LOL my dad thought the model cars I purchased from Miles were his and had gone missing. I guess I'll just give it to him, seems like he likes it lol.

Hmm, this Porsche wagon dash is cool...and the binnacle is vaguely reminiscent of the 944:

You should like it. It's as bland as the E9x dash.

I used to not like the E36, but I've grown to appreciate a clean E36 M3.

I wouldn't mind a stripped down M3 as a track car.

BS

A E36 is a great compromise car. A car I can flog on the track and still drive it back home with all my track gear in the trunk. I can still take it to school with all my stuff because it has fold down rear seat, unlike a S2000 or 350Z. It has a LSD unlike any non-M E46. It is lighter and more tossable than a E46 M3. I might be biased but there's a reason I have a E36 and that reason is not because it is only good as a stripped out track car.

THAT SAID, I will eventually turn my E36 into a track only car...not because it can't do anything else, but because I don't have a need for it being street car, so I'd rather strip it and do what I enjoy doing the most with it

Haha, that was a fun class. I didn't realize you were still in college - thought you were like 26 for some reason
I'm 24, and I'm really slow at getting my mechanical engineering degree. I've procrastinated so much that I've managed an A.S. in welding, A.S. in machining, and a part time job doing C.A.D.

He's a good deal taller than me and of average build, and is fierce when it comes to snuggling.

Yeah, they usually make noises when they are a little gummed up. A common sign is a delayed hiss when you turn off the engine.
