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

Exclamation Bmw e30 325i 1989

Hi, i've changed the fuel regulator, the gaz pump, the line are new and there is no leaking. When i turn the key it takes 5-10seconds to start. It crank for long time and it runs good after. If i stop the car for a short period, it start fast. But after 30minutes or more. Hard to start again. It's weird cuz during the winter when it was super cold, the car started directly, faster then any new car, even below 20celsius.. If you have an idea about what is the problem help me please! now i check about the crank sensor..

Sounds like the fuel pump or FPR is allowing the fuel to drain off.
So after a while of standing the system first needs to be filled again.
Or the idle is set too lean...

You may have an injector leakage problem.
