Hauled home some auto-330 trailing arms and axles for the 330 brake swap. Please note the OEM+ cargo area protector.

$94.16, including core charges ($4.99 per axle, $2.99 per arm), enviro fee ($3), tax and a $2 yard entry fee at the U-pull. Stuff comes pretty cheap when you're willing to lay in the dirt for a few hours to get it!

Edit: For the heck of it, here's what they look like after a whole lot of scrubbin'. Had to straighten out the dust shields and hit them with a few coats of high temp rustoeleum, but boots, bearings and emergency brake gear was surprisingly clean.

Hauled a tree the other day.
Broke the tailgate plastic in the process. I need a truck.

Nah, you need a tow hitch and a small trailer.

My Ride: '03 325iT Mysticblau



Finally getting out of having my tools scattered all over the place and divided between 3 20" Craftsman 2 and 3 drawer boxes, new Harbor Freight 44" chest.
Not as nice as the one I have at work, but it won't see anywhere near the use that that one does either so it's hard to beat at the price.

Had to remove two of the casters to fit through the shock towers.

So jealous of that box. I got a great deal on a 26" base and cabinet recently, and immediately had too much stuff. Should have gotten a second one.

I sold a few things in my junk reduction effort that I've been making lately so it was a lot easier to justify now. I've been needing it for years.

Gripe - I need the top box already, and maybe the side cab.

What made you decide to go with this one versus the "standard" silver low-profile 3-ton jack? I bought that one recently and love it.

Looks nice! Finding one with those extra few inches of lift height is well worth it. Mine goes to 24", but is only a 2-ton rating. Still plenty for anything in my fleet, though.

Like @just a wagon: it ain't always about what you haul in your touring, rather it's about what you haul on your touring.

OUTSTANDING!!!

What class do you run?

I raced karts for a number of years before moving on to cars. I'm now pretty much retired from both. Unless I decide to run a 600cc Mini Sprint at the dirt track just over a mile from the new house. Possible, but not likely, although I think it would be fun for a little while.

Thanks man! I run TaG senior. 125cc Rotax on an arrow X1e chassis.

Just got into it so I'm really still trying to figure out both the setup and how to be quick. It's tough when the people you're up against show up with 10-20ft enclosed trailers and you've only got your e46 touring

The ultimate goal is cars. For now karting is a great learning tool and a somewhat affordable way to get into racing...even though it's still bloody expensive

Love it! I've been thinking how well a single handed sailboat would car top on my Touring. The height is perfect, it's right around shoulder height, for easy load and unload.
