BMW M3 E30 Tuning:
In the rear view mirror of the time
Not even one decade passed since the Dino era on of Germany roads. At that time, as if oversized rollers under monstroesen plastic widenings hid themselves, placed to this BMW E30 the star of the scene.

The motivation of the previous owner Antonio reflects the automobiles spirit of the time of the eighties. The career of its gulf in "how broad /as long " - format was cup-moderately output-provoked, and the ladder leading upward went inside in residents of Munich the M3-Lager.
The standard of the brilliant-red piece of splendour got already in the sales contract an extension around the sport transmission awarded. From electrical window lifters over climate and on board computer up to the check differential and the tail wing the length of the configuration list was the far over average. But before Antonio put back also only one meter with the auto, it let it create to the company Renek after stone meadows in the Franconia forest. When the BMW was after few weeks ready to be collected on the yard, it appeared all around with follower plastic parts disguised. The standard standard-Zollstock had no more chance, because the total width achieved full 2,100 mm. Around the front by rectangle lights to verunstalten, the decision did not fall in favor of a Kerscher Frontmaske with round headlights. Also the Airbrush motive on the front hood directly after the necessary complete lacquer finish of the company set right up-sprayed. With 28ėr tire on the front axle achieved the chassis immediately its natural boundary. Again the BMW moves after stone meadows, this time to the company Strassberger. The absorbers and doubleprogressive chassis feathers/springs developed by the tuner required an adjustment of the entire peripheral device. One divided the complete front area and created from a standard M3-Kotfluegel and conclude-hurries a non-standard creation. Dezent appropriate retouchings perfect the picture of the super+broad " Streetmachine ". The view back is thrown with the help of the outside mirrors from the E36-Serie, and double disk wipers do not leave a chance to the rain drop. The question about adequate tyre remains open, on which BBS understands to give a three-part response. The rear axle may be loaded of oversized 345/40er Pirellis with extreme 13x15 BBS rollers. In the real life 285/40 R15-Gummis with 10,5x1ėr-Alus places the mobile compromise on the rear axle installed. Relatively civilian 225/50er on 9,5x15 inch in front rolls strong BBS, since the unhandiness would cost the pilot and the car the rolling friction too much strength. Apropos strength. The M3 in series does not rank with security among the slow ones in the country. By means of a modified exhaust system still some Pferdchen could be made loose. For better performance throughput Strassberger a new elbow union and two flooded catalysts spendierte. The optical force cure of the outer hull required also in the interior certain adjustment. The Serienvolant had to yield a colour-glad copy of the Benetton collection. With the installation of the Recaros bought & with D W the previous owner created hand, likewise with the installation of the Sony sony-Stereoanlage indicated as 1.200 Watts of total output. So that the expensive sections do not resolve themselves in air, an Cobra alarm installation supports the standard awake dog. Additionally popular " taking along articles " were provided with a code. The market placed new expectations, and the following generation E36 set the measuring pole more highly, particularly for the tuner. Last stop car dealer? The road is the district of this red E30, which can be replaced for only 37,900 Maerker from the Showroom. Top maintained expects the BMW stationed in the autohouse Degner a lover with heart for dinosaurs.
