Hey guys, some of you may have seen this same thread on r3v for the past few weeks, ive been on max since may when i got the car probably and managed to make it cruise worthy by the end of the season max cruise and i did manage to come out meet a bunch of you e30 guys in our fall cruise with my 3 style 5's :P. So since maxbimmer has been more resourceful and inspiring to me than r3v i had to post the thread here for you to look at and give me some feedback. so here she is, my second car ever, my first BMW and first 5 Spd car as well.. *smoke*

the day i picked it up and quickly rinsed it for pics
http://i857.photobucket.com/albums/ab140/905cb7/IMAG0011.jpg?t=1326824033

Its a 1990 325i, i picked it up in may, bone stock from an older gentleman who was a subaru tech and maintained the e30 VERY well, he was the second owner bought it in 1994 which made me the third, had 258k on it i believe, everything was original pretty much except for some ghetto-rigged but very well matched subaru front seats and a cup holder LMAO, timing belt was done, waterpump was done, it sat at the end of his driveway with a for sale sign for a while, it was in mint shape with veryy minor rust on the fenders which are changable and its 5 speed but the sunroof didnt work at the time, so i made him a firm offer which was lower than his price and he took it (thank god lol). It passed e-test first shot and needed next to nothing for safety my mechanic passed it, so i knew right away I found a good one, so the million dollar journey began.. lol

this is after i got it on the road, went over to my buddy's and threw in an 8000k HID kit, and then went to the car wash.. right after i took this pic, buddy with an e46 comes up to me complimenting its condition and asking if its for sale, i said "sorry man i just bought it"

http://i857.photobucket.com/albums/ab140/905cb7/IMAG0049.jpg?t=1326824207

After that the coolant light started appearing on occasion, and i noticed a coolant leak, my mechanic mentioned that it would need a new waterpump when he inspected for safety, so i knew it was time to get that done.
After that i traced and fixed a rough idle problem with the help of george from simplycars. then i ordered little things i was missing like the foglights
and this is after i replaced the fogs, repainted the scuffed up lip and got french style film for the high beams.. and car wash again lol

http://i857.photobucket.com/albums/ab140/905cb7/IMAG0107.jpg?t=1326825018

then as soon as i started to go crazy with buyin parts, i got injured and couldnt work for 2 months (my luck of course.. :() so i painted my iX flares and front lip myself, got a set of redrilled style 5's, refinished them my self and just kinda put it all together before the season was over..

flares + bottlecaps = puuuke

http://i857.photobucket.com/albums/ab140/905cb7/IMAG0162.jpg?t=1326825040

i can fix that

http://i857.photobucket.com/albums/ab140/905cb7/IMAG0175.jpg?t=1326825062

a tip for you guys looking to polish/refinish your wheels yourselves with no real tools for it.. Don't do it.. it was a massive pain in the neck but they turned out okay..

http://i857.photobucket.com/albums/ab140/905cb7/IMAG0185.jpg?t=1326825115

i did fix the overspray on the caps and lips after.. i was just excited to take pics of the finished product

http://i857.photobucket.com/albums/ab140/905cb7/IMAG0231.jpg?t=1320447101

after weeks of driving with only 2 on (saving up for the spacers to clear front calipers- told you i was broke at the time lol) i finally got them all on and this is pretty much how it sits today

http://i857.photobucket.com/albums/ab140/905cb7/IMAG0239.jpg?t=1326825111


http://i857.photobucket.com/albums/ab140/905cb7/E30%20Fall%20Cruise/DSC00218.jpg

so now that I've been back to work, i have since, picked up a donor e36 (Mclovin') who i will be abusing for its M52B28 and ZF and swapping (OBDII) into my e30 with a few mods, upgrading the e30 suspension/brakes and fixing up the body a little bit more next spring, Alex from ACP (who is also a member on max) will be doing the overhaul work, he's an e30 guru and i've seen alot of his great work, so im excited to see the results!

Just kidding, my first one was a coupe. Let me know if you want to buy my minty leather and houndstooth interior.

Blk3- thanks man, I've heard it before they're deff not everyones cup of tea, but the color has grown on me so it stays for now..
Maxbell- sedans are awesome dude, not that I put the back seat into much use since I'm like 6'2", but I doo enjoy the 2 extra doors and 2 extra windows for practicality. I'm rly looking for a black leather interior, but pm me some pics and how much you're asking and you never know we could work it out..
DaveR- thanks man, yeah I'm running stock setup, lowering is one of many things on the list for this summer
Supernaught- thanks man I'll try and keep you guys posted as more gets done

You worry about getting the bottom 1/4 of your car painted before it turns complete grey and completely rusts off. Or leave it grey to draw attention away from the trailer hitch.:P


I like the colour of the rims, but they're having trouble jiving with with yellow highs & fogs and orange side markers. I say keep that colour though. If every basketweave was silver... we'd have a bunch of silver basketweaves.

Thanks man, yeah they're def not going silver, if anything i'll change it up with another wierd color, but i hear what you're saying about matching the fogs and all which was my original intent, but id like to get euro trim at some point when i start working on the body again this summer, nd i also wanna shop for some smoked smiley's and smoked turn sigs maybe so i'm not too sure whether the highs are staying or not, but they're there for now lol what i also dooo want is that trunklid you got for me, and i'm actually dropping mclovin' off with a bunch of parts this saturday, so i'll try to make a mental note to grab the trunk lid off the e30 while im there too! then we can meet up sometime after and ill grab it, say you got a spare euro plate filler sittin around you wanna sell me with it so i dont have to order one :D? maybe even that sick one you have on the vert :P

Hahaha I have a turbo kit sitting at my friends place that I can put on. Just not sure if I want to turbo the M20 lol. The only way I'll turbo it is if I build the stroker. I have a full M20 2.7l sitting at my trailer and my e30 has the 2.5l in it. So I don't know , maybe.
I'm doing a huge suspension overhaul. I paid jay a visit at stance factory lol. I'm just waiting for parts to come in and I gotta buy a new set of shoes too!!! Lol that's priority for the rest of this winter. I just can't finalize on a set of rims that I want lol. Only time will tell.

I also agree with cleaning up the color scheme of you car to bring out the rims. Don't change the color of the rims. They look great IMO.

I'm sure I can find the bill for my smoked Hellas and give you the sellers contact info. They were reasonably priced and included a 6000k hid kit with them. Let me know if you are interested.

IMO smoked hella projectors, smoked signals and stock fog lights will sharpen the front up.

Good luck and keep us posted!!

okay so I have been busy buying parts and working to make pay cheques to buy parts, but i thought i'd give everyone a little update in an attempt to bring this thread back from the dead

So ive managed to get myself a mint black interior conversion courtesy of 2 max members. For those of you who don't know, My car was retrofitted with Subaru forester leathers that matched the color of my ugly beige interior pretty darn good but were ugly as sin and were made for people 5 feet and shorter..

New seats

Also got the matching door cards, a minty dash to replace my cracked one, and a glove box to replace my broken one (not pictured), all courtesy of Mr. Richie @ Rebirth

Also, Things didn't go as planned, so we ended up using a 413 Red Label OBDI ecu to make our lives easier, quite intrigued to see the result of this.

Front and rear strut bars and some brand new goodies i scored

So I received my "S52" cams in the mail shortly after the update I made, only to realize that I was sold An S52 exhaust cam and an M52 intake cam. But as it turns out it was an honest mistake and the the seller was oblivious to the fact that they were different cams, long story short he instantly went out and got me the right intake cam after i have filed for a dispute on Pay pal, it is in customs in Windsor and should be in my mail some time within the next week.

Haha you're right, my m20 was TIRED, this should give my e30 a new life. Although I'll never be too cool to cruise low and slow every now and then :cool:

[QUOTE=egye30;1555573]okay so I have been busy buying parts and working to make pay cheques to buy parts, but i thought i'd give everyone a little update in an attempt to bring this thread back from the dead

So ive managed to get myself a mint black interior conversion courtesy of 2 max members. For those of you who don't know, My car was retrofitted with Subaru forester leathers that matched the color of my ugly beige interior pretty darn good but were ugly as sin and were made for people 5 feet and shorter..

New seats

that's as far as that, obviously leaving out a few boring details.. like starter, wheel bearing etc etc.. but despite running a little behind schedule, we're getting veryy close.

the race car needs some love as well

So I've had the car back for a week now, runs great for the most part all thanks to Jay & Mike @ Stance Factory, Hit a little bump in the road and could not have the project finished at the original shop (ACP) and got in touch with Stance and they were super knowledgeable and helpful and got the car running exactly as it should as a swap. I haven't really been able to drive it anywhere out of my neighborhood much and break it in, but that will change this week once the appraisal is complete and its on the road.

should be behind the drivers speaker in the kick panel brown and a purple green wire with the 1 inch connector on it, might be tied up a bit with that black sticky tape.

if you can't find it I can help you look next time your by
