    I put 18" wheels on my saab, it looks maybe a little weird but it's growing on me.

    I took my saab to the mountain, my family's  cabin, a 200km drive, it was so fun to drive. 
    It's quite a bit of snow here but usually its more. 

     

     
    It looks right at home in the snow.

    I don’t think I’ve ever posted my car here, but here it is!
     
    It’s a 2001 (March of 2001) BMW 325i with a 5spd manual.
     
    Sorry for the pictures, we had a wind storm here in CA and it kicked dust all over the car 😭

     
    Also @bcredeur97next time you spontaneously drive thousands of miles...maybe go west 😉

    Gave the Corolla it's first pressure wash, and gave the new wheels a good cleaning. 

    I also swapped from cheap no-name halogen bulbs to some nice Alla LED fog lights on my daily driver. The difference is night and day, almost literally 🙂

    Today I changed my rear springs on my saab 900, 29 years and about 310 000km they look surprisingly good but they were so very spongey.

     
     
    With the new springs it changed the car, it's obviously to be expected but the change was so great it surprised me. 
     

     
     
    If you have an older car or higher mileage and have the original suspension, change it, it dose not have to be fancy aftermarket things just new stock parts, it makes the car feel so much better.

    Might need to adjust rear camber and toe once the springs settle.

    This is gonna be a meta post, but while I don't post much anymore I feel like its something I'd like to bring up. Since really I made my account I have been a poster in this thread, and prior to that active on the overclock.net auto thread. I generally think that tech forums so far have had great automotive communities that aren't narrowed down to one brand/make. It creates a melting pot of fans of different types of vehicles, brands, etc and usually aren't too elitist aside from a few shitters... myself included sometimes even in jest. Its also allowed me to step out of my comfort zone of essentially being a hard core GM nut hugger and dabbling with other brands I had preconceived notions about.
     
    The various discussions weaving in and out of automotive culture within the community keeps things from getting too stale. That said, the ongoing trend of posting embedded videos without a goal of creating discussion feels like empty posting that can generally be status updates. The news section requires an opinion or statement attached to the article to be posted. Maybe the same thought could be applied to embedded posting within the thread.
     
    Just something I observed and wanted to bring up in the community. I don't post everyday anymore, but I still try to read the thread as often as work/life allows. And I converse everyday with the people I've met here in discord.

    I got some fender extensions, I'm happy with the result. It's mostly to hide the rusted fenders hahaha. I thought about to repair them but it was way to much so its not worthwhile.

    Finally found some louvers for my 900i
    Someone had painted them white so I painted them black again and I'm very happy with the results. 


     
    Car is dirty but the weather is so bad right now if I wash it will look the same tomorrow.

    Been a busy week working on my R33 Skyline. Started giving my skylines a good bath 
     

     
     
    Changed the timing belt, all the accessory belts, waterpump, thermostat, front crank seal and cam seals
     

     
    New 42mm Radiator, with billet brackets and new bushings.  Also silicon hoses to replace the aged rubber ones. 
     


     
    Also mounted up the GReddy Spec-LS Type-23 Intercooler. It has a thicker core compared to the more common Type-24, had to wait 3 months for GReddy Japan to manufacture it, but a beautiful kit. Already modified the rails and the front reo bar to fit, just need to get my hands on a hole-saw to finish the job and hook up the piping. 
     

     
    Also modified this spare cluster I have to test it out with my new NISMO gauges, modified the speedometer to mph to work with the 320km/h gauge, and made some preliminary adjustments that I need to test how accurate it is. Once i get it dialled in then will do my proper manual cluster
     


     
     
    Also hooked up the sensors and wired in my Defi Advanced Controller & Defi BF Gauges.
    Just waiting on my Carbon Fiber A-Pillar pod mount to arrive to get them mounted. 
     

     
     
    Waiting on some more parts to finish a few jobs, and then once this is all done its going in for its new Extra Heavy Duty clutch & chromoly flywheel to be installed, then off to panel and paint for the body kit fitting and painting
