What Would You Do With an Imported E30 Touring?

That’s what my friend and I have been contemplating for a few weeks now. He imported this 1989 BMW 318i from Germany, things snowballed, and we decided to document it via YouTube episodes:

I don’t need to tell you that these are great cars. We started with an e30 for the affordability of both cars and parts, front engine/rear wheel drive setup and a timeless design.


Don’t be fooled, that’s not a standard German plate - just a temporary plate to get it to the docks.

We’ve been going back and forth from E30 Spec, stock restoration, canyon cruising daily driver, swapped drifter or bagged show car - but I think we’ve made a decision.


If it were up to me, I’d like to chop the hatchback off and weld it on to a coupe to make an E30 hatchback, but that’s a project for another day.


Mmmmm, a nice clean European interior...

Check out the episode and let us know what you would do with it. As for us, we’re just having a ton of fun learning as we go. My friend is the owner of the gray E30 in this video I shot a while ago, so I’m confident that we can make this old station wagon look even better.

Why do I spend so much time in parking garages?

For now, we’re filming new episodes and hunting for a cheap, running E36, if you know what I mean.
