Here's where I've gotten with my touring



As she currently sits. Needs paint badly as well as a few maintenance and upkeep items, powered by an M50tu, now sporting pretty nice leather sport seats.

Lookin' good! 9s at the back? Just an FYI, those star wheel covers are facing the wrong way, easy fix though!

Yep, 9's in the back. I wanted to go with 225/45 fronts and 235/40's rear but I got a deal on a set of used 225's so went with them. I'm glad I did, too. The rears are slightly stretched and it's still tight with them not rubbing. Need a real fender roll. Also,



"Fixed" the covers.

Also replaced my thermostat with an 82 degree m20 one, swapped plastic to aluminum thermostat housing, metal impeller water pump and aluminum mishimoto rad. Also have GE coilover sleeve kit inbound from LA. Hoping the stiffer springs will eliminate rubbing in the rear.

I bought it already landed from a British e30 guy locally. He had a Stilring silver 318is, a Sterling silver 318is track car, a laguna vert and had previously sold off an e30 or two. Also had at least a couple MGs lying around.

The whole RHD thing is a big pain in the butt most times, but here in Halifax there are tonnes of RHD cars so at least it doesn't garner me too much attention, especially from the police...

Hey, do you have acs wheels currently on the car? I'm in the Halifax/Dartmouth area this week and I saw a sliver e30 touring in town monday, powered by something 24v. Kinda loud-ish...and pretty sure 5lug.

sound like you?

Wish I had a set of ACS to put on. Still rocking the M-Systems but I'm not aware of any other silver tourings around HRM.

On a side note, I'm assuming you were happy with the outcome of the Hungarian GP?

I put my German Engineering coilovers on last weekend. Got to put the fronts all the way down to even out the drop in the rear. Removed spring perch but didn't chop down the housings.

Sweet. Hear they are suppose to feel great. A good alternative to GC coils. Any pics?

And you drive a 5 lug e30 touring. I'm sure you get plenty of attention LOL.
