    Not even close.

    I cant beleive how long it has taken for these pictures to upload.

    Here we go.











    And the best bit


    Its a 1993 325i coupe. Leather interior, msports steering wheel, original Sony headunit and 10cd changer. Its still has the original first aid kit, jack and 90% of the original tool kit. 120,000 miles. FSH, a few recipts, toad immobiliser. It has a few minor cosmetic bits that need seeing to but nothing to worry about. Its had all its rear bushes replaced recently (a problem i believe).

    All for the princely sum of 1850. A good deal i thought.

    rear bushes are a bitch, subby mounts and t bushing tend to go at 100k ish. saves a few hundred.

    Nice, certainly doesn't show it's age. Probably not the most popular thing to say considering what website this is but I'd go for that over 2k worth of 200SX (although after 8 years of owning S14A's I still love that model. )

    I thought it would have been similar to my old 14a buts its nothing like it.

    As a comparison of standard cars this feels a lot more planted and far less twitchy. There is minimal body roll through the twisties (although i have only driven it about 30 miles home - am going to try some of the local country roads tomorrow morning ) and power delivery is instantaneous.

    I love it so far, it took me a while to get that with my 200.

    You can't compare a 320i to a 325i Mark

    However, I do have to say...

    E30 325i = Win

    E36 325i = FAIL

    E36 328i Sport = Win, though.

    True, it does feel heavier than the 200 (although i believe there is only about 100kg in it). Dont forget this is an auto. It has an extra "gear" over the 200, the kickdown is sharper and there is no turbo lag to deal with(easier in a manual).

    I like it and it will be going on a diet just like my 200 did.
