Welcome Classic Owners

Hello everyone

Just thought this would be a good time to chime in and introduce myself.

My name is CJ and I own a 79 E21 320i. Some of you may have seen it. Its Reseda green with the same good ol' M10, of course without a bit of modifications. If you have a classic BMW sign in and say hello

Heres a pic of mine

I second that! I think the Alpina rims look much, much better than the other chrome jobs however. I sold my 320i back in 1989, but here are a few old pics (note color ).






It had a Korman Stage 2+ (Stage 2 motor with Schrick 292 and 45mm Webers) motor, Alpina springs, Korman sway bars, bushings, etc... It was a fun car that I used for an everday driver so my Bavaria could stay in the garage.

Were those gauges on the passenger side a factory option or a 3rd party item? It's been a while since I have been in a 320i and don't remember those.

that gauge pod is aftermarket......altho that's the first 3-gauge pod i've seen mounted like that (usually they're right next to the main gauges, in the center of the dash).

btw, CSBM5, nice recaros' you had in there! i've never seen that type of cloth design in the centers like that.

here's my introduction :

classic owners please stand up

Whats up everybody.....

My name is MOE. I own a 71 green/white 02. In the body work stage. I saw you guys at the show. Last year too. Sweet rides. I live up by San Fransico. I've owned this car for about 7 years. Its my second 02 and my third BMW. It was a daily driver beach cruiser but it has slowly become a track/street car.

I'll try to post more often, good to see the oldschool still around.

thanx for the kind words fellas

its the E28 M535i kit (euro), i was very lucky to find it at the local BMW wreckers. someone else had their name on it but couldnt pay it off, so i snapped it up had it about a year before i put it on though, i think it was worth the wait

Mein Auto: 1982 Hartge H3
E21'aholic

I'm Matt and I'm a E21'aholic.
I've had this problem almost 15 years.
My habit-of-choice is a E21 Hartge H3 323i RS. Not just another E21 Hartge, but after 14 years of looking, I believe it's the only E21 converted by Hartge left on the Planet.
Having a one of one has it's beni's, I mean there's worse things a guy can be stuck with: like an E30 M3.
BTW, my car has the dogleg tranny, but it's attached to a 4:75 rear, which makes those long freeway drives feel like you've been sitting hours on those hard vibrating chairs at the fair while drinking a few Starbucks. The bright side is that falling asleep while driving isn't an option.

May aswell hook into this site,

My name is ben, i've just moved to canada/vancouver from sydney australia, and i have just bought a '83 320i... i'm mechanically inclined so i already have a few plans for the car(when the motor blows), most of which you guys would probably hate me for

It's currently stock, with an exhaust system & a little richer tune.... has later model wheels apparently!? (i have no idea currently about beemers) and that's about it... don't have photos, but they should be up soon

hope to get to know you guys a little better

cheers,
benny
