Snapped 2 pics today of my car next to my neighbor's 325is (I thought it was a 325e, but it turns out it was 325is... it has 64k miles on it).





My car looks enormous next to the E30. :D

I used to park my 323Ci next to a 635CSi in the garage, and the two cars were about the same size.
Are you shure about that?

The E24 has always looked longer to me :dunno: Maybe it's just an illusion due to the very sleek body. It certainly weighs quite a bit more than the E46...

No, the 635 was slightly longer, but not a whole heck of a lot. I remember one morning specifically when I parked right next to it thinking to myself "I've always wanted a 635 but the car I've got is almost the same size and 15 years newer."

There was an M6 and an E34 M5 at the autocross yesterday; both are great, classic cars, but neither one is an autocrosser. Both looked a little woozy out there on that tight track, and the 3.5L six (by modern standards) just doesn't have a huge amount of poke relative to their weight. It's amazing how much faster the E36s were.

Oh, and just FWIW, for a little while fast-time-of-the-day was held by an E46. ;)

Alee-

If that guy ever wants to sell that car, EMAIL ME RIGHT AWAY.

I've been on the lookout for a white E30 325is for a while. The "s"s are more rare than I would have thought. BTW, the "s" stands for SPORT.

I still miss my old E30 and would loe to pick up a clean copy. Typical used prices are $3-4K, so it's not like it'd be a huge investment. Parts are relatively cheap too.

You'd love this car too... it's pristine. :D 5M, for your pleasure.

I'll be sure to think of you if he ever wants to sell it. Big if, cause he loves his E30. :D

Any time I see the words "My xxxxx looks HUGE..." can't help but chuckle.

Sorry.
