Actually a completion of my first post and start of my journery in owning an e30. My first memory of an e30 was on one of india's iconic post war race tracks - Sholavaram ! The car was owned by someone who could import it then - A malachite Green e30 325i , a metal bumper model. The seed was sown .
A picture story of my car follows.

as bought and cherished as an 83 316

And my 11 year journey of accumulating bits and money to finally get close to what I wanted to build

And finally it's a m20 325i stroked and bored with a metric mechanic 3.1 sport kit with a 3.73 lsd and suspension that I thought would suit my needs

See, knew i'd make myself look a tit before too long! Second photo down, the tyres have 'steel banded' written on them in white, looks like a racing car but i've never seen anything like that on roads in the UK.

Great looking car you have there, does it still have the original carb on or has it now got a weber ?

Thanks Mart , the car came with the Weber conversion done by the previous owner.

I have an m20 in it now.

That looks really cool, if I was to buy another it would be a four door.
