View Full Version : What do you like the most about your e30

01-29-2004, 03:48 PM
I guess, I like the cockpit like design of the driver side interior.

What do you e30 owner like the most about your vehicle?

01-29-2004, 03:50 PM
that it drives like a go kart

01-29-2004, 03:53 PM
yes, that too. My legs are touching the side panels while shifting gears and accelerating. Cornering under dry conditions is fun.

01-29-2004, 05:39 PM
they are so bullitproof, repairs are very resonable, the classic look, the great handling, I could go on....

01-29-2004, 06:03 PM
430k+ km.

No rebuild.

01-29-2004, 06:05 PM
I like the classic look and that it is a solid car.

01-29-2004, 06:32 PM
sleeper ...I surprise so many cars that think they're fast

01-29-2004, 06:37 PM

01-29-2004, 07:52 PM
the wide body!!!

01-29-2004, 09:21 PM
i love how they handle and the looks. altho they look so slick with the deep dish.mmm yummmy just plain sexy cars

01-29-2004, 09:36 PM
just the way they feel when you drive them, i really feel like im one with the car hehe, but i dont get that feeling when i drive any other car

01-29-2004, 09:38 PM
the light weight and (like Jon said) drives like a Go-Kart. Also love the fact that it's RWD (opposed to other Jap sport-compact cars).

01-29-2004, 09:38 PM
My E30 handles like a champ, despite its age and high mileage (>290000km). Under certain conditions, I can induce a controlled drift, and that's reason enough to hang on to this winter-beater for that extra year. :P

01-29-2004, 09:39 PM
they way it looks lke i cant get over this pic. It feels and looks lke one of the kind :P

Becuase insurance on a 535i would have killed me... I like it, but not my first choice....

Rear wheel, cockpit design drivers seat, Rev happy ;), light weight, box body, engine is strong, ...... blah blah blah

For sure... Its not like I baby it either. *th-up*

It has the aerodynamics of a barn.j/k I love it cause no matter how hard i bag it, it wont break. And a slammed clean e30 doesnt look at all like a 5 or 6 thousand dollar car. It looks like a million dollars to me.

01-30-2004, 01:01 AM
i like how it has 230,000 mi. no rebuild and it carries all my gear and five people while still being able to drift. exept right now its still broke from the boar i hit. but other than that i love the car, i would never go back to hondas!

01-30-2004, 03:40 AM
I love my car to death, every bit of it. I couldn't possibly choose one aspect.

That said, I love it's uniqueness, RWD, light weight, incredibly simple yet effective mechanics, sheer lack of the isolation of later BMWs, and the exterior is timeless.

I love this car. :cool:

01-30-2004, 03:55 AM
its a bmw and thats enough for me .

01-30-2004, 04:57 AM
I like the cockpit thing going on as well. Everyone knows the origin of bmw i assume....probably why the cockpit design is so well designed

01-30-2004, 07:28 AM
f**k yeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaahhh1!!!

01-30-2004, 12:20 PM
i like it cause nothing looks like it, its the only sport rear wheel drive with good potencial that you can drift and not hear rattles from the plastics, its built like a brickhouse and you can always jump in it and do a 3 day long drive and still come out without a headache and with a smile. Finnaly cause it kicks some E46 ass in the looking cool factor when i come out of bends sideways(lol)

01-30-2004, 03:24 PM
1. Reliable
2. Styling
3. RWD
4. The look on the faces of Civic/Cavalier/Sunfire/etc... owners when they get thier asses handed to them by a car that is 16 years old!


01-30-2004, 03:33 PM
100% german mechanical excellence!

01-30-2004, 04:14 PM
awesome handling...all wheel drive....body....brakes....i love it like pie
