I picked up my second (third) E30 today!

I got a 1990 4 door 325i. It has the iS trunk spoiler.
New clutch
NICE black leather interior
Magnaflow exhaust from the exhaust manifold to the muffler...and my lord does it sing beautifully.
I found this one to drive MUCH better than my previous E30. It handled the 401, 427, and 410 like a champ.

but the exterior is beat up. it needs lots of love and care on the outside. although that wasnt my most concern i now have to look at it as a real issue. its ugly, but sexy.

i have to replace the wind shield as it is cracked, lukily i held onto my old one which is in tip top shape.

the tranny is too nice. shifts into each gear smoooothly.
and i have a working sunroof...:). its a manual crank though, which is fine with me!

power windows, heated seats.

but this car has electrical issues that need to be taken care of.
the cluster light either is on or off. it will stay on, but it doesnt stay on when the lights are turned off.
the off light switch is the on light switch. vice versa too.
the heater doesn't work. its random really when it wants too work. i get no fan blowing air at all.

other than that the car runs beautfully. mainly the reason i picked it up. plus the seller was a really good dude. i gave him 1200 straight up from his original 1800 asking price. he accecpted, and i drove the car home on the spot!

that car has a passed etest on it, so now i just gotta do all the safty shit.

than im good to go like a crunch wrap supreme.

ill post pics tmrw.

Are you sure those clicks are real for a nearly 20 year old car? If so you got a damn good deal, are selling the other e30??
