      "I haven't fallen from my rocker"... My .02: these machines looks best with web wheels or something with a dish.

      Agreed. If i found a clean, well mainted, stock (or tastefully modified), low mileage E30... I might be dumb enough to buy it.

      Everything is for sale for the right price. Make me an offer, I probably won't take it, but it's worth a try right?

      Nice car and nice wheels... you're too far away though.

      Chapel, I always digged your car but too many miles for my needs. Sucks cause you're close and I know you took care of it. I cannot believe you haven't sold it yet.

      Gentlemen, you had my curiosity. But now you have my attention.

      An E30 can approach 300k with little effort

      Ask my friend, his car runs as strong as mine with 260k on the clock (I have half that). Sounds mean too - headers and a track pipe routed to a SuperSprint

      A quick search of stuff in NJ came up with this beauty: $15,500 is a little steep for me though...

      This looks a little more in my price range: $2800

      mileage is the last thing to worry about with these cars if they've been maintained.

      I'd agree with that. Altho I would say your car is the exception rather than the rule. In general, a lot of the E30s I find are high mileage, and poorly taken care of. The low mileage E30s I find are generally well cared for, but have insanely high asking prices.

      Your car, has obviously been well cared for. Too many other E30s have been picked up by people who were more interested in slamming the suspension than spending their money first on maintenance items.

      well sort of; After 200k or so the car becomes a beater, and when you can pick them up for under $1000 you drive em till they fall apart, i know i do

      for all you E30 experts I had one I bought from my mom on so long ago as a daily driver, but I was into old detroit iron back than Had a 69 plymouth Road Runner. The car was a 86 325ES.. now being into German cars I have only ever seen ONE other E30 325ES.. all the others are 325is.. can someone tell me what the ES stands for, or what the diff is between the is and es??? The car itself was 100% stocker.. but had M coloring on the dash and sterring wheel.. never relized it untill years later..

      the IS model has a limited slip differential and is a 2.5l six cyclinder made more for performance. the 325 ES is the economy model of the bmw. it is a 2.7l six cylinder and doesnt have a limited slip diff. it has flatter pistons and was made for people who wanted a commuter car which was better on gas and everything. still nice car but takes more to get power out of it.

    27. 12-22-2005 12:45 PM #447
      325ES is the economy version with the sport package. It had all the IS stuff. LSD was optional.
