Wow, somebody actually going to an e30 from e36, welcome friend, it's like you've come home. This site and others like it will be your friend. Enjoy.
P.S. it's not necessarily an easy shift but well worth it.

Thanks, I've always wanted an e30 but just never got around to getting one. This one needs some work, I bought it off a fellow max member, it needs a slave cylinder and clutch pedal assembly also has a gas leak. Its also got the mtech 2 package with full leather interior, bilesten+h&r suspension + some goodies . I also have a spare set of injectors from my old m50!! I was quite happy when I read that they would work on the m20. I'll post some pics this weekend! Pretty excited to get this thing on the road! Heard they're fun cars

It's leaking on the drivers side, right infront of the rear wheel, looks like a fuel pump...I don't know if the previous owner installed it cuz I havnt seen a pump here before..it would scrape a speed bump..so I don't think that's safe at all..I'll take pics once I Jack it up..gotta fix the main brake line also!
