The build date is 9/87, so I suppose it came with ellipsoids standard.
That nut take was the first time I opened the air filter. I remember it a few years ago sitting outside in the street for a couple months, so that must have been when the squirrels invaded because when I got it, it had been in the garage for about 2 years. Paint is kind of rough up close, but looks good from 10ft out. Interior isn't so hot either, but glad I didn't do anything special, because a baby seat really wreaks it havoc on the back. I have a set of extra sport seats in the basement. Wondering if I took them apart and dropped them off at a traditional upholsterer, if they'd do better than 500$ :shock: a seat.

I didn't think elips were available before or after '89. That said, I saw a plastic bumper car with them the other day, and it did not look like an 'enthusiast' owned car so... what do I know, lol.

Heya. This E30's been my first car, and it's made me work for it. Not quite clean, but it definitely goes.

Anyway, lots of good information here. Definitely helped me diagnose some stupid stuff.
