I’m recovering from a shoulder injury so instead of going to the gym at the crack of 5AM I’ve been practicing my driving. My car is pretty loud so I try not to buzz the same neighborhood more than once a week. Here’s a little driving video that I made in Juine so you can hear exactly how loud the car is.

A friend gave me his old shifter boot which I restored and re-dyed. Looks better than the red-stitched vinyl boot I had before. For some reason the shifter has always nudged into the edge of the console in upper gears (reverse, first, third and fifth) kind of making the console creak on impact but hopefully the pending shifter upgrade will fix that.

Shifter boot looks nicer than just about anything else in the car right now.

Until today I’d known of only 3 time-keeping devices for the BMW e30 – the “euro clock” mechanical clock and the digital 6 or 13 button OBCs. But today I found what is probably the worst clock possible: the no button OBC. The user sets the time on the digital clock using seperate hour and minute switches that have to be pressed with a pin or pen tip.
