    German 318is M50 & the "new" 318i

    Hi my Name is Jens and this my Thread for my little 318IS M50 Swap called "Emma" AND my "new" 318i for the Winter
    I live in Germany / Hessen and work for Harley-Davidson.



    Before i buy the E30 i drive a BMW E46 ...its nice looking car with a great interior but i got to much fu**** electricstuff and i dont have the right feeling when i drive it...i need more contact to the street, i want to feel what the Car does and in my opinion the BMW E30 is one of the greatest Cars when you want that.
    Its a lightweight classic car with a great bodydesign ...and ! you can fix EVERYTHING without a Laptop :D

    August 2013: I was looking for a good E30 and find a 318IS in "Brilliantrot". The Color is so flashy between all this grey and white and black Cars i love it, but it needs a lot of affection because the Red do not really like sun.

    here the first Photo ...the W201 / 190er Babybenz in the Pic is a old Car of me, a friend drive it now



    After a really really long search we (friends and i) found a great workshop place. Its a old plastic factory.
    We pull out all the old Stuff and start making it our private heaven.



    Do not forget the bodyshell on the right ;) its our E30 M50B30 Turbo Project ...Photos below.

    an other Photos of our E30's. All together is tricky because....1 Car always is broken xD or something else.
    Overall we have 8 E30's :)

      guten Morgen!

      herzlich willkommen auf R3V. Wir alle haben die Sucht. Deutsch-Engineering und Innovation ist schwer zu schlagen!

      Looks like you have a project before you. Based on the garage I would say you have it all in hand. Great pics of the E30 family in their natural habitat.

      Thanks for posting and keep it coming

      E30 ├╝ber alles!

              Some News___________________________________

              God and Bad News....more bad than good ...

              First i got my tool to get this rubber mounts out of the rear axle. Works really good ...i was surprised






              The Rearaxle gets now powder coated ...hope it comes back before christmas.

              To the next Pics i have nothing to say.....:hitler::curse::dot:







              specially the second photo is why i could start crying -.- i have absolutely no idea how to fix that.
              or should i say i cant fix it? i have some trouble with my health so...hm we will see...
              i have the repair-sheet from bmw but....none of us here can weld so good that anyone say "yes sure i will fix that...." :(

              ah and before i forget it...i need a new tank ......

              a few days ago the Strongflex stuff is arrived and i started to refresh some parts of the rearaxle.





              Good News? We got a Club-shield now....

                  Impressive first post and welcome to the site. What I'm surprised by is that German's that like E30's have not started to venture down to Spain or southern Italy for clean chassis for their projects.

                        The tail lights are original E30 but they were glazed (!? -> "lasiert").
                        A guy from ebay did this.

                        thx. Hm yes ...if you have the Money you could do this. But i dont have so...^^. No German Papers, long Distance....such things.
                        I bought it as an Daily-Driver....this Project was not planned :)

                              some short News....

                              24.12.2014 my powder-coating guy called me and say i can come and pick up my parts :mrgreen:

                              i am really really happy with the quality of his job! After removing the rear axle from the car it really looks bad but now its so shiny :D.













                              .... and my rusty tank -.- ....fu**** expensive peace of sh** :hitler:




                              Maybe before new year we start welding the big holes in the rear (wheelhouse!?).
