    My beloved Project's Bryce & Julia. 87 325es & 92 325ic

    So after consideration, I've decided to finally start my very own E30 build thread. Now originally I bought a 1987 325es in Delphin but a year and some change later I also bought a 1992 325ic in Brilliantrot. This is my crappy attempt to recall and catalog my journey, trials, and triumphs with my car.

    They day I got him home. :D March 17th 2010. I didn't even know about E30's, let alone what one was.
    Onward to pictures.... I bought him for $700 off some kid on Craigslist.

    Well lets see... At first I wasn't very mechanically inclined and I didn't really know anything about BMW's. But I know there was something special about this car.

    When I bought the car, it had: Blown rear struts, almost every light on the check panel lit, no muffler, just an exhaust tube hanging by a hanger, and this shift knob.
    It actually hurt my hand to shift this car.

          Well after a while I eventually stumbled upon R3v Limited. But I can't really recall how. I don't know if I found it, or if a friend sourced me to it. Once I became aquaited with the forum, I set off to buy some suspension for my car.

          I bought the Bav Auto springs from forum member http://www.r3vlimited.com/board/member.php?u=20327 who was an absolute pleasure dealing with. The shocks I forgot who I bought them from >.>

          Oh! But before this all happened and I got "moar low" I went up to Seattle for a Northwest Nissan's Golden Gardens meet!
          At this point I knew of R3vlimited but wasn't very active. I only saw one other E30 at this meet. I went up with my Datsun friends in their 510s. My poor car couldn't keep up in the heavy rain though, so we got separated on the convoy up. Pics!




          My friend's KA swapped 510. He's PhilCas1987 on here and on ratsun.net

                        3/28/2010. Small world. But no so small considering the concentration of E30 people in the PNW. :D


                        In other news, I have finally obtained my rear euro bumper! However, I cannot mount a Zender rear apron on a Euro bumper. I is sad.

                          I sent the PO a message and he confirmed that is the car. Looked different when I got it, but the wheels and a particular crack in the windshield were giveaways.
