Your First BMW - what was it?

Looking through some old photos I found a pic of my first BMW, a 318is purchased in 1990. It was a gutless little machine but I loved it. Two door, manual with a sunroof (also manual winding)

Here is a pic.

Nice thread!

Mine was a '84' 323i E30 coupe. Back when 18's were massive! Works VSSD and they weighed a tonne!

Also notice the twin dump pipes at the back..

E30 Hartge

My first BMW was a Hartge H23. It came off the factory as a 1985 323i but then converted to H23 specs and sold new with big valve head, lumpy cams, extractors, exhaust, suspension, yadda, yadda ... went well for the period but a dinosaur by today's standards. Still wished I had it.
