I don't (for long).

There's a set of 17s coming from the UK in a couple months.

They're the 'cherry on top'.

You know you drive an e30 when:

Your gauges are all dead.
Your fan only works on one setting; 4.
Your radio displays code.
Your dash is cracked.
Your centre console shifts over when you put it in reverse.

You know you drive an e30 when the inside of your car looks better then the outside.

You know you drive an E30 when you can buy a whole parts car for $300, yet people ask $400 for a plastic bumper conversion
