Not a great picture with my phone on a cloudy day. Just had my Style 10s with new Kumho ECSTA 4x 205/55-15 mounted. Needs a slight drop in ride height and the is front spoiler put on.

Isn't that sort of like saying "Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?"?

ANY E30 in good condition is a good find, 2 or 4 doors.

Yes. obviously my E34 is up there too ...

...but as far as E30s go, there is a full motorsport 325i Touring here in nz in alpine white, that would be my favourite, and as the story contiunes, i was going to swap my 316i plus cash for it, but decided im better off not having two projects.

my second fav E30 wagon would be this blue M3 replica. i know its not the real deal, but a real M3 was chopped up to do it, so it must be pretty accurate!

Mein Auto: 540i
Just picked up 92 325i convertible

Hi guys,

I just picked this car up a couple days ago. I did quick pics using my phone. She needs a bath. not sure how many miles she has... odometer stopped at 156k. Manual trans.... She sat for 2 years but runs really good. Just gave her an oil change and working to get the timing and water pump done next. The convertible doesn't work right now, but it will by the time I will need it next year. I'm not sure which is more fun to drive my e30 or my 540. Very excited.

Very nice find. You know you're enjoying the 5 speed e30 more, don't lie

Haha, thanks! I do miss the power of the 540 but not the gas mileage and the 5 speed just gives more of the driving experience. I can zip around in the e30, very fun . Oh and the odometer must have been stuck from sitting.... it fixed itself last week. I can't wait to get all the maintenance stuff out of the way so I can start making her my own.

I believe the front air dams only came on the "S" and "X" models. have you done a vin search to see for sure what you have? Im guessing it is just an "i", and somebody added the dam.

Anyway, nice find...I too have an Alpine vert, and you know what the say...once you go white, you dont come back!
