E30 318is

About time I started this thread, I've had the car a couple of months now - still not driven it, but we'll get to that.

I'll start at the beginning. I had been toying of the idea of buying a new daily, I've never been that interested in Clios and with my 106 still not completed, I wanted something a bit cooler that I could work on whilst my 106 is being built.

I thought about buying a newer car, but that quickly faded and I decided to look for an E30. After doing some research I decided that I wanted something with facelift bumpers, sports interior and a manual gearbox. At this point I also realised I wasn't going be able to get a 325i for two reasons, price and MPG, neither I could live with.

After looking for a few months, all the cars I liked either sold before I even got to look or were priced outside of my budget. Then I spotted a 318is. I had actually wanted one of these from the outset, but I thought I would be hard pushed to find one in budget.

The car in question was this.
