New Shark owner!

After a year and a half of driving a boring Honda civic, I found this amazing shark! No rust, euro bumpers, 5 speed, Recaro seats!! It needs so little to be a real pristine classic! Never considered buying an e24 because of its rareness. I expected a tighter handling but it just looks amazing

I agree! And, yeah, the color looks to not be a factory color. Put the 635 back on the trunk, to me. If you push down on top of the front fender & it rebounds once, ok. If it rebounds twice, it may need Bilstein HD shocks. Repeat at the rear.

I checked the VIN and yes it was repainted! The badge is on now I tried to push on the 4 corners when I went for the first test drive and it was very bouncy compared to my 540 with M sport suspension, I'll give it another try to see if it rebounds more than once.
