Oh, and LOTS of service has been done to this.
Example Rod Bearings, Chain Guides, Vanos units, suspension parts (except dampers and springs)... And tons of more

Allmost every service is done by our "own" Beast engineer Raikku aka. VantaaM5. VERY big hand for him of everything!

Nice car!

I will ask her... But I am pretty sure, that she did use her "own mixtures" also...

Those rims were in my friends E36 M3 and they are RH X-Rad's.

It has not been under 70cm of snow... Maybe you mean Antti's car? Which is "behind" that blue container?
My sh1tbox has been allways quite near the garage door in Raikku's workshop

Uh, still 24 days to get driving license back... Loooong time to wait (I have been waiting it now 180 days )

But 2nd of May....
