I know this is an old post, but where did you find those seats? I've been looking for tan/beige leather seats for my '86 325e. I have no price preference.

stock ignition system can not keep up above 16psi and you'll get spark blowout even with the plug gaps closed up. Now I can run bigger plug gaps to have a nice idle and run around 20psi with no issues.

ohh i didn't realise you were running that level of PSI. i see wasted spark is popular on other E30 forums, but i cant really see the point with most of them. i can see the point for you though

Mein Auto: 1986 325es
tell me about the support bar for steering/suspension I see in the pic and the air filter assembly...both look good...what do they do for the performance, etc and where did you get them (Bavarian?)....I have a 1986 325es (purchased in 1988).

Thanks
