    Hi, my names Laurence and I live on the little sunny Isle of Wight. I got this e30 last year and have been doing bits and bobs to it. I have lots of plans and hopefully I keep hold of this one for a while

    Anyway enough waffling and time for some pictures....

    Thanks, still needs quite a bit of work in my opinion to get it how i want it. I replaced the interior and wheels since buying it as the old ones were worn and looking very tired.

    Hi Laurence, love your E30, it looks pretty much sorted what else you got planned ?

    My daughter is off to the I O W tomorrow for the week with the school, she went last year too and loved it.

    The overall plans are:

    -Get some bodywork done and get the car blown over
    -Give the engine a good service, replace all belts headgasket etc (might even get the head whipped off and port and polish it)
    -replace all bushes (front end is getting done this week) and parts that could perish

    Then clean religiously
