    The Saga Continues...

    Over the last few months snap had been kicking around the idea of selling his car. Occasionally he would text me and tell me he was serious, naturally I told him to go fly a kite there’s no way he could sell it. However as his texts kept getting more and more serious, so did my interest. As some of you know I sold my first black e30 to stew and I text him basically yearly to buy it back. He always tells me to pound sand which is fair lol. For the last 5 years or so I have been on-and-off looking for a rust free e30, which is annoying. Don’t get me wrong I love my red car and it serves its purpose, but I can only get so many tetanus boosters before my eyes explode Anyways, In an effort to keep the car off the next BMW Facebook page of mouth breathers, I drove done to New Germany with Brooke on June 2 and made the decision to “diversify” my car collection. Upon arriving I was immediately sold. Snap has cared well for the car over the last 8 years and it shows. The paint may be worn and shows its age, but aren’t we all after so many years. What’s important to me is that pretty much every nut/bolt has been touched and mechanically the car is in awesome shape. We took it around for a quick test drive and that sealed the deal even further. Car pulls nicely and is geared fairly tall (for what I’m use to) and it cruises nicely. The drive back home went as expected, although I puckered a few times as the 3” exhaust was hanging fairly low

    @snapsby said he replaced 2/4, also I’m interested if my trouble shooting skills are shit. If I replace it and it still makes noise I’ll replace more lol

    Alright so I always assumed it was passenger rear because that wheel/hub has a tiny touch of play in it - but driving to work this morning and doing some zig zagging I believe it is the front passengers side howling I will still be replacing the left rear anyways because the play bothers me.

    Ordered rear wheel bearing/lock plate/snap ring. Left rear is starting to howl, noticed when I had my windows up on the way to work this morning. Time to bust out the slide hammer and hate myself

    @snap I need to get down to mke so you can experience the fun also, for the 1-2 shift issues I had during the first autox, I just shifted sooner and slower. Seemed to work fine, still annoyed that you can’t ramrod it home. Had the car on re71r and tossed my corbeau in it. Night and day difference. I am going to be rebleeding the brakes and removing some fluid in the process as the reservoir is weeping from the cap

    Black speaker covers were from red car and the shelf I dyed black a couple years ago. Now that you bring this up I also forgot to change out the front speaker covers

    Black interior is so much better than tan (IMO). So today I pulled everything and replaced it with the black interior from the red car. Basically robbed Peter to pay Paul. anyways, obviously as the pics show I didn’t do the carpet because I want to keep driving the car and pulling the carpet and dyeing it sounds like a longer-than-2-hour-affair so it stays for now. At least gave me a chance to vacuum the years of snaps Cheerios out and fix my droopy black door cards lol Currently have the fx1 in as a driver seat stand in for the autox tomorrow

    This has been a bigger disappointment than any of us ever could have anticipated. I feel empty, nay, cheated, out of the opportunity to see your face tomorrow. They should have one more in the fall months again though. Don’t let me down twice in one year.

    FWIW, VDO does make the appropriate metric threaded sensors
