    Woot! Thanks for GOTD.

    Took this pic last evening, and now have an excuse to share ;) R90's are back on, now with Michelin PSS. Painted front grille swapped out for a standard JCW grille.

    Thanks Mike. I was on the fence until you pushed me over ;)

    Sad, but true. Driving it a bit more this year but leaving the daily driving duty to the GP2.

    Ditto. My favorite OEM wheel on the R53.

    A few 2016 updates to the garage:

    1) Added a Chili Red interior - dash and doors
    2) Installed a JCW full leather steering wheel
    3) Installed an H-Sport adjustable rear sway bar (finally)
