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.

I need one bad, no junk yards have one and a c*nt takes them out of the cars at my yard and ebays them. The one I needed was on my M50 but he took it before I pulled the engine. If you traded it for two bottle caps would you take 30 bucks for it?

It is the red label DME right? out of a 92-94 E36 or E34. 0-261-200-413 non-ews

Read the other post, a moron comes and pulls the ECUs to make ebay cash. He pulled it before I pulled the engine.

I don't really have the cash at the moment to drop on the ECU. I was hoping someone has one and wants to sell it. Please check your yards at stuff. I will pay for the part plus your time.

That is some of the best riding I have ever seen. Used to ride bmx dirt and a little bit of flat land but nothing like that. Impressive!

danny macaskill. one of the best street trials riders out there. i rode compitition trials for a year or two, but it just wasnt fun. the courses sucked. so i ended up goin to street. i ended my trials riding in janurary after i was trying to ride across a hand rail. lost the front tire and ate cold metal. but that is such a demanding riding style. it aint easy at all

It looks incredibly technical. I stopped riding bmx and picked up a dirt bike for a few years. Did a lot of freestyle motocross and a little racing. Started riding quads this summer and I ride snowmobile in the winter. It starts to take a beating on the body and sometimes you just have to calm it down.

i just cannot find it in myself to respect any rider who uses brakes for balance.



i prefer the smooth stylings and braklessness :


disclaimer: he has brakes in 2 or 3 clips.

also the difficulty of balance without breaks increases 10 fold.

watching videos is what made me learn manuals, barspins, tailwhips and even flat ground hop 540's till i over-rotated .. hitting the ground with your front wheel while spinning a 540 leads to face and pavement.

ive posted these before, they are about 5 years old. but are OK imo


turndown, hard to catch a picture when your fully clicked around, but its close enough




little hop =)


rail gap. notice anstead sitting on the stairs.


/end riding talk. these make me wanna go out and ride my bicycle, i havnt touched it in months. BMW took over

Breaks are stupid, they snapped when I was flying down a hill after I got my bike. There on out no breaks. My Brother uses odyssey brakes on his Metal dagger. I like no breaks and since mine don't have break mounts I don't run them. S&M black bike.

who else rides chainless ?

i custom made that driver delete here in my shop out of 6061 on the lathe. no it didnt effect my riding. i dont ride my bike places anymore so i had no real need for a chain, i scootered to every trick. it did make me a little moe scared of my tailwhips tho, its alot more comforing to know that when you put your feet back on the pedals they arent going to spin. withuot the chain if you put your feet on even a small amount at different times it will spin the crank and you'll get pedals to the shins. ringle zuzu pedals are nice for 16 removable pins per side of each pedal .. but devastation when you contact them to your shins. FTL
