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.

Ron was whining about his 1 ton 4 wheel drive only getting 9 mpg so I talked him in to doing an old time race car to drive to work and play.

He liked my ideas and recommendations and this is what he's come up with.









Here's the inspiration.

My 1989 325IX

This is my 1989 325ix where it belongs...in the snow This car comes standard with snow chains, all wheel d4rive, heated seats, and a ski bag that runs froom the trunk to the back seat. I live in sunny Southern Calif, but love the all wheel drive for those high speed curves. feel free to contact me with any questions, or advice if you are lucky enough to also own one of the best cars ever produced by BMW.

Nice car.

Cool looking neighborhood. Do those garages hold two cars end-to-end?

You may have done well with those rims. What's under the hood? Alpina stuff, hopefully?

Still assessing... All work done is in the glovebox, which is stuck close. Wanted to work on it and see what was done, but weather is not cooperating. I know the wheels are staggered 245 or 265 in rear and 225 0r 235 front. A soon as I find out I will post.
