Hey all, old member here but finally got a new metallic beige 320i auto after a run of bad luck with my previous e30s.

Plans for the old lass are a manual conversion at some point, potentially a 2.5 swap at the same time or perhaps something different depending on whats around at the time that I have the funds.

So far Ive started refreshing the suspension with new bilstein shocks and sport springs to just lower her a smidge and to let the wheels fill the guards a bit more. The next step will be most if not all suspension bushings and potentially adding in a rear swaybar while also beefing up the swaybars a bit - not sure at this stage though.

Anyway just thought Id say hi again as I havent been around for a very long time. Photos to come

Haha cheers! yeah I like the 4 doors, easier to get stuff onto the back seat :D

The old wheel was a bit worn and wanted something that had a classic look to it without having the cost of a nardi wheel to it :drive:

Haven't seen many e30s in this kaschmirbeige-metallic, the guy I bought it off said it was more an e36 colour or something though I'm not too sure

Nice, it's a rare colour only normally found on cabs and tourings, saloons got Bronzitbeige.

Has it still got the paint code sticker?
