So I may have seen a late model E30 with MTech things and M52 swap that the guy has had for 18 years. An original owner on a euro cabrio with Mtech II from the factory and some BSS RS's and a S14 in it (guy kept all the original stuff). I also found a 320is in great shape. All of these things within 50 feet of each other at the auto skills on base. Apparently someone left the 320is, hello Italian s14!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 Pics to come

Edit: The cabrio was owned by an Italian guy, he's a little weird but man it was nice

The 320iS is a cool car. I wonder what they cost? I know they're obviously less common, but they don't have the heritage.

Probably one of the rarest e30s on Earth.

From order of oldest to most recent, all the cars I've seen : )

Image

Nice cabrio that the guy has owned since 97. As you can see he's done some things like all new interior and top as well as a hard top and a M50 swap that he did when he bought it. Love the Mtechnic stuff on it as well : )

Image

Nice Cabrio out for a day, guy is the original owner and works at the auto skills place. He's from Italy and babies the heck out of it. Absolutely love the wheels!

Image

Nice old German man and woman in a clean cabrio, I was trying to drive closer but they were doing like 105....

Image

Oh but how beautiful this 320is was! I spent a good 6 hours working on the car with him since he was redoing some suspension, seals, every rubber mount in the car and a few other things in the engine. Nice guy and clean car : )

Image

This we saw driving down to my wife's grandparents cabin outside of Daun Germany. Awesome looking car and I only wish I could drive mine like they drive that one, just look at how dirty it is! There were a few other cool older cars that were almost as dirty but my wife was kind enough to get the M5.

At least it's all German though. Be very sad if it were being pulled by a Daewoo or something. :-P

Nice cabrio I saw in a parking garage with it's top down!

Image

My car with it's free wheels! (Had two centers but I took em off and saved them)

Image

Car that may or may not have been abandoned at the Auto skills but they won't let me touch, yet.

Image

SEXY as hell touring I saw at the Nordschliefe, it was clean inside with the Houndtooth interior and a S5* swap

Image

The wheels on that possibly abandoned one look like almost the same wheels I had on my 87 Camry, but I had 5x100.
