RetroJamie - Loving the E30! :) I have a touring 325i in white which is mechanically great, but she would need a fair bit of cosmetic work to make her look as sweet as yours. Fancy a project? ;)

A project!! Oh no I have plenty of those already thanks. The old E30s mechanically will go on forever mine has covered nearly 230k. It the dreaded tin worm that ruins them.

The repaint on mine started when I removed the kit to have it painted due to stone chips from the high mileage. The bottoms of the wings didnt look good and I wasnt happy with a bit of rust on the doors so I replaced them. The actually shell is almost rot free. The places to look first before you go ahead with any work is the skuttle panel, (under windscreen in each corner) the sunroof, roof, rear arches (outer), jacking points, sills, rear panel under bumper and last but not least the inner arches to check you need to remove the boot carpet. Its all a case of weighing up to decide if its worth spending the money on it, bodywork repairs do get very expensive.

If its that bad maybe try and track down a replacement shell? And put your mechanics in it? Dont know if you have been on this site but its a fountain of info. www.e30zone.net

Cheers Jamie

Heres my 48mpg speed rocket! She sounds a bit lumpy (when at a stand still) at the mo but has seemingly got quicker (DMF)? Only wished i'd gone for the estate! Not enough room for the bikes! She's a quick one. Anyone guess what she lapped at? I know the cost! Scrubed two fronts (Goodyear F1's) and nearly shot a set of pads! ups :oops: made up for it by getting t~#ted somewhere nr Spa!

:wink:

Ok, here it goes. This is my daily driver now. A 1999 Subaru Legacy 2.5 Touringwagon. It is a decent car, that has enough power for daily driving and my frequent trips to Italy. Best of all, I can take my bike inside, without removing wheels and still have my son on the back seat!
