    Story behind the car: After R3V'ing my suicidal Bronzit '90 4dr, i still had the itch to modify e30's, so i searched around and found a good deal on an '88 325is that was bone stock w/ faded lachsilber paint. Through the course of modifying my '88, it went through multiple fazes including the 2-tone slut look. After saving enough money for a decent paint job, i decided on an OEM BMW color that was close to origional, but a little more Gunmetal. After seeing my car with a fresh paintjob, i knew it was the one e30 that i would keep FOR_E_VER. From there on out I went on a quest to make my e30 one of the cleanest in N.America, i feel that i am almost there, even my wife loves the car now, and she hated it when we started dating 4yrs ago!!! Thank you to R3V for being a HUGE resource for all my projects i have done on the e30, without which i mite have been driving an eBay special.

                        I've always loved this car. Love the comment about how without r3v you might be driving an ebay special car. I definitely feel that r3v has strongly influenced what is "acceptable" as far as mods.
