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.

Wheels painted black because of mad oil stains.
Bilstein/H&R sport, Remus exhuast, front bmp design aluminum strut bar (i know it's not great support,upgrade later), rear bumper temporary also.

the damage is limited to the very front of the
body. Ye, maybe the frame rails are bent
but I doubt to the point where somthing wouldn't bolt up
or would noticably affect the ride.

Cool

Ye, the rad support Is bent.
It unbolts though right?
I was just going to bolt another one on,
basically replace every bodypart that bolts on.
I can get all those parts for $300-500.
And damn, bent frame rails nevr crossed my mind
Well, never planned on making it handle like a class A
race car. Just a nice 4dr. So I'll leave it at that.
Too bad this one can never be as nice as I wanted it to be :/
Personally the only e30s I'd drive would be an m3 or 325 4dr.
So I WILL just throw the stock bumpers,
(keep it as my workhorse)
so I can save up for an e30 m3
And my bad, will do more research before hand.
I don't have a pc, just a phones web broswer (slow as hell) and
I'm not an e30 whiz YET haha.

Anstead610, lol@the red car huh? Fair enough, for now.
90% of the crap on there now, is temp. and came with it(sound familiar?)
Not tryn to outdo your ride with my 4dr.
My m3 will though
jk man! to each his own.
At least my 4drs not like that riced out bimmer
with the huge f-ing wing on it you guys clowned.
poor guy.
Some of you guys can be harsh!
He said it came like that!? :/
It's one thing if he left it like that
because he actually thought it was cool.

It actually snowed on Monday in Little Rock. Usually, we just get a whole lot of ice!

The snow covers up the bad paint. I like it.

Mein Auto: 325
Hello everyone. I have a 1988 325 2 dr BMW & need to bring the car up to current maintenance. I bought the car Aug 2008 & I still have a leak everyime I change the Oil. A friend told me it could be a gasket before the oil filter is secured. My friend is saying that it is leeking because of a missing or used gasket. Has anyone had this type of problem? The other situation is my hoses, which I have not changed, the top hose is bulging at the clamp area, just a bit & it seems to be slighty dry. I have worked on Ford's, VW's but not on BMW's & could someone give me some recommendations? Thank u in advance.

thats the answer I would expect from you. They are $15 new, they keep mud off, I wanted them, I like them, and they are flexible. They look cheap because they are cheap, go figure.
