    ohthejosh and his e30

    UPDATE PAGE 2

    sup sup everyone!!!

    well i bought my 86 325e last march as a commuter car and eversince i bought my e30 i barely drive my e90 only because its a lot of fun to drive but anyways here is what the car came with when i bought it;

    1986 325e Automatic:(
    custom blue
    m3 fronts (mismatched) seats and m3 rear seats
    17" mille miglia cello on 205 40r yokohama
    US ellipsoids
    Unknown brand exhaust ( it sounds pretty good IMO)
    Pioneer head unit with pioneer 6x9 in the rears
    uknown tweeters and front speakers
    two amps; 1400w 2channel crunch amp & a pioneer 700w monochannel amp(just found out the pioneer amp is blown)
    he gave me a chilton manual lol
    cone airfilter

    All that for the grand total of $1800 and 10 random DVDs lol
    Car has noooo leaks whatsoever no problems at all it was the deal of the century hahah


    Small things ive done so far;
    replace dead interior bulbs - DONE
    LED rear plate bulbs - DONE
    Suspension - Bought Bilstein HDs with Eibach springs just needs install
    Bought some shadow grilles and tweeter pods

    My plans;
    DDM 55w 6k HIDs
    Smoked HELLA conversion
    Flat black or AW paintjob
    new tires. i want a stretched look so im thinking 195 40r but idk if thats gonna give me what i want
    Shadowlines
    Dark tint all around
    New carpet
    New Dash
    Smaller steering wheel
    Tuck the front bumper only b/c if i tuck the rear the exhaust would stick out and look funky to me
    Valance idk which one

    Plans if i have the funds;
    Engine swap along with a 5speed tranny

    Here are some pics i took;

    looks very nice. i like the color...

    remove the diving boards and install some euro bumpers. that will change a lot of the look. :)

                  can't say i'm a fan of plastic dumper swaps on early models; unless you weld on a rear valence. it just looks awkward imo

                    im planning to do the weld mod. im just not in a big hurry. its a dd that takes a beating.
