oh, and get the RS's no questions asked, one of my favorite wheels ever.

funny, we both had/have heavily modded e92's and now we're both stepping back to old school BMW's on different coasts. Only thing is....you got to keep your e92.

anyway, best of luck and enjoy the process. I cant stop going to my garage and tinkering with this car. I can tear it apart and not worry about pissing off sensors everywhere. Just yanked the dash apart and redid the stereo and added usb connections, bluetooth, sirius and a sub. So much better on the sound department now.


best of luck!
Thanks Sniz! Yeah there's no school like the old school! I've been toying with the idea of an older BMW for years now...and, just like you, I decided to go for it. This car is so much fun! Even in it's stock form it has plenty of power and loves to be thrown into corners! I've never been one to tune my own cars, but I'm inspired now to learn everything I need to on this car. Starting this weekend I will be replacing the OBC lights and fixing the center console to start and I can't wait to get going!

Luckily the previous owner added a very sweet Alpine radio with iPod control and USB connection. I just hook up my iPhone and go.

I'm already talking with a few e30 owners about engine swap. Toying with the idea of S50/S52 or M50 with turbo. Gonna weigh out all the options and decide which route is best for me.
