View Full Version : My E30 progress....>>>>

Well, Since the E36 is gone :( , I have been restoring the good old e30. I want to bring it back to original condition and not go overboard with modding it.
The e30 has much more of a drivers experience then the e36 ever did, and especially with my exhaust, it sounds so sweet.

Here the list of things I have done to my car to bring it back up to original condition and then some:

1986 BMW 325e
2.7L – Inline 6cyl

Replaced Items:

<sum> Fuel Pump
<sum> Fuel Lines/Hoses
<sum> Fuel Tank
<sum> V-Belts (All Belts)
<sum> Timing Belt/Tensioner
<sum> Water Pump
<sum> Side Coolant Flange
<sum> Coolant Hoses
<sum> Bosch Platinum Spark Plugs
<sum> Ignition Wires
<sum> A/C Condensor
<sum> Cam Adjuster seals
<sum> Valve Cover Gasket
<sum> Inner CV Boots
<sum> Control Arm Bushings
<sum> Tie Rods
<sum> Idle Control Valve
<sum> Distributor Cap + Rotor
<sum> Cleaned Out Throttle Body
<sum> T-Valve For Washers
<sum> Battery

Performance Upgrades:

<sum> Magnaflow Custom SS Exhaust With SS Piping From the Resonator Back, SS Hangers, Inlet Piping Diameter Increased To 2.75”
<sum> Ractive Intake With Custom Piping/AFM Adaptor


<sum> Intrax Springs – 2” Drop (Front)/ 1.6” Drop (Rear)
<sum> Bilstein Gas Charged Shocks
<sum> 20mm Sway Bar, w/C-Links, Bushings, Holders


<sum> Bosch H4 Low/High Beam Conversion
<sum> Blacked Out Front Grill
<sum> Custom Valve Cover
<sum> Momo Street Fighter Wheel w/Hub Adaptor


<sum> Pioneer CD Player (50X4)
<sum> 2ch Alpine 500W Amp
<sum> 2 10” Kenwood Subs (Sealed Box)

I guess I have dumped a lot of money into the car, but the body shape of the car is excellent on exterior and interior. The only other things I am really looking to do this summer is a bodykit from EuroStyle, 16" Wheels and a chip from MarkD
I plan on keeping it for a long time and hopefully by the end of the summer I can Store it and just use it in the summer and keep it as a collectors. I was always an e36 guy, but I really do love the e30's, very classic.

It means "Get ready to be flamed". I.e., get ready to be attacked for your comments.
