Dave Duran, a Georgia resident and proud owner of a 1987 E30 BMW 325i, shares with us his passion, not just for the brand, but also for the classic E30 3 Series. The video was created by Frazer Spowart and it’s one of the most emotional stories we have seen in a while:

“This is a story of one man’s love for his car. David Duran has been driving his ’87 BMW 325i for the last 20 years, it’s his daily driver and his pride and joy. The E30 is considered by many as one of the finest BMW’s ever made and has a huge following in the car scene worldwide. Dave’s E30 is a classic example of keeping the dream alive, it looks as good today (if not better) than the day he got it and his dedication to the vehicle is quite humbling.

This is the first of many videos to come where I will be exploring cool cars and people’s relationship to them.”

The E30 model was released in 1982 and under the hood, BMW offered a range of inline 4-cylinder (BMW M10, BMW M40, & BMW M42) and inline 6-cylinder (BMW M20 and BMW M21) petrol-powered (except for the diesel M21) engines. The E30 BMW M3 was fitted with a high-revving 4-cylinder petrol engine (BMW S14) which produced 175 kW (238 PS; 235 hp) in its final European-only iteration. In total, seven transmissions were available for the various models of the E30: four manuals, and three automatics.

Frazer, thanks for sharing this story with us.

    I have the same car as he does, year, model, everything except the exterior color, and I can agree with everything he says. In an area where driving the biggest raised truck is everything, these cars bring a taste of finely tuned perfection. Theres not a lot that you really want to do to these cars to change what they are, but every little thing that an owner does do makes it that much more of a “reflection of its owner”, as Dave so perfectly put it. Long live the E30’s, and may the mirror always stay so perfect.
