I've just had my hardtop headliner replaced in a black thick cushion backed material. I've always wanted to change the flat cream one I had but I thought I'd wait until it started to really sag to make good use out of it. Well 8yrs later and it was that time! I'm more than pleased with the overall outcome and I'm planning to get some more work done from this company. I apologise for the poor pic, I should of taken some before and after pics at the workshop. It just felt like Christmas again and I couldn't wait to try it out! A hassle free no quibbles £150 well spent, cheers Mark! Mention me and he'll look after you...

      So I am in the process of plumbing a M52 in to my touring and need a few last bits to finish it off. Any advice on locating the following would be much appreciated:

      - engine mounts, I believe I am best off with e28 m5 mounts? Any one go them or have a better suggestion?

      - I am keen to find a LSD but don't want to pay £600 for a 25 year old genuine one that may be knackered. Anyone know some one who could build one for a reasonable price or have an alternative option?

      - braided brake hoses, with the extra power I want to upgrade to braided hoses. Any suggestions? The stuff on eBay doesn't look that good....

      - I need a set of e34 steering UJs

      Thanks for the help!

        Hi guys — BMW E30 owners forum uk

        Hi guys.

        I have a little problem with my e30.

        So i bought it not long ago thinking there was just the suspension to replace as the car was going all over the place after 80km/h.

        After replacing the wishbones and their bushes (both sides) and front and back shocks and springs, the car still behaves the same.

        It feels like the car's steering is too light, you could almost steer the car with the little finger.

        I am sure this isn't normal and was wondering if it ever happened to anybody.

        Any help would be apreciated.

        Thank you

            Here I have a 1985 318i bmw E30. The car is a 2 door (chromie) with 67,000 miles on the clock. The car is in absolute sound condition apart from a small dent and (aproxamtly 20cm) scratch on the drivers door. The car is in polaris silver and has been lowerd on coilovers with rota bm8 rims. (All the original struts and excellent condition wheels are with the car) with regards to selling the car I'm ideally looking for a swap (E30 only) that's in need of repair as a project. Anything E30 will be considered. All paperwork and history is with the car, not a single sheet missing!

            The car is located in Guildford Surrey.

            If anyone knows of any project E30's around for sale please do get in touch too!

            Feel free to ask any questions.

                Hello everyone, I am planning on doing an m50 + manual gearbox conversion on my 1988 e30 320i (auto) and have a 1994 e34 525i touring (manual) as a donor car.

                I am in need of the rest of the parts to do this conversion e.g

                -m20 manual flywheel

                -m20 starter motor? (if the m20 manual one is different to the auto)

                -e36 m50 engine arms

                -rear diff? (I'm sure the e34 one is 3.23 but don't think it fits)

                -propshaft? (not too sure which one..)

                -e36 electric fan

                -exhaust manifold

                -e46 steering rack (purple label)

                -325i+ brakes? (are they bigger than 320i?)

                etc...

                I would also be very grateful for any tips/ideas on this conversion, where I could get it done at a reasonable price and maybe a rough estimate what I could expect to pay for labour if I supply all the parts.

                Thanks in advance!

                  Here we have a bmw e30 318i 4dr saloon for sale. This car has been stood for around 5 years so I am selling it as a restoration project. It has only covered 48000 miles and has a full grassicks bmw service history. Every single stamp is in the book including cam belt change. Please see below for more info:

                  Only covered 48000 miles from new

                  4 owners from new

                  It has original dealer number plates and rear sticker

                  All books including a full grassicks bmw history

                  Has original stamped key code in hand book

                  Still has dealers business cards in book pack

                  3 keys including valet key

                  Original invoice of sale

                  Interior is absolutely immaculate, no wear on the seats

                  Uncracked and unmarked dashboard

                  Electric windows

                  Power steering

                  Manual sunroof

                  5 speed manual box

                  Full tool kit

                  Original spare wheel jack and wheel brace

                  The car has a plethora of nostalgia and history about it, from the original number plates and rear window sticker. inside the car I couldn't even find a mark on the dash or seats etc.

                  As I mentioned it has been sat off the road for roughly 5 years and it has taken its toll on the bodywork as you can see in the pictures. Strangely enough the scuttle panels are completely immaculate along with boot shuts and boot lid. What it will need to get it back is:

                  Full respray

                  Rear arches

                  Front wings

                  Front valance

                  Rear valance

                  Starter motor solenoid has seized but I did get it started with a bump start. It ran and sounded perfect but as I mentioned it has been sat for 5 years. It drove in all gears, brakes worked and so did the steering.

                  It's a shame the bodywork has taken its toll because under the bonnet, interior is so clean plus with such a low mileage and so much genuine history for one car it really would be good to see it back in its former glory.

                  I am purely selling it to free up space so I will not listen to silly offers or swaps unfortunately. If it doesn't sell for what I would like then I will quite happily leave it in the garage for when I have time to get it fixed. E30s are only going up in value so this one back in its former glory with such a low mileage should be worth a decent amount.... yes I understand it is only a 318i however you will be hard pushed to find one with this history and mileage.

                    ** KROWN Rustproofing UK **

                    Krown rust inhibitor T40 is developed by a Canadian company over 30 years ago. This inhibitor is used in our rustproofing centres with specifically designed tools to reach all internal structures of the vehicle. The Krown rust inhibitor has advantages over other rustproofing products – the inhibitor does not dry and therefore is able to penetrate deep into spot welds and over-folded joints of the vehicle. It appears as a very thin, colourless and odourless oil, it clings to the surface and turns into a semi-jelly like substance, but it does not dry and it remains on the surface as a very thin layer. Krown T40 rust inhibitor creeps deep into crevices, spot welds and penetrates deep into any existing rust and stops it so this cannot rust any further. Since the product is oily, it lubricates all mechanical parts, such as windshield wiper mechanism, window winders, locks, hinges, brake callipers and cables and all suspension parts. It also penetrates all nuts and bolts, making any future repair works easier. The product is designed dielectric, therefore it can be used on electrical plugs and connections, preventing corrosion and loss of connection. Krown rust inhibitor can be applied over any other previously used rustproofing products, such as Waxoyl or Dinitrol with no harm.

                    Krown rustproofing is known to be the next-generation rustproofing method and it is used in vast variety of industrial applications, such as lorries, trailers, special machinery and even steel bridges. Moreover - all Canadian military vehicles are being treated with T40 product right on the production line.

                          ‘After being with my current insurer for three years of trouble free motoring, I have now modified the car past a point where they're willing to insure it. (Any mods, at all lol) Spoke to Prestige and XXX regarding a quote, with the mods listed, Prestige have almost matched my renewal from my current insurer which didn't even cover any modifications and have beaten the best quote I could find elsewhere including them as well! XXX couldn't quote me on this occasion but (not) to worry, I'm now happy!’ Aidan Nicholas.

                          If your car insurance is due soon, why don’t you give us a ring?

We need somewhere that's a nice drive to get to, has plenty of car park space for everyone (outside of their own customers) and serves food and drinks. Can people who know these areas please suggest places so that we can run a poll? Once we get the venue sorted I will create the event, and you can share it with any local north BMW groups

                                  Ladies and Gents! Dont forget that this is tomorrow! The weather looks dry, even with a bit of sunshine so it should be a really good day! We will be meeting at the Seven Points car part on the top of the Trundle, which for those that know it is the rectangular car park. Any satnav should be able to find it!

                                  And remember, beer and burger at The Royal Oak afterwards, which we shall all convoy down to together.

                                  Looking forward to seeing you, and no need to get up at the crack of dawn to get there!

                                          Hi all just joined I'm looking at the purchase of a 1994 e30. Current owner has to sell but is reluctant cos he is really fond of it.

                                          One thing owner did say was when it hits 50mph there's a shudder through the steering. This continues on motorway speed. Any ideas what this could be? Tracking, wheels have been checked all good

                                              I am looking at bringing in some E30 LSD Diff centers.

                                              I estimate the price will be £500. This can fit into most medium case E30 non LSD diffs.

                                              I can also fit if required. I am just looking to gain some idea of interest before I buy.

                                                          Odd question..

                                                          I have a two door with central locking and just had to reassemble my lock on the drivers side as it snapped a couple of weeks back.

                                                          When you turn the key to lock it is it supposed to go back vertical or (the case with my car) click over into what i belive is deadlock mode where the key stays horizontal..

                                                          Everytime i go to lock the car it clicks over on the spring into deadlock before the door pin goes down. it does lock just fine at the moment with not much effort. I just always thought it only went horizontal if you turned it extra after the car is already locked.

                                                            I know its not an e30 but is this of any interest to anyone? Delete if not aloud, 4k cash value and may consider swapping for a 2dr e30. Message for spec and detailss.

                                                              Good Afternoon all — BMW E30 owners forum uk

                                                              Good Afternoon all,

                                                              Exhaust & manifold advice please!.

                                                              I have had my 1986 m20b28, and it is time to scrap the cobbled together stainless exhaust system it came with

                                                              I will be looking at a full exhaust system in stainless

                                                              As well as the exhaust system I am leaning more towards changing my exhaust manifold to a six branch stainless, I have done some reading up and found many pros and cons (the ebay specials being nothing but visually nice and pointless, the good ones being scarce or big figures). One issue I have is my e30 is fitted with an e46 steering rack, and is obviously right hand drive.

                                                              Apart from BTB can anybody recommend another good stainless manifold which is almost bang for buck and still compatible with an e46 rack fitted.

                                                              Any advice or recommendations appreciated!
