I am finally part of the bimmer family (pics)

After a short search i found a bmw i liked, initially i was going to pick up an E36 (325), but after looking at a bunch in my budget none really filled my standards so i decided to go the cheaper route and pick up an E30. E30s are gangsta cars hahaha as far as i am concerned at least. I picked mine up today and have a few questions.

What are good places for getting quality parts for E30s at reasonable prices? I need to change my brake pads front and back, also need a few other minor parts.

And as far as aftermarket goes, where can i pick up front lips, grilles, etc?

Enough with the questions...here is my gangasta E30

This is the look i am going after, i'd like to know a few things...

What kind of a front lip is on this e30, what kind of rims, and the grille, is that an aftermarket one, or just a stock one with the chrome pieces painted black???

First thing you need to achieve that look is an ugly biotch sitting on your hood, after that you need a rieger front lip (www.amimotorsport.com), thirdly, you can black out your kidney grills yourself, just search around.. there's DIY write ups everywhere.

Looks pretty decent, but why didnt u opt for the iS? IMO ur gonna be kicking urself in the butt in the long run. Anyways, definitely pick up an iS lip in the mean time until u get ur hands on the reiger.
