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.

I finally found seats but I had to swap the interior from beige to black. Found this interior on Craigslist for $300. Also got amber fog lights at wreckers for $15. Before and after pics.

I think I read somewhere that in Germany, it was illegal to drink anything in your car. It was distracted driving or something. That's why there's no cup holders I think it's kinda ridiculous too. But I can always buy a cup holder to put somewhere

Mein Auto: 1990 325i
My E30s

The red one is my daily driver 1990 325i. I snatched her up last month for $900. I'm in the process of getting a new bumper. The white one is a 1985 318i with a seized engine. I got her for $400 back in April.

kamotors props on the Red Turbo E30. That looks sick! Hoping to do something similar with my 325i.
