    1983 323i E30 25,000 miles

    After all the work, I have taken t to a few shows but my unit will only hold three cars and I have four, so it's last in first out so this one will soon be hitting the classifieds

    Thanks guys, it's time consuming going back and forth to the main dealers and the biggest thing now are the bumpers I have a decent condition front to go on but need to source a rear, it's £570 from the dealer so hoping a decent used one will come up

    New pillar trims, which means removing the rear window and riveting the new one back in on the e30

    The nearside lights backing had gone yellow so went very reflective and it looked very yellow, a friend had a set of correct 'hella' lights for the near side so I swapped over my brackets and metal surround rings and now the front of the car looks much better ( I think anyway)

    Time has come to get the wheels sorted and new period tyres fitted. I have the original steels which are on the car but I also have a set of bottle tops... Do I make the car a bit jazzy and fit the bottle tops or just keep it on the steels???? Answers on a postcard I'm torn

    How do you mean about getting rid to a dealer?? Don't sell it you mean? I don't use social media but I do have a login to the zone, if it ever gets on to Tapatalk I'll have a look at positing it on there as well As I say, it is NOT perfect but it is straight and it does present well It's imperfections are pretty minor for the age of the car and it's been a balance between having the bare minimum paint and keeping it original and I think I have found it, or at least I'm happy with that at this point once the bumpers are complete Just looking for shows to attend now

    Urgent ... help needed car road trip

    Well you would never believe what it actually was, once I looked at it In daylight I found the original cigarette lighter jammed in the mechanism The previous Owner told me he lost it and had recently purchased a new one, so I assume it must of called out in the closed position So that was good news
