Hey guys, new to this board... Just got out of an 89 rx7 t2 and into a 87 325is, this is the second iS ive owned, but its been several years since ive had one. Its in pretty good shape, ill put up some pics later.

Anyway, driving this car home from buying it i notice that it runs about 5k at 80 mph. I swear the 88 i had ran more like 3.5-4 for 80 in fifth. Did they change the gearing for these at any point, is the car actually supposed to run that high, or am i just insane?
