hours later.
  14. Saved me last fall when my fuelpump went out in my E36. And saved @DSMDane at road america last year when his ECU blew up. Although it didn't quite get him home and they wouldn't pick his car up from the racetrack either. Ended up costing over 500$? if I remember correctly. But it would have been more if it wasn't for AAA.
  15. AAA is great, 4 tows a year up Thew will tow to your home or any shop. Not always fast to get there but oh well.

    "Allegedly" Also be careful with that jack if you should ever need it.
  17. Got a garden sprayer that I’ll be using for just that!
  18. If I am not able to get it through my insurance and just call for a tow with a flatbed. I appreciate it. The only real issue with towing the car is finding the right trailer for it. I am able to use my parents to tow the car, it's just getting a hold of low car friendly trailer that isn't a dolly.

    This week: -Acquired an spare tire kit -Detailing a 335i to post it for sale for my father in law -Purchased and cancelled an order for a muffler because I just cannot bring myself to be loud/open pandoras box chasing the right combination of resonators to make an S54 exhaust sound nice -4th gear is allegedly good for a tick over 130 -Incorrectly used the word “an”
  20. Social distance yourself in a bicycle trailer. You can borrow mine after i get towed around town by Joe
  21. Most excellent! I think I’m ready to redeem my test drive coupon now 😂
  22. I can always help to around town with my suburban too if needed, just need a trailer or dolly. The body shop in Greenville usually has at least one u-haul trailer.
  23. Last week
  24. If you buy AAA they have 3 free tows a year for what 90$ a year? But you need a week for it to go into effect.
  25. Well, after a long hiatus, the car will be finally getting some attention again. Here's your dumb fuck move of the day(well, 5 months ago now). After pulling the JOMs off the Calypso car in preparation to swap them onto the red car, I broke the oil pan. In my haste I jacked the car up by the oil pan instead of the subframe. I know, stupid, I just completely over looked this and put the jack on at nearest flat spot I found to put the jack on when it went under the car. Fast forward to now, I contacted Auto Clinic in Neenah, the place where the previous owner had the car maintained the entirety of her ownership. To add to that, the two mechanics that have worked on the car the entire time she has owned it still work there. And on top of that, the one guy is also an E30 guy(wanted to buy this car as well). I would normally do this job on my own, but dropping a subframe to replace the oil pan on the floor, on jackstands, with the motor suspended in the air above just sounded like a better idea to pay someone to do it. I've talked to this guy on a couple of occasions and had gotten a quote on the labor to do the job(will be supplying the pan myself, thanks @patsbimmer1) and was very pleased at the price I was quoted for the work. Just glad I can have the car worked on at a business that knows the car and has people who knows the cars. To conclude this long winded post, I'm hoping to trailer the car over to them next week at sometime. Either dolly it and take backroads or have my insurance flatbed the car( @ChrisO hopefully no issues). Helps to be friends with a guy who rents them to me after hours for a "discount". I just want it to be ready for when the weather starts be nice on a regular basis. I'm stupid.
