I love those. Wonder what parts availability is like? That looks like a very nice example.

Apparently IDParts doesn't carry anything for it

Heads are unobtanium, filters are expensive. The motors are fairly common in Europe but only 1500 came stateside and only with the automatic.
Everything else is pretty much standard e28 so BMW has parts.

It's not a TDI. Although in fairness we do have parts for indirect injected diesels, but I think only Mercedes.

We do have these in our parking lot today.

No, it isn't. Koni brought 3 BMW 330i and two Mustangs yesterday for comparison drives to test stock suspension against their new Koni Special Actives. The third BMW had Koni Sports on it. I drove all three BMWs (didn't drive the Mustangs) and the Special Actives are pretty amazing. They fix what I don't like about the stock dampers on my 335d. I think some of those are going on my car soon.

Good stuff! the 335d suspension leaves a bit to be desired. We got lucky and found some used ohlins locally, blown away by how smooth they are.
