My E30 M3

This area seems to be dead, maybe we can bring it back to life.

Here is my new car. The weather has not been good enough to get good photos yet.

The previous owner built it. Yes, I do have some things to sort out and change. I may get different wheels all together.

Weather is going downhill in OH. May be put away for a while.

Weight is the main reason. They do look though.

Nice ride and with S14.net down the M boys might venture here.

I just bought some E34 16x8 et23 for mine. Now I need some tires.

I like this wheel, 17 lbs. Triple black will look hot.



I am also looking for tires. I may go with the BFG KDW2 or Yoko Advan Neov AD07.

Looking forward to getting back out on the track with the E30!

Thanks.

I believe the wheels are ASA AR1s.

It is very cold and the roads are covered with salt. It's staying in the garage for now. The weather turned before I could get more pictures.

Mods include: suspension, exhaust, fly wheel, intake, injectors, chip, stainless lines, the list goes on....

It was built by the prior owner and I have some things to work out in the spring. The interior is in excellent shape. All the switches, cruise, heated seates are in working order.

A lot of views, but not many replies. Here are some more shots now that we actually had a nice day in Ohio.

Very nice!

You can get caps from TireRack for those ASA wheels... they'll even put the Roundel on them (a decal, I think)...

Caps are ordered, just not here yet.

Edit: Wheels appear to be Rondell #58

That machine looks incredible. Yes their era has long passed, but the real bmw enthusiasts recognize that as one of the best BMW's ever built. You are a very luck man.

Beautiful!!!!

These are 19"s? You must be somewhere flat, 17"s are rough in the mid-west (aka pothole hell)!

You track the 2002? That's sweet! I have a friend who races his 2002, he was my instructor at Mid-Ohio for my first school.

The Camaro is very nice too! I have a friend with a yellow '69.

Thanks for the compliments. I'm running 18" wheels on the m3. The '02 gets occasional track time but it's mainly a street car.

hey all. took a couple pictures of my '88 e30 this evening and thought i'd share it. i picked my m3 up last fall after dreaming about owning one for years and years. this one needs a little work, but i figure i can tackle these problems in the years to come. ;-)

i'm in orange county california. are you all in the midwest? if not... are you all going to make it to bimmerfest in santa barbara?

Roybe,

It looks very nice! I love Alpine White!

I may be the only one posting here from the Mid-West. Most of the E30 M3 posts are from the west coast.

I took my car to E30Fest in Columbus last weekend and won 2nd place. Even have a trophy!
