1975 BMW 2002

Do you guys even read these intros? Probably not! I mean how many times can you hear me say that this is one of my favourite types of builds, that the owner/builder is a craftsman, that the photos are great, etc etc? Well, you’ll have to hear it again, because this is one of those […]

BMW E30 V8 $2010 Challenge

What better way to kick off the new year than with one of the most popular platforms in the word for modifying, the BMW E30. This E30, concocted by the team at Vorshlag, was built to compete in the Grassroots Motorsports $2010 Challenge, and then went on to win the $2012 event the following year. […]

V12 BMW E30

When I look back at the 4 BMW E30s I’ve featured on the site in the past, it’s interesting to see that only one of them retained it’s original motor. The other three were powered by an RB26DETT, an E39 M5 V8, and an E60 M5 V10. So that means we’ve had 4 cylinder, 6 […]

E30 M3 Restoration

I’ve featured a few E30’s now, and I’ve said numerous times that they’re universally loved the world over, I don’t know what it is about them but they just seem to push everyone’s buttons. VDubbin recently submitted this one to me, a full and very thorough restoration including detailed rust-repairs, acid dipping, lots of bodywork, […]

It looks like the RB26 E30 that I featured last October is finally finished. Click here to go back to the old post where you’ll find links to the owners build thread so you can read up about the completion of this crazy 3 series.

RB26 E30 BMW

Thanks to Jeroen from Speedhunters for kindly throwing this build my way. Once again, everyone’s favourite car (or should I say, the Internet’s favourite car), the E30 BMW, get’s some major lovin’. This one’s getting it’s new heartbeat from Nissan’s finest, an RB26DETT (with both T’s removed and replaced with one big T). Purists look […]

V10 BMW E30 M3

I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone say a bad word about E30 M3’s. Maybe I’m not listening hard enough, or maybe they’re just one of those cars that are commonly lusted the world over. I just stumbled across this awesome build on VWvortex. The car not only receives an engine swap, but also new […]

E30 M3 + E39 M5 V8

This car is an insant favourite wherever its posted on the net. It seems everyone has a soft spot for E30 BMW’s, and this one is definitely praiseworthy. I’m not one of those people who turns up their nose when a person chooses to use a motor from a different manufacturer for an engine swap. […]
