    Official Vanity Plate Thread

    That's the most "in transition" license plate i've ever seen. I picture the driver taking off every time saying "BUCKLE UP BUCKAROO'S!"

    How to make custom centercaps for your wheels

    Nice job! I did this a few years ago on my e36 with success. Last time I saw these they were still holding up with only a slight amount of yellowing.

    Awesome car videos!

    A buddy and I are shooting for 2020 to get to Goodwood. It's a pilgimage I think I need to make.

    Which M3 is Best M3?

    Touring or not the e39 is the best M5.

    my 330i

    Awesome! It'd be a great car to see on track! Certainly one of the more stylish in a setting like Auto x.

    my 330i

    Makes sense. By track events i'm guessing drift events or do you have timed events planned?

    My New Daily Driver...

    Ahhh gotcha! Well if you need anything let me know. I can get the Ziza full interior LED kits for more than 50% off.

    My New Daily Driver...

    That'll be a nice daily. I like these X5's. I don't think the 3.0 will be a downgrade at all. It'll be nice for you to have an engine that won't spontaneously break! Looks like it's in good shape but the "murdered" look look's ridiculous in my opinion. What color interior does it have?

    Why did you end up dropping the air?

    New build! E90 M3

    I had my first track day in the car today at Blackhawk Farms Raceway and ran in the intermediate group. This is my 4th track day in 3 years and it's amazing how quickly you get to know people by attending these things semi regularly. It's great being able to run with some of the same people year after year and developing a trust on the track. Ok now that that's out of the way, the car. She ran beautifully! Stock brakes, stock suspension and pss tires. The car was perfect. It did what it was supposed to with no surprises. I took it slow for the day to feel the car out. The NA power took some getting used to. Even though the s65 is a supposed torqueless turd I had a low end power that i didnt expect and it was consistent through the power band. Power came on easy and steady. No surging or lag to deal with. It was great. Right off the bat I was running similar times I ran in my 335i but I was way more consistent. My fastest in the 335i was 1:29 and in the M3 I managed a 1:32. I'm pretty happy with that considering it was my first time out with it and i wasn't pushing very hard. The DCT was awesome! It did get a little laggy on up shifts when it got hot but downshifts were excellent. Being able to focus on braking zones was a really nice change. I could put my energy into hitting better lines instead of worrying about my feet. Of course every driver walks away from an event saying "if I just had this item it'd be that much better!". For me I'd like to get the Schroth quick fit harness and a slightly better pad with more bite. These worked and I NEVER had any fade but I'd like the pedal a little more effective sooner. The car does have a little wiggle under heavy braking which led to some but puckering moments but I'm not sure how to fix that yet. The easy answer is coilovers but I'm happy with the ride quality so we'll see if I "fix" that. Now for the video! My go pro only recorded the last 10:25 of each session unbeknownst to me but this was the last and my fastest session.

    New build! E90 M3

    Driving the 6spd was satisfying but I'm excited to give this a try! I'll never say i'm an amazing heel/toe driver but I think I was efficient to the point where I didn't really think about it anymore unless I fucked one up. The paddles are L/- and R/+ so they are different. After driving the f10 550i for 9 days and attempting to use those paddles the DCT paddles feel fantastic lol.
