ZHP Track Build

Hi all,

So I found a good looking car in CA, had a friend (BMW tech) inspect it, and bought it within hours of him posting it on CL. 110k miles. We then overhauled the cooling system (which had an expansion tank from 2003!) right before the cross-country drive). I also replaced the FCAB, which were literally severed upon inspection.

My plan for the car is to build a streetable track car, with a strong emphasis toward track. I don't like compromising, but I do need to drive this to work (10 miles) when I can't ride my motorcycle. In the immediate future I want to stiffen the frame, source track wheels/tires, install a full coilover kit (pss vs KW vs ...?) and possibly a big brake kit, but I am unsure of that yet.

I replaced the headlight lenses, tail lights, side markers and shift knob.

Car the day I picked her up:
