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 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

..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
