Plug Wire Set Intall

A year ago when I started shopping for an e30 the first car I set my heart on was a red coupe with what is, to this day, one of the cleanest engine bays I’ve ever seen. A week before I got my cash together the car sold.

I forgot about that car until yesterday when I received my new Ireland Engineering spark plug wire set. My current wire set is part original to the car, part Pick n Pull scavenge and long over due for replacement. I almost ordered a set of blue wires but at the last minute decided that was too matchy-matchy and went with red.

The wires arrived last night and were installed without issue. They look great and I notice that the engine fires slightly smoother with the new wires (maybe just confirmation bias, I’m sure there’s an expert reading who will tell me I’m imagining it). Looking at my engine bay reminded me of that red coupe from so long ago. I went and dug up some pictures – even though I haven’t looked at these photos since I bought my car it’s amazing how many things are similar between the two cars, starting at the red wire set all the way down to the same rims!
