    Happy New Year - Subframe Edition - E36 Z3

    Got to work for the New Year, work days long enough, decided to tackle this in the garage rather than at the shop. Can be a little more patient with it then, and have a drink or two while working to ease the pain Click here to enlarge

    Since this is a chassis/frame issue rather than engine moved to Z3 -> E36.
