Look at my cars, they're not a Focus, they might be BMW's
 
Been a while since I posted here. My SVTF has been gone for a bit over a year now. Sure do miss driving the car but I'm not mad I sold it. Anyways, I've posted my E30 up here before, seems most people liked it so I'd figure I'd post it up again as well as my new daily I picked up.

Hope this car hasn't been destroyed.

The E30. Currently down with a bad alternator. Think I'm going to pull the engine for a full reseal this winter since it leaks badly.

I may have already posted these, can't remember. Deal with it.

New daily. E34 525iT. 242K miles, stacks of maintence from the previous owner. Only a few things don't work 100% correct and has a tad of rust on the doors, otherwise is rock solid.

Fairly plain looking when I bought it. Traded my clueless roommate the 2 piece BBS style 5's off his later 5 series cause my tires had more tread. The wheel are fairly beat but I'm refinishing them this winter. Lowered the front end 2 inches and added some Bilstein shocks and added some Lamin-X to the front. Otherwise she's all stock.

I hid a stereo in the back. Polk components front and rear with an Alpine HU

Quick clean up of the wheels. They'll be completely torn apart this winter and redone.

I hope that beautiful SVT isn't destroyed either. Did you sell it to someone on here? (I don't remember)

Nice to see you popping in[wave] Love your E30! (and I started following you on Instagram[;)])

Not sure, it was someone fairly local but I haven't seen or heard of anyone else seeing it since.

I find myself driving all over Columbus and i haven't seen it. Between the wheels and the rally bar, it would stand out if i saw it. Speaking of wheels, I hope we see some snow this season or it at least gets cold enough to swap on your old cougar wheels

It's strange, I've never had a car that I enjoy driving quite as much...but in comparison to my SVT. The SVT was a much better driving car. Steering feel was perfect, breaks were very strong, much quicker, predictable at the limit etc. The E30 is a great driving car but I have never got that sense of being so connected that I did with the SVT.

Thanks for the compliments!
