Re: When it's time to move on (and what did you buy?) Topic is solved

the N54 isn't known as the German 2JZ for no reason! I've never owned either, but I'd really love a 135i with the N54. They are tough as nails and can hold crazy amount of power. This is what gets me about 'em. The 335 is the modern Supra - plain wrapper, easy power, except there's way more 335s ou...

Re: Sellers not interested in selling...A little venting here...

The flip side of all this is when people come to hustle you. I went to sell my dad's old broken 380SL years ago, listed for 700 firm. Lots of calls, lots of interest. The first guy who came to see it said he wanted it but berated me for like twenty minutes for not lowering the price or including a s...

Re: Rear main seal change/clutch removal -850 Manual

While we're here, how much sealant should one use and of what type? I put a sensible drop of blue Permatex thread locker on the bolts and torqued per spec. I didn't realize those holes were a potential leak point or I'd have used an unreasonable amount. Has anyone else used just a drop of Loctite on...

I still that upgrade just new caliper brackets and rotors (. 280mm To 305mm)?
I think the factory big bois are 302mm. Brackets, rotors, and hoses. Super easy upgrade when it's brake time, unless your hoses are seized in place like mine were.

How are the calipers holding up?

Worth noting: the factory big brakes use the same calipers and pads as the standard items. Makes for an easy upgrade.

Re: How do you prevent wheel/ tire theft?

Wheel locks won't stop someone who really wants *your* wheels, but nobody's cruising the streets looking for wheels off a 20 year old Volvo. Theft of non-flashy wheels is theft of opportunity. You know what they say - you don't have to be able to outrun the bear, you just have to be able to outrun y...

Re: Swedish car parts and Legacy manufacturing

There are a few online services that will 3D print or CNC parts at relatively reasonable prices based only on a CAD file and maybe a print if you have special requirements. Their machines are much more capable than the typical <$1000 desktop printer. A friend just bought a brand new reproduction mir...

Re: Hilarious take down of the 850/S70

I love Regular Car Reviews. I think the point is more to entertain the audience than to convey useful information; nobody is tuning into Regular Cars so that they can make an informed decision.

Re: New to me 99' S70, base, 5-speed, 209k

A small spot will take a few minutes. Forgot to mention - wash and clay bar the area first so you're not grinding grit into the paint. When you're claying and sanding at the coarsest grit you should feel whatever you're rubbing on the surface become smooth once all the high spots are knocked down. T...
