View Full Version : "Winter car" - 1988 BMW 325is e30

Here's my other car, which also happens to be a BMW e30. This was my daily driver for a year while working on my other car, as well as a "test bed" of sorts for trying parts on. It's now my winter car. It's been changed around a few times.

It's a 1988 325is, Zinnobar Rot color on black leather sport interior. 2.5L I6 making 165hp and 156lbft. 5 speed manual. Fully loaded, as it was the sport model of the time period. It's pretty much the same car as my silver one but with more options and a different engine.

Haha, I love how your "winter" car is better than my "summer" car...

Looks great.

Thanks guys. I do like the red, have to admit it looks nice on this car.

Here's a picture of the day I got it.

That is indeed a striking difference. You sure care for your cars quite a bit Linkin.

The BBS wheels are nice. If you ask me, those will look better on your silver E30 than the Dino Stella wheels.

The offset isn't satisfactory on them, they're not wide enough. I like wheels that push right out to the edge of the fenders. :)

How far out do the Dino Stella wheels stick out? They don't look like they stick out much.

I don't have any good pictures of it at the moment, it's much more noticeable in real life but this shot gives you an idea of the fitment in the front. The wheels on the before shot are the same as the BBS, give or take a millimeter.
