    I just bought my first E30 M3 saturday moring. 88 white on black, 98k hit in the front end. My plans are to make it a decent street car and not chop it up for a race car. Already have an E36 race car so that should be easy. It will be mostly stock and something the wife can drive if she so desires. I hope to have it road worthy by november, but will need a complete paint job some time after i work all of the bugs out. I will be they guy driving around in a E30 M3 with a primer front end and patch spots, oh well. I will post pics later. I need some help finding parts. Any one know where to find a new radiator support? I have found just about all of the otehr parts I need so far. Thanks in advance.

          Cool find, we want pics! Hey I used a used rad support on my 325ic and it wasnt too bad. It cleaned up really nice and they can usually be had for next to nothing. Otherwise there is OEM which is expensive or a/m, but i'm always weary of fitment on a/m, i'd rather buy good used OEM

            Pics will come tomorrow.

            I have a chance at a set of Evo 3 fender for a resonable preice. I kind of do need fenders. it just kills my budget on other parts I need.

            Parts needed

            Evo air box. No reason to buy a stock one when i can buy an evo box.
            radiator,a/c condenser,water pump,front end parts

                I have a used AC condenser I pulled out of my car complete with the pusher fan (as well as the rest of the AC parts). PM me if interested and we can work something out.

                For new, oem parts, go here, or PM "D///M3" here on the board:

                      If you don't mind brand new parts, I get all of my parts from bmaparts.com. Look for Yves Bright he has been a great help for me. I even order nuts and bolts from them.
