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.










instagram! Follow me, nicksmithbmx





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.









This picture really shows the color of the car.










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.


Both on the street




Nick

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 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!
