I remember you then. I loved seeing your black e90 with those bright AE's! Looked great! You let me in line once on the last time out I think

they are actually from a 95 e36 at a salvage yard (they didn't have ones for a 96) so they fit isn't perfect. I had bought them before plasti-dip was out so I could sand and paint them black and keep my factory chrome ones. As hard as I was flogging it through the turns it was just enough to wiggle them loose.

Hope you had a good time, I definitely did. Unfortunately, my car went into limp mode on the last two sessions - wastegate got stuck open. For the last run, I had to uninstall the Cobb and run my Procede on Map 3 to keep the wastegates open manually. Got passed by everyone but I still had fun with 150 hp!

Yeah, man, that was soooo much fun! Hate you had issues with the turbos. How did the e90 do in the curves? My little e36 328i hung right with the big boys in the curves but not much on top end. They'd be pointing me by but I couldn't pass them. That was frustrating.

It did great but it does have a "few" suspension mods (no LSD though). I'm fully convinced that Michelin PS2's are over-hyped by everyone though. For the last session, all I could really do was to try not to lose too much momentum through the turns; the E90 has a lot of grip. What's the next event you're going to?
