Hey TTI it's been a while.
Ever since i sold my first E30 i've been on the look out for another bmw but a coupe this time. 2 years later this pops up on kijiji.IMG_8282

84' BMW 318i, M10B18, With 238,xxx km's
The least desirable E30 with the old m10b18, Getrag 240, And Metal bumpers. The exterior of the car is in okay shape and the interior of the car is quite worn..
My plan for the car is for it to be reliable, comfortable to drive, but still fun to drive at autox.
So far i've ordered new control arms, ecs braided front brake lines, Acc belts, 325e blank rotors, and hawk pads.
With the nice weather were having lately i was able to go to bucks and grab some parts i needed. 325e Front calipers, Bumper trims, extra grills, taillights, etc..
When i first got the car the brakes were quite ****. Even ****tier when racing around the mexico race track and the brakes really started to warm up.
For 318's they used a lovely solid rotor and under heavy braking introduces fade and boiling brake fluid. Now that i have the 325e calipers ill be upgrading to a vented rotor and hawk pads.
Well..glad to have another car to work on and to be on the forum again. More updates soon! My mustang T5 short shifter just came in and should sit nicely in the e30.
