  • After 3 years in storage, she's back! Everything feels right again.

    After 3 long years, I finally got my baby out of storage. Incredibly, after checking fluids/connections and getting the oil pressure up, she started right up with no hesitation. Then it was off for a drive, emissions testing and registration. Passed all with flying colors. I was really nervous about getting her out of storage, but she was phenomenal considering all I did was put Stabil in w/ a full tank of gas and cover it in a climate controlled garage... YMMV, but I highly recommend Stabil prior to storage.

    How she sat for ~3 years, while I was in SF & NYC.

    Covers off! She's so dirty... Must get her detailed. I never buffed her during my 12 years of ownership. I think it's time soon.

    She got reunited with her older sis. My old project car that landed in much more capable hands! Was bittersweet to see the e28m5 in this fantastic condition.

    Major props to my buddies and the Northeast E30 M3 crew for getting the fever started a couple weeks ago. Esp James, Andy and others who I can't remember their usernames. Magnus, we missed you bro!

    I have so many parts/upgrades stored away, but going to enjoy her at current state for a while. She'll get full tune-up w/ all Motul fluids in a couple weeks when I'm back in town.

    Will need to find a place to keep her in SF so I can bring her down. Glad to know everything feels right again!

        Agreed. I fall in love with her over and over again for sure. Nothing like your first love! Especially when she appreciates

          Car is looking incredible! Glad she started up without any issues.

          Hope to see you around the Bay Area when you bring her down; I'm located in emeryville and am always on the lookout for fellow owners. =)

                Don't take another E30 ///M away from the Seattle area! If you want you can store her in my garage :wink:. We should go on a drive before you leave.

                  Thanks! For sure. My goal is to get her down before the Monterey Historics, hopefully earlier. Need to find a safe and reasonably priced spot. Will be great to meet the bay area crew!

                  Word! Great we at least got to meet. Please let me know if you make it west. Will do on my end.

                  There are tons of E30 M3s in Seattle aren't there? Where do you live?

                        Beautiful car. My car is currently sitting in a secure garage in SF for about 200 bucks a month. If you come across a tandem garage I'd be happy to share the space with you and split the costs.

                          I've considered keeping multiple cars in the city. If I come across a tandem will definitely let you know And please do the same

                            I think I've seen you driving around up near Greenlake.. I live in the Greenlake area too and have a stock-ish looking Diamondschwarz.
