Awsome Wagon — This e30 wagon was imported form Germany to Canada. It was originally a 318 wagon. But it was upgraded with am M42 engine from the 318is. Suspension is also lowered by 2 inches. All windows are tinted limo black. A really fast and good handling grocery getter that see time at the track too!

Pros: Handling

Cons: My e24 looks better

Fantastic Car —

It is a black four door E30 BMW 325i. I love it. It has lowering springs, black 17" wheels, K&N intake and much more. It has a black interior which sucks sometimes when its hot but looks great on a black car. The car is a dream. It handles amazing. There is almost no body roll at all any more, with my suspension upgrades, and is pretty fast in the straights. But what I really love is the noise. It creates the best noise I have ever heard. Especially after the cold air intake. You hit 4 grand on the tach and the things sounds like a monster about to kill you. It scares me sometimes. I love it. But the best part of it all is the looks. It got a beautiful paint job before i bought it and it looks gorgeous! With the Eibach springs it sit nice and low and tucks over the beautiful black BBS style wheels. Occasionally i will stop while walking away from it, turn around and just stare. The coolest thing about it too, is that I paid only $2250 for it. Only had to drive a few hours to get it. Right now i could sell it for around $5000, (but never would). It was a great deal. I love this car so much, some people are worried about me, but truly it is a fantastic car!

Pros: handling, looks, fun to drive, pretty much everything actually

Cons: a few engine/electrical problems, not great gas mileage

Bmw 325i E30 — This is a fun car to drive. I have driven it everywhere and it is a good little car. It has more than 300k miles on it but it is still quick. BMWs have a good repeutation. That is why their slogen is "the ultimate driving machine". I love this car.

Pros: It is a quick little car.

Cons: It has some little noises when you drive it.

Best Bmw For Your Money. — I know I gave it all 5's, but this truly the best car I have owned. Every time I drive it, I am satisfied with it's performance more and more. The addition of 15x7 wheels and bilstein/vogtland suspension makes this car an incredible driving experience on the road. I have had to make a few repairs over the course of my ownership, but even replacing the clutch bearing was an easier job than I had thought. E30s are renowned for being hearty cars, and the M20 will run forever granted you periodically replace the timing belt/water pump, adjust the valve gaps, and keep the crankcase filled with fresh oil.

Pros: Outstanding build quality, high performance even stock, timeless looks.

Cons: A little boxy, trunk is too small

Read Above Statements — I loved it because it was very rare. It was only made in Europe and never imported to the U.S. NOTE THE EURO BUMPERS AND BODY KITS!! FRONT AND REAR FOG LIGHTS!!! It handled amazing for the massive amount of miles it had. The gas mileage was not the greatest, and the engine was the (small 6) aka m20b23 inline 6. It had a noisy valve train and injectors but it was so fun to drive. It got a lot of looks too. The styling was full European. It was the base model (rare) no power options at all except mirrors. It had the no-hole center console manual steering rack, euro model only lsd differential and short shift package. Man, I miss this thing. Parts were very hard to find, and the thing was not easy to work on. It had the euro only fuel injection set up with an airflow meter that you could not find anywhere. Infact, I called a dealer and they located one in Germany!! it was $1100. Thank God I had a spare.

Pros: give it up for Euro

Cons: Clutch was stiff due to a leaky clutch slave cylinder, Fuel milage and noisy motor

My E30 Bmw — It is a solid car and handles well. Pulls hard out of corners. Gets many looks from passers by, small so it is easy to park and get around. Good gas mileage. Tons of fun to drive, tight and quick.

Pros: Handling

Cons: Costly repairs, hard to find parts for upgrades.

I Have A Love Affair With Cars Built By A Guy Named Hans — Ive owned 7 BMWs and I can say good and bad things about them all. However comparitively this 90 325is is one of the best cars Ive ever driven from any year. It's quick agile and has enough overly power to not leave you wonder what car just left you at a green light.

Pros: One of the best cars ever made

Cons: timing belt....get it changed when you get one

Classic German Car! — If your looking for something that is reliable, quick and has that reotro feel i would definatley recommend this car fully. BMW doesn't even make cars like this anymore. If your mechanically inclined and know your way around a car, it is pretty easy to do most of the upkeep and repairs yourself. Specially concidering the dealer charges just about 100 an hour for labor. This car handles great in corners as well at high speeds. I'd compare it to riding on rais. The draw back of the car i'd have to say would be the lack or acceleration to match the handling. The acceleration is pretty decent but still lacks the get up and go of some other sporty cabrios out there these days. This can all be solved with simple having a turbo or supercharger installed. Overall i would give this car a 8.5 out of 10.

Pros: great handling, easy to work on, very very reliable

Cons: needs more of the line acceleration.
