I had a dream a few days ago that I was out lapping. Looks like I'm in good company.

Supposed to be warm tomorrow.
I pulled my battery out of the basement, it's charging up in the garage.
Gonna start E30ing tomorrow.
Spring! Let's get our cars on the road - as soon as we get a gully-washer to get the salt off the roads and the potholes get filled. Gotta be ready...

I'm ordering tires right now actually. Should be in Tuesday if past shipments are any indication of how fast they'll get here. Gotta do a small Pelican Parts order too. Should be "ready" for next weekend.

Thanks Rich LOOL I figured somebody would notice, I was just test fitting there with different spacer set ups and just seeing what they looked like on the car, wasn't too sure if I was gonna like them or if I was gonna go back to gold but they turned out pretty nice

How well does your carpeted garage hold up?

So these showed up today. People I work with find it strange I have a set of tires in my office. I think it's pretty much par for me.

Lol did you guys really think I have a carpeted garage.. now that'd be the day lol This is where the car is stored currently for the winter, its pretty much a little indoor showroom/office at a used car dealership which my brother and his buddy run, and conveniently enough for me they're both BMW guys (The silver E36 is my brothers) and offered to store my car inside free of charge for the whole season And since it's local, climate controlled, carpeted, and secured with alarms and cameras.. it wasnt a very tough decision for me to make lool plus they let me come and mess around with it whenever they're there, which is quite nice of them as well.
