    Finally!!! My first E30!!!

    Hey everyone! I've been lurking here for a few years on and off, all while searching for an E30 to call my own. I've owned a few BMWs previously, but never an E30. I work at an auto body shop where we also have our own tow service and tow yard. Long story short, a 1991 BMW 318i gets towed in and for $100 becomes my new project! I haven't had a chance to really play with it yet, but it does run and drive. I gave it a quick half ass wash this morning just to knock the first layer of dirt off. I don't think I'll go to nuts with this build, mainly just suspension work, and I would love to have the upholstery redone. I will try to update this thread as often as possible.

            Thanks! Yea I was pretty stoked to find out about the lights. I bought it without a key or knowing if it ran. After $35 for a new key from the local BMW dealer, I was very pleased to find out it runs.
