kamsmith Mackenzie and I went and did some #weimwork today. @narnya42 and I have been trying to find a weim of our own lately and it feels nice to take Mac out in the field and spent time with her. #weimaraner #weimcultclub #weimaddict #vscocam 6d

kamsmith Happy Thanksgiving from the hot tub. #thanksgiving #relaxing #upperleftusa 3w
  •   beero509 Bastard. Mine broke and won't be fixed til next week :( 3w
  •   kamsmith @beero509 to be fair, it's only ours for two days. But it's saltwater and it's fucking incredible. Nothing beats a soak and a drink. Especially on a midweek morning! 3w

kamsmith Barrel Aged fest at Twelve String Brewing Company, sampling 12 amazing barrel finished beers. #craftbeer #beer #spokane #spokanedoesntsuck #upperleftusa 1mon
  •   beersnobtv Nice!!!! 1mon
  •   kamsmith @beersnobtv dude you have no idea, one of the most surprising beers was a Sauza Anejo barrel aged mango Imperial Hefeweizen. It was seriously delicious. If you ever find yourself in eastern Washington, let me know and we will hook up some great beers. 1mon

kamsmith Today I replaced my BMW's tie rod. I learned that I wasn't the first to do so and the last person decided that red Loctite was an appropriate way to keep it from falling off. It was so effective it took two hours to remove the old one. So there's the new one. Yep. Pretty special. I'm gonna go drink a beer or three now. #e30 #e30diaries #BMW #shadetreemechanic 1mon
  •   beero509 Heat is the anti-loktite 1mon
  •   kamsmith @beero509 it would have been nice to know they used Loctite before the tie rod came off the steering rack. But that's how it goes I guess. 1mon

kamsmith @carcounsel ran into a Panamera at the local Trader Joe's this evening. Thought you'd appreciate a size comparison. It's almost the same size as the 2nd generation Outback parked on its right. #Panamera #perspective #porsche #whatwouldferrysay 1mon
  •   carcounsel You could hide an E30 in the hunchback. Then again when you get out of the E30's rear you ARE a hunchback. 1mon
  •   kamsmith @carcounsel true on both counts. The back of my E30 is anything but commodious. But when was the last time you sat in the back of a Panamera? I found it to be "cozy" for how... Generous it is... 1mon
  •   studio8791 So nice! 1mon
  •   carcounsel @kamsmith Actually as luck would have it: this past Friday. Cozy was the intent, head and leg room excepted! 1mon
  •   carcounsel @carcounsel To clarify. I think the E30 is perfect. It's as small as I'd go, E46 (or perhaps W124) as large. 1mon
  •   kamsmith @carcounsel I love the size of my E30, I have back seats if I need them, and a nice big trunk for putting things and stuff in. Though my old W124, now that had a trunk and interior space for days I really miss that car. Matter of fact I nearly bought an 86 300E from a family friend instead of the 318i. 1mon

kamsmith 4 weeks and the project list is getting longer and shorter as I mend this or that and find something else to fix. Another disappointing experience with the dealership. I guess my money as a DIYer isn't good there. Brakes are on the way as is a tie rod from autohausAZ. The airflow meter needs sprucing up, which will be fun. I truly can't wait to make this car better and take care of it. I love my little car. #BMW #e30 #e30diaries #vscocam 2mon

kamsmith I've had this car for three weeks now, it's still wonderful. Not perfect but I like it for all it is. 1. It's just a car. Nothing more and nothing less. When did BMW stop caring about making "The Ultimate Driving Machine"? 2. I was driving the other day, saw another E30 driving down the road and we waved at one another. How neat! 3. One is not enough... 4. It never gets lost in the grocery store parking lot. #e30diaries #e30 #bmw ps: I finally got a key from the local dealership. 😐 2mon

kamsmith Took the 318 to a hole in the wall muffler shop on the far end of town where the owner hooked me up with a "better sounding than stock" muffler. It was $80 well spent. I ended up finding out the proprietor lives near me and he invited me over "if you see a fire going out back". #e30 #e30diaries #bmw 2mon
  •   e30wheelman $80 well spent! @kamsmith 2mon
  •   kamsmith @e30wheelman WHAT?! I CAN'T HEAR YOU!!! 2mon
  •   carcounsel I'm almost be tempted to fork over the difference for an exhaust with some pedigree for your pedigree car. 2mon
  •   kamsmith @carcounsel I wasn't about to fork over $400 for an OEM muffler and twice that amount for a nice full exhaust is not in the budget for now. Besides, the only aftermarket part is the muffler itself. It still retains its tubular headers and resonator. It actually sounds very nice. It sounds like a BMW, nice deep smooth tone at cruise and a rasp at high rpm. 2mon
  •   carcounsel Glad to 'hear' it. If you're not a CCA member by now do become one. I'm 149196 if you need a referral number. I'll keep an eye out for used systems for $100 or less. 2mon
  •   kamsmith @carcounsel I was just talking about joining up with my girlfriend yesterday. I need to get on that, I'll be sure to use your referral when I sign up. And thanks, it would be nice to have another system on deck. I really just needed to not damage my hearing anymore. 2mon
  •   carcounsel @kamsmith Ah, in that case I see what you did there and why! Don't hesitate - the tech letters in Roundel alone make it worth the price paid. 2mon

kamsmith Curves ahead. I took the long way home tonight. Picked the least straight roads on the map and went that way. Accidentally found a really bad dirt road but that lead to some great driving through the farm lands of the Palouse. Aside from a scare with a suicidal deer, a great drive. #bmw #e30 And yes, the car was great. 2mon

kamsmith Week 2 of E30 ownership is coming to an end, and I've learned a few more things. 1. Yes, I still like it. 2. Everyone who drives it likes it. 3. I REALLY need to get a new muffler. 4. Everyone thinks it's cute. Everyone. 5. Single stage paint... No comment. 6. It's crazy good at sideways driving. Allegedly. 7. It's actually crazy good to drive in general. 8. my local BMW dealership, well... #e30 #bmw 3mon
  •   carcounsel You're one of my new favorite people. Just FYI. 2mon
  •   kamsmith @carcounsel Hey, thanks! That means a lot coming from a member of the motor industry (I assume). Keep up the good work, sir. I'll keep learning from my new-old car. It turned 23 last Wednesday, FYI. 2mon

kamsmith Things I've learned in a week of E30 ownership. 1. "What's that noise?" 2. There is such a thing as "too loud" 3. Yes, they are as good as you think. 4. No, there's nothing wrong with a 4-cylinder BMW. 5. If it didn't work and now it does, ignore it. 6. Yeah, I guess it is pretty cute. 7. Limited-slip diffs are as cool as you think. #e30 #bmw 3mon
