The time capsule e30 - delphina -

Postby b27e30 » Fri Feb 08, 2013 9:01 pm

Car came up for sale on CL and was less then 8 miles away from where I lived at the time. The ad was posted at 10pm and I saw it at 1AM before going to sleep by 8AM the title was in my hands. -grin-

Car has never been in an accident, VIN on all panels, mostly original paint (had driver side repainted at D&V autobody) Everything works and all maintenance is up to date.

My plan for the car is to keep it as stock as possible while serving as a reliable daily driver and fun auto-x car with tasteful upgrades and mods along the way. And finding another car to practice drifting on.

Anyway first day I had her

I'm going to simply show pics and fast forward to it's present state and provide updates for any future work!

Looks fun! You need a chip to get that rev limiter bumped up. How many miles on her? Are those K1s 16x8.5?

Whoa, those look like my old H&Rs and that looks like Jorge's old E30. Welcome!

Pretty car! I'm glad to see some long boards looking so good! Saw an early model 318 today that was a bit ragged :/ Keep it up and keep us posted, and a welcome to : )

Dang what a clean car! As soon as I return to the US, the plan is to find a stock e30 or bring one back with me -grin-
