Well, I guess I'll start. 

Not sure what to post, but I suppose I could give a bit of background info on myself and my car. I'm a freshman at MSOE right now, mechanical engineering, and I'm originally from Madison where I met Chris a few years ago and was introduced to the forum. 

I've got a 1989 325i vert that I've slowly been bringing back from neglect. It had the rear suspension and driveshaft components refreshed/replaced last winter, and the head rebuilt with new cam/rockers/valve springs in June due to a broken valve spring. I've done a lot of interior refreshing as well, along with new tires and some other little things. 

Oh, and it's Alpine White, which seems to be a thing around here. 

Not sure where I'm going to go with it from here, probably gonna refresh the front suspension, maybe a manual swap, and maybe spring for a x-brace, but who knows with college and all that.

I sometimes see 100+ online users and the threads they are viewing are pretty old and buried so I wonder if they are maybe bots. On the other hand, we have had a few people from across the country join up and comment/PM about certain topics that they found doing a google search which i think is cool

Some of us like lurking........ I think I am on here 20 times a day from tapa talk and barley posts anything anymore. Not really sure why I'm not very active anymore.

Yup!  Funny thing is, the label in the door says 535ia, but it's manual.  If you run the VIN, it's manual.  So why is it a 535ia and not a 535i?

"That label (weight & wheel label) should say "535i/A USA" ...the model number has a " / " between the "i" and "A" which indicates that the specs are for the manual AND automatic models imported to the USA...not that your car should have an auto tranny."

Holy Shit, this is it!  This is the line I've been looking for for so long!  Thank you so much.  I knew there was an explanation for it, but I never could find it.
