well this looks to be in immaculate condition, but for those alloy wheels, they are looking out of place. an original job at the wheels would have matched better.

Buddy, i have seen this car with its original wheels and believe me, it looks phenomenal in person. Me and dad have actually just stood in front of this car and stared at it.. We both love the shape THAT much.

Hey Cyrus - Want to leave a post it note on his car? "WTB your car. Desperate. Please PM vcash on T-BHP....."

Seriously, I love the lines of the E30 as well. If I had the dosh, It would be a hard choice between the E30 and the W201. Imagine the M3 or EVOII replicas of this model. Gosh, that would be drool worthy.

Food for thought!!

Default 3 Series

Cyrus, isn't this the same one from GODREJ BAUG? I've seen it a couple of times standing near the Fire Temple.

Guys, is it just me or many others, cause I find the BMW's of this generation weird looking. But they look wicked for sure.
In terms of looks I like all the previous gen. BMW's.

The current gen BMWs look nowhere as good as these old ones.

well maintained. it's even more beautiful as it's a pre-86 model...Metal bumpers///

Most don't like the metal bumpers, but i think they look awesome. Just back from the states, and there are so many E30s there, it made my eyes water...

I believe there are 5-6 in mumbai///

1) Owned by Hormazd
2) The white one in Thane
3) One that belongs to the ex mayor
4) The one shown here
5) The one I own

Any more?

A few years back, when he was 82years old at the time (i hope i am not mistaken) a very mild mannered Jehangir uncle was over one evening and he said : "I am now 82 years old, so i thought, let me atleast do double my age in my BMW - so i did 164 on sea face"
(Not sure if this was the same BMW he spoke of though, since i think he owned a few over the years?)
