Nate,

Did you find an e30? Sweet if you did. Hey Devin, I fractured a bone in my right elbow playing soccer on Wednesday night. Working is tough and shifting is painful. I can't squeeze anything without a shooting pain going to my elbow. Soccer is out, lifting weights is out and wrenching on cars is out for at least six weeks. I can still run though. If we go to spokane, I might have you drive my car for parts of the drive and I think Rebecca wants to come and hang out in Coeur D Lane on Saturday. I think I will get a room at the Coeur D Lane resort.

so they upgraded me to the ireland engineering racing style camber plate. I'm stoked this is the description from ireland engineering:

Adjustable camber plates are absolutly essential for track cars. Our camber plates mount to the body from underneth the fender using the original mounting holes. These are designed for use with 2.5" ID springs and coil overs. With the 2.5" springs you can get up to 3 degrees negitive camber. Kit includes slotted mounting plates, sliding plates with steel spherical bearings, and 2.5" ID upper spring perches containing needle thrust bearings. Plates are machined from billet 6061T6 aluminum. Racers will probably want even more than 3 degrees camber. We usually bend the strut housings 1 to 1.5 degrees for racing.

UPDATE###

I got the stromung exhaust in the mail today. damn this thing is gonna sound awesome!!!
Been busy with bushings (worst job ever!!!!!) stock ones take a lot of patience and willpower to get out and the new ones are almost as hard to put back in. Rear end is basically all done with the SS brake lines, rotors, pads, coilovers, TA bushings, subframe bushings, I'm waiting to do the diff mount until i get the LSD which should be the next thing on the list now.
Just need to bleed the brakes and the rear is set.

Front is IP, pass. strut has been removed, cut off the factory spring perch and put on the GC sleeves. Then put in the Koni Adjustables and mounted them up to the IE race camber plates up top. Will end up cutting the housing in the engine comp so that i can adj for full camber as they don't slide all the way right now. Tomorrow will be the other front strut, rotors, pads, and a full system bleed including the clutch slave which still needs to go in. then the car will be dropped onto the wheels for the first time as a 335i!!!!

Gonna be a noisy trip to the exhaust shop friday or saturday haha.
should have exhaust clips and video as soon as i can. i'm moving this weekend too so you may just have to be patient...

pics of the new parts will come tomorrow i'm thinking

<end tease>
