Agreed. For every bit of rust you can see, there is always twice as much you can't (yet)

I do not think I have ever seen a e30 with a rusted out floor that bad. Hell.. with rust anywhere that bad.

I give the repair job a 4 out of 10.

think of it this way, more holes equals less weight

i would say it wasent bad job on the floors but others act like every bmw is theirs and nothing is good enough. Thats why it is your car not theirs. I had the floors completely redone on mine.sure it would have been easier to sell it but i like my car and could care less if anyone else does.
A+ for trying to keep another e30 from the scrap yard. It is not like they sell floor pans for them.

hey guys in GTA how much did it cost to get your e30 floor pan welded/fixed? I'm thinking of getting mine fixed too. Is it a DIY job? just get the metal plates at home depot and away I go? hehe
