    Just a few miles from you - Both my kids have (had) E30's as Daily Drivers (ix and IC) and my current Daily is a 91 325i with 285,000.


    DSM is not a mecca of car culture but there is a small community of German car lovers here..

    Glad to see we have a lot of Iowa r3v'ers. It would be awesome if some of you could chime in on my springtime meetup thread : http://www.r3vlimited.com/board/showthread.php?t=303195

    I'm trying to get a big group together, but being in Chicago I don't know the area very well. I'm planning on making a trip out over the winter and was hoping some of you could suggest a couple possible locations for me to check out when I make the trek out there.
    Thanks in advance, I hope to see you guys out there in the springtime!

    Everyone vote for Greenwood.

    The $5,000 would fund a race track consultant to conduct a feasibility study of redeveloping the original track alignment with current safety regulations.

    Link to voting website:

    Cliff notes - Vote once a day everyday through the 21st of October for a 3 mile midwest road course named Greenwood. Votes go towards a Grant to fund a race track consultant.

Not sure if any of you are members but some of the stuff and drives they do are pretty neat. Almost everyone else has e46 and e90 M3's or M5's.
    I was at that event, in my E46 M3 lol.


    I live in Cedar Rapids, but travel statewide for BMW CCA events. Hit a few PKG events each year too.
    I drove an 88 325is for 6 years, but now daily drive a 90 325i with Bilstein/Eibach, Ireland sways, 16s with Star Specs, lightweight flywheel, 3.73 LSD, UUC short shift kit, power leather E36 seats, M-tech 1 wheel and "is" front lip.

    Also have a track prepped 94 332i and 03 X5 4.4i

    We should all drive out west for the E30 picnic next year

    Also, saw a super clean black e28 in clinton the other day. I was going to work otherwise I would have followed :P
    If I can't make eurowerkz I still wanna show off the car, so if anything comes up post up in this thread. Even bmwcca events.
    And another topic, was in Davenport today with my dad at kimberly bmw and we test drove the new f30 335i for the drive for usa event. My dad was shaking when we got back :)
    Did the black e28 in Clinton have a front bumper? I'm in Clinton quite a bit, since its right across the river from where I live. I see a couple of different e30's there but never another e28. I also have a white 535is I drive around the QC area too. And as of this week my e30 325ix is back to full health and I'll probably start driving that around. The e28's both have mye28.com decals and the e30 is sporting a r3v decal.

    I'm from the banks of the Illinois side of the river in the QC, you know, the correct side. LOL I love going over to Iowa for the cheap gas though. I've got 2 e28 535i's , a e30 325ix and a 2002 project. Always up for something to do.
