I demand pictures of you drifting in the snow. But do not attempt unless you are a professional on a closed course.

There's still not enough snow on the ground right now to pull off some "good" drifitng. I'll get Linkin to shoot some shots when it snows more though.

There was enough snow in Calgary last night and today. The roads last night were absolutely awful. Cars were everywhere. I did some drifting with my truck on my driveway today.

Your car looks great. How does it handle in the snow?

Driv3r
11-22-2007, 12:27 AM
It wasn't too bad. The rear end is (like most RWD's) a little light and will step out pretty easily, but the ATS-C quickly steps in to help you gain control. I may still end up throwing some sand bags or something in the back when it really starts to snow, but we'll see.

Updated my first post, as well as my cardomain (http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2991321) site. I haven't had the money to invest in Nikki lately, but I am saving money to send her off to the body shop to smooth out her imperfections. I also have my eye's on a set of H&R Sport springs, which will lower her about 1.5" all around! :D And here are some video's I have of her in action, starting with the oldest first:

It's really warmed up here, so much that I went and detailed Nikki the other day inside and out. By the time I was finished the sun was setting and provided a nice backdrop for a photoshoot:

Picked up a 12" Kenwood KFC-W3011 Subwoofer for an unbelievable deal. As soon as I build/ buy a ported box, Amp and Wiring she's going in! Hopefully by then our recently accuired snow will be gone.

Sage: Its just a 16G Touch. Still cool none the less.


Got outta class early last week, So I went and snapped some pics of the 3'er. Hoping this is the last "Photoshoot" I post of the car being in such poor shape. Also need to test the new siggy :)

That's a gorgeous photoshoot of your BMW. IMO, it would have been great at those pyramids if you made a front angle shot with the wheels turning to a side.

Civic_Undercover
08-30-2008, 02:33 AM
Why would you sell such a good looking car? It's served you for 134k miles, why sell it now? Unless you want to buy a better version of this or something. It reminds of the M5 to a degree, the front and back are very similar. Unless that for sale sign is a joke.....

I've seen those pictures before. I think I saw your car on kijiji. I've actually been looking to buy an early-to-mid 90s 3 series. I've been looking for a while now, but I think I've decided that I don't need a new car.

I'm looking forward to seeing what this "bigger and faster" car is.

Couldn't have said it better Imprezzive. There is no need to change the status quo of ownership if all is going well. You injured your hand and you shouldn't drive manuals?
Take a bus or just drive it in high gear all the time. Although it would go slow, you wouldn't have to shift. I don't know if that's good for the tranny though....
