Car: 1991 E30 318i LUX
Location: South Wales
I'm a car enthusiast (first word: car), 19 years old and already onto my second car. I still have the first (a 1995 MK3 Astra 1.7DT) which I was given for free because it was wrecked. I spent nearly two years doing it up and now it is nearly finished. Its been on the road for two months and when I finish the last few things I will be selling her on to help me fund this BMW.
The E30 coupe has been a favourite of mine for a good while, and when a 4 door in great condition came up with a recent top end engine rebuild, new shocks and springs, new exhaust and brand new 17s I couldn't resist. I am going to pick her up hopefully some time this week from the previous owner and will be handing him £560 which considering all the work thats been done on it is a fair price in my opinion.
I have no real experience with engines, my experience gained from the astra is in body repair, painting, filling and generally taking the whole thing to pieces out of sheer interest. I worked on wiring, rust and leaks, and generally making it look better. Apart from an oil leak, the astra's engine was good enough for me not to meddle with.
The BMW won't be stripped like I did the astra because I am no longer in school with all the time in the world and no need for a car.
