God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

16 x 7.5 et25 should be ronal LS correct?

I just got back from driving my bimmer from san antonio to Omaha. Trip was rad, especially because I was sitting in my new sport seats and the engine was loving it's new 24# injectors. I also snapped some pictures of an alpina b6 that I saw at a bimmer garage, I'll post those in a bit.

check these out:





I asked the guy if he would ever be interested in selling it, as the tags had expired in 2007 so clearly it wasn't being driven. He said no way, and that he credits the car with his recovery from cancer in the late 80's. He is the second owner, having purchased the car in 1986 when it was a year old. He also showed me pictures of his m52 swapped track rat that he built in the late 90's. If you guys are ever around Oklahoma University I suggest you go check this guy's place out.

Nope! I like weaves, but would never rock them because they are so done to death on E30s these days. Ive never seen a modded E30 with them, but the style is relitively common, just not in E30 fitment

That Alpina is the sex. Anyone want the spoiler off it? lol

The Alpina is sick except for the spoiler.

I wish I still had a MF garage. I need to do some major work on my car and have no where to do it.

THIS SUCKS FAT FRICKIN NUTS!!
