    My First E30 from Argentina

    Hey guys, greetings from Argentina! I just got this car recently, according to his documentation it´s a 1983 318i. the strange thing is that the bumpers and the lights are of a e30 post. I know it's possible swap the bumpers but
    I'm not sure if it's possible swap the lights. anyway, the car is without engine, im 19 years old and my only dream is this car.
    unfortunately I do not know much about mechanic,
    but I hope I can learn something with this project.

      Looks like you have quite a project, but to me it looks like a complete late model E30, at least from the photos. My assumption is that this car is a 1990-91, and would have had an M42 or M40 engine instead of an M10.

      Any pics of the engine bay or trunk interior?

      Good looking E21!

            You can enter the last 7 digits of the VIN on a decoder like this one to see the build date and which engine it originally had.

                            Yes, its a trip for my school. I will be in Buenos Aires for a few days 2/24 - 2/26. I think the day times are scheduled but the evenings are free.


                            Tomas (Im guessing thats your name) keep it up! Let me know if you need any small parts for me to bring, my bag will be pretty light
