  • Has to be either an '89 or '90. The 88s had aluminum bumpers and Recaro style seats and the 91s had air bags. All of the 1988 US 325ix models were 5-spd coupes, which is pretty cool.

  • My only problem with a classic car like that: crash safety. All it takes is some texter crossing the center line and you’re a goner. No amount of nostalgia or social validation for driving something “cool” is worth that. Also the same reason I won’t buy a motorcycle as much as I like them.

  • That 325iX is a tank, such a shame to see so many 80s German tanks being battered to death and NOT cared for. Believe me when i say this, if you fix it up and make it run and drive as it should, watch how suddenly the value would sky rocket. But yes, the 80s era of BMW is arguably the last of proper BMW.

  • protip: you can get diagnostic codes by doing the stomp test! turn key to on, fully depress the accelerator 3 times in a row and the check engine light should blink out a code for you to read. bought a '91 318is in January this year, she's been my daily & my pet project. there's really nothing quite like these car, they have their own souls & it honestly honestly feels more like a person than it does just a machine. cheers Hoovie!

  • They're no longer driver's cars, they're simply status symbols for moronic millenials who don't know any better: case in point they whined to get the window controls moved from the center console where they made sense (left hand on wheel, right hand on gearshift and can operate window buttons) back out to the goddamn doors so now i gotta swap hands. That's what I loved about my E30, and it was so connected to the road you could feel it through the steering wheel, now it's just numb.

  • I'd love to drive one of these (or preferably the 2wd equiv. - I'm not sure if we got this 4wd in Europe) - but I have an e46 330i manual which I bought v cheaply (aprox $2500/100k miles) and have had for 4 years and I do think this is a better car, they are sill aprox this price. I'd love to see you do something on this - its a lot quicker and has more of the mod cons without the negatives of the electronic era - surely the sweet spot?

  • Wooow, he doesn't even know to do stuff on a Car Besides Repairing the car on his own . then he's always out to say that the shitty cars he has bought which were neglected for ages from like the 10 previous owners that it's the brands fault so it's BMW fault that the previous owners have neglected the car and that he is so stupid and has bought them in this condition, when he could have gotten a good condition One, if he had spend more money. Don't take me wrong I Kinda like this video but he's just bashing BMW all over the place and this is German engineering, form German engineers and I am from Germany these guys are definitely not stupid they know what they're doing electronics and other stuff just does fail because people neglect their cars and don't do the maintenance and regular oil changes like every 8000 of 6000 miles. Don't Let yourself get fooled in the US That BMW is unreliable BMW's are reliable if properly maintained. then they are the best cars in the world same with Mercedes partially also with Audi and VW If you want to neglect the car And never change the oiler and the fluids and everything and don't repair. then go buy a Toyota or a Vauxhall but then don't say that neglected BMW's represent like all of BMW's cars and that they're bad in general this guy is just so wrong. I understand him and his humour but like I think he got and will get a lot of negative feedback because he's just bashing the brand and that's just stupid of him. How about doing an oil change yourself then you know how to maintain a car and what it means to keep it running and keep it in good shape and you'll also keep the cost down if you do repairs yourself and you learn stuff for life .

  • I went to a private school for high school in the early 2000s and these E30s were the must-have car for many of my friends. Off the top of my head, I know of at least 3 friends who had 325is coupes, one had a '91 318is, and another had a 325i sedan. You were right about the backseat being spacious as a much thinner past me rode in the back of the coupes often. I really wanted one but it never came to pass, but one day I'll have to find one of these to re-create part of my high school experience.

  • BMW’s used to be known for the shark 🦈profile, but the "pig snout" 🐽🐷 profile on the new M3 and M4 looks lazily slapped on at the last minute and doesn’t even look cohesive with the rest of the cars design or body lines. They have made it clear that the newer cars were designed with attracting the Chinese market and its just horrible! The designer of this embarrassment (Domagoj Dukec) really f*cked it up all for the sake of china and making a name for himself, in that he wanted to “change up” the styling of BMW. Yeah, way to go dickhead🤦🏻‍♂️!

  • The state of BMW is sad. A car manufacturer that made some truly Iconic cars in the past has gone on to make nothing more than unreliable mediocrity. Even if some models of their most iconic cars were unreliable, people still love them. Their new cars might go fast, but don't have any character to them, and are unreliable and as expensive as ever. I don't know who the lead is at design for the cars, and the head of marketing, but they need to lose their jobs, and better people need to take their places. On the total reverse from this, you have Porsche. A company that thoroughly embraces the tradition they have set down over the last 60 years, and uses that to influence the design of the new cars. Their engines get continually better, the design of the 992 generation 911 that calls back to classic Porsche looks. A design team that listens to feed back from customers. People have roundly criticized the 718 Cayman for being 4 Cylinder, and 2 years after launch, Porsche yeets the 2.5L GTS model and brings in a NA flat 6 for their GTS 4.0 and GT/Spyder cars, and people love it. I firmly believe that if EU/German restrictions for cars weren't in place, that Porsche would have some even better things going on. - And then they have their real money makers, the Macan and Cayenne SUVs. SUVs that basically do everything you could want it to. I think I've seen a growing number of their SUVs on the road in the last year and a half, and I can understand why. BMW, we know you can do better.

  • I had a BMW 325is and it was one of my favorite cars to drive. Later I had an E36 which I think was a better car but not as much fun to fling around. My last BMW was an E46 which was not horrible but not as good as the E36 and where I think BMW started to lose the point. The E90's and later were crap as were the later cars got worse.

  • On the Euro e30's with the sump nut facing outwards you can change the oil and filters without jacking the car up or dirtying your hands. You can change all the bulbs out in 10 minutes, Alternator takes half an hour. These were seemingly built entirely with the Diy mechanic in mind and apart from that are very comfortable and great cars to drive and enjoy.

  • I like the E30 but they were a bit simple, for example has anyone told hoovie they have a battery for their warning light system? An old nicad that often leaks and causes malfunction. I like the design of the E30 though and those older Hoffmeister, Bracq, Luthe and Spada designs compared to E39 and E36, E46. Shame the E36 M3 and E39 M5 are so great engine wise but so ugly, but they're your best choices for performance without engine swapping (no timing belt either, not a fan of the E30 M20 engines). Get a E24 635csi with an M30, or a E34 M5 with a m30s38, or S5x swap a E30 or E34 IMO if you can't get a E36 m3 - (their best i6 imo).

  • If that car costs a couple of Grand to put right, GO FOR IT. even at 5 Grand. No e30 is ever beyond repair unless Crashed or Rotten with corrosion Everywhere. That car would be £20,000 +++ in the UK. When all Finished & looking Mint. ( a RHD 325i 2 door with full history etc maybe £30 k ?? ) In the UK People buy New FAKE service History books. & Wind Back the Mileage Many times on A BMW e30. Common Practice in the 80's / 90's. Some got wound Back by 100,000 or 200,000 miles & looked no different. BMW e30 /e34 Cloth seats Last at Least 200,000 miles usually. & still look like New. Not a stitch out of place. They Built QUALITY into every Inch of an e30/ & e34. Never be FOOLED By the BLATANT LIE, Great car Poor Quality Seats. It's " BS " you are being Conned. Fake Mileage is Fraud in the UK. Under the " SALE of Goods ACT. " I had a Renault Van. the drivers seat was almost as new at 340,000 miles. I know Because i had that van for 10 + years. it was Under 3 yrs old when i bought it. & that was a RENAULT VAN. not BMW Quality. The Rubber Floor mat was intact with no holes or signs of major wear at 340,000 miles. & was Clean & shiny Running Great all the way to 115 mph. MPH not Kms. and delivering 30 mpg avg. UK mpg. (No speed limit in the isle of man & German Autobahns. )

  • BMW besides losing its soul and its mind with the enormous radiator grills they are putting on their new models, even the hybrid ones. Radiators are meant to dissipate heat generated by the wasted energy of an internal combustion engine where only 30% is converted to mechanical force that reaches the rear wheels. The bigger the radiator just shows the bigger the wastrel you tell people you are by driving the thing and then that its ugly, well ....... There is a reason I haven't bought a BMW since the 1980's and the Black M5 was the ultimate driving machine I wish I had gotten
