            Hi All
            I'm an Aussie in Darwin, soon to be in Sydney. I've got an '85 323i coupe currently undergoing an overhaul. Build thread is "323 to 331 build" here on r3v.

                        I am in Perth. I have just joined here. I bought my 318i in 1990 and am currently attempting to restore it to as close to original condition as possible.

                          Howdy,

                          Seems to be pretty dead around here which is a shame.
                          Good luck with your car.. Although I have discovered that good condition genuine parts are getting harder and harder to find sadly.

                            Yes, I have struggled to get some parts. I found some from someone who advertised parts from a car he was stripping on Gumtree, others I got from the local dealer and I found an online parts company in the USA called ECS Tuning.

                              What sorts of parts are you after? Depends on the part really - there are now a few local online options in Australia so you don't need to automatically hit up the international suppliers: e.g. Sparesbox, Clickable Automotive, Run Auto Parts. Also Bursons, and Supercheap have responded and made a better effort with their European parts than previously, in some ways the parts are easier to get than in the past. If you're looking for e30s at wreckers, then yes - their numbers have dropped dramatically now. As for International options - Schmiedmann are pretty good out of Denmark as they have a huge range and shipping to Australia is often cheaper than the US suppliers.

                              If you're looking for a fun, cheap daily then an e30 is no longer where it's at in Australia. You'd be better off with an e36 or e46 as there are stacks of them in the wreckers.

                              For this reason I retired my e30 to weekender duties after daily driving it for 10 years and have an e92 320d for my daily duties.
