I am addicted to E30's
 
Hello everybody, I am new to this site but i've been a member for a while on e30tech when I had myself a E30 325ix. Ever since I blew the transmission and parents yapping on me to sell the vehicle.*no-no* I been in the market for another E30. I must admit, once you drive a E30 any it be 318 to 325is you get addicted to the feel of it, history and I don't know how to explain the other feeling I get just by cranking the key*wiggle*. I could write a long paragraph but to keep it short, I ran into a E30 after 2 year's of searching in Brampton where about the person who owned it had it since he was 16 and that was 10 year's ago. It took me about 7 hours of negotiating with him*sleep* to sell it to me for $3,000. The vehicle is a 1985 BMW E30 325e. I didn't mind it being a E because I have other plans to do with the engine as a matter of fact I am taking off a year in investing into a vehicle and buying a s52 engine down the road but first priority comes first as maintenance wise. Here are some pictures and feel free to comment I would love to get everybody's opinion on upgrades, con's and pro's. For some reason I can't post pictures here on this forum is because Image shack is a piece of **** for not letting me upload my pictures, every time i try to upload it says Java-void:huh?: Check out the pictures on my profile it's posted in my album*th-up*http://i1186.photobucket.com/albums/...c/IMG_0637.jpghttp://http://i1186.photobucket.com/...c/IMG_0636.jpghttp://http://i1186.photobucket.com/...c/IMG_0615.jpghttp://http://i1186.photobucket.com/...c/IMG_0639.jpghttp://http://i1186.photobucket.com/...c/IMG_0638.jpg

Car looks pretty clean. I could do without that body kit, but that's your preference. I'm in the process of rebuilding an S52 for my e30 so if you have any questions on different parts needs let me know.

cormier 08-31-2012 07:57 PM

I don't mind the kit -- need grills tho

Ya loads of s52 stuff going on here now, shouldn't have a problem finding out tons

Ceeker 08-31-2012 08:42 PM

the kits looks ok, but it's always the front bumper cover that seems to look outta place. But hey, it's your toy. :-) The head should have the number 885 on it. if you want to know whether it is an "I" head. These are the later model heads for the "I" there were earlier versions but don't recall the stamp number.

look pretty clean and a relatively decent price you paid for it. welcome to the e30 ghost town. lol

The rims suit it pretty good. Welcome to max
