16yr olds $1000 E30

Recommended Posts

Hello there BMW Fans!

My names Brock & i've recently bought my 2nd car (Bmw E30 320i 1989).

This is not the best looking e30 in the world but it's mine :), It was a great buy to! only $1000 the only thing wrong with it is the alternator needs servicing (still need to do that) & the front shocks are completly stuffed (purchased some new ones), one door is fully stuffed (someones backed into it, got most of the dent out possible with a hammer and a piece of wood :P).

What i want to do:

1. Buy a new drivers door.

2. purchase some 17" wheels (not sure what yet).

3. Buy some "low" springs 25-35mm drop.

4. Buy a M-Tech ii bodykit.

5. full body paint Gloss Black or FireEngine Red.

Well heres my old girl:

Finally another member in the North. Welcome.

And +1 to painting it red. Also, these would look mean on a red E30 TM Link.

Hello Brocky...

Glad to have you about on the forum...

I'd hazard a word of caution to mod's on your car at your age... only for the insurance hike your no doubt looking at / potentially not getting insurance...

What i want to do:

1. Buy a new drivers door.

2. purchase some 17" wheels (not sure what yet).

3. Buy some "low" springs 25-35mm drop.

4. Buy a M-Tech ii bodykit.

5. full body paint Gloss Black or FireEngine Red.

I'd check with your insurance company about lowering and increasing wheel size....

not sure if you have to mention you have add'd a factory bodykit to your insurance or not...

car looks in good condition tho man...

Not too sure what your saying there, but everything on the car is factory (No mods what so ever) only thing i'd concider a mod would be the sound system lol.

Ps. is that a good thing or what?

Thanks mate, But if it costs anymore than $25.00 theres no real point i can do a full service on mine for $30 or get someone to do it with parts for $70. Thanks mate!

I don't think Hella smoked headlights came factory, but they are a very good thing _b

To be honest i think they seem a bit nanaery. I was thinking some advanti stalkers white. But not sure.

Yeah I wouldn't buy them either tbh. Get some dish.

Welcome to the forum, and congrats on your purchase!

Ellipsoids are a type of headlight found on Facelift e30's such as yours. They are the later type of headlight, and use a projection system.

"Smoking" is a method of darkening, part of or the entire headlight for nothing but aesthetics, nothing wrong with it, I personally like the look. They are not factory however. You can purchase them direct from Hella, or there are several DIY versions around also.
