I took my newly accuired 87 325i 4 door SCCA autocrossing this last Sunday. 194,ooo thousand MILES and original struts/shocks. I changed the rear end to a 2:93 w/lsd (versus the 3:73 non-lsd). Lost .5 seconds (Checked before and after with a G-tech.) in the 1/4 mile, but figured the lsd was better for tight track use. It also has crappy custom exhaust after the stock cat with a Magnaflow muffler. Regular old all-season street tires too! Other than those few things, she's all original.
It rained all day so only 44 people registered. I finished 7th overall! Not bad in any car, let alone my tired old 325i. I beat everybody in the stock (no mods) classes and most of the people in the modified classes. Only the "old pros" beat me and except for the overall winner (he smoked us all....BAD! By over 2 seconds!) it was reasonably close. 2nd place was 55.312, 6th was 57.021. My best was a 57.744.

Another e36 M3 (that's 2 for us e30 guys
