Thought I would introduce myself to the forum. Name is Tom (turn 57 in about 20 minutes) And I live in some of the best driving country in Washington State. I have been absent from the BMW scene for about 18 years but I am now back and wearing a smile. The new toy is just a '95 325is but it will be my project until I locate the right E30 'is'. This car has reminded me how slow my Audi quattro's are but a couple will stay with me. I cut my teeth on the 2002's of the 70's and have quite a history with the. My firs new car was a '72 2002 ($3300 out the door) and since then six 2002's, one 2000tii touring, one of the first 320i's to hit the states, a '78 528i and a euro 323i. All were fun and I expect a lot more fun in the future since the Audi's will be taking the back seat for now. I will follow the forums and hope to learn who is who and eventually be able to contribute good information for those in need.
