owner of the touring (he hates it being called a wagon LOL) screen name is Gnome, I don't know what else he can upgrade, except to get a MANUAL GEAR BOX!!!
(Cough) Yes, Rich is right, its the Touring or "Gnome-Mobile". Progressively faster runs but could really have used an LSD and 6MT to quicken the response in the corners- looking into the swap sometime soon I hope (Jay?).
P.S. My fronts were almost gone which provided some drama during lapping, my tire shredded itself on hwy 115 on the way home.
Well, it went out with a bang, just in time for the winter swap.
I already had an e30 black chopped ready to weld for a trailer last year but had no time and no more space so I sent it to the wreckers. In a different time I would do this but just no time for now.......

Plus I was enjoying great fuel mileage........not so much now. 450km/tank is unacceptable. I was doing 650-700km/tank prior to it springing a leak.
I'm in the same boat. After I took my car out of storage at the start of the year the gas tank had a hole in the top. As a result my fuel mileage went down considerably as well, partly because of spillage in hard cornering, but mostly because the evaporated gas vapour is always escaping from the tank. I'm planning on fixing it in the spring though.
