    Hello from the EastCoast, Canada

    Hey folks,

    I've been trolling the site these last few weeks, very good site with lot's of info.

    I bought a 89/90 e30 325i and must say i'm liking it a lot. RWD + LSD=FUN

    It's my daily driver. So far mods include lowered 2" w/ bilstein struts & shocks, Eibach springs, turner performance chip, Yonaka leather race seats, m-tech steering wheel.

    I juts picked up a "is" lip/spoiler, ebay fog lights and set of 15" Euro weaves and brand new Milanza HZ-1 tires for the summer.
    Since the car has spent it's 20 year life up here in the salt and snow i have a few holes to patch up for i get water in the trunk and the back seat.

    picture.

    What i was driving-Total custom front Toyota axle & 3-link suspension system...crazy flex for rock crawling. It took over three months to build.


    My new ride-


    Oh, also just sold a 92- honda HB with a built Integra b18b motor sucker would pull hard. But i'm a little old, had every kid in the city wanting to race...

      Nice, euroweaves are always hot.

      Also, I don't think trolling means what you think it does...

                lol, mine was a non-v-tec, all motor. But yeah after a couple of months of driving the civic and me a 40 year old i said that's enough of this crap....however i wanted something kind of cool, i'm not that old.

                I have never been a big fan of the newer looks of BMWs for they pretty much look like every other new car on the road, plus all i hear about them is the trouble and the cost to fix them. However i always liked the "classic" look of the e30s and after taking one for a test drive i was hooked.

                MORE PIX of my custom built rock crawler. It was a 1990 Nissan D21, i (we) cut the IFS off it and built a custom 1984 Toyota axle and custom 3-link suspention system, 5" lift...ton's fab work done. This beast could climb and get over some crazy rocks. I miss her and the sport a lot.

                I just finished bobbing the bed, took 15" out of the rear.

                        It was a v6 Gasoline.


                        What part of the east coast?
                        I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia. on my street i see two other e30s driving around, a red IX and a 318.

                        I have to do the timing belt on mine soon, who knows when it was last done? over 300,000Ks on my car.

                        What i really like about these cars, besides the RWD is that you don't need to do much to make them look good. Just lower them a couple of inches and drive 'em....

                        I'll get more pix posted when i do some work to it...maybe in the spring.

                            Hey Jeremy,

                            the car is coming along, i need the warm dry weather to get more work done. Sucks not owning a garage...part of the reason i sold the truck and got out of the rock crawling sport.

                            Check it out, don't mind all the banging & smashing...just the high lift and tools in the box. This is me on a brutal local trail called "THE CURSE" man! i miss getting out there in my truck :(
