You know you drive an E30 when your rear window explodes when you use the defrost...

When someone is confused how to open the hood...

When the center console is broken from putting it in reverse...

When people tell you "Sure those Honda rims will fit! they are 4x100!" and you laugh at them...

When your winter beater is newer then your car...

When you know for sure you would buy another one, if you get the chance!!!

When you're too cheap to buy brake pad sensors, so you just take the steering wheel off, and the cluster out to remove the indicator light.

When people goto open the back door on your coupe because there should be a door there.

When you need to push your window switches down and to the right to open or close your window.

When you need to open your trunk and push the latch out from the inside to close it again.

You know you drive an e30 when you do it this way instead of taking off the wheels and grounding out the sensor.

You know you drive an e30 when the thought of having to smell the bumper shock oil again makes you want to puke.

You know you drive an e30 when you go to roll down the window in any other car, and reach for the center console.

When you learn the words like OFFSET , LSD , and know of hand what tire size goes

with what wheel - then you know you are in an e30

...when your crotch is scorched and wet from holding that cup of Timmy's while you drive.
...when your lower back aches from adjusting the valves so often.
