E30 BMW 325i

  1. I drove my uncles today and I think I'm in love. What a fantastically fun car! They paid $3000 for it a few years ago and may sell it soon, and if so, I might buy it. It runs great, but needs a bit of TLC to make it look great but it'd be a fun project car for sure. It was white with black leather and a 5 speed.
     
  2. I has one, I wuvs it to death
     
  3. there are no bigger engines for the E30 right? except for the M3
     
  4. The M3 has a smaller engine actually
     
  5. Don't think so. It's got a straight 6 and more than enough power.
     
  6. I wish i still had my old E30 320i....
     
  7. Ya they're great, we have one that's a Track car. The power train is completely untouched- stock with over 200, 000 miles. But it's gutted out inside, has a full rollcage with race buckets and 6-point-harness. the only performance mods are slightly better suspension and REALLY BIG AP brakes. they're really fun cars. I get to drive it on the track friday <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/grin.gif"></A>. I think the power is like 190ish
     
  8. I almost wanna buy it, but with over 200,000 miles on the car I'd be kinda leary to buy it.
     
  9. Leaks tranny oil, gas, Wheel bearings and bushings on suspension arms wear out really fast. But it had a bit of an accident last week, so me and my dad are going to completely restore it to brand newish condition. It'll run and look great once we're done. there will be pictures <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/grin.gif"></A>
     
  10. Buy my uncle's, not yours.
     
  11. What is so good about these cars?

    EDIT: Reason I ask is I am thinking of buying a second cheaper car to get around in so I don't put too many km's on my main car, and an E30 325 may just be the answer.
     
  12. On Supercars.net E30 is like same status as R35 GTR
     
  13. - rwd
    - no electronic aids
    - light(ish)
    - plenty of grunt (sounds good too)
    - room for 5 + bags
    - handles super after only minor mods
     
  14. lol my bad
     
  15. BETTER, BECAUSE JAPANESE CARS HAVE NO SOUL.
     
  16. It's just one of the greatest cars ever made, never mind why
     
  17. I want one for my first car.
     
  18. They look really good, they are simple and RWD.

  20. Depends what version you are talking about
     
  21. The E30 M3s had 4-cyl 2.3 engines, while the 325i had a 6-cyl 2.5. Admittedly the M3s had more horsepower (230hp in its most powerful form), but the 325i had more torque (230Nm).

    I was driving my dad's completely original one-owner 87 000km alpinweiss 1987 325i Coupe yesterday for close to 6 hours. It's such a fun car. The engine is such a masterpiece. Not only is it really grunty, it sounds EPIC, and it's really powerful throughout the band. It's also pretty revvy (redlines at 6000), and it's also a nice GT car (wasn't all that tired after 6 hours in it yesterday). It's not a pretty-looking car, but it looks good in its own way, provided no #$%#tard hasn't ruined it with aftermarket bodykits and all that shit. Unfortunately, most have been, and almost all of them have around double the mileage that my father's car does (at least the ones I find for sale here and in Germany).
     
  22. oh ok..thought they had less cylinders but more displacement
     
  23. The Sport EVO had a stroked 2.3, which took it up to 2.5
     
  24. Psh, I'm sure it had less ccm than the 325i anyway <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
     
  25. haha, yeah it does, by about 30 cc (2467 as opposed to 2494) <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
