E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

euro 318's came with the "drive on water" system installed right ? so all i really need to do is make sure the flux capacitor is charged and i'll be good to drive it back to my house.

I've gone on a number of occasions. I have to be drunk though, I see no point in freezing my dick off just to ride across a lake rather than around it..

I don't ride on lakes much, it is really cold. I mostly stay in the woods.

Then its not as bad, but the only winter activity I reallyenjoy is snowboarding. Snowmobiles (in my experience) are too costly to actually own and enjoy

I never heard of it either, but I'm going cause it might be fun. I don't even have an e36 anymore, I'm bringing the 540i.

98% of the members replying in that thread are e36 people. stands to reason the meet will be over-run with them.

Very true

But you could still ride some nice roads and eat Taco Bell with us



Anywho, this dude is offering me cash + his 325e http://sheboygan.craigslist.org/cto/2074889740.html for my 2006 600rr. My asking price is $3800 for the bike. I know his car isn't worth $2800. He has reciepts for timing belt + install, front tie rods, control arms, water pump 2.5" exhaust from cat back, interior looks good, and its rust free.

What would you guys say its honestly worth? I'm texting him back and forth, I don't really see spending $2k on it.

id say reasonable price would be like 1400-1800 assuming its not a respray. its a 325e, early model and a 4 door so its not worth near 2800. without knowing alot more about the car i cant really judge too much.

need more then 1 e30 owner to get me to drive that far lol

^ yep lol i know! its running now but i hate it... and if i do a swap its not gonna be an M50

EDIT/UPDATE
just drove to pickup my little sis from her boyfriends house and learned that a
Chipped 1986 BMW 325e with a 3.46 LSD will go 134MPH (probably faster)
and this is adequate enough for a jacka$$ in a v6 camaro to piss his pants

Without seeing it I told the guy I could give him about $2000 credit for it towards my bike (assuming its in as good of condition as he told me it is), and he hasn't responded since. Guess I'm not gonna be back in the e30 club for a while

My younger bro still has the e30, and I take it out once and a while. I really love the 540i, but driving the e30 is still fun. I just want a nice, rust free, mechanically solid one. rust free is the big one, because I'm yet to own one that didn't look like complete ass
