Summer wheels!! Finally got the borbets on, effectively ET20 with 205/45/16 tires. Looks badass, 225's will be even better. Civic belongs to a good friend of mine, he's waiting for tires for his GT3's.

what valence are you putting on???
ride height is perfect. fenders match the wheels perfect imo.

haha "special needs parking"

i spent 5 yrs in UW but have no idea about the location of the photos.

Looks good, and what's with everyone getting black rims nowadays: Chris, now you.

Drop looks nice, i am almost determined to get IE stage3s too. Only problem is i cannot drop too low on them since my underground parking ramp is steep and my oilpan is gonna be lower than the standard M20 one is. So I guess i'll have to be running extra padding.
If I want only a 1.5" drop all around on IEs, what kind of padding should i use?
Also i heard that lowering an e30 (mac-pherson/semi-trail suspension in general) too much actually hurts the performance. They suggest that 1.6" drop seems to be optimal

please forgive the hijack

Burger King: Early "is" air damn, flat black, and the diving boards are going flat black too.

Static: Glad someone noticed the special needs parking. It's the back parking lot of the insurance company located on Westmount, just north of Erb (right on the intersection with William). Honestly though, if I had to do it again, I'd go with GC's. Linear springs + infinite height adjustment = win, especially with your lower oil pan.

Blades: Yup, I went through the drivethrough around 7-ish on my way to Waterloo.

Cyborg number guy (AKA Chrome :D): No, that's not Gary's car, his is silver. This is my classmate and roomie Arash. And I don't care about temps, the 'Vic still has winters on, and we drive that (burns a lot less gas in the city).

Thanks for the kind words guys, and FYI, it looks 100x more badass in person :)

Haha, the wheels I owned for 48 hours. I'n thinking bringing them into the E30 community was a mistake, everyone will own them at some point.

Nah, I'm pretty sure these wheels will stay with me.

Jay, did you actually think that ET35 was going to fit? I mean it's close, but it would look rediculous.

Looking pretty good.. Is it lowered?

Axxe

Nope, stock height :rolleyes:

Seriously, have you ever seen a stock height E30? They look like 4x4's. I'm lowered almost 2" in the front, 2.5" in the back.

Yeah, The e30's all look quite high, it's getting really hard to tell unless it's slammed.. Maybe because the bumpers are so thin and high off the ground, it gives that effect

Why not get a "iS" frontspoiler? That would set off nice

It almost did. 3mm spacer and I would have made it.

I bought them to use as winters, actually. The best performance winters come in 16" and up.

I reall don't like how the blue/gray works with the black.
Those rims were meant for Sebster's car. Idiot sold them. Tsk.

The iS spoiler is in the plans. Yes, the lack of lower valences makes the car look low on pictures, but in person it looks low.

My buddy goes to laurier. I drove him and spent the night in res.

03-15-2006, 01:00 AM
You should have let me know alan. We could have went to Morty's for beer and wings.

My drive home was very fun. Absolutely no traction with the FM901's. 10kph FTW.

Woofer
03-15-2006, 01:06 AM
yea it was like last minute tom. I'll be up there more often in the summer though.

The ride home for me was sweet. I noticed a maxima behind me tailing me hard. it was like the 96 body style. Zimmie was right. E30s on the hwy are quick man. That maxima had trouble keepin up.

Axxe
03-15-2006, 01:13 AM
How did you like the highway 8 to 401 ramp? Last summer I was taking that ramp at 180, ****ing beautiful banking.

Woofer
03-15-2006, 01:21 AM
lol right after that ramp is where the maxima popped out from. lol It would have been nice to take him on that ramp. (hwy was empty)

Axxe
03-15-2006, 01:27 AM
Haha, I love that ramp, mainly because there is no conceivable spot for a cop to stop for a speed trap, and you can see if he's coming from behind. During the 3 years that I've been driving to and from Kitchener, I've only seen cops parked twice, and rolling with traffic a handful of times. It's pretty safe.

Camera: Canon A400 ($200 cheapie, no tripod)

Car was smashed up beyond reasonable repair when I hit a pothole on the Gardiner, blew a tire up, and it pulled me into the guardrail. The springs live on in Devon's 318iS (E30_kid89), the motor and trans are in my current 318iS frankenstein, the diff is in CleanE30's S50E30, and the rack, bushings, etc are in various states of installation in my current e30 (rack and front bushings are in, the rears are yet to be done).

And yes Neil, system sounds good for what it is (a very basic setup), and thanks again for letting me use your warm underground parking lot during the snowstorm :)
