Picked this up a 86 325e this weekend for 300 bucks. Already has Recaro Seats, STS, Exhaust, Wheels, K&N filter, and Suspension. Timing belt snapped so it needs a new motor. I already have a guy that is willing to give me one he has laying around. Not a bad deal. I am super excited about the car. I love E30s so much.




Sticker I added


One more thing. These were taken with my Droid. Holy crap they are good. Got to love new phones.

What is that thing next to driver side headlight? Does this car have a turbo or that's for the intake to get more cold air?.

Great car for HPDE. Nice pick up. I love the French fogs on that flat black one. HOT!

Ive seen those cars with the M3 v6 engines swapped in. Crazy fast at the track. Always loved the simple clean look of the E30 chassis.

It mates with a K&N filter for better Air flow. I may take it off and put the Highbeam back on so I can throw yellow film on. I love that look.

Thanks for the comments. I am really excited about this car. I just bought a BMW Z3 steering rack, small lip spoiler, Euro Plate, and new tail lights since the previous owner blacked them out so much you can see the light.

My plans are to Run DSP. Plans are for a 325i head with the 2.7 liter Bottom. This will take a while to complete though.

Forgot, I purchased an E36 Steering rack last night as well.
