Ah drift car now it makes sense why it's a bitsa.

Than standard yes, than using good aftermarket BMW parts I doubt. But why would you spend money in BMW aftermarket parts for a drift car that always gets crashed it would get overly expensive.

Why do you think that it will be crash over and over again? Also if I cared that much I wouldn't have decided to use a BMW nor buy all genuine items. Your logic is pointless here.

It's a drift car. It's a case of not if it will get crashed but when. My point was Nissan suspension parts instead of BMW etc. bitsa brakes instead of an AP kit for a BMW. Makes sense to do it cheaper that's what I meant

Why are you so narrow minded? Not everyone crashes. If you have a look money isn't really a factor. All about quality parts that work.

I'm not narrow minded at all. You only go for so long being in control while out of control hence why every drift car has damage 99% of the time.

And come on mate I've had a look. If money wasn't a factor there would be a heap of second hand Japanese car parts getting installed in a BMW. I'm not saying its a bad thing I was saying is was a good cheap opinion that you have found works. It's actually very ingenious that you found these parts will work in place of expensive items

Having a break from this for a while, going to buy a downhill mountain bike again!

Other thing on my mind is cooler, I'm not sure if I still want white. Other options are messing metallic with silver inside and engine bay or BMW x1 brown with gold inside and engine bay.
Messing metallic:


X1 brown:


Within the next week or two I'll do my order from tuner for everything rear cradle needed.

Looks to have a reasonable amount of header room, how does it compare to the e36.
Dry sump pump always makes an engine look serious.
Keep pluggin on buddy.
