love

Just got back from a drive in my '85 635. This is a great driver. I've got lowered H & B springs and Bilstein stocks with a hand made short shifter and I got to say, even with the notchy gearbox you get into the rhythm of the car and it just works. I've also got a Sport model 2003 540I, really sweet shifter with lots easy drive, but the 635 has such good, earthy feedback and you just feel like you're driving one of the great classic cars. Maddeningly expensive to fix considering the horsepower, still, great car.

We bitch a lot on this site, just thought I'd post the REASON we bitch about these great cars.

Roscoe, you're preaching to the choir. You don't have to convince us the E24 is special.
