A few months ago, I was finally able to convince the wife that she'd be much more comfortable in an 80s 3-Series BMW than in her 2002 Corolla. When the right deal came up for a 1991 325i sedan (read: four-door), I jumped on it. With the sale of the Corolla, I even had some parts money for the newly acquired E30. I now have a fully German garage. All is right with the world.
For updates on the E30 project, see HERE.
Don't worry; I'll be getting back to the 1600 soon enough.
