coolvegase34 is an unknown quantity at this point
Nice car, nice condition. How many miles on it? I like the looks of the e34 and e28. Very classic and timeless at the same time. Same with the e30. That is the way bmw's should look.

I believe it has 187,xxx original maybe a tad less,Well maintained my grandfather would take it to a local Bmw dealership and would have a tune up done regularly.Runs great,I like it as it will be a great family car for my fiance and son.Still learning all the little qwerks on this machine.Definitely glad to be apart of this community here and hope to learn alot along the way.By chance i was wondering what everyone is running for plugs??

Well i gave my grandparents a call last night and found a little more history,My grandparents did buy it back in 83 off showroom floor in GERMANY where they had it shipped over to the Oregon Coast where they had it equipped with everything for emissions over here and have had it ever since,It has 199,xxx original miles and has been well maintained ever since it was bought.There has only ben 2 owners for the entire car my gandparents and parents so its been a great family car and will be a great car for my family now,I do have a concern about the milage and how much longer i can expect it to last...Anyways feel free to comment...

Thanks
Paul
