E30 finally out of storage for the summer

Feels good

Anyone else have their cars back on the road for the summer?

Now that its out I am looking for excuses to drive it. I am usually in the Mississauga/Brampton/North York area if anyone wants to cruise. My cell number is 2898881707.

I just put mine on the road last Friday. Got an alignment and super happy with all the work I did over the winter. The new tires are also pretty good.

Car feels like it should now. Nice and nimble.

I just did that job this evening on my winter beater. Just leave the old rusty crap there and relocate it to a more convenient spot. I'll take a picture of how I did mine tomorrow night. IMO it's way better than stock in that it's way easier to service now. I've done it the same way to both of my cars.

Mine was on the road since mid-March. I never take the car out when it is snow or salt.
Over the winter I did a lot of small and big ticket items:

1 - rear subframe bushings
2 - e36 steering rack w/tie rods and alligment
3 - rear shock mounts
4 - switched interior from tan to black/grey sport
5 - US ellipsoids w/hid
6 - Switched rims to Ronal r15 et15
7 - run rca cables for amp and subwoofer (blower stopped operating ...lol)

After the all above improvements, the car feels very different now, I like it very much and do seek every opportunity to drive it.
Sometimes, I would just go out on the cruise in the evening...

Here you go...

I fabbed up some brackets out of sheet metal and attached them to the body with self tapping screws. This is on the drivers side...



Left side is feed, bottom loops up to flex line for driver side, and right side goes up and over the diff. You can see the old rotten union in the back ground...



This is the passenger side ...
