    April 2017 Car of the Month: ArdaMk2

    ***Editors Note: Believe it or not, I've tred not to feature a balance of cars and not too many red E30s, but my attempts to get a variety are currently failing. Luckily, one was a M42, then a M20 and now a S50, so its not all bad.... Maybe I will go a few months with just white E30s to balance it out, then some blue ones, because America!.. Seriously though, I met Arda a few years back and his car has evolved quite a bit and when my other COTM cars couldnt make the deadline he came through at the last minute. I dont think anyone will be disappointed with this choice. Congrats Arda, you are April 2017 Car of the Month!***

    Story behind the car:
    -
    My brother had an e30 when i was in highschool. I always loved it. I knew i'd own one some point of my life.

    I bought this car in September 2013, searched craiglist for months to find this gem. The previous owner bought a brand new STi and wanted his e30 to go to a good home. Bought the car for cheap and started modding right away.

    Coming from being a VW enthusiast (mk2,mk1), i was instantly in love in love with E30/RWD platform. My addiction for e30's began with this car. I've probably owned upto 12 at this point.

    With the help of friends (Jp_slick, nickflic3, dwhe30, kman_e30, and many more!) I can say this car sits the way it is because of them.

    The information on this forum and the contributing members on here have been really helpful on my e30 journey. Heck, most of newfound friends are on here.

    Nonetheless, thanks for featuring my car for COTM. Stay classy r3vlimited!
