    Hello all,

    I was selling some parts on eBay, and someone posted up something I was selling on here, so since I drive a BMW I thought I'd sign up and have a look around

    My car - it started as a 316i Touring, but the engine died (actually, it never died, even though I did my best to kill it, it refused to give up, but I got rid of it anyway!), which made way for an M42 from an E30 318iS. I did it mainly for economy, hoping the newer M42 would give me better miles to the gallon, but coupled to the 4.27 diff it's actually quite fun to drive when I want it to be. OK, you've got to have the engine screaming for it to go anywhere, but it's still fun

    I'd get some pictures up of the car, but it's in a sorry state at the minute, so I'll not bother (I'm sure some of the E30 owners know what BMW shaped rust looks like).

    I'm off to have a mooch round the forums now

    Hi Guy,

    Welcome to the forum. I emailed you about getting me the shipping charge for the S50B30 rocker cover. Get back to me when you can. Thanks.

    Alex

    Thanks for the welcomes all

    hexstatic - Your rocker cover was collected today so should be with you tomorrow with a bit of luck If there are any problems or you aren't happy with it in any way give me a shout, it's very important to me that people are happy with the service I provide.

    BMWfanatic - I haven't forgot about you, I just had to wait until I got the rocker cover weight before I could get a quote. I've sent you a PM.

    Kevin Whittaker - Thanks for the welcome, there doesn't seem to be many E30 owners here, so I'm glad to be helping us balance up our side. I'll get some pics when I've tidied the old girl up a bit - so don't expect any this side of July . Nice looking E30 you have BTW - I need to get myself an M20 powered car at some point.
