Auto-x this weekend

Hey guys and gals! The Trillium Auto-x is this sunday at the Powerade Centre, and we're hoping for good numbers. Last event we had six e30's, which was a season high, including a 1, 2, 3 finish for e30's in the event, and five e30's in the top 10, which I can't say is unexpected, or out of the ordinary. Hope to see a few more of you out to this event so we can have compete domination of track!! Hope to see you there!

This kills me. I'd love to do an auto-x event before the end of the season, but my car is no where near ready for it.

Hell ya, me too! I've let my ball joints go for so long it has destroyed one of my wheel bearings that I replaced last year... I'll be doing the ball joints on saturday though, so it'll just be the bearing that won't be happy. Oh, and rehang my muffler with some ... something.

I've got rubber doughnuts, it's just the strap that rusted out, which I ghetto rigged for a couple of years, and then the hanger failed, so I ghetto rigged a new hanger, and then the strap broke again, and the strap broke agaiiiiiiin, so now I really need a strap.

lmfao. Well, if the ones I pulled from my 318i will help you in any way, I can send them to you. They're just gonna end up at the salvage yard on the weekend when I do my scrap run.

I'm sure you could MacGyver something together.

Straps are pretty cheap, just a pain to install.

They're not as cheap as they should be. I'll rig it up one way or another.

Oh I think I was emailed by the ultimate cheap e30 owner, guy offered me $350 for the 5 speed swap, and he wants me to install it for that price too!

I thought of saying yes just to meet him and film asking him what kinda idiot he is!

Don't ya just miss the feeling of knowing that you car will break down at any minute, and you'll know exactly why? Sort of like driving an e36, but older.
