Nice ! what I would do is switch everything from the '87 to the '90. and sell the '87.

How's the condition of the '90?

How much did you pay ?

Well you got it right Rob

That is why i purchased the 90.
Transfer the stroker, suspension, and all goodies then sell the 87IS....

THe condition of the car is really good, everything is original except for paint touch-ups .

ACtually there is more....
I wanted to invest more in the setup but
the 87 has had a previous owner and some king of accident which has been fixed properly but i want a car that is all original and close to perfect body wise..."NO Bondo"

And yes i like the Euro style bumpers and the different rear lights on the 90 but the interior is also Original to this car ...so is the paint color....

THe 1987IS is still a great E30 for anybody to have, specially for a 16 17 year old car.
Now it has a complete leather interior with matching carpet and door panels, good paint job, solid body, and all...

I guess i am getting picky ...

I am having dificulty thinking of doing this because the 87IS has a great look with the bumpers and all, and it wont be the same with the 90 .

So i guess I will have a nice 1987 325IS for Sale soon......

Are you talking about Sly's car? Is it in the May issue? We don't seem to have it around here. Can anyone post a scan of that page?

Thanks!
