E30 Media

To kick off the E30 Media sticky, I converted some images to 1920x1080 resolution, appropriate for desktop wallpapers.

Please add pics and videos that are E30 related. No NWS content.

If you have not yet registered at bimmerfest.com, we ask that you do so before downloading these images.

Thank you for the new background images, Mark, and thank you for posting those vids, Steve.

The E30 is what all actual driving enthusiasts are after. It's an unpretentious machine, quietly capable of spectacular feats of handling. It's light, simple design is rugged enough to run against $400k rally cars, but on the street it' communicative chassis delights even the most disinterested driver. It really is one of the world's ultimate driving machines

Very nice, but for some reason the paint/color looks better from the back.

I've heard Norway Brown and Makkaresh (spelling?), but the Root Beer color from House of Kolor is the same I do believe.

Well that sucks, I didnt reall pay attention to the date, just thought it was old lol

I'll probably still wanna do it that color, I dont really care to fit in with the "it" crowd. Hopefully they'll move onto another color by spring If not, I suppose I've always got the flat blue option left..
