Owning this car has been a wonderful experience. After winning the auction I drove to Fresno with my dad and drove the car back home to Los Angeles. After having the car for a couple weeks some leaks presented themselves, which wasn’t unforeseen as the car had sparse use over the past 20 years. I had the engine refreshed and redid the suspension to ensure the car can handle the many more miles I plan to put on it.
Owning an E30 M3 has been a dream of mine for quite some time now and this one really fit what I was looking for, a California car with moderate mileage in an uncommon color, but something I wouldn’t feel bad driving hard.
For me, buying this car was somewhat of a “meet your hero” moment, and I was worried that the car might not be what I thought it would be. Thankfully that wasn’t the case! It’s by no means a fast car, but the driving experience is truly exceptional. The chassis is very well balanced and the engine is very peppy at higher rpm, perfect for windy roads and canyons!
I feel truly grateful to have the opportunity to own one of these, and hope that there will be many joy-filled miles ahead!
Thanks for the update. We’re sure you will have many more miles, and don’t be scared of meeting your heroes, they’re usually great! Congratulations on the win, and thanks to 687ARCH for listing this one with us.
