be very careful when entering driveways, and take the extra block of two detour to avoid speed bumps.

Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.

GSR, I don't think so. I'm checking into it, emailed a couple contacts overseas...I think that the only way you'll get a lower profile pan is thru a custom shop, but I'll have to see what they say.

ummm.. wait a minute. E30's don't need x-braces, our car is stiff enough to avoid crinkling like tin foil when you abuse it. \sarcasm
