glen's e30
 
1984 BMW 318i Sapphire Blue
m10, 5 speed manual

shout out to minimusprime for helping in the process of picking this classic e30 up.

all OG for the moment. we'll start with suspension and putting some wheels on it and go from there. i can't say that i'm that interested in getting into performance with this since it's in such good condition despite the fact that it has 200k on the odometer. It get's amazing mileage and although underpowered the gearing is perfect and it gets up to speed with ease on the freeway. nice and smooth :) windows and sunroof are manual crank. PO threw in some m3 seats which are in pretty damn good condition considering their age.

some upgrades in the future:
325 brakes, front and back
tucked diving boards
redo seats

Awesome buy Glen, I'm still kicking myself in the ass for not buying the 318is my neighbor was selling a few years back. I'm excited to see where this car is headed, and by that I mean I hope to see you at some auto's soon. :D

installed a new ICV. looks like one of the the PO's used the wrong ICV and rerouted some of the hoses. idle is running high even after adjustment at TB. new temp sensor going in later today too.
