Hello everyone , just registered. I don't have a bimmer yet, driving a beat up Toyota. But I always wanted one and never got a chance to own a bmw. But lately I've been quite obsessed with them, specifically the e30 variety, wife is getting 0 love lol.

Anyways, I'm well aware of the 25 posts rule to be able to post on "looking for" forum but I don't have much to contribute considering I'm a noob without the car. Hope you can see my dilemma, and maybe can point me in the right direction.

Any BMW/e30 enthusiasts in Victoria/Vancouver Island?

Thanks for welcoming me guys!

I hope I can find a fairly decent ride so I can work on it as I go. But I seem to have been missing all the good deals every time I go sailing so that's kinda frustrating.

I'll post a pic when I find one...

Welcome! I'm sure there's a decent E30 out there on the west coast with your name on it.

So I've been browsing for a little while looking on Craigslist, Used Vic, Kijiji and found exactly what I want (link posted below). However, what happened when I contacted the person was a little strange.

I texted the guy/girl and asked him a few questions saying that I would need as much info as I can get before I come out to see it from the Island. He replied back saying it's sold! I was pretty bummed out thinking I missed my chance again. In the add it said as long as it's up, the car is still for sale. So several days passed and the add is still up. So my wife texted him and asking if it's still for sale and he said yes! What is going on?

Anyways here is the link: http://www.kijiji.ca/v-cars-trucks/b...ationFlag=true

I know it's expensive, but that's why we have this forum right, to ask for advice

Ok, the situation has been resolved. Turns out he has two cars for sale and when he said yes to my wife he was talking about the othe car...but now I'm sad and at the same time a little concerned how quickly ppl snatch them up regardless of how crazy the price is

for that price I can get you a Eurospec E30 ! Perhaps you fancy a kombi or a 'sporty' diesel drivetrain? PM if you want to know more

So while I'm looking for that perfect e30, I stumbled on this one: http://www.usedvictoria.com/classifi...2-E30_26744789

Any thoughts on the modifications, worth it or you are better off doing something like this on your own. I would definitely repaint it white...or any other color that has a bit more character.

Good luck in your search!
