My new E30

Hey guys,

Okay, so now that it's officially in my hands and sucking down my gas money, let me introduce you to my new E30!

Just picked her up on Thursday in Mississauga. It's a 1985 325e with a 2.7 rebuild, only 4000km on it so far. Some of you may know the car already, it was for sale a while ago here. It underwent a full body teardown and all the rust was removed with new metal welded in its place.

So far it runs great! I'm new to E30, I've been driving my E34 for the last 2.5 years and this is quite a change. It's a very different ride, but a very good one!!

Anyways, here it is...













Here's one indoors...


And here's a shot off the hood into the light. Photo is unedited.

You gotta fix the hanger for the exhaust, black out the rad support and lower it a tad bit more. It looks mint considering how it was before.

Thanks!

Yeah, good call on the rad support. Never hit me til then, have to look into it.

The exhaust hangs low and off right now, but it's gonna get fixed soon. The hanger alone won't do it, I'm gonna have the pipe redone. It was previously placed for a different valance.

Not even the drivetrain resembles what it was 2 years ago.

Yeah big props to Aveman, if it wasn't for him this car would be nothing. He put a ton of work into this car, inside and out. 2.7 conversion, and the body looks brand new. Thanks again man!

Said it once, will say it again, it is clean, the rims are sick, and paint is flawless.

Probably one of the best paint jobs I have seen. I wasn't too crazy about the color at first but man does it look nice at night.
