    1990 BMW 325i

    Thought I would finally post the "new" E30 here in the member rides. Literally stumbled upon this car while looking for an E46 Touring to replace my ZHP that got totaled by hail. While I found it in Iowa, it had spent most of it's life in San Francisco, California, and had never seen snow. So clean under the car!! It also only had around 75K miles on it! While it wasn't perfect (dents, a scrape on the drivers side quarter, and so on) it was super clean. Interior was mint, and everything worked. Cruise, AC, all gauges... Under the hood was the same. All stock, all in great shape. So, while I wasn't in the market for an E30 (wanted a winter car), I could NOT pass this up. Especially at the price the owner was willing to sell it to me for after learning I had owned a few before this one.

    Once I got it home, it was time to bring the car up to snuff. Had the car detailed, paint corrected, and dents removed. Once that was done, I took it in for a good tint job, as the dash was perfect, and I wanted to help keep it that way. With all of that done, I got to work installing AST coilovers from my last E30, picked up a set of 16x8 Style 5's and had them refinished in silver with a polished lip. I also installed the Mtech rear spoiler from my old car, as well as a Momo steering wheel. I might switch that out for an Mtech wheel, but haven't decided yet.

    Next up I have a set of sport seats I need to recover and install, I need to pick up an is lip, and get to work on the stereo. Nothing crazy, just a Luke Box I have, some good amps, and a new headhunt with modern functions.

    Trying to not go too far with the car. It's such a surviver that I want it all to be pretty reversible.
