Cars We Drive! - Page 552

This would be a fun project car to make into something interesting: (needs some $$$ thrown at it but it's likely going to go for <$4500 anyway) - always wanted something like this and the M body kit for E34 wagon is exceedingly rare in the USA.

10x shell price? One could say the same thing about Singer 911s but I'd gladly buy one if I had that kind of scratch.

So much commotion for something completely reversible. Considering I'm on top of my maintenance schedule (90k Ins. II was done in Oct.) and just shelled out for subframe reinforcements, AKG 90A poly bushings just about everywhere I could stick them, and a proper alignment on a Hunter rack. From my experience, there are cheap fucks in every community. E46 M3 owners are no better or worse.

I'll give you the CSL trunks, though. I've seen some shitty fitting ones out there. Although, poor installation is part of the problem.

And this is why people stopped posting pictures of the cars they drive.

It'd be kinda weird if we all continuously posted pictures of our cars. Besides, don't take the thread title so literally -- this is just a discussion place to talk about cars in general.

It is cooler to see pictures of people's cars; certainly more fun that mere trash talk or similar stupidity.

 

The problem is that < 10% of the active membership of SF posts her, and most of us have already posted pictures of our cars multiple times. It can kind of be a little self-serving if you keep doing it I suppose.

New here: clearly, and probably will be doing more lurking than posting. However I agree, this thread could use more cars and less text.

I love contrasting colored interiors. Why so many M3's etc., are black/black inside astounds me.

it's a relatively new thing but it's catching on. many automakers charge more for what is essentially the same amount of leather and the same man hours of work, i think (same amount of leather, same process, just a different color?), so that's one reason why it's not ubiquitous. also, car dealers are notoriously slow to change their ways so they stock their showrooms with the stuff that sold well traditionally.

regarding that particular color, i had contrast color black/coral red in my 135i and wanted to go with a similar shade in my M3. fox red looks quite a bit more orange than coral red, though. nothing wrong with it, and cheers if gnatty likes it, but that wasn't my cup of tea, so i went with boring all black
