      It runs. My truck runs. Finally. Now if I can get a seat mounted, clutch bled, cluster in and fan wired up I'll have two cars at the old school reunion.

        I'm going to be mounting mine pretty soon. I was thinking of just using the same method of using a trunk sized template, marking the holes than laying it back over the trunk and mark the trunk. But I was probably going to try to use the bmw instruction template first since it at least gives measurements. If I can figure it out I can provide my measurements in an easier format if you haven't already done it.

        This was much easier the first time around when my spoiler came with a trunk lid attached...

            I know someone that had their airbag explode upon impact. Needless to say, I would never have one in my car.

              in an e30?

              I'd leave it on newer cars but given that it was retrofitted into the e30 3/4ths through the lifespan, and 25 years old at best now. I can't imagine it was very good when new.

                Anyone drive a normal z3 coupe before? Always thought it would make a decent small DD.

                  Considering that most of the parts off z3s are upgrades for the e30 I'd wager you're right. Unless you have more than one dependent. Then not so much.

                    Drove a 50k mile 3.0 Z3 coupe today, loved it.

                      Might as well go for the Z3MC, especially considering the crazy money people want for plain z3 coupes being "rarer" than M's. interior looks much, much better on the z3m too.

                        I would agree in most cases, but the car he is referring to is a pretty fucking clean car. Hard to find the low miles cars anymore, especially for a decent price.

                          This coupe was a late model M54 model, with like every option. I cant afford it but I can dream, If any of you does want it though let me know, I could try to find the owner so you can skip the dumb dealership consignment.

                              That is pretty neat! My great grandpa's truck is a similar story, grandpa bought it in '67, I'm gonna save it from the weeds growing around it maybe this winter:up:

                                I love those. I came >this< close to buying a local rare GT model last year. With some wheels and springs and ipd sway bars they can be a nice car. It's no E30 though. The auto is swappable, but I don't think it's near as simple as the E30 swap. And you're in Portland, which is ipd volvo parts central.
