Heh, a worthy statement and I'm glad I'm not going crazy on this thing like I tend to do. May find a body/rolling chassis somewhere and do an m50/turbo build in it if/when I get time. Luckily I got brothers who love cars and would help me, even from Germany.

Wanna trade your ridiculous expensive e30 turbo build for my relatively stock e30 with rust and a few bent parts straight up? -grin-

Welcome! Very clean car, I'm jealous haha. Please keep it clean and classy, would be a shame to take a car in that good of condition and mess it all up.

If you do this, I would be VERY interested in some parts!!! One of the hardest things when trying to get euro stuff is just dealing with the cost of shipping.

I'll definitely be taking good care of her and keeping her clean ol' self. Since I'll be in Germany for so many years, my wife has approved of me collecting things. So if I stay diligent and learn what to look for, I definitely don't mind stock piling some stuff and bringing it back, heck maybe import something I couldn't get here in the states and fill it with parts :d
