View Full Version : Migration from old school VW to old school BMW

02-01-2015, 09:37 AM
In the last few years I have been 50% VW (Mk2 Golf) and 50% BMW (E30, then E34).
Since I sold my Mk2, I saw this gorgeous E30 325is with full M-tech factory options, after tested drive and had a chat with the owner it became mine :) :) The price that I paid is fair, to be honest, I'd say it's lower than what is should be for a well sorted E30 325is
At this stage I don't have any plan apart from fixing some minor imperfection, I'll sell the BBS RS in future if I find another cool set of wheel, I'm not a fan of BBS RS.
Some Pic. I'll still be in this forum even though I don't own a VW ATM :)

This has been my weekend shopping trolley for 2 years, 1989 E34 535i, the Mrs needs the gigantic boot for her supermarket load :)
E34, from my point of view, is the best car that BMW has ever made, no modern BMW can compare to its build quality and reliability.

Never realized you had the 34, its gorgeous.
Pity my 'migration' won't be this cool.

Ryan, your both cars are all VW, no way you could migrate out, stay in VAG family :)
That's right, I haven't exposed my E34 much, only a short thread in BMW forum
an E34? that just happened TO ME AS WELL! Hahaha (http://www.bmwforums.com.au/showthread.php/42487-an-E34-that-just-happened-TO-ME-AS-WELL!-Hahaha)

Interior looks perfect too :)

Beautiful car! Always love the older 3's and 5's since driving my dad's old E36 318 is.
I was never able to afford a BMW in my student days, VW was cheap and easy motoring.
Wow seeing your E30 reminds me of how beautiful they are!

New wheel is fitted. it's a 3 pieces JDM wheels, made in Japan, not sure who made them though.
Black with chrome lip matches the car quite well.
I know, I know, some of you will say 'it needs lower' :) yes it'll come next.

That's looking good! :appl:

As an old-school oldie, I don't think it looks too high - but I do think it looks a little uneven, in that the front and rear appear different heights.

Whatever you end up doing, the ultimate goal is to enjoy driving it. :3gears:

I'm sure you will. :D

That's right, PO of the car has changed the rear shock but I don't know if he has put lowered spring on or not. A set of lowered Eibach spring is on the way, once it arrive I'll fit the front spring first to see how it looks.
