BTW**** im going to be using the 540 Brakes for my other e34 (turbo) cuz the rears are wider and vented and the fronts are just wider I will also be saving the LSD from the 540 for the e34 (turbo) and the front struts will be disassembled and cut down for coilovers I might use them for replacments on the e34 (turbo) oooooooooorrrrrrrrrr the 6 series im "supposed" to have received like a few weeks ago will get the coilovers if they make ones for an e24, or if the e34 ones are compatible

It all makes sense now!

I know where you live!!! LOL. I drive by your place every wednesday and am always wondering what's going on with that car in the driveway.

Good luck with the build - hopefully no neighbors complain and send bylaw after you

Holy God Man!
Just looked at that second pic from 06/09 with the car on stands.
You couldn't get me under that with a sharp stick, threats and beer lures.
That's not safe! , glad you lived!, don't do that again! Jeez.

One day I'll win the lottery, buy me a hoist and lend it out.
