Smile E30 Love

Well I took some pictures a while ago and thought I would share a few with you guys. This was just before I put the 318 away for the winter. I will also let you in on my plans for it: Fix my control arm issue by replacing them and also adding M3 offset bushings, Sway Bar upgrade to a 22/19 set (spec e30 size), and install a 4.10 LSD to replace the open diff. I plan to have my work done in March and have it ready for an April 12th track day where I will take some video for you guys. Now without further ado, the pictures (I have done no touching up or enhancing yet):

With the upgrades you list, it'll be pretty much a new car. Great shots

Thanks Guys, I just want it to be warm here and put the Mazda on vacation and just drive the e30 until it becomes unbearably hot. Oh yeah I just replaced the Sealed beams with some H1/H4 Units from checking them out in the garage it looks like a good upgrade.

Agressive driving I suppose, sometimes they get warm and pop out. I think I have an extra around from the last time when I replaced 3 of 4. The thing I really like about the car is that the exterior is basically stock, just lowered and clean.

No one said they didn't like e30s

Oh and I don't like it, its too over the top and too heavy in the front. When I get done with my e30 i hope to be producing similar HP numbers if not a little higher all without fucking up the light weight of the car.
