    How NOT To Ruin an E30

    1989 BMW E30 M3 EVO RARE CAR TO THE BEST STANDARD 6 SPEED | eBay























    E30 running an E36 M3 Evo engine. The conversion was built about 4 months ago, in that time it had a complete transformation.
    She was fully stripped back, engine out and underwent a full respray in Porsche grey.
    Then rebuilt from scratch using mainly all BMW parts.
    The engine was taken from a Dakar yellow E36 M3 cab reg T13SCO which was cat c'd at 77kmiles.
    It's the 3.2 Evo engine running standard at 321hp. Engine number 60501996.
    Full E30 M3 interior was sourced at a great standard and fitted, dash is unmarked having the shell only covered 91206 miles it's in top condition.
    Aftermarket parts fitted to cope better with the power upgrade are 4 pot front braking system running off a Mazda RX7 with new grooved disks and pads seen less than 1000 miles. Spax aftermarket shocks and lowered spring set up to stiffen the ride up and really works well.
    Running a 3.64 ratio diff very snappy in lower gears loads of torque.
    Full stainless power flow twin pipe exhaust system
    Pipercross panel filter.
    Cross strut brace,
    16" Borbet A deep dish alloys just been reconditioned with the centers matching the car. I've just fitted Toyo Proxes all round at £130 a corner handles and grips like you wouldn't believe.
    Apart from the M badges and the tiny tyres, this is pretty much the perfect E30 IMO

    Anybody want to buy a kidney..?

    I must admit that is a real lovely car for a E30.

    Really like the colour as well.

    That looks real nice. Without wanting to sound too much like me....I think it would look better dropped down slightly then it'd look perfect. Wish I had some money... :(

    Very nice, agree about the ride height though, its a tad high, but maybe some more suitable tyres would fill things out a bit better.
