    e34 Touring

    Looks good! Nice touch with the interior button for the hatch release, bet that’ll come in handy when camping in there.

    Of course it snows the week before I come home to put the car away. Still has to be moved to storage too, that’ll be interesting.
  3. Love that orient blue on the e34, too bad it's auto. And I agree, too much for it.

    2018 holiday sales, promo codes, etc.

    Yeah, no thanks. Guess it's back to searching. Worst case, I guess I buy the metal spacers everyone else uses and cuts in half, use them to measure and machine the correct sized stuff. Thanks Dan, appreciate the insight. Didn't realize how truly bad some of their crap was.

    You think I'd be okay buying the spacers for an e30 rack swap from them, or would they likely screw that up too? I'd machine my own, but I don't have the dimensions for them.

    1989 E30 325i Progress

    Just my two cents, but for a street car I’d go for the HD OEM stuff if I were you. Usually not very expensive, it should last a long time, it’ll make the car more pleasant to drive, and you really don’t have to worry about fitment or quality like with some aftermarket stuff. Obviously, if it’s gonna see track time that doesn’t apply and I’m of absolutely no help, but for what it’s worth I’ve been nothing but pleased with every OEM bushing I’ve put onto my car (except for rear shock mounts, the stockers suck wiener). Other people will be better sources for info for autox stuff, but this is my recommendation for a car capable of spirited driving.

    1984 BMW R100 Cafe Racer Project

    I remember seeing that bike online not too long ago, super cool. I’ve always had a desire deep down for a cafe racer like that. Super excited to go see how this turns out!

    M20 Engine Oil (summer only)

    I don't, I never cared enough for the e30 to do it. I was also a little scared of what it'd find haha. I might for the e34 though to see what we're working with and whether there's any weird issues.

    If you’re really worried ever, you can also send an oil sample off to blackstone labs and have them run an analysis on it, they can tell you if there’s anything amiss.

    M20 Engine Oil (summer only)

    I run 20w-50 Castrol GTX, it's the recommended summer weight per the manual and Castrol I believe was BMW's recommended oil at that time. Otherwise, some people say that Valvoline VR1 in the same weight is a good choice due to higher concentration of ZDDP. I don't stress too much about it personally, I can't imagine there would be huge difference in wear whichever way you go as long as you stick to the recommended oil weights and oil change intervals.

    Good lord that touring looks amazing. Love the wheels especially!

    Haha i'll see what i can do, the nose on this car is significantly shorter and the nose cone wider than in years past. I think it looks a lot better, but it's still the same general shape.

    Nope, it’s the MSOE (Milwaukee School of Engineering) SAE formula hybrid car. Different class of car, but similar intent.
