    I've never wanted another E series to replace my 30


      ...had a car with an m20. I've had an m10, m50nv, m50, m52, m42, and just bought another e30 w/a m10.

          An auto M30 car would probably be ok.

          I used to drive my car in semi automatic mode when it had an auto trans [emoji1787]

                  I've never lost an iS lip. The iS Lip on my current E30 (re-shell) survived this shit right below:

                  It may have cracked but it didn't break. Same iS lip on my car right now.

                  1991 BMW 318i (Old Shell RIP, Now Being Re-shelled & Reborn)
                  1983 Peugeot 505 STI
                  1992 Volvo 240 Wagon
                  2009 Toyota 4Runner SR5 Sport 4WD


                    Ouch - that's a nasty accident. Nevermind the iS lip, good to hear that you're ok after a shunt like that!

                      Ouch that was a nasty hit. Glad you made it out alive. That picture is like an automotive history for me. Just replace the Elantra with an Accent. I owned two CB7(4th gen) Accord coupes. The Accent was totaled (RIP) last year.

                        That was a fierce collision. Never had a cracked dash 2-0 so far. Just had a reverse light go out. So can check that off as "replaced." My drivers side door lock is going so I will get the joy of replacing that soon.
