me...
welcome to my E30 build thread. as yal know im a bimmer boy, iv copied this from e30zone, il be keeping it up to date cos theres atleast 5 people on here that are very interested.




My names euan and the other month i bought myself an e30 to tart up a bit and drive, but as with most things it fell to pieces in my hands and its turned out to be a proper rotbox, my car is actually ferrel however, i dont have the heart to watch those twin headlights back away as its reversed into a crusher.

After massive confusion due to being told it was a 325i with a 320i motor in it yet discovering it has drum rear brakes i have entered the VIN number into the bmw register and discovered its a 1986 325i some prick has obviously converted back to drum. Why would you do that, its like swapping your car for a horse. Anyway, atleast now i know what i actually own.

The overall goal of the car is to have a low, lowww euro monster thats blacked out sitting on nice deep wheels with a few cheeky engine mods perhaps.

Today me and my old man properly started to get work done on it , wev stripped out the interior to find 2 massive holes in the floor ( where the plugs are under the seats ) theyr totally rotten. The passenger footwell was also 2 inches deep in water under the carpet. Im not sure if this has got in through the lack of a screen rubber or if theres a heater pump problem?? Any advice or ideas would be welcome.

We also removed the front suspension and brakes to find both front springs had snapped. I thought the front was sitting lower than it should. First big question The bottom of the shock where it meets the hub. Is this one piece? Or does it come out of a cupped bit on the hub. The thing is sooo rusty and gunky its impossible to see, and some modern cars it can be one whole unit.

Yeah i know, makes me sad that im not gonna have any on my bimmer. I might get some BBS Rs. And my real name is Rigo. Im deciding between an e21 and an e30, the guy is selling the e21 for $600, and the e30 for $1000, so ive been saving for one or the other.
