    I have a 1986 325es and am looking for an axle back exhaust system for it that won't break the bank, but with good quality. Any suggestions on brands or anything?

    Hello everyone. I want to perform an engine swap on my e30 in the future, but I need advice as to which engines are within my budget (~$2,500 or less) that produce a decent amount of power. Please give me all ideas or advice.

    Hey guys, I have two unused clutches for an E30. They're both stage 3 and good to about 500 ft lbs of torque. They were mounted and removed but never used. Asking $200 + shipping for each clutch.

    Hey guys. I have a 1987 325ES w/ manual transmission and lots of miles. On Christmas eve of last year I was driving down the freeway at about 70 mph when the engine stumbled twice in about 2 minutes. Then it completely lost power. I pulled over and parked on the side of the freeway and tried to...

    Hi, I live in Victoria, BC. There's a local craigslist ad for a 1988 Super Eta. This looks like a decent car and I'm thinking of going for it, but I don't know enough about e30s to know for sure if it's worth it. If anyone has the time and inclination please check out the ad and let me know what...

    Hey y'all! I own an 86 325es and both of my backseat floorboards are soaking wet. I've checked to see if the cause could be from clogged drains from the sunroof and it is not. Could it possibly be coming from the undercarriage? Any suggestions are helpful!! I want to fix this before mold and...

    I was driving on the highway today and I went to get over into the right lane so a car could pass and when I tried to accelerate above 80mph, my car was redlining at 5000rpm's. it's an automatic so idk if that had anything to do with it. But I always thought 325es's topped out around 119-120...

    Hey, first time poster. I recently got a 1986 325es and I love it! Just trying to get everything in working order and through searching the forums I can't find anything on replacing the central brake light on non-convertible e30s. All my results come up telling people to remove toolbox from the...

    So I have an 86 325 es and the rpm, gas and temp gauges arent working. The speedometer is barely working but won't work past 20mph. Could it be a fuse issue or something much greater?

    Help! Despite numerous protestations from my better half, I am still driving the first car I ever owned - a 1986 325es - which I shipped from Honolulu to DC in 1990. I need to replace the front seats -- they are pearl beige leather recaro seats and are literally falling apart from daily use...

    Okay, so I got my '86 325es checked out and I need some parts. I'm ordering the repair manual but right now I'm not really sure what I need to get. The most important thing that I need to address is that I have a very small coolant leak. The mechanic said that it wasn't dripping but that he...

    Hi My speedometer has stopped working, as well as the odometer (while the gas gauge, temp gauge, and tachometer continue to work). It used to cut out intermittently and I would bang the dash with my fist and it would work again immediately. Yesterday, I banged and it worked for a second or...
