FOTS: The Perfect E30

I see a lot of cool cars when I travel. I don’t know who own them or any of the details, they are simply found on the street(FOTS). Some of the best ones are in San Diego. Old cars live forever down here but I think it’s more because the people in Southern…

I found this on Boston Craig’s List for $8,500. We recently saw an S54 swapped 325ix a few weeks ago selling on Bring A Trailer but that one sold for $17,250. Here’s a chance to a similar car for less than half the price. I have to admit this one is tempting.…

My name is Dan. I race a 1987 BMW 325is in rallyx, hillclimbs, and other random events. But mostly Rallyx and hopefully stage rally in time. Past few events I had some people telling me that one of my drive wheels was doing nothing while I was trying to keep…

Engine Mounts for Rally – I keep breaking them

I have a really hard time keeping my engine attached to my rally car. I finally got mounts that were strong enough from AKG Motorsport, but then I started snapping the aluminum engine arms that hold the rubber mounts. So I made a jig from an aluminum one so I…
