the first E30 I saw on my eurotrip...

I've been in Italy for two weeks and this is the first E30 I saw (I've only seen 2 others since then, not in as nice shape as this one)




Hopefully I'll a lot more when I go to Germany

check out what I went for a spin in today, it's not an E30 but still a cool piece of automotive nostalgia. It's not an original abarth cinquecento, the owner converted it himself.

Insert***pppbbbbbbrrrrrrr*** sounding engine noises here.

And imagine hill climbing in it.

So wait Steve, you're in Europe, and all you've seen is some weird e30 318i coupe, whatever that is, and a yellow fiat?

Dude, you gotta open your eyes out there!

Also, could you bring me back some Italian 6 button OBC face plates? PLEASE!! .

BMW will only ship french and english ones to Canada.

Lol I've seen like 3 E30's total in the 3 weeks I've been here. There aren't too many old cars on the road here, probably because of TUV regulations. Most people are driving new cars, the only old cars you see on the road are mint classic cars which are probably insured as a collectors car so they are subject to different regulations or something. The only other notable cars I've seen are a few Ferraris (two 599s and an F430) and two mint condition Lancia Delta Integrales, unfortunately it was when we were driving so I didn't have a chance to snap a picture of them.

On another note the rental car we had for the past 3 weeks was a BMW 116d hatchback, I wish they'd bring over the 1 series hatch and the diesel motors (I know the diesel motors are supposed to be coming) to Canada.

Today I saw this E30 parked on the street in Rome


as well as this E21 which looked like it hadn't been driven in a couple weeks as it was covered in dust.

I saw this nice 318 for sale today, it was dusty so it was hard to tell exactly what the colour was. It looked like a dark violet in person, but it looks blue in the pics
