you know you drive an E30 when

I stole this from Bimmerforums, which stole it from E30tech.
But it's a great thread.

I'l start.

You know you drive an E30 when....

Your girlfriend has to crawl over the drivers seat everytime you go somewhere cause the passenger door is jammed shut. Then out of the blue it mysteriously works again.

You get ridiculed by family and friends for spending $10,000 on a 20 year old car and brag about it.

You know your car is FAR more superior than any car on the road today

you know you drive an e30 when you think your car is worth $5000, but don't want to pay $40 for an alternator :-)

You know when you're in an E30 when you gotta smack the dash to make your temp gauge work.
When your gf gets pissed everytime you see an E30 and yell out "look it's my car!"

WARNING

Post your own answer here before you read this thread because more than likely it's on there.
You'll feel better instead of feeling like you just copied someone.

It's just more fun.

You know (or knew in my case) you drive an e30 when your passenger asks if birds are in your dash when you turn the heat on.
