The latest daily E30

10 posts in this topic

IMG_0655.PNGHi folks, had this a while but just been tarting it up, sold the convertible, no use to me during winter and was after a decent unmolested E30 as my daily and found this little gem, just a baby 318i auto (for now) - came on bottle caps but stumbled across mint 15" basketweaves (the mrs was talking to her hairdresser who had some under his house for years, lucky find!), removed the go-faster stripes it had and did a 4 stage cut and polish while the weather was nice. Sourced a decent stereo to match the orange light interior (from Bonnie Scotland of all places - matches really well and fixed up a couple of glovebox torches - got a mint reupholstered mtech steering wheel (from Ireland) via ebay and currently in the process of getting some msport seats reupholstered in the original indigo stoff fabric, also fixed the stuck odo with some new gears - will be a little near - minter when done:) - oh yea, and got some front fogs coming too

good spot :) was just trying out the usb option at that point with my trusty stick with the entire Rush discography on, in fairness the usb option is the one thing that lets the unit down as it starts from track 1 every time you switch it on, so just use bluetooth/phone

no worries, there's units in repro etc that you're no doubt aware of - JVC for eg that have 240k + colours that can be configured to match with rca out but they don't look retro at all so went with this one
