    Clean 1988 325 iS DD Build

    Well after a long hiatus from E30’s not BMW’s (e36, e28, e39, e46, MINI, etc.) I am finally back into an E30. I picked up this clean all original 110k mile E30 locally with one a small spot of rust on the sunroof and underneath by the battery tray. It needs a lot of small things fixed and will try and document them as I get to them. I have a stock pile of new parts just waiting on me to find the time to install such as all new bushings, springs, shocks, light bulbs, etc.. First thing is to get all the maintenance items done first. Anyways enjoy the pictures from when I went to look at it.. It is not as clean as my last E30 (which I should of never sold) but it is one of the better ones I have owned.

        Finally had sometime to get the parts on the car, parts are as follows:

        15x7 BBS RD's
        IE3 Springs
        Koni Struts
        Strut Mounts

        I still need to work on the interior, and needs a good cut and polish as well as the wheels need to be refinished which will be done this winter.

                Well quick update I retired this from daily status after 6 months of driving it 100 miles every day. I put it in storage in the end of 2014 due to deployments, work trips, house moves, children etc.. long story short just got it out last weekend, the battery need water added to it (was on trickle charger) and charged. Fired right up and drove it back to Columbus trying to get my garage organized so I can start a game plan to get this back in tip top shape! Pictures and detailed list to follow!

                In the mean testing to read all the new developments in the community and see all that I missed!
