    Hello all, based in the UK and have had my car since Feb. 2008. Hardly had any use and has been in a state of storage and more recently restoration since. Was bought as a track car but is being returned to a road car now.

    I have lots of parts missing, so will be looking for some spare in the classifieds more than likely.

    Here's a couple of before and after photos:

    Hey Phil, I am located in Canberra. The car is still LHD thankfully. I think the owner that tried the conversion got the interior apart and pulled some parts out of the engine bay and went, yeah I am over this. So now I have to track down a few engine parts and interior parts. So I will have to ask you about part sourcing and the like.

    Well it is about time. After about 2 years of lurking on here and trying to learn as much as I can. I have finally managed to purchase a E30M3. It is a 87' DS US spec car that went from the US to Japan and then finally to Aus.
    However the previous owner has tried to do a RHD conversion so all of the interior is gutted. So I need to rebuild it all, and also work out wiring. So expect lots of questions from me in the coming months as I try to get this car put back together and started again.

    Cheers

    Hi All,

    New here and not an owner yet, hoping that will change soon!

    I'm based in London, however travel to the US usually every 6 weeks with work in varying locations - next trip in Austin in August. I'm not new to BM's or E30's, but keen to add an M3 to my collection.

    I would ship a car back to the UK, so will place up a wanted advert in due course.

    Tom

    Hi everyone,

    just wanting to say hi and introduce myself to the community...

    I'm from Toronto, Canada. I've got my Diamond Black '88 M3 four years ago. It's got a few mods on it. I've been meaning
    to actively join and participate on the forum for quite some time, but for one thing or another hadn't, but I'm here now... hopefully on
    an interesting journey.

    Cheers,

    Loved the cars from the start. Genius designs and perfect layout made wrenching easy and everything just made sense to me on the cars. Anyway after some talk he asked me if I was interested in buying an m3. I thought he was talking about the e92 and I told him someday ill have one but not in the budget at this point in my life. He said no no I have an e30 m3 I am trying to find a good home. Omfg he says he will sell it to me cheap. I'm drooling at this point. I tell him some peoples cheap for one of them is 20k. He laughs. Tells me the story. He bought the car for his son. He wasn't interested in it other than having a car. His son was having a baby and needed to buy a 4dr practical car. He gave his son 3000 for a down payment on a Subaru and in exchange got the rights back for the m. After hearing this I'm totally throwing a rod. Go look at the car that weekend and it's amazing. I was worried about the condition of it after talk of purchase price not being enough to even buy 2 s14 connecting rods. After I told him I wanted the car but it might take a bit to get money together as I just bought a house and was remodeling it to move in. He promised he would hold it for me until I was ready. Too good to be true. I snapped some pics got the vin checked for rust. Battery was dead so I didn't get to hear it run. I didn't care if it didn't have a motor in it it was going with me. Finally got the house to the point where I got my girlfriends blessing to go get the car. It's here and Ive been tinkering it trying to get a few little things in order. Any advice as to what I can say to my loved ones about why I'm so gaga about this machine? They think I'm gonna run away into the sunset with my new midnight lover as the misses calls her. Thank everyone for the help and advice I've taken from here and I hope to be able to contribute as we'll.

    Hello, my name is Spencer and I'm a an addict. I am 28 years old and do industrial electrical testing, work mostly in va/nc.

    My nearly year long acquisition process of getting my dream car where it belongs ended 2 weeks ago when I brought home my third bmw. It's a diamantschwarz metallic 88 m3. All original except for the recaro sports were removed and in their place are a pair of corbeau gt seats.

    Met the previous owner while testing some switchgear at a facility in Roanoke. He was our contact we were working through and a very kind interesting gentleman. There was a interlagos e92 m3 parked outside the maintenance shop and I asked if it was his. We started talking bmw and he had this twinkle in his eye. I didn't know at the time that this man was going to make my dream a reality. I had a bronzit 4 dr eta at the time and had an e28 525e for a time in between. Loved the cars as I wou
