Farewell to my E92 - quite a bit of pics

I had a knee injury earlier this year from snowboarding, and it came back to haunt me. I can no longer keep daily driving this car. Will be trading this for something new soon. I took some final pictures of how the car sits. I feel pretty sad that is has to go...I really liked this car.























p.s. I already started a local part out, please don't PM me for parts until I finish my local part out(will start a thread in classifieds)

Sad to hear about the accident. Hopefully you'll find something new that'll work just as well

Whoa, what is your wheel, tire, and suspension setup? That stance is just about perfect!

Sad to hear you've gotta let her go though. Good luck finding an adequate replacement.

I love all the mods you did to your car. Looks absolutely clean. Sucks to hear that you have to sell it bc of a boarding accident but health is always priority. Good luck

Thanks. I thought about the DCT idea, but I put a lot of thought into making the car work. Had I gotten a different colour, everything would have been different. That said, I wasn't ready to just jump into the exact same car but DCT. I'm also not ready to give up driving manual completely. I'm expectd to recover within a year.

BBS FI 19x9.5f & 19x10.25r, AD08 275/30/19f & 295/30/19 rear, Moton SS with KW CS camber plates + hyperco 800#f and 1100#r springs. I don't remember my camber setting, it was something along the lines of -2 f and -1.6 rear.

That's how I feel, I got plenty of time in the future to jump back into it if I want.

Thanks. The mod list is in the Canadian Classifieds thread that I posted. It's not a major injury but severe enough to be a nuisance for every day driving.

Thanks! If my old car and this car is an any indication, it should continue this way.

Though, recently I feel that I'm getting a bit old for this.

Haha, it never bothered me, but bothered the heck out of a lot of people. I decided to change it recently but never got to it before this happened.

Yeah, but that was stick too..

I'm quite confused at this point...I just dont know when I'm "good enough" to do DD stick again. Everything is on hold, and I will continue to feel like 3x my age.
