    I am selling my 540i M Sport on Sunday ( I hope, deposit in hand). Who has something cheap for me to try? I want something small for garage space so maybe another e30 is in my future...

      ignore the username

      Hi Chicago. I've been on this site for a long time, learning everything, not posting much, mainly because in my haste to join I chose such a lame username (and seems like the moderators don't like to be bothered with name change requests). My name is Ian, I live in the Ukrainian Village. I bought a 1990 325is in 2011 and love it, and love the e30 community and BMW community a lot as well. Since then I added an e46 touring in 2013 from Pennsylvania and drove home through the Blue Ridge Mountains and Smoky Mountains.

      bmw325_num99, I checked out your website, that 1991 Pontiac Trans Am GTA must have been fun! Some of the best stock wheels to come out of that era in my opinion as well.

        Greetings, Thor! Sounds like a nice drive home from PA. I agree about my Trans Am wheels, so nice.

          So you're getting that leg shortening surgery so you can fit in an E30? ;)

            That is probably what it would take. I miss them. I am thinking something small for my garage but that I can fit in:

            Miata
            e30
            Mr2
            Wrangler
            rx7
            fj40
            4runner
            bmw airhead bike
            bmw f650/450gs bike
            or nothing and rent a fun car on Turo when i want it. There is a Z4 M coupe on there, for example.

            Who has any better ideas for me?

                Definitely recommend the surgery, it's worth it.

                Nice! Good to meet you, twins for sure. I cracked my oil pan on the e30 2 weeks ago and that was scary but the m20 came out unscathed. It's good to have it back. Do you guys know what's going on in the BMW community around here? Meet ups, wrenching days, etc?

                      Whats up all? I had a 325is I sold to a guy in PA a few years back and he sold it to a guy in the Chicago area. Has anyone see this car kicking around? Car is s50 swapped with Houndstooth. Looking to buy this car back even if the owner is not looking to sell. Thanks!!

                            That would be sweet. I'm dying to find it. I did the Vin search and all I got was Chicago area.

                                Hope I'm not violating a policy here but after 3 years, I am selling my 65k mile 1989 325iX. I've listed on Craigslist and Car Guru's. It has been a totally dependable daily driver during fall and winter but getting some subtle encouragement by the family to upgrade to a safer / more airbags / modern car.
