Either way still jelly.

true but to be fair I've been saving for that m3 since last fall....I still dont have enough to buy it outright but for the small loan I'd have left to take out for a car that valuable I think its worth it.

also the m3 swap is going to be a free swap if I play my cards right. I spent my tax return to buy the e36 m3 and by the end of this weekend the interior/wheels/bumpers will be sold which makes back half of what I've spent on the car. selling some other pieces will make back everything for the car putting my tax return back into the bank so I can use it on other flip prospects and things.
and I'll have a free e36 m3 motor. from there its just spend mod/maintenance money on the m3 motor instead of the e30 motor.

Also x2 what Kevin said. The day I stopped playing keeping up with the joneses was the day I started being happy.

still want this license plate for some car. maybe the m roadster

i loves me some miata. :)

also hard to not play keeping up with the joneses... i think the problem is that i look externally to evaluate my position in life/how awesome the things i have are.

plus with a realtively slow auto-tragic it's hard to feel like a real car buff...

although if i owned a miata i'd be just as bad about wanting to mod that.

i'm just a silly.

also love those wheels... thinking i'll make them the race wheels for eidechse. (if that ever happens)
