European Experience 2019: The Summary

Beautiful weather, unbelievable European cars, seafood, beer, and a very broken E30 would summarize what was EUEX ’19. This past weekend, the ECS Tuning crew went south to Hutchison Island, Georgia for the European Experience show and, in classic fashion, I broke my E30 and had to trailer it home. Again. What a trip. 3:00 [...]

A Broken BMW E39 M5 is the Perfect Example of Why You Need to Change Your Oil

The BMW E39 M5 is inarguably one of the greatest ‘jack-of-all-trades’ cars ever made. It offered enthusiasts the unbridled power of an M-GmbH-developed S62 V8 that produced impressive power figures. Its chassis was nearly balanced perfectly, as it sported an almost dead-on 50-50 weight distribution. The suspension was a multilink front setup, which provided incredible [...]

How to Replace a BMW E30 3-Series Convertible Top

If you’re like me, you drive a convertible on nice days. If you are even more like me, you avoid driving on rainy days since it tends to rain more inside the car than outside. This is, of course, thanks to a convertible top littered with pinholes and barely sealed around the windows. Nothing is [...]

Pegasloth for the People

We all love the underdog story. The plot is one we can trace back to the Epic of Gilgamesh and the Bible, the David and Goliath story. Perhaps more relatable to us car folk would be the story of Takumi Fujiwara in Initial D, where an unknown kid from a mountain town in Japan bested [...]

More Work: Important Services Your Car Probably Needs

Show prep is killing me. I’ve reached the home stretch, the reassembly, which should be all downhill from here. Somehow, I have this sinking feeling it isn’t going to be that easy. With more parts on the way and my E30 still up off of the ground, I’m starting to feel a real crunch for [...]
