    From the link he provided (http://bmwforsale20910.vflyer.com/ho...home/107686008):
    Supersprint SS cat back exhaust
    UUC Street EVO height adjustable short shifter with delrin bushings and cartridge bearing upgrade
    Four 15x7 TSW (manufacturer) Hockenheim R (that's the model) wheels
    My understanding was that for the E28's and E30's the 525i and 325i were originally Euro models, because the 325i started in '84 in europe but only came to the States in '87, because they gave the U.S the 325E in '84 which was the lower powered equivalent. But I could be wrong.

    As for the parts I asked about thats my fault I have trouble reading I should have read it over a few more times.

    Also John in VA from your signature you've got a nice collection. Recently I was at Summit point helping out my friends who race Spec Miata (more like spec pinata) and I saw this beautiful 2002 turbo in the paddock that reminded me of your profile picture. Great looking 2002 by the way!

    The i was sold for the same number of years as the e models. ('87-91 and '84-88 respectively, excluding the 'verts which went to '93.) I'll bet a lot more of them were sold, too. I wouldn't call them rare by any stretch. The only E30 that's rare-ish is really the euro bumpered early model as there aren't many of them over here.
    2006 GMC Sierra 2500HD 4WD Duramax LBZ/Allison 6-speed
    2002 BMW M3 - Alpinweiss III/Black
    1999 323i KP/GTS2 - Alpinweiss III (Black Hood, other stuff)
    1990 325is - Brilliantrot/Tan
    1989 325is - Alpinweiss II/Black (S50B32)
    1989 M3 - Alpinweiss II/Black (S62B50 in progress)
