So it's official, the E30 has to go. I'm stuck in the middle of an e36 project that has turned into a toy build. Since I am only allowed 1 toy, the e30 is up for sale.

1990 325is 5speed 220km

Work done...

New cats... Flawless etest
New fuel tank and neck, no leak
New rebuilt rack,
New inner outer rods
New bilstein sports and vogtland springs
Rebuilt ac working great
New fenders
New rear 1/4 panels
New tail panel
New paint (not the hood)
New water pump and gasket
New wires and plugs
New oil
New tires on ronal turbos

Selling saftied and etested.

What's bad?

The blower motor makes noise on high
The tachometer is wonkie kicks in and out, its just a poor connection I think
Need to replace the clutch slave and bleed the system. I'll try to do it before it sells but I've got no time! I have the part already.

5500$ with ronal turbos 4800$ without

no low-balls, in fact no balls at all. Price firm

I've had the opposite so far with my e36. I'm running out of things to replace though (finally).

Did you end up using all the rear suspension bushings for the e36 we spoke about several months ago? I saw that you used urethane throughout, I'm looking to keep stock rubber throughout to try and retain some comfort.

Good luck with the sale, looks like a great car. Nice clean e30's are getting harder and harder to find, and prices are starting to show that.

I don't think I'll go the "mint" route for an e21. I've tried that path with the e30 and now the e36 and I dont like it. there are always so many little things that make me nuts. I strive to make my cars PERFECT, so if one little spec of rust or one rubber stripping is frayed I go nuts!

the e21 would be race inspired, i like the look of the body kits and am looking for a dedicated track car.

Sorry to thread jack but all you peeps saying e30 is better quality than e36??? What? You people have never owned an e36 then. I've had two of each and in no way, any way is an e30 a better car than an e36. No way. E36 is way more reliable, better built, better interior by a landslide, cheaper to fix, easier to work on. It just goes on and on...

Vrbovsky
12-15-2011, 01:08 PM
I've had a few of each in my time as well and I have to agree that a well built e36 is a better car... for me. Its quiet handles very well and can be very easy to maintain...

the E30 on the other hand seems to me to be very loud and with only a few modifications to the suspension such as my car has it becomes very bumpy. I prefer the e36 or e46 as a daily but the e30 is a much better cruiser car. I get tones of looks and thumbs up all the time... getting to old for that now though

Now where do i start...On the E30;
The window regulators dont self destruct
The mirrors dont fade
The rear subframe doesnt fall off
The wipers dont seize and brake off (sedans) all the time
Door panels dont separate (bubble)
OBC's display tend to stay working
Roof liners didnt sag
List goes on and on...

And this is just comparing to the E36, not even talking about the problems with E46/E90!!! Considering the age, the E30 is VERY well built, VERY reliable, and pretty cheap!

12-17-2011, 03:44 PM
i agree with eurostyle, i mean i got one of each, the e36 interior IS alot more well setup, but you have to remember WHEN e30s were made, there's almost nothing else that was made late 80s that could touch the e30s "technology" and craftsmanship. GLWS mate thats a clean e30 you have there

^^^ thanks!

Phil you are right in many ways... consider that you can have a very clean, very well put together s50 swapped beautiful e30 for 10,000$ now consider that I paid 30,000$ for my truck. e30s are NOT a lot of money for a very very unique and reliable (if not comfortable) car.

I am approaching my BMWs as a hobby NOT as daily drivers anymore ..... hence the e21 and the e36 track builds... just want to try something new (new to me anyways) been doing e30's for a decade now and its time to move on...

To all interested in this car: Please wait till spring. I have put it away for the winter and will not be showing it.

I am still playing with the idea of an s52/m52 swap so it may not be relisted at all.

sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused, but please understand that I do not have the time to sell right now and certainly do not want it being test driven in the snow.

Thanks!

This car is back up for sale.

I will be gladly responding to pms and emails.

The car was taken off the market for a short time to undergo
some much need TLC. The original motor was not running right
It was idling poorly. I chased all the vaccume leaks and still could
Solve the issue! So I have now swapped in a low milage m20 and its
Purring like a pussy cat.

I have also bought new tires for the stock 14" weaves.

So this car is now being sold for 4800$ firm safetied and etested
Or if you do not want the 14" and are fine with "as-is" then 4100$

I will NOT negotiate the price. I don't need to sell this car so I'm not prepared to take a massive loss.

Here is what you said last year:

So it's official, the E30 has to go. I'm stuck in the middle of an e36 project that has turned into a toy build. Since I am only allowed 1 toy, the e30 is up for sale.

What a difference a few months make.

What's it to you exactly? Suprised to find a guy on the fence about selling his beloved e30? If you don't want to buy the car then please don't post pointless comments here.

I don't understand this statement makes either. You either want to buy it or don't?
