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.
