Thanks! I'd like to remind everyone that next year, 2016, BMWCCA is having a big blowout celebration in Monterey to celebrate BMW's 100th anniversary. The club is holding Octoberfest the week after the Monterey Classic Car Week. They did this in 2014 and the turnout was incredible. BMW is the featured marque of the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Laguna Seca (aka. Festorics).

I just signed up for the vintage/classic "Roads to Monterey" tour from Boulder since my E30 is now eligible at 25 years (and sporting a historic plate).

If you've been saving to make one trip to a national BMWCCA event, next year will be worth the wait.

Yes, see links in my signature. They are 15" I found on eBay Germany in 2006. You can buy new ones from BMW now but they weren't making them back then. I had them stripped & refinished so they really are like new.

I actually sold this car to a collector in 2007 and bought it back in 2010. He had in in a warehouse & never registered it so we're still the original owner. I won't sell it again though. I'll show up at St. Peter's gate driving this car.

Cheers!!

very nice, this is exactly how I love to see an E30.. Well cared for and not a hint of dirt.

Ive been thinking myself of ditching the 17" meshwheels and going for 15's. It just looks right!

Believe me, I did a lot of research before having these wheels shipped from DE. H&R Sport, Bilstein Sport & 15" styl 5s. That's my formula. It's just the perfect drop, IMO.

I did the same springs & shocks on my 90 E30 M3 but did not get near the same drop as the 325. Major disappointment but the car was much more planted in the twisties and less harsh over poor roads. Go figure.
