VEHICLE STORY

Fun POS. The 2.8 makes it punchy enough to overlook some of the issues with this car. The cooling system needs a little bit of love and a few other issues could use some attention. That said, everything works, and there's very little that beat driving this car along with the roof down at sunset with tunes pumping. First 'mod' was a staggered set of e39 5 series style 42 wheels (8.5/9.5 x17). Second thing that needed fixing was the shift knob that had been broken since I bought it. Has been replaced with a Conrod Speed Shop 'Shorty' shifter. It's nice and weighty and has made my driving experience a good time. Future plans are a set of BC coilovers to get rid of that wheel gap. As well as a full set of new/improved bushings; I'm hoping this will tighten the whole car up and give me a nicer driving experience again. Beyond that, I'm hoping to sort out the cooling issues with a new waterpump and rad, and then just enjoy using this as a daily cruiser and occasional stancey pants show car
