    New to me 1990 325i

    I wasnít in the market for an e30, but a friend of mine relocated and no longer had storage for it in the northeast. Iím a bmw fan and currently own an e46 m3 and a 535i msport. The car has about 140k miles and is still pretty clean. It has new Koni shocks and h and r race springs and sender wheels with Bridgestone re71R tires. The biggest let down is that itís an automatic, but I have plans to fix that down the road. Right now Iím just trying to get it cleaned up because mechanically, it seems great. Hereís a couple pics to start this thread:

    Beautiful and obviously well sorted. Love that color combination. Just about finished with the manual swap on mine. Had to replace the differential to LSD at the same time. Can't wait to see your transformation!

          Thanks, it will definitely be a slow moving project. Ideally, Iíd like a drivetrain with about 200-225 whp. I think LSD will be in my future as well.

            On the white e30s, I prefer the front lip to be color matched. I started sanding it down today in prep for some primer and later alpine white paint that is in the mail.

                    It definitely took a lot of elbow grease to get it to where it is now compared to when I first got it.

                        I keep looking at those seats, they must have been re-done as the lower part somehow doesn't look stock to me....

                            Iím starting to think so as well because I think the color is just slightly off from the headrests.
