-Now mine


2000 Audi S4, 130k miles, got it for $6500. List was $8500. Has a new ECU already for some extra power. Looking at getting a turboback exhaust soonish. Right now I really just need to get it inspected, insured, and registered so I can actually drive it around. Then fix up some little things and clean it up. More to comeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Nice, I like those B5 S4's.

Any transmission upgrades? Short throw shifter? Upgraded clutch?

I want to get one of those some day. I really like them.

I'm not a fan of white, but I love Camaros. It's definitely a sharp looking car, you've got there.

I've got a red '84 Z-28 w/ T-Tops. A great cruiser! 305 HO, 5-speed manual. Completely rebuilt motor all chromed out with Edelbrock and a 4" cowl hood. Also have redone much of the interior. Next thing on the list is a fresh paint job. I'm thinking black, but I'm not sure yet. Maybe a darker red.

It actually used to be a lot nicer. I had 2 people wreck into it and my dad hit another car with it! 3 "accidents" and none of them were my fault!

My car used to be a cruiser 'till it got ugly. So I tore it down, added aluminum corvette heads and some other goodies. Shaved off some weight and itcurrently runs high 13s from 5.0L of underdog power! muahahah!

No, I just could have done it quicker, but I didn't feel like risking a grind.

Took some rolling shots with my friend's relatively new Nikon D90. Managed to get my dad's Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC that day too (with his permission of course). I'll post up rolling shots with my E36 later.

Thanks! Here's one of the rolling shots with my 325i. My blog has also been updated by the way. Just thought I'd put that out there...
