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.

Mein Auto: 325i
Here's my 325i 1990. I bought it used and it desperately needs a new paint job and new carpeting, but even so, I'm loving it! It's the first car I bought myself, so I'm feeling overwhelmingly in love with it.

1988 Super Eta, original and clean!

It's just so damn perfect. One owner since new, zero rust anywhere. Minty interior with full power everything and it all works. So good I can love an auto trans!

Mein Auto: 1987 325is, 1998 318i
Hello all, this is my first but I am a long time reader. I just recently purchased a black 1987 325is sedan 5 speed. I paid $1200, it has all new suspension all around, new timing chain, thermostat, water pump, clutch, heater core, and transmission. A friend of a friends dad owns a German car dealership and has owned the car for 10+ years and has put a lot of money into. He tried to give to his son but he had no interest so he sold it for cheap. (Lucky me) it has 110k miles and no known issues. The interior looks new compared to most e30s I've seen. It has been resprayed black which is the original color but it could better. I plan on buffing the hell out of it. I'm in the process of cleaning the car, including the whole undercarriage so I can put some black spray paint down on all the components under the car. There is almost no rust, but his son did paint the wheels black and blacked out the tail lights which will all be changed. I'm ordering some coilovers this week as well as some bigger wheels and tires. As well as changing the bumpers to euro bumpers instead those db's. I'm in love with this car and can't wait to get the parts on it. I'm going to use it as a daily and just enjoy it. I think I got a good deal, and I hope you all enjoy it. Sorry for the terrible pictures I will post more soon. Thanks! ***55357;***56397;

Ya I messed up uploading those terrible pics. Those rims are terrible, I agree 100%. I posted them for sale but I can't decide what should replace them. Thanks for the input!

I think the wheels would be fine if silver or polished. Just respray them.

Ya the previous owner told me they are factory BBS wheels. He claimed they are really desirable for e30 fanatics. Idk if there is any truth to that or not though. I'll try to get some more pictures today. Thanks for the input, I may have too try a respray.

I know the feeling, only I happen to know for a fact the last owner of my '91 325i was a fatty who gave the seat a permanent ghetto lean because he's now my brother in-law.
I think the fatty bent seat syndrome is common in these years.
