I have been working on this car for 4 years. The first blog post was 2/26/2016. At that time I had already spent some 6-8 months repairing rust. Last night the last hurdle was cleared. The custom driveshaft was picked up by my lovely wife. In one of the few times something worked first time. This video is the first time since I've owned this car that it moved on it's own!
On to the thoughts about driving. So far only up to about 50 mph. The 320i rack with stock 2002 steering arms is extremely slow. It really takes your attention to keep going where you want. The eibach springs ride very nice. The LE5 pulls like a train! I knew with 180 hp it would be reasonably quick, but it feels much quicker. Shifter works well for me and the EFI has been near flawless.
