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.

^ after the frenchs and the rattle canned car, Steve said to get some class, and I thought you deliberately posted a pic of your car on bottle caps to show you had class... Must have misinterpreted the context lol

Mein Auto: 1988 325ic Schwarz
Find red 325IC

I found this 1990 for sale in my condo complex July 2011. I offered $1000, 1/2 what was asked. The old lady accepted and gave me the keys before I paid for it. It had a flat tire and dead battery and the seats were shot. 171,000 miles and original paint. The interior was covered in dust. The oil cap, covered in dust, looked like it was not touched in years. After a new battery, front sports seats from a coupe for $225 from Seattle, I have not found convertible seats yet, distributor, rotor, plugs, oil, oxygen sensor, air filter, gas filter, it runs like new and passed emissions testing. The usual things are broken: glove box latch, antenna, OBC light, muffler, peeling clear coat in places. It runs better than my black 1988 325IC. The seats look like they were slashed with a knife and the drivers seat, dyed from white to beige to grey, had the seat frame intentionally cut through on each side. I think i lucked out and scored a deal.

your wheels are way wrong offsets and are sinking into your wheel wells. kinda like how the titanic sunk into the ocean after it hit that little piece of frozen water.

if the 3rd one is on the way. 3's a crowd, sell one of the first 2. you cant have too many cars, but you can have too many kids.

Mein Auto: E30 325i, E30 M3
Hi! I'm new to this board, and starts with some "showoff".

First, my E30 325i. Stroked to 2,8 liters, ported head, performance camshaft, E34 535 fuel injectors, Sebring headers and 2x2,5" exhaust. It will get standalone engine management system and throttlebodies from a euro S50B30. Just run 6 pipes and filters. Think it will make a good sound!


On coilovers.





The black hood is on the car again. The rusted one was just to see how the people i drove by reacted.

Then my second car.
It's an E30 M3 Cecotto. Car #180/505.

My "New" 325is

Here are some pics of my newly acquired 1989 325... I had to part with more than I wanted- 6.5k, but the car is very clean, the engine compartment and interior are like new, not to mention the rad rims.
