Got The E90 Parts Got The E90 Parts

Mostly cosmetic, but most importantly a rework to the OEM exhaust. I am seriously falling in love with this car, even though I know it’s going to be swapped by an N55 powered car the moment I can. Either way, enjoy.

Got the 3 running again. Cleaned the MAF sensor and throttle body, then gave it a jump because it at for too long. The rev hang is awful right now, but I’m hoping that’ll straighten itself out shortly and the CEL won’t come back.

Not sure if any of you know my obsession with the Corvette Racing race cars, BUT I AM OBSESSED!! I desperately want a C6.R. Which in 2007 Pratt & Miller sole the #3 which finished second in its class at Le Mans. Only $650,000 at the time. Ok lets see what in the piggy bank...

The last time I talked to Oppo I asked you guys if I should buy a Civic or a Jetta with a $9,000 budget. At the bottom of that post I said I was also looking for a Mazda 3, but had difficulties finding a decent one.

My dad had an 82 camaro z28. 305ci, 165hp, 8.6 to 60mph and the 1/4 in 16.4. And it gets walked soundly by a 2014 mazda3 with the lowly 2.0 skyactiv with a measely 155hp. 0-60? 7.7. 1/4 in 15.9. 40mpg highway!

Yesterday, the high temperature was only 75 degrees and my unemployed self got bored, so I decided to go OCD on my car, which wasn't even that dirty in the first place.

For the past two weeks we've been watching F1/europe centric movies here on the LNO Theater but not any more. With it having been Veteran's day yesterday, I figure we've had enough of this namby-pamby, wine at lunch/warm bear drinking, cheese eatin', France havin', European surrender monkeys.
