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.

Finally got around to decreasing the hood gap on the e30. Now it looks like how it was pre-m50 lol

im meaning the hood. I really dont care much for the ride height, as long as the wheel gap is even vertically as it is to the horizontal distance. have no time for opinions of people who whip a 30mm ground clearance, its just retarted

I have a quick question. I noticed that some e30 front bumper extend further than others. Does that differ by the year the cars were built or does it differ by the model 318i, 318, 325i... etc.

Looking to purchase an e30 for a project car sometime in the next few months and doing a motor swap. Hoping for a sedan.

I see... Then the pic must be deceiving, I think its the position of the sun that makes the gap look even bigger. Either way, at least its not to the point where everyone thinks the hood is open lol

yes it was actually in very good condition, and had that been the front i would have restored it. but no chance when an E30, or any 80s BMW for that matter, gets hit it the back.

its the exact reason i dont park my car on the street. aparently some kid "drifted" into it and bumped the car up the curb and into a tree (remember we park on the left hand side of the road here, which is why more damage on the right)
