Hot and Humid with a 100% chance of Springs and a 5-speed swap

The summer heat wave has been blasting the shop again this week. And we’ve gotten some pretty cool work done! Last week we mentioned that this 1988 325 would be getting a 5-speed manual transmission conversion kit,  a clutch kit, and a 3.25:1 limited slip differential.  We’re happy to report that this car drives very, very well!  Here is the old transmission.

And a look at the new 5-speed shifter.  It looks as though it’s always been there.

We also took these old springs out of the 1988 325i cabrio

In favor of these brand new (and very pretty!) ones, which lowered the cabrio about 2 inches.

We were so excited to get this lowered cabrio back to its owner, that we (ok, me, Stephanie…I’m the one who forgot!) didn’t get a photo of its new stance…my apologies!

We do have some photos from last week’s Cruise-In though!
