e30 specialist toronto

Hi all-first time here on the forum!

I bought a 91 318is swap last year and drove it a few times before locking it up for the winter. Last year I had a problem where I could red line in neutral but when driving i could not get the car to go past 100km. Didn't do too much trouble shooting on that.

I boosted it last week as the battery was dead so i let it run for 30 mins but then it started to overheat! Coolant everywhere! I have had nothing but issues and I am a complete Nube to all this.

Can anyone suggest anybody in the Toronto are that know a lot about e30 so I can get this car on the road again!

Check out our list of sponsors.

Bimmersport, RMP & Stance Factory are all great options.

Apex Motor Works is a fairly new sponsor you might wanna check out also.
I've only personally used Stance Factory, but a lot of members have had great things to say about all of them.

Another option is Bavarian Motors located in Markham. They're not too far north of the 404 and Steeles exit. I see plenty of E30's getting work done there.

Feel free to contact Steve Gailits
7634 Woodbine Avenue
