decisions, decisions.
Went through similar thoughts when doing up my car.
Was thinking of going all Monoposto on it.
Ended up pretty much stock (replaced the single carb 1300 with a 1600 twin weber and 5 speed box not for speed, but to make it more driveable.)
As long as you don't go all dumped with the rear wheels at stupid camber, just get it into a condition that you can enjoy it

I Ride: The original
I've never owned a decent car in my life - they've all been shit.

Much as I fail to get excited over a mobile phone - they bore me.

(Actually, I have been known to get excited over a mobile phone, but I find the iPad is more practical for that sort of thing).

Modern cars bore me, or rather, fail to excite me.
The only ones that don't are when I've driven pre-production prototypes. And not for the driving experience itself.

Yours has the latest n/a 3.2right? I wish I didn't need to go diesel or I sure as fuck would have that in my 3 series. Lucky you
Yeah, the z4m is 3.2...and i now have added SuperSprint Sport exhaust, and it is quicker....my old 2000 M5 was great fun too....

but my Bug still has a special place in my heart...

yeah, really my only concern is because there are not many people who have fully original bugs. mine is bone stock - but i can't even roll with it on the highway...which i can't complain too much....but sure as fuck makes it difficult to go to any meet-ups or car shows.

my dad talked about maybe throwing a turbo in it, he was laughing his ass off when he suggested it.

we'll see. i still have a piss pad under the thing...fuckin' oil dripper.

and dude - fuck camber.

Could you tow/trailer it to shows? Seems a shame to 'rat' it if it's original
