        After all, this is a great thread, I use so little time over this forum I had no idea what kind of car some of you were driving.

        I might do a list of my cars too on better time.

        BMW 320i 2d 2.0 m20 -88
        BMW 325i Cabriolet 2.5 m50 -88
        BMW 316i touring 1.6 m40 -90
        BMW 320i 4d 2,2 m54 -01


          So here it is.

          1989 235is.

          Stainless long tube headers w/ custom heat shield.
          Dinan chip
          K&N in box air filter (best desing for cool air)

          Dinan cat back exhaust.
          LSD 4:10
          Manual swap (cant stand slush-o-matics)
          Z-4 shifter
          Bilstine struts and shocks

          M three spoke steering wheel
          Crappy headliner :(
          water leaks. (I hate it)
          Fast and the furious trilogy.
