What more to ask for? Pure sickness. And she sounds great too! I absolutely love those Cobras. Pure finess with simple muscle. The 325's also will remain a classic vintage german car. That chassis is probably what set BMW apart more than others, more for my generation. Love them both.

Too right about the Cobra's sound. I'd like to get the full stainless exhaust for my 325i, with the 6-branch manifold.

The BMW Classics are now gaining price. A good 325i Sport, ranging from $8 - 15,000. I was up at Sytner BMW the other week and the sales guys came over to look at mine. Forgot about trying to sell me a new model. Hah ! that put a smile on my face.

And there's also the Alpina C2, 2.7 litre, and the awesome B3 3.5S in the E30 M3 Chassis. Gob smackingly beautiful. Take a look at the white one on the link:

Is your 325 dropped a bit ray? Looks like it in the photo. If so what route of suspension did you go with? On my Jetta I had it was Neuspeed springs. That and the VR6 drivetrail up front and a lot of ice in the trunk is what really brought that car closer to earth.

Here are some shots of that Jetta. Up front, a VR6 drivetrain which weighed in about 110 lbs heavier than the stock 1.8l drivetrain:



And in the rear, another 150 lbs of car audio gear, plenty enough to hold the car to the ground in the back end:

Yeah, my 325i has the Eibach Sports springs. Dropped 30mm, which improved the handling without making it bumpy. Though have to keep the tyre pressures right. A pound or two over and it thumps and rumbles. Using 31psi front, 33 rear. Have my own pressure guage with accurate scale, and compressor to make regular checks.

Your Jetta is another fine example of clean work. Mine is getting pretty old and taken some bad weather, though got it well spray waxed underneath. Had to have some patching done inside the arches, but now clean and ready for the next 1/4 million miles. I've only a modest HiFi as mostly I enjoy to hear the tuneful exhaust ! Great in tunnels when I drop a cog and boot it !
