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

Get the basic engine tune up parts

Replace all hoses that look worn as well as belts.
Change your fuel filter air filter and a good oil change
New plug wires plugs possible dist cap/rotor
Maybe a nice body kit unless your going for original

No body kit, stupid unless from factory, Make sure maintenance is up to date. Brakes, cooling system, and suspension.

Thinks to do to increase value.
Restore interior.
Clean restore body
Clean and update engine
Quality suspension
