    Hi there guys new to the bmw world and i must say i am loving it already yesterday i bought a 1990 bmw 316 2door e30..... Why because i have always wanted one lol like i says im new ro the world of bimmers but already there is alot i want to do and learn

    Well where to start i have heard alot of things about the 1.6 e30 is it true you can put 318 parts on to boost up the hp? Im sure i heard some one say something about a ecu off a 318.and a throttle body but can anyone confirm this and maybe point me in the right direction? Also is it possible to fit cruise controll to my already addord e30?

    Thanks in advance guys im sure we will talk more soon

    Hi mate and welcome,

    Firstly you made an excellent choice buying an e30, I'm on my 3rd one now lol... And secondly there is a heck of a lot one can do to an e30, take it from me ... I've just dropped a 24v engine into mine out of an e34 525i and I'm planning on stroking it out using either m52 2.8 internals or m54 3.0

    An e30 is a great base car to modify providing the shell is a good 1.... Pics pics pics

    Yes mate all the work done by myself, the only thing I can't lay claim to is the exhaust which I had custom made from the manifolds by prospeed custom exhausts. The build went brilliantly and I'm very pleased with the result. The m50 engine fits proper snug in the bay but look right at home in the e30

    Hi guys wow wasn't expecting such a response lol.... Wow that conversion sounds awesome!! Any pics of the engine bay would love to see it and wow shuhrut that is looking proper nice!! Where did you source your parts front? I will upload some pics asap but im using my phone at the min laptop out of action :( but nice to meet you guys

    Was talking to someone today and apparently pretty much any engine our of a e30 will fit so thinking 325 with 328 throttle body hehe and a e36 set of leathers will take some time but watch this space!!!!
