Every remaining E30 on the road should be going through the same restoration project !
A world full of restored E30's is definitely one I'd like to live in!

I got the same hobby too. Just got hold of an E30 with just 40000km. Planning Alpina wheels, 2,7 liter M20 engine, Alpina suspension, 325ix LSD and brake upgrade. Thats about it. WIll keep it as original as possible.

Here are some pictures, together with the E21.
Oh man, that brings back Memories. First BMW I ever sat in was my dad's Alpine White E21 (kind of why I did kylie). Shes a beauty! I'll pop over and post in a sec.

The restoration really tested mine. Part of being the first full project we've ever done like this on a car. Knowing what to expect is half the battle though and I'm happy to share any advice with Bimmerpost members who are looking to do restorations themselves.
