You dog...

Driving your car made my day. It’s rude, crude and social unacceptable. I loved it.

In my defense, Harald forgot to put a flywheel in his car. Lol.

The torque curve of the 16v is so linear. It pulls from bottom to top. And quickly.

Been busy getting this ****box out of the garage so the German ****box can get its engine pulled. It's like playing a particularly exhausting game of musical chairs. Alas, its interior is once again cohesive. More details once motivation wills itself into existence

Wow, those do look nice in there Harald.

Reminds me I need to get back on the seat project on the wagon some year.

I do like that steering wheel setup better than the other one. The dish on the old one was just funky when I drove it.

Digging the Bertone "real Corinthian Leather" door panels! I'll go the same route on my 242.

So what did that driveshaft / universal joint issue turn out to be? Are you running the Aerostar output yoke on your T5? Or did you try to fit the 4 cyl. Turbo FORD massive yoke on?

Oh it has the same offset on account of a quick disconnect I installed. Works really well for my build other than the stalks being at a weird distance from the wheel. It's fine. Just fine

Hehehe, the Corinthian Leather thing never gets old Always makes me think of Jersey for some reason. There are some on ebay for relatively reasonable money. Just keep in mind that the rear side panels are different between the Bertone and normal 2-doors.

As for the slip yoke I'm running the Aerostar one with a trans "counterweight", essentially a tuned mass damper in the form of a chunk of iron encased in a bracket and a bunch of rubber in between. It helps a decent deal but not enough for what I want this car to do so I'm going with the big 1330 MASSIVE deal. Wish me luck!

I have a full set of chrome lined GLE vents, clock, and glove box that would add to your already beautiful interior. Let know if you’re interested.

Don't even pretend that I haven't notices and it hasn't bothered me. Once the BMW is fixed I'm going shopping for stains.
