The Smoking Tire
Episode 263


Chris Hayes published on

Joined once again by Betim Berisha of BBI Autosport we talk all things Porsche, Matt's ailing Mustang, the eery calm of pro drivers, why 996 projects are a headache and deep suspension geekery.  Plus Matt gives us his take on the new Lincoln Continental.

    Matt ship over your car to EricTheCarGuy, he own similar vintage fox platform Fairmont project car in final stage of finishing. He is as legit as they come with more than 10 years experience as mechanic and owns a shop. He has a youtube channel with above mentioned name for you to do a research before you decide. Give him the car tell him to put over 1000 miles on it and he will sort all the problems for the reasonable price with quality work.

    Hope it's not an input bearing in the transmission! Just started making noise on my R53.

    Speaking of which, I learned to wrench on my Mini when a shop quoted me upwards of $5k for various repairs last year. Including tools, it cost me $1500 to fix.....unless you're getting $40-50k of "BBI credit," it's not worth the trade.
