Hi guys after selling my Estoril M3 few weeks ago, I went old school and bought a 1988 E30 M3.

117kms

Koni/Eibach combo

2.5" single exhaust
Smoked lights all round

To Do:

It's a very tidy example but I am happy that there is work for me to do on it too

There're some aspects of the e30 that could've used some extra attention during the design phase but overall, it's a dynamic piece of history. Certainly a car I would be proud to own. Nice pick up

What made you swap out the e46 M? Did someone offer you ridiculous $$$ for it or something?

Had a bit of a play with some friends wheels to see how they look.

1) BBS LM 18"


By adinl at 2012-04-06

By adinl at 2012-04-06

2) BBS RS 17"


By adinl at 2012-04-06

By adinl at 2012-04-06

I prefer the 17" look as well as RS rather then LM's.
I am also going to keep an eye on ebay on some Style 5's, which are like RS's but without stepped lip. for now i have ordered some bits to freshen up the engine as well as given my OEM seats to be retrimmed in leather.

then plan is to put the dogleg box in and 3.7 diff ratio
