      Just a small update, since I've been buried by Snowpocalypse and busy working, etc.

      Last weekend I picked up a JH motor from a Mk1 GTI to serve as a cylinder head donor for the motor I intend to...

      They stopped using the VR6 name with the advent of the 3.6. They say V6 TSI on the engine cover, but the last Passat with a conventional V6 was the 2005 B5.5 with the 30v 2.8.

      My point stands. Get to the end of the lane and merge in. Every car should allow one car in. No more, no less. Everything would go quite smoothly then. Well, as smoothly as stop and go traffic can be...

      The rest of that other lane is there for a reason. Use it to match the speed of the traffic in the other lane and move into an opening.

      The G54B 2.6 engine is one that I will hold a lifelong grudge against. I guess it does ok in a truck such as this, but I remember my first car (a Conquest TSi aka Starion ESi-R). It needed a head...

      I would guess that perhaps they offered some sort of European delivery program back then. Or the original owner was in Germany for work/military reasons and knew he would be bringing the car back...

      I think they're $250-300 from a regular auto parts store or online or wherever. The big advantage is that they're a much closer ratio, something like 3.5 turns lock to lock versus 4 turns for the...

      Not much to report here. I took a trip to the farthest reaches of southern Maryland the other evening to pick up the spare parts that the previous owner of the e30 had for me. Mostly small odds and...

      I kinda wish I liked beer, because all the different varieties and clever names and cool labels are right up my alley.

      A dealership that only sells the type of cars I want to own wouldn't be very successful. And I don't usually want to sell my cars.

      I replaced the ugly airbag wheel in the E30 with this simple 3-spoke one that came with the car. I had to order an additional spacer from BMW (it normally has one spacer, I needed to double up on...

      My e30 is a US-spec car, but the fuel gauge reads in liters (rather than just E & F) and the stupid fuel economy gauge is in L/100km rather than mpg.

      I've been using Apple products for years (my last 3 phones, last 2 desktop computers, and my laptop, and 2 iPod classics). I bought a cheap Acer Android tablet and it's actually not that bad. Of...

      I know, right? I can't believe how much they're going for nowadays. I'm just thankful the frame is solid. Even at the time when I bought it I was seeing ones that had a similar body with frame rust...
