Default SteadyAim's 1990 Alpine White E30 M3

I'm fairly new to the forums, but I've been around the scene due to the high influence of my brother (m kube) . Here's our story...
After saving some $$$ from my photography gigs, my dad and I decided to look for an E30 M3. The car was found on Ebay and was listed with a BIN of $15,000. It had 135k miles with a clean title and was bone stock. This all happened the same weekend as Bimmerfest 2011. Since I wanted to attend Bimmerfest with m kube, our dad flew out to Utah over the weekend and drove it back to California by himself.

Met up with him on the way home from Bimmerfest with m kube and a couple of other forum members


Now let the modding begin...
Started off by picking up some Refurbished OZ Futuras 17x8.5 & 17x9.5 et13. Purchased off a member from s14.net




Ended up picking up some much needed parts not long after that.
Recaro N'Joys w/ custom brackets, OEM Hella Smoked Euro Smileys, Euro bits, and a dtm adjustable wing


Installing the Smileys






Went on to purchasing Brand new Startec Tail Lights






We managed to fit 3 cars in my brother's 2 car garage






With my Dad's V8 Vantage and m kubes E46


A week before M-Fest VI, we finally decided drop the car on G/C coilovers






Got the fenders rolled the same week




M-Fest VI Shots






Got a "Respect Your Elders" sticker on the CF wing


Alongside my daily (m kubes old m3). Alpine White M3/4/5. My parents were the first owners and bought it brand new back in '97. Running strong at 170k miles!


Not long after...


Replaced the CF wing with a '92 DTM flap


Then the car's ECU was completely busted. Decided to drop it off at EAS to get it worked on




All the generations of the M3 under one roof


A couple weeks later, and she's up and running again!
Thanks to the boys at EAS for bringing it back to life

I'm always tempted by E30s, yours looks great and is in the most desirable color IMO. Sounds like you got a great deal on it too.

I like this thread very much. Wheels are not my cup of tea but other than that very well done.

I love the mods on your car. Very well put together! It's not your typical everyday m3.

BTW I definitely saw your picture of "respect your elders" on instagram the other day!
