hi guys! I know this is just a forum for bimmers but. hear me out, i got notin else todo at this time lol. When I first got into automobiles, I was hooked on the euro side. And cuz my dad gave me his e30 for my 16th b-day. I was so into the Beyerische Motoren Werke's heritage, that i did so much reasearch about these beautifull machines.
well havin the car for a while now, all the main symptom's were noticable. and at the time, bein that i did my homework and became an BMW enthusiast, i hated those damn rice-rockets on the street. but it all changed when i had to spend money on my poor baby, a damn head gasket install.
feelin down i walk around my neighboorhood and noticed these group of guys kicken it and wrenchin on civics (eg6 to be exact) So i introduce my self and say what up to everybody (there was 3 eg6's, a del-sol, and a crx) and i jess notice sumthin different about these rice-cookers (dont worry, im asian myself. matter of fact, these dudes were white, but anyways..)
basicaly i get schooled (with good friendly intentions) about how was what goes here and under where on there cars. And they were nice and answerin all my questions. then they say, " lets hit the canyons." i was like cool sounds fun.
they all start up there cars... sounded like a pack of harleys. well i dont wanna bore people but you should know what happened after that day of carvin in the canyons. i was hooked. i was buyin sport compact car instead of europeancar. i started orderin mugen and spoon, endless, etc etc catologs instead of bmp and bavauto. And man its rediculous on how much what bimmer owners pay for their parts. and over 80% of the parts doesnt have to do any thin for gainin any hp! (cmon 140 for freakin pedal set. then another 50-140 just fer the dead pedal) keep in mind that this was durin the 90's so ebay wasnt as populated as now.
well to make the story shorter, i enden up owning two eg6's (92-95 civic-) and they were way more fun on the performance side and the wallet. but they are gone now. too much fun in the canyons.... (oh btw, yeah slap a turbo on a b16 and it wont last, but jess haul it out and slap a new one. they're dime a dozen)
now im currently workin, actually between my first bimmer and the end of this story, at my buddies shop. He used to work fer MotoRex (YES Skylines are tha shiznit. its like a drug driving one of those things) but they are slowly phaseing out cuz their main income was actually importing cadillac cts's and escalades wit dub's on em to japan. so now my buddy opens this shop up and basically its now the main place where Chris Forseburg (D1 champ - Drift Compition) and a whole lotta skylines and.... my point is, if it wernt for those dudes. i wouldnt be a car ENTHUSIAST. and ironically now im driving a hand me down e36, all ready got a full hamman kit for it from my previous job at importfan.com (gtp international) but i think they got bought out by extreme dimension er sumthin, any ways, back to your post. why not jess keep em both. Im havin fun wit my e36, and with its condition as it is now, she still drives like i wanna her to drive. Ultimate driving machine......
