These are both my old cars. Both now belong to coworkers. I loved them both, and both were sold out of necessity. If not for needing a bigger car for kids, I’d still have the GTI, which was and remains a great car with 170k on it. The 535 I sold to my uncle years ago because I needed a truck, and he later sold it to one of my coworkers, who has vowed never to sell it. It’s now well past 230k, and that’s the one I really want back. I need another E28 in my life, I’ve had two now and they just never fail to pull me in. I see these cars every day, but seeing the two alone and parked together, and the E28 freshly cleaned just struck me with a deep feeling of “goddammit”.
