Well here it is:

1983 (yes 1983) 320i e30 euro spec (swiss) owned by older swiss couple from new. It was imported by relative when they passed away.This was the first year for the e30. This car has travelled only 5K+ per year and only 126K in total.

Car is mint in and out, zero rust, minty under side. Original paint with a few very very tiny flaws. I just got it saftied, plus replacing timing belt/water pump and muffler.

A true survivor!

So is that a 2L 4 cylinder M10 engine in there, or the little six?

Either way, it's nice to see cars like this and reminds us North America gets sloppy seconds..... LOL

He said timing belt, so I assume its a M20B20.

Mint survivor, don't modify it.

I was thinking S52....

Just kidding. Steam clean the carpets, freshen up paint in spots then shampoo and wax. I spend today going over it. This thing is almost museum ready it is really mint.

my first e30 was an 83 too. it was a demo for BMW Canada. with an M10. had about 25 owners. Scrapped it after the strut towers peeled away from the fire wall.
