Love the E30. I had a 323i as a daily drive for 20 years, it went almost 500 000 km, last years it was just parked in the garage, totally worn out. Fantastic car. I sold it lst week to friend that will rebulid it to a track car, so it will live on for a while (I hope)

I replaced it with this classic BMW.

The only thing that will make this even more authentic is a broken driver sear frame, cracked dashboard and the "alien" LCD display for the trip computer.

Hope this brings back good memories!
You forgot the constantly sticking antenna mast! Ahh, the memories.

I really can understand his feelings for the E30.
My brother had one back in the early 90's, and when I got my drivers license I wanted one too. But I didn't have the money back then. It always stayed in the back of my head, while driving every other 3 Series from E36 onwards.
Until in late 2009, when I stumbled over a very nice and also quite rare E30 320is 2-door with S14 engine. It was love at first sight.
I initially planned to keep the miles on it low (bought it with a tad over 100.000 kms) and only drive it on special occasions.
Boy was I wrong! I own some nice alternatives to drive, but in the end its always the E30 I want to get in. Its so much fun to drive with its S14 Engine and the nimble chassis. I love its clean and straight forward design.
I threw a lot of money on it over the last 3 years to keep it in like new condition and I will never give it away!

Wow that's a very nice e30, mtech kit is gorgeous. If I still had mine that is the kit i would have put on. I had an early model that hydroplaned and insurance wrote off and I was on craigslist and R3V everyday trying to find a good replacement but ending up picking up my e92. I love my e92 but I do miss the e30 and wish I can find a clean late model 325is someday or even a 318is. Keep that car clean, she's beautiful.
