    Thanks, guys!

    It is damn good to be back in the mix.

    Already been busy.

    Got the oil changed today (Motul 10W-60) along with a track inspection.

    Despite the brakes being new, GTPeace in Chantilly folks suggested I take the opportunity to upgrade from the stock pads since the rotors are basically straight out of the box.

    Hawk HPS 5.0 pads on order. Will go in on Thursday with fluid flush.

    Taking her to Summit Point on Friday (with temp tags) for the Colonial Challenge Cup, should be an interesting/unique track day.

    Also, pulled the front splitters and rear Vorsteiner diffuser. Actually a very nice piece. Will clean them all up and sell.

    Definitely like the carbon spoiler on the trunk, but the other items had to go.

    Looks so much better.

    I think the curves at the bottom of the front bumper are basically "splitters." Having them there just accentuated that line to a knife edge. I didn't "hate" them, but I would not have purchased them, let's say.

    But yes, going back into the box for now. Not in any rush.

    Congratulations on getting a great M3! I was dad to see that e32 purchase didn't happen, but you got a much better replacement.

    Yeah, my friend and I just never really could agree on a price. It was a sub-10k, shit, sub 8k car for me. He paid 5500...and "restored it."

    He wasn't budging at 14k. Which I just could NOT justify given that were zero comps and really no one gives a shit about E32's. Zero active forums, zero resources available, etc. I could eat my words and it could be a BaT gem...but...the uncertainty just gnawed at me. Plus it'd be sitting outside and basically daily driven. Didn't feel like going back in time even further than the 4runner.

    Do miss it though...the looks/reactions for that thing out on the track today would have been priceless let alone at a drift event which is what I had in mind for it.
