    Secret Santa 2019!

    Assignments to be made later this week
  3. Yesterday
  4. I'd be willing to bet it was RevShift lol
  5. I've got a 4.10 open differential, small case, I pulled from my 1991 318is. Rough guess is 250-260k on it when pulled in March 2018 for a lower mileage LSD. Drivers output shaft seal leaks, and I've noticed a bit of input shaft noise since it's been sitting. Redline 75/90 used since 2012 when I bought the car, and new bushing in 2016. Kept this thinking that I would just take apart and rebuild as a learning process but that hasn't happened. Not sure what this is worth. $60 obo?
  6. Last week
  7. I'll pop some 5mm spacers on the rear to get it a little better stance.
  8. I almost got kicked out of the car at lunch today for making fun of Guns 'n Roses. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Facts nearly lost to history: Two of Jefferson Airplane's biggest hits, "White Rabbit" and "Somebody to Love" were actually songs that Grace Slick "carried with her" (aka lifted) from her previous band The Great Society.
  9. Good thing the timing belt was changed on that 335i... I'm sure that was an expensive service job....
  10. 16/18k coilovers dear lord my back hurts just thinking about those rates combined with stretchy tires.
  11. I use FCP whenever possible. They just don't have all of the o-rings. RM European actually has the o-rings and the parts I'm looking for a little cheaper than FCP this time. With that said, I would spend a few more dollars to still use FCP if they had the o-rings.
  12. I've used both and the transactions were decent. Haven't dealt with Pelican since they were bought by ECS though (not because of that, just haven't as FCP has been my go to lately). If either sells a kit with the exactly correct O-ring sizes, I'd much prefer to use those in my opinion.
  13. If you have a realoem part number search the FCP site by number rather than by car. Sometimes stuff isn't cross listed. You can also call. I've used Pelican in the past without issue. Typically would take longer to ship given west coast location. They were bought by ECS in 2017. I've also used Autohaus AZ in the past for a few things but have not dealt with them for a long while.
  14. Anyone have recommendations for best place to get AC o-rings? FCP doesn't carry all of them. AutohausAZ and Pelican Parts do (as well as a couple other things I was going to get) but I have not shopped through either of those stores before. Amazon sells some o-ring kits, but BMW says I need a 7.65 mm o-ring and the kit has a 7.8 mm o-ring, I need a 11.1 mm o-ring and the kit has an 11 mm o-ring, or I need a 17.12 mm o ring and the kit has a 17 mm o ring. I don't know if that's a big deal or if the o-ring would still work.
  15. I guess you are just going to have to click on each one cuz im lazy. https://chicago.craigslist.org/nch/pts/d/evanston-bmw-e46-m3-shifter-rtd/7020534771.html https://chicago.craigslist.org/nch/pts/d/evanston-bmw-e46-m3-roll-bar/7016733183.html https://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/pts/d/batavia-2008-bmw-335i/7018617025.html https://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/cto/d/downers-grove-1992-bmw-318i-convertible/7020304233.html https://chicago.craigslist.org/sox/pts/d/urbana-2002-bmw-525it-wagon-e39/7017168123.html
  16. This is mostly likely what happened.
  17. Super clean E12 https://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/cto/d/lockport-1978-bmw-530i-e12-first-5/7012429409.html
  18. I just looked at this too. 1,018 hours, or a little over 42 full days. Damn. Guess I’m getting my money’s worth on Apple Music.
  19. Last night the tracking randomly updated that the package was accepted at the USPS facility. I would love to know if USPS messed up and or if Rev never actually shipped it and sent it off to USPS last night.
  20. I've listened to 774 hours of music so far this year. Didn't think that was a lot originally, but it's over a month of listening to music.
  21. Our UPS driver at work likes to do music trivia with our materials team. On tuesday he played "it's my life" by talk talk on his phone and gave them a multiple choice to guess who it was by. Our materials team isn't so musically inclined, so no one got it right. The he asked "What 90's band covered this song". Somehow, I managed to pull this one out of my ass. Even though I've heard both versions, I don't think I've ever realized that the No Doubt version was a cover... Unrelated? I've recently been digging into some early punk/goth stuff. Like the dance/ska tunes shown above, it's often dominated melodically by the bass line as opposed to the guitar parts...
  22. This is nothing new of Revshift, it has been this way since they started. You look up any thread about them and it is the same story. They always make it to you, just never in a timely manner.
  23. I would love to develop my own polyurethane bushing brand.
  24. Apparently no one is in the office today to take a phone call. So, another day without knowing what's going on with it. I read through their google reviews and someone a few months ago dealt with the exact same thing. I mean, they have a ton of positive reviews and almost every online shop sells their stuff. So I'm not doubting that 99.9% of the time they get things out quickly and on time, but damn, at least pretend to give a shit. I would have assumed that after two weeks of no update on it, they would have already sent me something. But at three weeks they're still "trying to figure it out". Shit's broken, send me new ones so I can put my car back together. On the up-side, my brake lines were delivered today.
  25. Just checking in to see if he called back or is still on hold with USPS..... 🤣 I would demand a discount. or partial refund. Tell him the car is in the shop stuck on the lift and is getting charged a storage fee.
