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.

That's an E36. This is the E30 forum.

Maybe it's just an E30 with E36 doors, fenders and bumpers. Lotsa unique stuff

I finally got an e30

I sold my e34 a month ago, Then i was really interested into an e30 especially the late 325is. but i saw this flat black 325e for sale for $1050 and i just went for it. picked it up yesterday near L.A. needs some work but it will get me from work and home.
I already got a headlight, black grille. It needs the bumper and im looking for it. What do you all think was it worth it?

It runs pretty good actually i drove it from Palmdale, CA to Brawley, CA with one tank of gas, and has plenty of power, nothing to wine about.

Well, some of you that are on my Facebook as well will already know this, but i sold my E30 on Monday

but i got some proffessional (though free) photos done the weekend before, so here they are. i think this came a long way in my ownership

had i owned it a bit more, the next thing i would have done is fit a colour matched iS lip, and it would have had the Ebaich/Bilstein setup i have gathering dust put in it. But a buyer came along for it as is, so he can have some fun with it now.

one of the few E30s i have owned that i will actually genuinely miss

Photobomb

My current progress on my bumper swap/facelift.

Still need some work, but should be going in to the shop for paint in the next few weeks.

I am still trimming the rear bumper.

Smile My '87 325is

But... the view from the other side isn't as nice. I need one more 15" basket weave wheel (1179066) to complete the set! Any ideas as to where I can find one?

Looks nice in that color! What year is that one? It looks a lot like my blue '92 318i convertible.
