  1. the 13"s look like you mean business, in a track car way. ๐Ÿ‘
  2. pb blaster, heating, prying, cursing, etc etc. i'd go spray em right now if you can. this writeup describes and has good pictures of what youll run into. there is a metal ferule sleeved into a metal pipe that is part of the chassis and rust likes to hold them together. https://www.e30zone.net/e30wiki/index.php/Handbrake
  3. long roof-line and terrible proportions look like a kia, mazda, honda...etc i haven't been a fan of any new BMW for a while now, this is just more noise. marketing will spin this as a great thing and get them sold, somehow. FWD has its efficiencies in fuel consumption and manufacturing costs, it was only a matter of time.
  4. if the cables housing are badly stuck at the hub, they are probably stuck at the body, too, so be ready for that. if you're dropping the subframe, its a definitely good "while youre in there" item, despite the hassle.
  5. don't worry, Zach's TI was drowning yours out. ironic how the guy who welds for a living has the only unwelded exhaust in the group. ๐Ÿ˜‚
  6. +1 this was a great time. nice to put faces to some new people as well! thanks, TJ and sweet barn. get rid of those bats so we can park some cars in there for sweet pictures.
  7. +1 to finding bolts in the pan its a super easy job on this motor though, only annoying bit was removal of the super baked-on paper gasket.' car looked great lowered on the BCs this weekend!
  8. yeah, wait, someone 6-speed swapped an m50? ๐Ÿคช
  9. makes sense now. ad says from a Bentley Mulsanne, which when I looked it up started production in 2010 and has 500hp. the engine is really from an 1980s Bentley Mulsanne Turbo, which unsurprisingly only has 330hp.
  10. the 6.75l Bentley motor makes 500hp in stock form. how did they manage only 330hp?
  11. ๐Ÿคธโ€โ™‚๏ธ and thanks for the advice on the fluid change and drain plugs. in all my DIYing, i've never drilled/tapped a hole so I'll be sure to practice first. volvo parts are as definitely as expensive as BMW stuff, so I'd prefer to keep it unbroken. did you add a drain plug like so: https://www.amazon.com/Stainless-Plug-replacement-60328-98B-60328-98A/dp/B006WNPZTK/ref=pd_sbs_263_img_2/140-3274792-3087540?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B006WNPZTK&pd_rd_r=36ed3cc1-c717-4680-b48e-b963abea1d9a&pd_rd_w=F4HeN&pd_rd_wg=prqZr&pf_rd_p=5cfcfe89-300f-47d2-b1ad-a4e27203a02a&pf_rd_r=4DC1CCJ155K3Z1BKW6A5&psc=1&refRID=4DC1CCJ155K3Z1BKW6A5 i did really want a P2R, but i discovered a v50 2.5t with a stage 1 tune is the same power/weight and you avoid most of the expensive "R" parts.
  12. All I've had is RWD BMWs, so yes. Its Gen II Haldex on an 05 v50 - electronically controlled clutch, FWD only until it its activated by wheelspin. Is an obviously inferior system compared to other manufacturers from an offroad or extreme performance perspective, but its perfect for snowy roads. It has no traction control, which makes me so happy tack sjรคlv!
