Sadly, I took my pictures of the car and sold the car "as is." Couldn't take parts off of it after I had already received payment, which was pretty fast.

Actually, you probably should have just bought the entire car as is, since it was such a good deal for all the parts. BBS RG-Rs with Michelin Pilot Sports, 330 engine that didn't burn oil and freshly rebuilt steptronic both with less than 78k, Dinan intake was the only mod to the engine. The brand new Bilstein Sports and lightly used H&R Race springs. Sport package body kit as well.

Umm yeah, Mishimoto has the worst selection of universal parts ever

http://www.mishimoto.com/universal-s...tor-hoses.html

Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if Mishimoto sold rebranded Samco parts, since everything offered is also something samco makes, also in colors that samco does.

Kalim, Dave, and others in the south bay, I'm probably going to be coming down there at some point today because my sister is going to be having a party here. I'm also going to be locking my door and taking my computer with me so I don't have the same problem as last time.

Mebbeh. Samco claims theirs are handmade in the UK. Kinda wondering where the Mishimoto ones are. That detail seems to be absent from their product info.

Good call.

My appointment canceled, so I'm taking care of things on my cars that I've been putting off.
Abridged list of things to do:
-E30 fuel line replacement
-E30 cluster mix and match
-E30 transmission fluid level check and change
-M3 bumper removal and muffler installation

Well, the other thing I'm wondering is how much a difference for a street car a generic vs. Samco hose makes...I haven't looked into them that much wrt reliability/quality.
