First drive of S52 E30

Finally buttoned everything up, all that's left is to wire the spal (know what to do, just looking for the harness off someones aux fan, wish I kept mine but I didn't know what to do back then) and do exhaust, which is scheduled for next tuesday. Wanted to take it out for the first time to see if it would blow up or barf up all bodily fluids or what...

I know tastes are not to be discussed but I ****in love this little red brick. Other than the iS airdam I have painted and ready, I'm not changing a damn thing on this car, and that includes the diving boards.

Man, my neighborhood is all rich waspy ****s, I must have pissed off half a dozen of them, got so many stink eyes. I of course had to go for a second pass after I saw their reactions (not on video)... you can also hear a dog going **** nuts after I shut it off.

As I was pulling out first time I noticed a cop and backed in to go check that he isn't hiding, waiting for me. As you all know, cops here have a hard-on for modified cars (let alone those unplated, uninsured and making enough noise to wake the dead).

Left the hood open to be able to see any smoke quicker. My first thought was to leave it open but then I realized there was something fundamentally wrong with that...

I so happy. Engine runs very smoothly, it's so nice to drive a tight transmission, steering rack etc. With the 3 turn rack I could see this being an autox king if I were so inclined. It's the first time I tried moving the car with the PS hooked up and it's lighter than the stock E30 was and 30% faster, it feels like a complete dream. The double chamber booster and 25mm master makes the brakes feel WONDERFUL as well! Very stiff, very strong.

Yeah man, the only thing I'm changing on the exterior is adding an iS airdam which I have painted and ready to go (just no mounts for it). I'll wash it and get a good polishing treatment for the passenger fender for the oxide but that's it.

The camera doesn't do it justice, it sounds like a FIA GT2 911 car - not really a pleasant sound up close, just raw noise. With the exhaust setup I have planned out I don't think it'll be a whole lot quieter, just take the edge off and sound a bit more noble.
