          installed a new antenna mast today from antennamastsrus.com

          For $20 shipped I was skeptical... but I installed it in 2 minutes and the finish quality is very good

            Is that a power one?

            I just pulled the antenna from a parts car. It originally only moved an inch or so up and down. After a couple minutes with the graphite it slides up and down with ease. It's amazing, after not having a regular radio in my car for almost 3 years, I remembered listening to the radio is a real nice alternative to CDs and aux inputs.

                  It's amazing how a silly ground connection can really f*ck with your whole day, but it's such a refreshing feeling hearing your car turn on again after an engine swap :up:

                    yes factory power antenna. Reception could be better going to look into it this coming week. Got the antenna from antennamastsrus.com - works great!

                      Haruko,

                      My first E30 I bought for 375.00 - no start condition. Checked the ground cable from the block/oil pan to the frame and she started right up! Immediately did the water pump and TB afterwards. Grounds can creat a lot of issues, if i'm ever stumped at a runability issue I always try not to overlook the condition of the grounds. Glad you got it sorted!

                            my e30 was running great last night. all of a sudden this morning i turned her on. idled just fine, let the car warm up. but as soon as i started driving the engine started sputtering and studdering and had very low power. doing an oil change and cleaning the TPS.

                            any other tips on what else i should do/try if the above doesn't resolve the issue?

                              Is it only a warm issue or under load issue? M20 still?

                                Sounds like a engine coolant temp sensor?
