Last week I posted some beautiful photos of the classy BMW M3 E30, one of the most beautiful bimmers to date. Clubber, Teamspeed’s member, decided to take the car for one more round of photos and…..the results are even more impressive than before.

I keep looking at them and I am amazed by two things:

  1. A 22 year old bimmer still looks better than many new cars ( I know I sound like a fanboy, but that’s my opinion)
  2. The detail job that makes that red pop

I have been looking to test drive an M3 E30 for a while now, but I haven’t had any luck in Chicaogland area, so if any of you own such a beauty, please share your thoughts or experiences with us, I would love to hear more about the car’s performance, dynamics, etc…
Oh… I need to find out who did the detail job, my 335i certainly needs one.

    Great car! Anyone who is a car collector should have an E30 BMW M3 in his collection. In terms of looks, I think the best BMW ever is the 635 CSi…

    What about the E9 3.0 CSL?!

    Sorry… were you guys talking? I wasn’t paying attention.

    Anyone know where my bottle of Jergens and my box of Puffs are? I need to make a trip to the bathroom…

    Sweet, the pics are done printing! I’ll be back in 45 seconds…

  5. Hey guys, that’s my E30 M3 out here ! I can’t believe how popular and famous my little car has got. Pictures were taken by two pro photographer friends of mine and as you can see they turned out inceredible.
    It was not an easy task to restore the car to this condition but certainly worth it !!
    I appretiate all your comments, Thanks, CAN

    absolutely beautiful! clubber, if you ever lose your mind and sell the car, ill take it please!
    in response to Horatiu B.’s question of the driving expierence, i have had the privelage of being able to drive one in excellent condition with 33,000 original miles on it. the car was not quite as impressively pristine as clubbers be still on par. its a car that regularly comes to my shop for service. i was fortunate to get the ticket to work on it. i was so stoked, and not dissapointed. it was one of the purest driving expirences ive ever had. excellent feedback and comminciation from the steering. the shifter felt perfectly period correct (just a little notchy with slightly longer throws than something more modern but a joy). the car 4cyl. has adequate power for the car. the power to weight ratio is great so there is no penalty for the 4cyl. in my opion. the engine revs freely and fast for the time period. getting into a current M3 after driving this would feel like someone shot you up with novicaine before hand. i have no other words to describe. perfectly pure and blast back in time to simpiler idelas for a sports coupe.

    @Clubber (Can): Great car Clubber! How much did it cost you to restore it?

  9. George says:

    @Gragop: My next favorite classic would be the 507 not the E9 CSL. I wish the new bimmers still had that magic… Maybe the E46 could become a classic?
