    I'll get another bike next summer, right now I'm trying to save up a first and last on a place of my own since I can't find any decent room mates. I kind of had to get the new exhaust for my car cause I sold the one I had on it and didn't have one on the car for about a week

    I haven't gotten a chance to test mine out much. I tried taking some pics of my cat but since she is black and doesn't like to sit still they didn't turn out too well. I'll get some good ones with it this weekend though.

    Yeah, but let's be exclusionists and keep it to Canonites! LOL

    Yes, and you can't beat the price either. The only drawback, of course, is that it is plastic and one has to be very careful not to drop it...well, too late for me. It fell out of our jeep yesterday. Fortunately for me the snow cushioned the fall but that was a close one! :nonod:

    Nice looking exh. system. So your car has two cats? 540i? I could be wrong but those look like Bridgestone Potenza S0-3's on there.

    The tires are the new Hankook Ventus R-S2, 200 tread wear and stick like glue in the dry but are a little twitchy in the rain. My car is an '89 325i 4 door (E30 chassis code) with an M50 engine swap. The M50 is the engine out of the 92-95 BMW 3 series. I've put a lot of time and money into the car but its pretty close to a point where I can call it done and just be happy driving it. My car is currently rated #3 out of all the E30's, 84-91 and #31 out of all the 3 series BMW's on Car Domain.

    Here are more photos and a full list of modifications on the car.

    Wow I was way off. I don't know BMW's too well and that exh prior to the y-pipe and beefy rear diff was totally throwing me off. Looks like a nice ride. Do you go to Sacramento Raceway? That track has a nice vibe. I need to go back again since my runs were botched by a faulty waste gate solenoid I believe I ran a 14.2 @ 95mph which was probably about 1/2 sec & 5mph slower than it should've run. I am currently working on a engine swap myself. My project has taken WAY too long but it's underway full steam ahead. Here's a link to my cardomain although it's in serious need of updating.

    Yeah, hold each by the lens when locked onto the camera, see which one breaks first.

    Metal > Plastic



    Anyways, I didn't take any Christmas pictures, and i'm the only one in the family now with a digital camera.

    I've been out to Sac raceway a few times but not with my current set-up. With my other diff that has lower gears I should run mid to low 14's which isn't bad for a N/A 2.5L inline 6. I took out a B20 swapped (2.0L RSX engine) mid '80's Accord a couple weeks ago and he was really surprised he lost

    Re: Official Christmas Picture thread

    Here are some Christmas pics. I have to figure out how to keep the picture quality when resizing. To me these look like total garbage compared to the full size version. How are you all keeping the clarity when resizing? Btw this how is just a few blocks away from home. Here's more info and pics of Santa's house.

    Re: Official Christmas Picture thread

    Here are a few from our family Christmas. We had all the children home for Christmas Eve and Christmas morning, a first in several years. This was the first time that all the grandchildren had been in the same place at the same time. We had a great time sorry it ended so soon.

    #1 My girls all dressed up and ready for bed on Christmas Eve.
    #2 The boys (our three grandsons) all dressed up and ready for Christmas.
    #3 My two daughters hamming it up with one of their presents.
    #4 Samson my youngest daughters contribution to the Christmas festivities plays with a new toy.

    A beagle? Oh my..... I've had two beagles over the course of the last 14 years or so. If you've never had one b4 let me just say your life will forever be changed.

    I recommend puppy classes right off the bat and crate training. They were the hardest dogs I've ever had to potty train. Bless you! :wink5:
