Thorough. It’s an adjective I believe most folks imagine describes their build, and in ways, it often does. From wheels, tires, suspension, and brakes, to engines, drivelines, interiors, and more, it’s not uncommon to find a car that has “checked the boxes” and seemingly leaves no bolt left unturned; more often than not, it’s how to describe the cars on this very site.
It’s been a habit of mine, among many others, to get lost on the pages of Google, Wikipedia, and RacingSportsCars.com, enjoying the hidden gems of racing history scattered across the web. The first time I came across Dinan’s 540i, I was immediately captivated – something about its stature left a lasting image in my mind.
