This is an awesome car! The E28 is definitely no featherweight but it definitely knows how to use its weight to its advantage. I have already had the chance to take this car all the way up to Nashville for a drifting event at Nashville Super Speedway and it did EVERYTHING I asked and then some. With this being my 5th BMW I've owned, it makes me wonder why it's taken so long for me to come to my senses and start drifting one of these.

Financial situations notwithstanding, I sure hope that this car will stick around for a while.

Nice! What sort of suspension setup are you using? Assume it's running a LSD, also?

Yeah it's got an LSD from a 535is, other than that, it's completely stock quarter century old suspension. Nothing has been revamped or replaced yet as I like to run cars as I get them and modify from there :) Thank you so much for the kind words, it really means a lot!
