1988 E30 Coupe

Recommended Posts

Hi All

Back on the E30 bandwagon after selling my '85 318i coupe. Love these little cars and have a few changes to make.

It's stuck in Christchurch until I get a weekend to fly down and drive it up.

Started poking around to see what needs to be attended to.

Ordered a whole bunch of stuff: New window washer pump, new coolant level sensor, brake pad wear sensors, LED bulbs for various lights, stainless steel brake lines, remote central locking system, complete air con setup and a new sunroof handle.

Also colour matched the rear bumper and repainted the black rubber strips. Whole days work prepping and painting. Need another spare day to do the front bumper.

Repainted the rear valence and towbar. The black strip was starting to wear through to the base coat.

Picked up a parts car from Wellington. Manual converted 320i with an m20b23 transplant. Running one cylinder down though could be terminal for the b23. Posted Image

Robbing the good bits off it.

Sun visors, door lock mechanism (now all my door locks and central locking work!) fog lights, 14" BBS including a spare and all centre caps!

No pics this time round but some updates.

-Wireless central locking all go.

-Foglights all go. Had a few issues with relays, switches, bulbs and housings but all sussed now. Yellow halogen bulbs on order.

-MTech1 steering wheel. Scored it for $25! Leather was shot though.

-SS Brake Lines all installed. What a fun job, not! New brake pads and sensors too and a brake fluid bleed.

-LED interior lights and put an extra light in the boot too.

Long time no update! Its in great shape and just gone over 400.000km!

-M20B25 Swap

-Manual Conversion (G240)

-Poly Bushes

-Koni Shocks

-King Springs

-Recaro Seats

-Ultra Racing Front Strut, Front Subframe and Rear Strut Braces
