    Down the road I maybe change them out for euro supersprint headers or something name brand. But these will do for now.

    Stripped a brake fluid hardline, and I need some a few parts so I can bypass the throttle body heater. After that I should be real close to firing it up. Fingers crossed.
    I wish I was closer so I could help. I have a bunch of tunes too.

              I'm not.

              I need to purchase the additional AC pulley from VAC (If they ever return my call or email..)

                      Thanks guys, yea that studio is pretty cool. I shoot actual jobs there a lot, they are so slow right now that they offered me a day on the house(!) so I had to take the rare chance and get my own hooptie in there.

                        this is what you do when there are too many rainy days: removed the crap paper color stripes and painted and clear coated the M emblem. what i wasn't ready for was the increase in horsepower. car feels like it has a turbo now. amazing.

                          Style 24

                          After a very long and arduous journey, I finally got together a staggered set of stamped Style 24s and had them all refinished.

                            I had to replace my left rear wheel bearing. That was the biggest bitch of a job. I also replace the pads, emergency brake shoes, rotors and left rear hub. Getting that hub off took a while.

                              Hell yea. So let me ask though, are these not available new still? I thought they were. But I don't know the differences between all the variations of Style 24 aside from the stamped ones are the cool ones.

                                the stamped ones are the cool ones but were much harder to find secondhand compared to the later non-stamped, polished Style 24s. Some of these wheels I got from E36 groups in England where they seem to be a lot more common. There's a third variant, polished AND stamped that was on the M3 GT, but I think that's basically unobtainium at this point. I was watching Henry Catchpole review an actual M3 GT on youtube pretty recently and, looking closely, even that car didn't have the polished/stamped LTWs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-JF...ature=emb_logo

                                Last I checked for the stamped, painted Style 24s the fronts are not available but the rears still are. So if you wanted a square setup with 8.5" all around you could buy new:

                                front: https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-...h/36112227350/
                                rear: https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-...h/36112227360/

                                Idk if/when they'll make more fronts, but it's funny... when I started my search for these a couple years ago, the rears were NLA at the time but the fronts were available!
