I have used vibrant tips in the past also. They were solid. Look very much like OB's.

For my turbo e30 and m20 vert e30 I went with Magnaflow mufflers that had dual walled tips.

Thanks guys. EOD, don't kid... I'm going to pay a healthy sum one day for an Mtech II E30. I WILL have that in my life at some point. Not sure how I'm going to break that one to the wife, but we'll cross that bridge (and increased life insurance policy) when we get there. He who dies having owned the most toys wins right?

I do miss that car. I was running megasquirt EM on it to control the large injectors and Mitsubishi Starion turbo (the small one, TDO512a I believe) I was running on it. Best dyno was 198rwhp and 220lb/ft. Only weighed 2500lbs. There's some vids of its dyno on youtube.

Funny story about that car. I sold it to an airman stationed in Del Rio back in 2016? Fast forward 3 years and Mouse and I are drinking, of course, while working on his X5. He asks about the car saying he wants another e30. So, I of course, text the guy who bought it from me. Fast forward 3 months and we are driving to Del Rio to pick it up. To further the awesomeness of that car... I am still the owner of that powertrain (so will need another e30 at some point). Mouse has opted for something to the tune of 430rwhp and 400ft/lbs after living with the 4 pot for a year. Something with pushrods. It's nearing completion at a shop about 10 minutes from me. I hope I'm the one who gets to break in the clutch.

And to be remotely on topic. Here's the vert with it's double walled Magnaflow muffler. Had long tubes on this one. It was slow as hell (automagic), but sounded really nice. I miss that vert too, especially with our current outside temps. LOL, that shot must have been before I did the oil pan and oil filter mount gasket. Got $9000 for this one when I sold it.

Had to sell these once the kids started getting bigger... and private school tuition became a thing.

When did you sell that vert? There's one exactly like it in my neighborhood that showed up a few months ago.

If you live in the Katy area... that's the one. Sold it back in early 2019. He moved to the east coast sometime last year though. So if you've seen it recently, different car. Same buyer also purchased a 1987 325e from me. He loved it so much he wanted the vert and kept asking about it. Sold his 325e coupe to a coworker for twice what he paid me for it and then bought my vert. This was the coupe. Had 400,000 miles+ on it after I was done with it. Bought it out of a field and restored it.

Thanks OB. We have had A LOT of BMW's. Owned most every E chassis after the e28 5 series. Some of them multiples. BMW's are a bad habit of ours, my wife is fully afflicted too which is why I get away with it. Plus, we have yet to sell a BMW for less than we paid for it. That probably helps too. Other marque cars have failed to meet that benchmark. Here's me at 17 with my first car. 1983 528e autotragic. Was taken too early by another kid in an Accord who rear ended me while I was pulling into a Taco Bell. He wasn't paying attention.

I hope you guys don't mind the image whoring. I haven't looked at these in awhile and this has been a nice walk down memory lane here with my daughter while she's at school.
