1979 BMW 3 Series Review
Cheap as dirt, easy to work on, unique car.
Rusts while you look at it, has no performance compared to E30.
Yeah, It's A Beater, But It's The Best One I've Owned. — For reliable, daily transportation, you can't really beat an E21 chassis. The M10 engine is nearly bulletproof, and everything on the car is so simple to repair. I removed the engine and gearbox in about 2.5 hours by myself. It gets better than 25 MPG, an oil change is hardly more than 20 dollars, and the best tires in the world in the stock size are about 55 dollars each. Stock, the car isn't that much of a performer at all, but it's still fun to drive. Uprating the brakes and suspension, fitting a better exhaust and intake would really transform the car. Lowered with some oversized wheels, the E21 can look truly mean. Or, 13 inch steel wheels and an abundance of chrome make a classic statement. Watch out for rust, though.

Head Turning Coupe With Lots Of Power.
I originally went to BMW to purchase a 128i as a 3rd car to drive on the weekends. I drove it and liked it, but then drove a 135i and LOVED it. They didn't have the color I wanted in the 135i, so I ... Read More
