Parking lot zen

We got in some quality cone-crushing time recently! Autocross may not be track time but it’s still loads of fun, and perhaps more importantly, it marked our first time giving the E30 a proper shakedown on a closed course of any kind, which felt great— we are happy to report that the 22-year old Bavarian pile held up with no discernible harm done. Lots of fun with its relatively low curb weight and complete absence of electronic nannies, but man is it down on power. In hindsight, we should have tried downshifting to first – yes, first – for one slow corner in particular that felt positively anemic taken in second. Ha.

Apologies for the poor quality and low number of shots from the mobile phone.

Surprise, surprise: our favorite car there. And yes, that includes the Boss 302 and the Gallardo Superleggera. Do want!

  1. Looks like you had a great time! My sister drives a very clean white 325 super eta 2-door. Although the suspension is a bit floaty, the car has lots of torque and is great fun to drive around town. Need more pics!

  2. 325i down on power? Ha! Try a Miata next time :P Glad you had fun though!
