Bucket list has been checked. Nurburgring has been on my radar for a long time.

I'm not sure regarding the timeframe for Ohlins setup for e39 M5. I was just told they are working on it and e36 M3 is on the list as well. Knowing their stuff it'll come with a nice price tag but they do make high quality components.
Danke! More stuff coming soon for sure. Thanks. I work in IT for a financial company in Frankfurt and messing around with old bimmers as you can see.

They do appreciate them very much. Most of the time I will go unnoticed but often times I'll get thumbs up, same goes for when I was in France not long ago. Couple of times I had people at lights asking me to rev the engine, lol.

Yup, abandoned in a dry storage for quite a few years.

Awesome update. What's this guy doing, removing excess rubber while enjoying a cold one? Getting rid of that "clag" as it were?

That 850i is quite the find. Strange that it seems neglected but has E63 M6 wheels on it...which need to be replaced ASAP!

I guess. Few of the pits were chillaxing that day.

Yeah, I'm stoked about E31. I took a big risk buying it since it's a non-runner at the moment, engine turns over but doesn't start. Morons tried to start it with old gas so I'll need to go through few things before trying to fire it up.

Oh yes, I should pick up a set of original cross spoke 16" wheels this weekend. I'm pretty sure those are replica E63 M6 wheels and just look nasty on 850i.

Nothing looks better on an 850 than a set of Style 37 M-Pars. Jus sayin'.......

M-Pars do look brilliant on E31 but I'm leaning more towards CSi throwing stars Style 21. However they are very pricey, so it will be getting a set of original Style 8 wheels for now. Priority is to get the car up and running and then we can think about better wheels.

Maybe down the road. Getting a decent set of M-Pars or throwing stars with new tires would set me back cool $1,500-2,000 and spending that kind of dough on a car that doesn't run doesn't really make sense.
