Hey guys, some of you may have seen this same thread on r3v for the past few weeks, ive been on max since may when i got the car probably and managed to make it cruise worthy by the end of the season max cruise and i did manage to come out meet a bunch of you e30 guys in our fall cruise with my 3 style 5's . So since maxbimmer has been more resourceful and inspiring to me than r3v i had to post the thread here for you to look at and give me some feedback. so here she is, my second car ever, my first BMW and first 5 Spd car as well..

the day i picked it up and quickly rinsed it for pics

Its a 1990 325i, i picked it up in may, bone stock from an older gentleman who was a subaru tech and maintained the e30 VERY well, he was the second owner bought it in 1994 which made me the third, had 258k on it i believe, everything was original pretty much except for some ghetto-rigged but very well matched subaru front seats and a cup holder LMAO, timing belt was done, waterpump was done, it sat at the end of his driveway with a for sale sign for a while, it was in mint shape with veryy minor rust on the fenders which are changable and its 5 speed but the sunroof didnt work at the time, so i made him a firm offer which was lower than his price and he took it (thank god lol). It passed e-test first shot and needed next to nothing for safety my mechanic passed it, so i knew right away I found a good one, so the million dollar journey began.. lol

this is after i got it on the road, went over to my buddy's and threw in an 8000k HID kit, and then went to the car wash.. right after i took this pic, buddy with an e46 comes up to me complimenting its condition and asking if its for sale, i said "sorry man i just bought it"

After that the coolant light started appearing on occasion, and i noticed a coolant leak, my mechanic mentioned that it would need a new waterpump when he inspected for safety, so i knew it was time to get that done.
After that i traced and fixed a rough idle problem with the help of george from simplycars. then i ordered little things i was missing like the foglights
and this is after i replaced the fogs, repainted the scuffed up lip and got french style film for the high beams.. and car wash again lol

then as soon as i started to go crazy with buyin parts, i got injured and couldnt work for 2 months (my luck of course.. ) so i painted my iX flares and front lip myself, got a set of redrilled style 5's, refinished them my self and just kinda put it all together before the season was over..
