To keep the E30 as original as possible, I bought new Michelin summer tires from their Classic line: Michelin MXV3-A with the original tire profile from the 80s.

Beautiful time capsule you have there. Great engine! Do you have a record of the last timing belt replacement?

No thoughts on doing a factory 15" BBS RZ wheeh aith maybe an oem sport spring? I can appreciate the OEM look but E30's love a bit lower and fatter tire.

Ah, the wrap around console. Id kill for that.

My first BMW was a 1984 E30. Two door, automatic, blue. If only the back seat could talk.

Thank you. The timing belt was replaced in 2021 and again just last week due to a malfunction.

Today, the E30 received a special treatment. The car was in the shop for 2.5 weeks due to issues with the timing belt and the fuel system. It got Handwash (Sonax Shampoo) + Sonax Polish & Wax 2 + Swisswax Concorso. And a new indoor car cover.

Lovely car, good job keeping it original

Back in the early nineties a good friend of mine had an Italian import e30 320is, now that was fun
