Brought it home on wednesday. Had a quick wash and since I had to move it from the showroom to the garage today, and the sun was shining, I just had to take some pics :playcar

Whow, thats a very nice e21!
Do you come to the Sharknosemeeting in Holland?
Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

Would love to be on SM2011, but it's very far - 2069kms.... one way :? I guess that would qualify for the "Long Distance" prize :wha

Yeah - I guess it could be doable.... If I plan the trip properly it might go... I'll have to see what my schedule (and wallet) says :-D

Absolutely gorgeous! Really beautiful colour and the car is in perfect condition.
Your steering wheel is as new, looks really good.

I too was going to ask if you were coming to the sharknosemeeting :cheers

This is just gorgeous. Actually there are alot of nice E21's about, but I have never seen one with this colour combination and wheel choice in such good condition! I actually think it looks better without the Alpina spoiler though :-)

I have purchased the same wheel from W&N, but still haven't fitted it...what am I waiting???...(well I was thinking of a full interior upgrade with leather all around etc...So I'mkeeping it in order to do all the interior together..
