what to do with $4500.00

Choice 1: S54
Choice 2: rebuild S52 and put some goodies on it like cam/hfm/software
Choice 3: use the money for track days

Money for track days. Did you ever end up getting a roll bar and race seats installed?

Rudy,

Well the seats, yes. The roll bar was a bit of a SNAFU. Ended up ordering a bolt in from bimmerworld. Local guy wanted way too much for it

How much track experience do you have? If very little or not much, i'd say do that first before more modding.

If you think your driving is not the one holding the car back, then I'd do Cams/3.5 Maf/software assuming your suspension is all setup.

Save your money, just enjoy it, do maintenance and wait till something breaks...

If you get it for 250, I'll buy it off you for like.... 275 :p

What do you want out of your car? You need more power? Want another project? Want more track / instruction time? Suspension? Maintainance?
