Looking forward to spring time in the Big-A!

Beautiful car. Congrats!

It's missing clear glass on the turn signals, etc, so either it's missing one option that included that, or they didn't start until '02. I only raise this because, in my view, the clear lenses are way more attractive than the
yellow ones and you might want to change them out. Not too expensive, I'm sure.

I'm tempted to buy a cf engine cover all the time but come to my senses every time I think about what I'm buying and how much I'm paying.

Ugh me too. Plus it wouldn't look great without the intake manifold in carbon fiber. And that's a small fortune.

That asuka boot looks great. But one would need very aggressive mods I think, to pull it off well.

Switched over summer tires to our Subarus this afternoon, then pulled the BMW out of the garage to wash her for spring. Still officially in storage, but I couldn't help myself, so I took her for a spin arounf the block, to dry out the water I told myself! Here are some shots today
