POST YOUR THREAD IN THE CORRECT FORUM

The General Discussion forum is NOT a catch-all.

Please post your topic in the correct subforum.

Technical questions do not belong in General Discussion, neither do body kit or wheel fitment questions. If you don't know where to ask your question, post it in General Technical and we'll move it to the appropriate subforum if necessary.

This helps keep R3VLimited nice and organized so others can more easily find what they are looking for.

Thank you,

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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]

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

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

    I can say that I've never driven a Baur :)

    On the rarity front, must be our lack of rain here (living in one of the hottest / driest cities on the planet has to have some advantages) but including me, there's 3 e30 owners in my street.
    it wasn't an active choice, i was actually looking for an m42 sedan when shopping for my last car, but i got impatient and bought a vert.

    this time around the baur popped up on BaT and in another poorly advised decision it was mine.
