My very first E30. Bought it from a neighbor who worked on the car for 2 years. He decided to sell it due to a 993 project.

I installed a sun screen on the rear glass, Huper Optic C-70 tint on the windshield and side windows and customized 17" Rota Bellas.

I'm new here so please be gentle. Thanks!

Our first 1990 E30 4 door - Just washed and waxed

Just picked up for my son's first car. We had a $2500 budget and he came accross this. Never owned a BMW myself. He did a lil research online and found good things about this model and convinced me to go for it. Suprised him on his 16th bday. Picked up a deal from a great guy off CL.

You posted it about 13 days ago.

Although it's a clean car, not a fan of the wheels.
