The coastal cruiser!

1987 BMW E30 sedan in Bahama beige

It was bought totally stock and barely running. First point of business was to get the vehicle back to a solid reliable state. Carried out a major service flushing all oils, replacing items from gaskets to accelerator pedal bushes. All coolant hoses replaced. Rebuilt power steering pump. Removed all electric window motors and cleaned as they were seized. 

As it was purchased:


After all maintenance done and back to running well, it was time for suspension.


CAtuned premium coilovers (full coilover in rear)
10KG front / 12KG rear
New wheel bearings with stud kit

A quick interior tidy up and fitment of the RenownUSA - 100 Silver


Now we had a great little cruiser. Nothing fancy with crazy modifications, just keeping it simple and reliable for those hot summer days. Mechanical sunroof open, windows down and enjoying the greatness of a BMW E30.
