Re: Nice AMG

Well me and the wife had a good few hours in it yesterday and it certainly moves along but the ride is firmer than my 330 sport .The overall quality is ok but the vision behind even with the very good rear camera was very resrictive. Would I part with 37K ?

Re: E46 v E36

I had an e36 318ti sport and it was the dogs :bmw: :bmw:
Really good fun and very reliable but started to go down hill rather fast.
I have had two e46 330 `s (hopefully still have one) and both marks are a big jump from the e-30 in every day driving and both are very cheap to maintain .

by the sounds of it you have a low mile chromie (i have one of the same year). Theses are only going one way price wise and an original car with stock engine will always be worth more. Unless you going to get a full on conversion by the likes of Danthe an engine swap will likely only devalue your c...

Hi Mart, I don't own an e30 but an e21 with a m20b20 engine from an e30. The e30 community is I think a bit more open towards customization. That is why I also posted this question here in the hope I get a better answer. Here is a pic of my car. https://i.imgur.com/1s1JzT3.jpg Hell of a car you hav...
