This car stock is 168HP, after the Chip + Intake it is supposed to gain +18HP + 15lb/tq.
It may seem like a lot of mods, which it is, but I can assure you it has all been tastefully done. I like my cars OEM+, with great performance while still maintaining classic BMW taste. This car handles amazing, and is not too low for any type of daily driving as long as you aren't jumping it. I can imagine this car would really do well on the track, or Auto-X race. It pulls very strong through every gear and on the freeway gets 24-28MPG at 75MPH with a steady foot. On the street, I get 16.5-19MPG pending on your foot.
This car gets all kinds of looks from everyone, and I really enjoy driving it, but I have an opportunity that I cannot pass-up with my father's old car.
The issues with it are this:
- Cruise Control was sticking, so I disconnected the cable, it's supposed to be 70$ for a new unit(I believe).
-The left-turn signals work, but are giving me errors. When you click the bar to turn on the right signal, it works fine, but when you push down to turn on the left indicator it goes EERRRRRR..I am attending that issue as we speak.
- There is a small pressure point on the hood. Like my hand pushed a little too hard when I was waxing it(which I do every 2 weeks, I'm a bit obsessed).
- A passenger-side front fender dent, that is about the size of a silver-dollar, that came with the car. It is at the very bottom of the fender towards the back. There is some clear coat/paint chipping in just a few spots.
-The Passenger seat has a hinge issue where the left side sags a little.
Other then that, everything on the car works absolutely great. There are tons of E30's out there, but I do not think you could find one this nice AT ALL in the states, especially rust free and as cleanly modded and maintained as this one. I feel the price is extremely fair, and somewhat negotiable. I do not want to let it go for free. Like I said before, if you want to low-ball me and complain about the price, get an E30 in a worse condition at a lower price that has issues. This is an exceptional E30 that is very worth the price, which IS negotiable as there are a few quirks that need to be worked out.
When I purchased this car 3 months ago in October, it passed smog with flying colors, so I assume it will do the same.
Price as it sits is 9,500$. I am willing negotiate, but like I said before..yeah it may seem expensive, but if you compare it to a lot of other E30's out there, this one will surpass most Non-M E30's. I am apart of many BMW Forums, and everytime I post pictures, people drool and say that is exactly what they want and call it the perfect example of a clean E30!
It leaks no fluids AT ALL, and burns no oil whatsoever. It does not squeak or knock inside while driving, it's a very tight shell and chassis. The brakes are still amazing, as the throttle response and shift linkage feels brand new.
