    16s. I am leaving the centers that color for now. The lips are not off and getting re-finished.

    Yeah not an M5. I just have a strong lust and passion for the M5. I personally drive a VW.

    Here is another new addition as of recently.

    The wheels are currently being taken apart and refinished then I will need some adapters and a good tire combination. For the race fans I realize I am putting a staggered setup on a FWD car, but thats ok, this is more a show car/daily driver.

    Here is my race project.

    Thanks for the plug man. :bigthumb:

    My eyes might be playing tricks on me this late at night, is that a GT molding kit?


    And :cool: re: the 2dr Mk3. I heard you bought that thing, but wasn't sure since you've never really mentioned anything about it. Curious as to what the weight is of that thing if you know it. We've got a stripped down '94 CL ice racer that is around 2200lbs w/ full cage and dash.


    PS. You change your wheels more than the mods on here change their underwear. :big grin:

    Haha, The coupe I think weighs in around 2100lbs. There is a lot of metal cut our from the inside. No rear parcel tray, a lot of metal taken from the trunk, plexi rear windoww. Im am about to drop a 1.8t in it so I can track it this season. Figured it is the perfect canidate.

    I do change my wheels a lot what can I say. I hadnt found the perfect set untill now. Or so I think. I wish I had the GT molding kit, I just painted the lower half black, if you ever find a GT kit pleaseee let me know. I am dying to get one, that would pretty much complete the car.
