  • 21 years of ownership

    This forum seemed a little quiet so I thought I’d post a quick shot of my E30 M3. I bought it for 15k when the 15k rule still applied. I probably drive it once or twice a year, which I suppose makes it a garage queen, but it’s definitely not a cream puff.

    Hoping to get a few things done on it over the winter and will share progress here.

    Nice. Let's get the forum moving in the e30 section. What's the story? How many miles? what you working on?

      It's my third M3 and I originally bought it to be used as a track toy, back when E30 M3s were used as track toys. Over the years I have slowly returned it back to a road car. As it sits, it has Recaro SRDs in that fantastic confetti print, though I have some Uberkaro fabric I might redo them in, a bolt in cage, and a Turner Motorsport J-stock suspension. Otherwise, it is stock aside from a Supersprint sports exhaust.

      I'm planning to replace the entire cooling and braking systems over the winter, as well as install a new clutch and associated cylinders. I have a carbon fibre replica airbox that I'd like to put on after installing new throttle body gaskets and whatnot...I haven't decided if I want to install a Miller MAF and WAR chip yet. If the economy picks up, I may purchase a KW V3 suspension and sell the J-stock set up, which I love, but is overkill for a road car.

      Luckily the engine is healthy - 190psi +/- across all four cylinders so a teardown there isn't necessary yet.

            No kidding.
            I had a new rear panel on order for 7 years.

              Not much to report. I have a garage full of parts and I am slowly making some progress.

              Current project: dash replacement. I have the old one off and a mint NOS unit ready to go in. Can’t seem to post any photos so you’ll have to take my word for it!
