There is a place in Norfolk/Chesapeake that did all my buddy's suspension parts for a few hundred dollars. Blasted and powder coated, the guy did a very good job. I'll try to get the shop name when I see him again.

So I've been looking at this car and I'm wondering is it over priced or not? http://baltimore.craigslist.org/cto/1639571241.html

I got my transmission out of my car and it is sitting on the floor of my friends garage. Tomorrow includes installing all of the new parts including my new clutch and reinstalling everything.

Got my rim back from the jamaican brah tonight. Shot the **** with him for a bit didn't realize his 525 is turbo and he's trying to figure out how to get a chip for it. I pointed him in a few directions but i'm not really familiar w/ e34. He even discounted the price for waiting 2 weeks. Real stand up dude and cool as ****.
