Finally Got My E30!!!!!!

Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, iamcreepingdeath (Sam) is now the proud owner of a 1991 BMW 318is, as of last night!!!!

Alas, my children, you shall all remember today as the day that Sam Denny became the owner of a BMW E30, and is now officially more obsessed about E30s than he was before!!!


the facts:
it has like 180k miles on it (mostly highway), its white, has the BBS basket weaves, got if for $1700 that's right!!!

cons:
it needs a new AC compressor, and there is a shallow dent in the passenger door.
Also, the previous owner has um, shall we say modified the car not quite to my tastes, so i have some work to do, i will be ditching the super loud muffler for something more stock, getting new exterior trim to replace the trim that has been painted blue (that's right) and eventually new tan leather seats to replace the tan leather seats in there that have been painted blue. So you guys get the idea.

plans:
after "de-modding", i plan first to get the H&R sport spring and Bilstien Sport shock package from Turner, and eventually some 16" wheels, preferrable Borbet type T's.

so, what d'yall think???

and I WILL POST PICS AS SOON AS I GET A CHANCE TO TAKE SOME!!!!!!!

I am already getting oodles of help from a guy on r3vlimited.com. he has a whole tan interior for me. I am glad to be in the E30 owner's "cult"!

Car looks alright, get rid of the blue though! I hope you got the sport interior going into it, the seats are definitly better. In anycase enjoy and remember with the m42 you need to rev that sucker to have fun, its only happy above 3.5k. My only other suggestion is to add an iS sport lip to it, and paint it black to go with the rear spoiler (or is that blue too?)

An iS lip is definitely one of my next steps. First i have to persuade the lower air dam a little with a rubber mallet to go back straight. The spoiler is also painted, but i either plan to buy a new one or sand this one down. There is a guy who is willing to sell me his entire tan interior, and i may take advantage of that.
