What type of body are you shooting with?

I've always loved the E30. I want to build a track ready one.

The 50mm 1.4 was such a good lens for what it was worth. Ever since my friend dropped mine I haven't picked up my camera to shoot.

Woooooooooo!!!! Faaaaacckkkk Yeaaahhhh!!!!
Just got done putting on my M3 lip spoiler and Splitters on my baby!
Took about two and a half hours, but I saved $250+ from what they were going to charge at a shop nearby.
Let's hope that 3M tape works good

Make sure to use painters tape to hold it down so that it doesn't raise. Keep the painters tape on like for 2 days.

Man, what a weekend. The M3's pressure plate decided to collapse on Friday night and I had to tow the car home. Good thing I only got about a mile down the road and there was a gas station right there.

Then it got even better. While I was waiting for the tow truck, people started honking at this car in the left turn lane on the other side of the street. The driver was just sitting there slumped over his dash so I sent my friend over to see if he was ok and to throw his hazards on since he was right in the middle of traffic, lol. Called 911 which was busy, but eventually PD showed up followed by 2 more cruisers. I guess they figured he was drunk or something, haha. Good entertainment while waiting for the tow.

Spent the weekend dropping the trans and changing it out. Had to drop the trans twice to figure out that the pressure plate just wasn't working anymore (looked like the throwout bearing had dislodged itself at first). Was 80+ degrees out, too. Must have drank half a gallon of water when I could finally eat/drink again around 8pm... x_x

Speaking of bad weekends.... mine started great!!

Went to the Bay Area (Palo Alto/Standford) on Friday. Since when did the tolls change??

I specifically brought $5 for the Bay Bridge, little did I know after 8:00 am it goes up to $6. Well there is a $25 dollar ticket.

Then driving on a cross street off of El Camino Real (Palo Alto/Stanford), and got a speeding ticket going 42 mph. yup, 42 in a 25 zone. Didn't even know, I guess ignorance is no excuse. First ticket in the 335i.

To top it all off, 3.5 hours to get home.

I had a good weekend. Went to G-spot for some coffee, D&B, go-karting. Watched a friend get black flagged 5 times at go-karting. Blahahahah. Anyone, want to go go-karting? I'm thinking the 8/26 at Leman's in fremont.
