Got some new parts recently

-New Control arms with New Ball joints. Yesterday
-New Tie Rods & Front control arm (Rear) bushings. last week
-2, 3 weeks ago New Coil over suspension & beefy R.S.B's

so Yesterday The mech is like I cannot let you leave with that exhaust
it is sad & disgusting!
True it was rusted out & split apart & made very aggitating vibrating resonance, especially around 2500Rpm's :puke:

So he sawed it off asked me if i liked the look of where I was holding
the striaght pipe and then tack welded it in!! *drink*
Loud, but in a good way! I'm sure it will stale on me quick!
and then I'll get a Muffler

Forgot to mention the Video:
around the 75% mark you may notice the curb gets yellow?

this is basically a 90 degree right turn.

How much did the control arms and ball joints cost you? I think I need to replace those parts too..

tell the videographer to put a block on the mic to stop the wind-noise... i'd like to hear what the exhaust sounds like now though.. tough to hear in the video, and not sure if the sound is your car, or your friends car...

Justin, that exhaust sound in the vid is his brother's bmdoubleya's E30 325...sounds good in person...

So I take it you guys were going to M&M for a little timmies...Maybe if you come Weds to orleans we could get a little noise from that thing *th-up*

just a bit over $200 CDN each for NEW arms with B.joint installed.

can get b.joints for $30/$40each but installing them is labour time x's 4 $$$$


**i might show for wed in orleans not a 100% though
