Some of you may know I purchased an E30 recently. As a result I have been consumed with all things E30. I’ve been gathering parts and staying busy tuning stuff up and getting my own car in order, but more on that in a minute. I stumbled onto a pretty epic thread recently with these two machines. Two of my recent favorites. Wheels/tires/stance NAILED. The blue one also happens to sport some of my favorite wheels of all time, as well as the Mtech 2 setup, a pretty rare, super dope, factory bodykit.
Take these pics in slowly. If they don’t excite you like they do me, shut up about it.
GAME. SET. MATCH. I’ve been kinda freakin’ out over these pics all day.
Anyway, now that exciting stuff is out of the way, more about my E30. It’s a 1990 325i. Got in on craigslist in Connecticut in November. Pretty nice shape, usual issues here and there. I like it a lot.
Here it is when I first picked it up.
Since then I have been gathering parts, mostly maintenance, some fun. Like my new wheels.
They were pretty beat up, so I painted the center nuts and have been polishing the lips up. I will be redoing the bolts as well. Here’s a little more progress.
More recently, I’ve had some issues with water leaking down into the front footwells. I removed the carpet and cleaned it, and I’m in the process of fixing all the possible culprits, I believe I’ve got it figured out, but I’m allowing for a lot of real world R&D and driving it around in the rain a lot with no carpet in it.
I’ve done a bunch of other small, miscellaneous things to it not worth mentioning as well, but the largest recent development was the delivery of my new coilovers. Stoked to get these on.
I’ve got a few more parts to collect ‘til I can install them, but I’m hoping they’ll be on in the next month or so. I’ll post up that progress once it’s done. As of now, I’ve got 3 wheels totally polished and done, so tires and adapters and they’ll be good to go, hopefully not too much after the suspension install.
