Like I said, cabin filter and air intake out, you've got all the room in the world. Headers and exhaust work is a breeze compared to the Riv. Belts take all of 10 minutes, don't need to crawl under the car or burn your arm (I'm to impatient to wait) to do plugs, etc... But, while maintenance for the most part is easier to perform, you have to be sure to stay on top of it and use quality parts. No AutoZone parts allowed!

Eh, it's probably time for an update....

Threw some new wheels on that fit and look a little better than the old ones, finished the Brembo conversion all around (F+R off of a Porsche 911 996), LED tails, new headunit shift knob and steering wheel, and getting a new bumper because some cuck rear ended me and took off (luckily he came back and paid the price HARD). Currently holding 1st place in points with my local autocross group with only 3 events left. Getting ready to throw some coilovers and maybe some other goodies at it. Car has been treating me pretty ok so far...............

Saw a boat that looked exactly like mine last night, figured I would come back here to avoid the crappy BMW forums.....

Gained a new ride and the BMW got spoiled with way too many parts. Old 2.5 held a marriage ceremony between the valves and the pistons, so I sent that motor off to the scrapyard and picked up a 3.0, lightweight flywheel, all sorts of other goodies to waste a significant chunk of change getting it going again. Running some 235/40/17 Maxxis RC-1 tires this year for autocross and between them and the new motor I've chopped some time off my runs. Last event I was only 3-4 seconds off of a fully built turbo Miata on Hoosiers (he was FTD) so I'll say something is working right.

Hello Gang:
It's been a while.

www.americantorque.com/page/0/1189/

I sold my Riv back in 2014 and bought it back yesterday. The fella had only put 3k mile on her and added a new exhaust system. He and his wife are moving to Panama and he decided to give me first chance on the Riv. I now own three show cars and I'm once again running out of room.
I'm also the proud owner of the Saturn Sky Redline pictured at the following link: www.americantorque.com/page/0/3658/ and a really hot 2003 Mustang pictured at the following link: www.americantorque.com/page/0/3263/

Just want to give you guys a shout-out and say it's good to be "Going Fast With Class" once again happy

Cool to get your car back!
It was always one of the sharpest IMHO.
