As beloved as the E30 is to many auto enthusiasts, at some point they’re going to become too old to cost effectively use as a daily driver. Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe 325i was effectively used as just that, but is its price just too effectively costly?
This is why we live in the best time for driving. The roads are restricted, gas is expensive and cars are becoming numbing transportation pods, but you can buy a BMW E30 or an Alfa GTV6 for peanuts and go tear up twisting country roads whenever you have a free weekend.
If you love weird engine swaps, E30s, six speed transmissions, extreme project car hell and going super fast in a straight line, this 4G63 powered BMW has it all. While some might ask why put a turbo Mitsubishi engine in a BMW, we can only applaud the efforts of the creator of this awesome E30.
Sure to bring some warmth to these short and cold December days, this 1988 BMW 325i Commercial is half suggestive sun screen endorsement and half E30 sales pitch. Nothing like 80s BMWs and sun worship to cure the winter blues.
In the Middle East, eight women have banded together to race cars against men in a notoriously male-dominated society. They call themselves the Speed Sisters. They are pretty amazing.
One week ago, I rediscovered pictures I took inside BMW's closed-to-the-public motorsport museum. Those images were four years old, however, and their pron was limited. Now someone has YouTubed an off-the-cuff video tour of the same building. McLaren overload, anyone?
17 BMW-based teams showed up at the '08 Arse Freeze, which makes BMW the most numerous marque at the race. Why is that? Well, BMWs are practically race cars right out of the box, with great suspensions and big brakes, and the incredible cost of repairing a 20-year-old example and/or getting one to pass California's…
One of our eagle-eyed readers tipped us off about this incredible BMW value he spotted on eBay; Sean suggested we include this car as a future Project Car Hell contestant, but we think it's, uh, special enough to deserve its own post. Note matching valve cover, door sills, and speaker surrounds; this car means…
An upright citizen of matchless character has posted BMW's pricing sheet for the 2007 335i coupe on e90 Post today. According to the sheet, that spanky new twin-turbo mill is putting $3000 psi in upward samolians pressure on the 3-Series:
Why you shouldn t buy this car: The 325i is not exactly handsome or particularly well-built, and there are plenty of meticulously-crafted, spicy hot Japanese sports sedans swirling around that give you more of everything for a lot less money.

Surprise, surprise: the former purveyors of evolutionary styling have produced yet another mutant. It s out with forty years of restrained elegance, in with ten minutes of Banglized bastardization. Someday some scribe will tell the tale of how an American car designer convinced the Bavarians (of all…
Test vehicles are like junketeering journalists at a dinner party. They arrive fully loaded. For some reason, the 325i that landed on our driveway was an exception — save the sports suspension and a brushed metal dash. No 255hp engine, iDrive, active steering, autobox or Universal garage opener (Han Solo need not…
