Hey Guys, I Am Back

Some of you may remember me from a while back (for the good or bad). I thought I was perma-banned here but lost all the pics of my Speed 3 over the years and tried to sneak back on, only to find out I have been unbanned. Just wanted to reintroduce myself and hope you all will welcome me back. Ive been through a few cars since my Speed 3 days. Im not here to cause any trouble, after looking back at my Speed 3 pics... I REALLY miss the car, it was the biggest pain in the ass ever but it was awesome.

Here are a few of my "inbetween-ers." I am in the process of opening up a business and would love to get ahold of a Dark Grey or White 08.5 Speed 3 sometime soon.

Here was my old Speed 3 as it went through its stages:

Moved onto an STI:





And now the M3:






Blown engine's and turbos aside... I miss my Speed 3

Thanks for looking

Re: Hey Guys, I Am Back

All I need to see is the Stanceworks coilovers and the wheels to know that it'll be nice in my books.

Yea, I will be running them pretty low but all the guys running them are on 17s/lower pro tires and I am on 18s with little more meaty tires so I will ride a little higher automatically. Come spring time I am going to toss some 285s or something on the rears with some flares. Bu the stanceworks coilovers are some of the best and stiffest out there while still riding AMAZING.

Re: Hey Guys, I Am Back

Just wondering, why'd you get rid of the Sti?

Spun a bearing and replaced the motor. I was either going to replace the motor to stock and sell it, then buy something less expensive, outright, in cash... OR Keep the sti and do a full build with cams. At that point I was just tired of waiting for the car to be finished at the shop and went out and bought the m3 with cash. Drove the two of them for about 2 months then sold the sti off to a local dealer. Been DD the m3 since with just an intake and exhaust and has been pretty reliable and fun. The motor in this has lasted longer than any other car of mine, so now it is time to push it a little and finally swap the damn thing.
