Our Race Car in Disguise

Update by Scott Lear to the BMW 325is project car
Oct 31, 2006

The interior is pretty craptacular, with the original leather sport seats well past their prime.
Our car is missing its lower chin spoiler.
The 325is is lowered with H&R sport springs (not race...) and pretty well-done Bilsteins
The 325is came with 15x7-inc BBS RS wheels. You can see the paint is pretty well toasted.

We picked up the basis for our Spec E30 project this weekend. It’s a 1989 325is that we purchased for a mere $1500. The good news is that it came with a set of 15x7 BBS wheels, the bad news is that the original 3.73:1 differential with a limited slip has been replaced with a 4.10:1 open diff.
