4 doors? Fag.

Too bad you didn't talk to Everlast, he had my old trailing arms with brakes.

Kenny U Pull has a nice 2 door with trailing arms and disks. You could check there! And you COULD always go 5 lug with Z3 trailing arms.

Anyways, great to hear another E30 is kickin around in Ottawa!! WOO WOO!!

Shoot me a PM when you plan to come through this area. I should have a set still kicking around by then.

Craz azn, will do. Might be a good cruise to hear the hum of a 2 litre inline six.

Maxbell: Four doors good, everybody has an exit.
Kenny U Pull, my favourite place.

Anyway, bottom line, gotta get her running first. I was once the God of K-Jetronic but skipped all the way to Motronic without passing L.

Four doors more bes! Haha though the backseat tends to be for lackies, whereas the front seat is for girls and friends and girlfriends.

Thanks for the offer The Twin, but for now -right now- I'm going to concentrate on getting the engine running. I might get back to you soon.
Did a little poking this evening with the aid of the book I just got: "BMW E30-3 Series Restoration Bible." Great book, but the picture on the front is of a pristine red 2-door with bottle caps, just like (and not like) the heap of rust in the shape of a 325iS I have in the driveway.

Maxbell: You're right, the back is for back seat type people. It's for people you have to carry but would rather not, and it's handy for them to have their own door so that the front seat Important People don't have to get out.

That's an excellent way to justify your extra appendages err...doors

But seriously, your euro looks sweet

I like to think all my appendages are essential, though perhaps life would be less difficult if I were to start using them correctly and at appropriate times.

Yep, the Green One is just a sweet looking car.

Keep the serbian car. I am from Serbia, and I know how it is down there. They don't put that much salt as they do here in Canada... I mean an 325IS is a sweet, but when it's rotted, it's just not the same car it used to be. Btw can you get us a few more images of green car?

Wow, it sure is unanimous!

I'll stay Green! Though it's not quite as nice as Ivan's picture.

why not take the rear subframe and trailing arms from the red car and swap them over, same with the front struts too.

I have a spare front lip with brake ducts for the black car if you need it, looks like its missing from the pics.

no sweat, let me know

also, invest in a Bentley Manual...the true E30 Bible. They're costly to purchase online (Ebay $42-$70) however, free to download as a PDF (which I have)

Are you sure the IS is an IS? Seems to sit a bit high, has a single outlet exhaust...

Just wondering.
