  1. my wrench always fit those flats on the sway bar arms. but i know that different brands have different thicknesses. if you need a modified 22mm (7/8") wrench for the bolts on the upper control arms, let me know Ill ship mine to you. like your modified tool, after modifying it for the e34 i've never used it again
  2. bump for price drop. my made up price was too high!
  3. SOLD! Posted this elsewhere on the internets, figured I'd post here as well. Rare e34 m5 shifter surround Black (schwarz) Original BMW part #51162237705 Has cutout for ACS console cars These shift surrounds have been NLA for some time now, and are very hard to find. It is finished in the same black vinyl that your e34s console/dash is made of for a perfect match. It has the cut out for the ACS button console found in most non-m5 cars. The pocket dividers work amazingly to keep your phone/stuff from sliding around the shifter area. I've attached photos of it mounted in my previous e34 touring. Considering I cannot find a single one for sale on the internets, the price is both fair and totally made-up. $150
  4. whoever starts repro'ing dumb plastic bmw clips that always break gets my business
  5. this is always what i've pictured

    I tried some of these adjustments. I even lost some weight, which i assumed would help, but I was still having the issue on long rides. i could have probably got a different, less aggressive bike or a big ass comfy seat, but both would defeat the point of riding quickly for exercise. after that amount of tinkering, reading about long term issues, and not really being 'in love' with biking, I threw in the towel and started running again for exercise LOL

    i got into biking for a hot second because my late wife was into biking. i completely rebuilt/restored/modified three bikes, all of which I got for free. (old bikes people were giving away) some old chinese steel frame knock-off thing for her to ride. (blue one) a schwinn twinn that i inherited from my grandparents for us both to ride (yellow one) a cheap mongoose hybrid steel frame from the 90s that i turned into a cyclocross style bike. (couldnt find a picture) i stopped riding because of numb feet and threat of personal harm to man bits. i do really enjoy it though, and thought cyclocross might become a hobby.
  8. very much agree that the current administration is undermining democracy. its very disheartening. i have no problems with the losing side using due process to check the election results. important things should be double checked. recount it, sure. but now the courts (which had a representation of democratic and republican judges) and election officials have all confirmed the results in that process. you have to accept it. the supreme court was stacked by the current administration and even they are confirming this is a baseless claim, with no facts to support it. if you don't, you didn't learn how to lose in life, you're acting entitled and so you cry. possibly you don't have enough education to have learned critical thinking so you scream conspiracy. you might also be standing up for you side so you don't lose face which makes you gutless and a sheep (like many of the republican officials) trump has jedi mind-tricked his followers to believe everything thing he says. i really wonder if there is a limit to that. if Trump tweeted tomorrow "I am the real Savior" I feel like his supporters might open some new churches or say Christianity is a hoax.
  9. if you build a stadium in a toilet bowl, even if its made of solid gold, you still have to wade through shit to get to it. go pack go!
  10. i had to look up buffalo check i stand by my ugly comment 😅
  11. logged in to BaT read first comment: "I hereby attest to telling my friend @Achman that, due to my being deep in a “House” marathon (“everybody lies”), it would be funny if I ended the story that way even though I DID believe him, and that he DID actually say “I’ll take one for the team.” :^)" what? yup, business as usual with the useless posts and trolls. .
  12. alternate idea below. all the light, all the privacy, no ugly curtains. https://www.amazon.com/RABBITGOO-Privacy-Frosted-Adhesive-Bathroom/dp/B01MTA00AX/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=window+film+frosted&qid=1607452388&s=home-garden&sr=1-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEzR1VSM0NLQlgwWE9aJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMzAxNDgzMks4TERLQUY1MzBGRyZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNDgxMzU4REE5MFRMVDg4Njcmd2lkZ2V0TmFtZT1zcF9hdGYmYWN0aW9uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl also a warning: that door is just about the most insecure door you could have. glass panes near the door handle are a target for thieves. someone can in that door in about 2 seconds. i installed sheet of lexan on the inside of a door like this in the past because it is nearly shatter/impact proof. the deadbolt is also in a very narrow piece of wood since the glass lite is right next to it. it could easily be kicked in without reinforcement.
  13. yeah, just the v50 for now. but the lady's vehicle is due for an upgrade soon, and i've helped sway her to something more enthusiast friendly, such as a wrangler, yota FJ, etc. i certainly believe a hoard is not needed to enjoy cars, but i also would probably have a hoard if the resources were available.
