Bought for 4000, Chris and pals take the 325 for its first gravel test. Many things go wrong. Watch the adventure (or misadventure) that results from their trip to rally this 170hp Alpina engined E30 325i for the first time.

Nice vid. It reminds me of the recent Top Gear rallycross experiment, and makes me even more happy for recently adding an E30 to my stable.

Your 320is is a rare and really nice example of an E30. Definitely one of the best looking I have seen. I wish I had the black interior like your car.
