    I always buy OE. Not sure if there is an aftermarket, though.

          Damn dude! That sucks! I hate when there is always something wrong! Don't go VR whatever you do on the HG:) I'm just waiting for mine to go to shit...
          And on a side not... So fixed mine up. Driving n all:) but still stupid stumble.. Only when it's cold tho.. When it warms up no more stumble when I hit the throttle. I'm kinda thinking it's the cts? What's your insight? Is there a way to test it maybe?

          Also what is the other sensor in the thermo housing?

                One sensor for gauge cluster, one for DME.

                    Anyone here running RC090s on their E30s?

                    Thinking about going this route with adapters or fill redrill.

                    Would love to see a car in person.

                        Anybody ever heard of an 82 e30? Turns out that euro car I picked up is not an 83 after all. It is in fact an 82 323i only 15xxx e30's were made in 82 compared to say 85' like my eta there were almost 300,000 produced there were only 17,000 e30 m3's produced over 4 years.

                        I found all this out because I can't even find a damn coolant temp sensor for this car anywhere.

                                I wanna get into that have been out for a couple years, but wouldnt mind doing it again.. hmu and we should make a day trip or weekend trip??
                                Fish of a 1,000 casts huh. I don't fly fish but I have my fair share of nice rigs for our tributaries.. Had a bobber down last week at Daybreak park (east fork) thats usually a rarity though, fought like a native, and spit the hook. Some of the nice holes that usually hold fish are running a little quick from the rain the past few days though.

                                So tomorrow, ill be looking at an e30 for $500, the infamous lost title "but he knows the PO." situation... How do you guys usually go about this, in Washington state they wont recover a title if its found to be salvaged. Can I do a vin check to confirm in fact that the vehicle has no reported accidents?
