1988 327i Mtech II from Europe
 
Hi, i'm from Czech republic and currently living in UK, but next year going to Toronto so like to show u my lady
Bought her 4years back from 1st owner with 64k on clock (with all MOT,all services,etc.)..she was 320iA, fitted mtech2 bodykit (original, but from coupe so rear ones started to fall into a parts) sunroof and front el.windows..she looked like this when i bought her

And after 4years of ownership she looks a bit different

Leather sport seats from my czech e30
BBS RC 035... as everybody know RC are only 5stud so i went for welding them and then redrilled to 4x100 stud...painted them with honda bike gold colour, dishes needed to be polish and custom s/s bolts were next on the way

2.7 stroker with 15k after complete rebuilt...Schrick camshaft 276/276 with pulley, A-tech chip and BBTB (witch was damaged when i get it)
3.65 LSD
Bilsteins B6 with 55/35 springs in 51mm stunts
4x BBS RC centre caps
Mtech2 steering wheel..smaller one
Sony radio plus some pioneer speakers for front and rear
original indicators, leather handbrake and gear knob/gaiter, etc....

....after 1week of work (mostly after job) was everything put together and ready for 1st start...i was so nervous as it was my 1st engine swap and was hoping that it gonna work as it should....and it started just fine...few pictures

video is from last summer so hopefully this year better quality, better cameraman and a bit more faster

Over winter i bought a few small stuff and then this...
Scorpion exhaust system with le-mans pipes + s/s manifold

waiting for new studs for manifold and small modification needs to be done on exhaust to fit properly to manifold, but nothing major

and then i found these and couldn't let them go
BBS RC 009/010...front 8inch et10 rear 9inch et19

http://img252.imageshack.us/img252/8785/p1010095u.jpg

..they need refurbish, but i'm happy to do that and new tyres..205/45 front and 225/45 or 235/40 rear..what do u thing guys?
And finally my throttle body just been transformed to BBTB

As above i gonna move to Toronto next year and i don't wanna be without car for long so lads any suggestions on where and what e30 i could buy?? My budget will be around 5-6k to spent for 2.5 or 1.8is in really good condition or pay less and do the job all over again as i did over here. I gonna take my BBS RC with me as i love them and won't let them go!!!

Any comments welcome

Honestly, for the kind of money you're looking to spend on an E30 over here, bring your current car with you. You've already got the hard work done and it'd be a hit at show and shines with the RHD (or convert it to LHD when you get here).

Just my thoughts...

PS: Nice car!

What kind of money we talking about??

Whoa! That's pretty slick!

How long are you in Toronto for? If a short period of time, then store this car and take transit in Toronto. (it's good)

If you plan on staying here for a while, you could ship your car over. It's not hugely expensive.

I just did a wee bit of googling and found http://www.autocarshippers.com/. They gave me a quote of 2197.00 (based on the info in your sig and post). I'm sure if you looked you could find a much better rate.

Miris327i 05-18-2012 05:43 PM

I'm not sure how long i gonna stay...but probably at least 3years and as i'm from czech rep. where steering wheel is on left side, so keep that car for future has no point. And to be honest i wouldn't mind build another one again, as with this one i'm almost done (was going for Miller MAF + chip, but now change my mind so will sell at it is).
2300 for delivery is way too much. i hope that mine will sell for around 3-4k so i'll probably go for buying new one :) I putted some quotes so will see what i will be offered.

Want to get into another project eh? Your current car looks awesome! You shouldn't have trouble finding a good clean e30 for that amount of money though :)
