thanks

When we were deciding whether to buy a QV or wait 6 months for a 328, a deciding factor was the thought that they had added a lot of plastic crap to the interior and around the bumpers to try and modernise a classic shape.......23 years later I am glad we bought Horse.

An Aust 328 being unleaded with a cat was the other reason.

Your 328 does look to be in very good condition, do you think you'll keep it long term?

Why such a long face?

i remember thinking the same thing back then. of course, i prefer the looks of a 308 significantly (inside and out btw)....but as far as the wheels are concerned MY opinion is that they convex ones suit the more modern look of the 328.

i have no intention of selling any of them at this stage......which is probably just as well considering where the market is for those cars at this stage!

today i had the steering wheel spacer fitted and now it's pretty much a perfect fit for me. i'm very happy with it.

I love my car. Buy your own

50mm is a huge spacer.


Did you bend the stalks so you can still reach them without letting go of the wheel? Or, if you're sitting that far back to need a 50mm spacer, can you even reach the stalks at all?

I usually put 25mm on, and then bend the gear lever a little bit (10-15mm over to the left) to aid knee room. This way, you don't need to bend the stalks, which is a risk as the aging plastic don't like it often!

yep...i've always had the same in the 355.

no i didn't.

yes i can....easily. i just like the steering wheel closer than most.

i wouldn't dare bend any of that stuff. plenty of leg/knee room....steering wheel perfect for me now.

like i said...same as 355.

having said that, i put a 25mm spacer on the 308 and it's spot on.

Have you forgotten that people with long legs that require the spacer probably don't have short stumpy fingers?  :D

lol

true! i have no trouble reaching the controls....actually, i always thought they were too close to the steering wheel...now there's a greater gap btwn them.
