Paypal $74.99 and I'll get started.


I'll see about it, possibly tonight. I wonder if the studs on the strut mount will be long enough for the reinforcement plates + a strut brace. Should be, right?

It's called "made to order". It's something an E30 owner wouldn't know about.

If they ever touch your brown areas, just blurt out "Oooh! That tickles!"
No filters, just saturation adjustment and contrast adjustments. Not done.

Oh, OEM M3 rare occasion shearing, ok.

Not sure about stud length. The studs are very short to start with.

The problem is a lot of the sand/gravel reflects the blue of the sky and the paint picked a lot of that up. Probably had something to do with the settings I had the camera on too. I'm a noob when it comes to photography.

I can't do anything right now. I'll send you a pm or a text if I decide to do it My suspension overhaul won't be for a little bit anyway.

That's basically Jersey Shore (the place, not the show) territory, lol.
It's a short trip on NJ Transit from there to NYC, too.

Silver Grey. It picks up a lot of ambient colors, especially on really clear days like it was. That's the problem with taking photos of it; if you do it on a nice day, all the colors end up coming out the same So you need up needing to fiddle with contrast and saturation levels in order for the car to be the visual focal point.

A motivated seller, you are not.



Well, the issue there is that they've already hoarded each other.



LOL, they're gonna find him a brown wife and they're gonna make brown babies and there'll be a brown fetus swimming in a sea of brown amniotic fluid. When you open the door to their haus, you'll get a strong whiff of brown
like the heat that comes rushing into your face when you open a hot oven.
I'm not even too crazy about it, but there are good things about living there.



Kinda want some storage space, but no, not really motivated. lol



Hoard ALL THE FANATICS!



WTH

You should take photos of it in a very gray setting on a very gray day.

Good engineering practice says 2 extra threads minimum Maybe I'll take some measurements tonight, and subtract the thickness of the plate and see how much room I have to work with.
