Please suggest some seats that would be nice for the track and street, that tilt forward to still use the rear seats.

You've Picked up a pretty clean E30, Almost cleaner than mine when I bought it.

E30 is a very good car to have, and it's really reliable. I have owned 3 E30's in my past.

Good Car's!

ummm...that isn't pretty clean...needs doors,fenders probably license plate light tail panel and God only knows what is hiding. A clean e30 is one where there is minimal rust to start with hopefully no major accident history. it will need a couple grand worth of work to bring it back easily..

You're planning to weld up all that? Man unless it's a learning project you'll probably be better off selling that and finding one without holes for a grand or two more... Just IMO of course but ive dealt with less rust than that and it's still a huge pain

The body of the car can be welded. I'd pull out all the carpet, and check the floors and jack points. I'm sure you'll be busy.

I've never seen an e30 door that bad before. :)

Since when has rotted doors and fenders become a "Clean E30"

I think it's great you found a project car. Hope you get the max enjoyment from it. You should definitely post pics of your progress.

As everything regarding cars is a matter of personal taste and opinion, it's not my cup of tea, though... I would have gotten a car in better shape.

Very few know what "clean, mint, or rust free" means now a days. I think people just say these words of phrases to make themselves feel better about buying a parts car.

Fenders and doors to me are easily replaceable. Floors and rockers are 100% clean.(no surface rust) Yes these doors are the worse I've ever seen.

My First e30 was in a lot worse shape and I brought it back.

Looking at my 71 Chevelle, That is not clean and completely original, It needs all floors, Trunk, centre braces, rear quarter, fender lips, and trunk.

I guess my definition of clean is a lot different than other. Body work doesn't scare me.
