    January 2018 Car of the Month: audiquattrot

    ***Editors Note: Living in SoCal I forget that the rest of the Northern Hemisphere is having a winter season, so I chose a wonderful iX and wanted some snow pics. Luckily, throughout his ownership it, he has made it quite special but it certainly lived up to its iX roots! His car is too nice now, but it has earned its custom plate of "snwmble." Congrats Anthony, you're the January 2018 Car of the Month***

    Factory options: 1990 325ix (5-speed swapped), heated seats

    Color: Sterling Silver

    Interior color: Houndstooth sport

    Engine modifications: Stock M20, Bavauto wires

    Exhaust: Magnaflow 16535

    Transmission: 5-speed

    Differential: 4.10 differentials

    Suspension: H&R sport springs, Bilstein HD shocks

    Wheels: 16 x 7 Genuine Alpina, 205/50/16 Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

    Exterior modifications: Full original color respray, iS lip with splitter, Euro trim, Euro grills, Euro rear plate filler, Euro smilies, red taillights, BMW motorsport door handles

    Interior modifications: Houndstooth sport swapped interior with rear custom ports + Luke box, MB quartz amp, Pioneer DEH-80PRS headunit, Digital volt meter, Alpina steering wheel, Alpina shift knob, E30 M3 shift/ebrake boots, custom gauge cluster


    Story behind the car: Purchased this car as an unmolested 1-owner rust-free automatic car from CT back in 2009 (my 4th E30), originally used as my daily driver & winter hauler (snowboarder here) for the last 9yrs. I've since put over 100K additional miles on the car over the course of my ownership, making countless trips to Vermont, Montreal & my daily 100 mile commute to work from NYC to NJ. I intentionally purchased this car as an automatic, to prevent me from modding this car like I've done with every other vehicle I've owned, but the car-guy in me couldn't help myself. This car was a true daily driver in every sense of the word, and the miles & memories it has brought me over the years are there to prove it! [/B]

              thanks fellas! Well the phone is the actual first cell phone I owned in the mid-90s. It powers up, and still have the charging dock for it, but it obv isn't hooked up to any cell service.

                          When I first got into E30s this was one of the Sterling E30s that made me knew I had to have one.

                          It is all in the details...Amazing car!
