The show I have been working on so feverishly is now finally complete (except for one more week this month of pick-up shots). Needless to say, LACS has been neglected. Here to start off the month of March is February’s hodgepodge – a bit delayed but here none-the-less. We have some trucks, van, a classic mustang, Chevy nova and a nice E30 BMW. Enjoy
Spotted this lovely E30 BMW in Silverlake, Los Angeles CA. The rims choice sets off the teal paint very nicely.
Check out some other BMW’s we have featured on LA Car Spotting.
1972 BMW Bavaria (E3)
1987 BMW 635 CSi (E24)
And some info about the E30 BMW 318i:
The BMW E30 is an entry-level luxury car which was produced by BMW from 1982 to 1994. The initial models used the coupe(two-door sedan) body style. Four-door sedan models were introduced in 1983, convertibles were introduced in 1985 and estate(“Touring”) models were introduced in 1987. The E36 replaced the E30 coupe models in 1990, with other E30 body styles being phased out of production until the final E30 model, a Touring, was produced in 1994.
The E30 was the first 3 Series to be available in wagon and four-door sedan body styles. It was also the first 3 Series to offer a diesel engine, and all-wheel drive was introduced to the 3 Series range with the 325iX model. The BMW Z1 roadster was based on the E30 platform.
The first BMW M3 was built on the E30 platform. The E30 M3 is powered by the high-revving BMW S14 four-cylinder petrol engine, which produced 175 kW (235 hp) in its final European-only iteration.
