    BMW 316i 1990 - Alpin-weiss 2 (MAZI)

    Hi

    This is my e30

    I live in Iceland and just imported that e30 from Poland

    316i coupe with sundroof, Automatic gearbox, only driven 130.000km, no rust or any problems!


    Im going to change the suspension and wheels, make it manual etc!

    Here are few pics of it in Poland














    But now its finally in Iceland!

    I started taking the instrument cluster apart to put a tachometer in it




    Ready!




    Much better than that big stupid clock!




    Changed both control arms and bushings in front.






    Bought brand new Borbet - A 16x9" with new tires!








    But i dont want to put the wheels under without lowering,, so i bought 60/40 lowering springs




    Im going to install those springs and wheels at the weekend!

    will post new pics after the install! :D

        That looks really clean, congrats! I visited Iceland 2 years ago and drove a rental car up and own the west coast, I'm very jealous of the roads you'll get to carve up with your 316i!

        I had no idea some E30's came with a clock instead of a tach. As quirky and charming as it is, with a manual swap the tach will be much more useful. My daily driver is a Prius C with a CVT transmission and it doesn't have tach either, but I really don't need it.

          You could probably sell that "Flava Flav" Tach to someone via ebay. A few years ago I saw a few threads where people were swapping them in for the novelty.

            Took some photos of it before the new springs and wheels, and now its on Icelandic license plates!


















            And now its time to change springs and wheels






            Stock springs




            Little diffrence










            Brake fluid change






            Time for Borbet - A






            Wheel alignment






            Very happy with it!!!








            But ofcourse im going to buy some "real" suspension later,, and do a full disk brake conversion etc..

              Looks great - the Borbets have always suited the e30 well :)

                Looks beautiful! I didn't see too many older BMW's while in Iceland so your's must be extremely rare. Looks like it'd be a fun summer road trip car.

                    Got a brand new OEM ISlip






                    Painted!




                    I like eyelids on e30 so i bought a pair




                    Bought clear/smoked turn signal lenses from FMWTuning.de




                    The old orange ones are cracked and ugly




                    The front end after eyelids, islip and smoked turn signals :D

                          I Bought new original SE sideskirts

                          They went straight to the paint shop and then on the car!




                          Feels bad to drill holes :( but it has to be done












                          Got new license plate lights






                          Much better!

                            Took few photos of it before winter storage

















                            Next up is painting the rear valance white and make the exhaust hole bigger like on 6cyl cars.
