Honestly, even if I had bought some of the less nice examples that I was considering during my search in 2008, I'd still love my M3. I bought a high mileage example with a cool history....probably much nicer than many out there, and I never tire of learning things about the car. The E30 M3 is a mechanical "car guy's" dream car! I have absolutely no desire to buy a newer BMW!
Only yesterday, after some research and a little help from member's here did I finally figure out how to pull the dome light over the pass door to replace the bulb, only to find out the bulb was fine after all (with a little twist!)...and that the bulbs in both dome lights are most likely "the original" and "now rare" red tipped bulbs! Such a little thing, but cool nonetheless.
I can't wait for the next project.....if Spring and warm weather will "finally" arrive and stay here in PA!
E30's rule (we've had 4 in the family) and the M3 is obviously the "prize" E30!
Ready for Pocono!
