That Which Fights Aliens by DivineError That Which Fights Aliens by DivineError
BMW bought back my Z4M COUPE

And instead I bought into more jalopy style.

So far the best 1500 I ever spent.

Bilstein shocks, two sets of tires/wheels, custom routed cooling, sport seats from the 'is' version, steering rack from an e36 and depowered, fuel injectors from a mustang, and many other things.

Yes it's a manual, I can't drive automatic.

hell yeah the E30 is a killer - none electrical stabilizers and a sportive feeling when you sit in it...

this e30 is for driving fast without worry of damage, the z4 costs too much to work on yourself or daily drive, as im always worried about breaking it

I like the previous to 1989(?) 318's because they were the lightest e30's, like 250 pounds less than the one i have

Where was that photo taken

I wouldn't exactly call a 2600 pound 130hp car a beast, more like a ninja.

It definately has personality, and its strange but i get just as many thumbs up in this car as i did my z4m coupe

Automatic? I drove one once. --ONCE!...

Driving manual helped save my life one winter so I won't go back until they stop making manuals.

I used to have an e46, and I would get another in heartbeat!

the 318 comes with no lsd stock(only bmw ever not to i think), unless you ordered it with one. Luckily this one came with one, unluckily the previous owner sold it for a standard dif

Car is NOT a car if it is automatic, and never will be, nothing can replace the feeling of manual shifting.
This is one hell of a ride, and good luck with it, may it serve you well :)

Can't drive auto? I've never heard that one, I don't drive auto just cause it's boring, any time I have to for some reason (My mom's is auto) I always end up pushing my imaginary clutch & shifting my imaginary shifter :P

This photo brought back some good memories for me. My old man use to have a 1989 2 door. It was amazing despite having to keep it under 3,000rpm (afraid for the motor). After a sharp bend that I took at speed nearly sent me into the woods the car got grumpy at me. 3 lain, one way, stop light the linkage for the shifter broke leaving us in the center lain in rush hour for an hour. She got sold after that.

Great photo, the lighting is superb, The back ground is great the way the focus distorts the light. Question: is the bulbs stock or did you put in a halogen kit.

lol, good point. I am a bit of a conservative adrenaline junkie I guess, anything the people around me and I can walk away from I remember fondly I suppose.

This is far beyond my photography experience I would have never guessed.

i want to upgrade the dif to a z3 one, because the 318i dif is small case and will explode if i do a burnout.
