Well some owners will do it at 90K and 100k. I currently have 106k. Its not just the timing belt and water pump. Im replacing my leaking cam seals, crank too. You can get the entire kit on ebay for under $300.

Well......BIG day for the car.

FIGS sway end links on the way. Front and rear.


OZ Ultraleggera wheels on the way. 17/8/+48. Don't hate--wanted lightweight performance. Kumho Ecsta 4X KU22 shoes. 245/40/17. Thought I would try this size in anticipation of summer tires same size.


Giving my current Pirelli P Zero Nero AS 225/45/17 to my son for his BMW E36; his are bald, we're heading into winter here.

Fixed boost leaks, replaced frozen caliper, little street tuning, up'ed boost and new spark plugs in my gte powered baby yesterday. So much stronger now!! Last week I put a 12" type r in. Last month swapped out my Megan lp coils for stance gr+'s and also swapped out my eBay exhaust for a hks hi-power "cat back". Moving up in the world. Lol
