  2. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hello, I am looking at an E30 that is for sale for $3k. Here's the deal: the engine is seized because the dude accidentally drove it with low oil. What it has going for it is it's got a clean title, only 147k miles, one owner since 1987, and it has a near perfect interior with no rips, and it's...

    Hello, I recently bought an E30, and I noticed the check engine light on, so I attempted the stomp test. I pressed the pedal fully to the ground five times and within the 5 second period to do so, and tried this multiple times. I checked the CEL bulb and it’s fine, I also checked the throttle...

    Hi, so I just bought an e30! It's a 1988 325i Hardtop Convertible 5 speed, and I'm having some minor issues with the instrument cluster. First, the odometer does not work. I took it apart, and will be replacing the odo gears (which are broken), but is there any way to know the actual mileage of...

    I’m looking at a red 1988 325i convertible for $5k. It’s a manual transmission with 120k miles, and it comes with a hardtop. It does need some TLC, but completely stock, good paint, left in a garage for 3 years, and runs well enough. Any tips or advice would be appreciated!

    I have a 1990 E30. It has leaked PSF since I got it so I added ATF several times. Now I just read that some E30s require CHF... if your reservoir cap has a green sticker on it! My green sticker is evidentially long gone. The only way I know its a CHF car is that I found an empty can of CHF...

    Hello, I am looking for an E30 But I do not care what body type. I do not care what shape the engine is in, I would prefer a car with less rust than one that runs but if it checks both those boxes then that's great. I am fine with any model year, I do not care about the valences or whether or...

    If I do a 5 lug conversion can I still use an SLR angle kit designed for an e30 Or should i just use an SLR angle kit without doing the 5 lug and stick with 4 lug and would it be worth doing a 5 lug conversion

    I own a 1984 318i and was on the way to the mechanic for a starter issue. My heat has worked before with the odd noise here and there but A/C never worked. When the fan was turned to the lowest speed, while I was driving, coolant scented steam started blowing through the vents very fast, almost...

    So here's the deal. I bought this 1988 bmw e30 325xi that had seen extensive work but had some rust damage and I sold it to a buddy of mine but I got a bunch of parts with the car. There was a set of worn front cv joints in the box of parts and my friend told me that those are rare and hard to...

    This had been sitting by the ocean in NorCal for 10 years. New CPS, new in-tank pump, new high-pressure pump, new battery, new O2 and fuel pump relays. I was lurking around and finally make an account to ask for myself. The left side (higher numbers) of the fuse box doesn't trigger the light...

    My new-to-me 1987 325e (manual with optional lsd) with 50,000 miles was parked for 15 years 'til 15 months ago (November 2019). The gentleman who revived it from storage did so 100% by the book, draining, flushing and lubricating prior to moving it and turning it over. Runs like thoroughbred...

    Hey guys, I'm new here so let me introduce myself first! My name is ElectricalZomB and I'm from the Netherlands. I own an E30 316i project car and have owned a few more old BMW 3 series. I swapped the engine for a M52B28 Single vanos engine. After some unfortunate events the engine overheated...

    1991 325i E30 just came out of the shop a few months ago running like a champ. It has sat now for 4 or 5 months. Went out to crank and got no power but battery was really low. Charged it to over 13 volts and also ran jumpers just to see if it would light up. Still completely dead, no lights, no...
