    Euro smiley head lights.
    Rear headrests













    Debating about IS spoiler. Yes? No? Black? Color match?

    Wow. That is immaculate. Great find. Definitely go 215 if you haven't already. I have 205-40-17 and find the ride a bit harsh.

    Yeah definitely, thanks for the tip.

    Good Lawd! Park that at the local BMW dealer some would think it was new.

    Congrats on finding an amazing survivor. Can't wait to see what you do with her as long as it's "tasteful"

    Haha

    Agree. Although I wouldn't be opposed to a 5 speed swap.

    Buy another one to screw with. This is a small gold mine your sitting on. Moding the shit out of it and driving it in illlinois during the winter and your pristine car will be just another rusted crap e30 within 4 or 5 years.
    Totally agree. Nothing crazy just few original parts to complete it. And it is sitting in the garage not seeing winter or even rain.
    As of now it is sitting in the garage and my 2017 Lexus IS is sitting outside 😂

    Any other future plans with it? Do you want convert it to a stick shift or leave it as is?

    Also, how and where did you find such a low mileage car?

    its only problem is rough shifting into reverse. So a swap to manual is a possibility here.

    Got it from an older gentleman that had a collection of European cars BMW, Mercs, and Alfas.

    yes I agree an IS lip and spoiler to be added.
