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.

We do? i didnt know that. definately wont be new cars, the Jap import E36s probably make up the majority of that figure, they are everywhere! id disagree with your second point.. its just the ones that were high specced were looked after better probably. agree with the last one, lots of 2002s!

The red E30 is my mates, mint condition like it rolled off the production line yesterday, full UK spec was imported by the French Embassy here. The Hartge E30 is beutiful as well. just needs some Hartge 3-piece wheels! And the blue E30 on Borbets is really nice too, amazing camber with the low offset is awesome! And obvioulsy my humble beast!

guys are yall really that dumb? in no such way or possibility the gas station nor my car will catch on fire..

1) im like 15 feet away from the pump

2) i wasnt pumping gas

3) im just cool like that....Lol JK

4) so all that could get to the pump is smoke which we all know that it will not provoke a fire

5) trust me i know better...i wouldnt try to harm my self or any others including bonnie

i want you to try something. and ill just say this now, i wont let anyone do this without me trying it first (done it multiple times still same effect)

go get a bucket and fill the bottom of it with gas or some decently flamable liquid. get a buddy who smokes to finish a cigerette (and dont tell him whats in the bucket). before he puts out the amber tell him to throw it into the liquid. and watch the dramaic effect of nothingness. true even mythbusters proved it

but what starts those fires that everyone heres of, is all off static electricity. which everyone should also know, that a static spark from your hand can produce up to 500 volts. why do you think your hand goes numb after you touch that doorknob?

you guys are killing me with the snow totals. i live in the flipping mountains and we haven't gotten shipp for snow. It's falling now but only expecting 4-6". Skiing 2morrow regardless. E30dallas does get a rip for smoking near the pumps. Whether its safe or not.. it just invites cops. Although his personal pic makes me think that the regulars should post a pic with themselves to see the person behind the keyboard. We have all seen Steve, Anstead, Noexceptions (with sunglasses) and even our down under friend. I will post a pic of my 40 yr old corpse with my ETA after i can get her thru the wash.
