I agree with buddy why by a BMW as a winter car, unless it has a salvage title then what the heck.

Many on the boards seem to have E30s as winter cars. What up wit dat, they're like classics now? Anyway wouldn't the E30 make a bad Winter. I mean we all know about the leaks they have. Water in the rear or front cabin, also the trunk (mine is currently leaking I think I should fix it with new tailight assembly). Lastly, I wouldn't think the heater on a car that old produce much heat?
Wrong Wrong and Wrong........ I don't have any of those problems with mine, and my heater is awsome in the e30, heats up quicker and blows much hotter air then my e36.
Sure they are not the best of car for winter traction wise, but a lot of the cars out there aren't......I bought it as a winter car and may turn it into a project car in the spring. I would rather drive that around in the winter then my e36.

My heater is only a year old, which I think has something to with the lack of heating. I've noticed that since I use it more (almost winter now) it has been getting warmer than before.

snd84318i where's the water leaking in on yours? I've narrowed mine down to the tailight assembly (loose screws, old sealant, strips).
