I started looking last week for a new car after I totaled Edna (RIP) and was mainly looking for a WRX or an IS300. I came home 2 nights ago with an e30. Best decision I have ever made. I didn't realize how cheap these could be had or how cheap my insurance could be. So, now that I spent considerably less than I set out to spend, upgrades will come sooner.

Info:

91 325i
200k
I'm the 3rd owner. It was originally a Cali car. I bought it from a couple that bought it from their grandma who bought it new. It's only been in KS since 2006 when they bought it.
Completely stock.
Power everything and EVERYTHING works. The sunroof even doesn't leak.
Leather is in awesome condition other than the drivers seat where it's cracking a little bit. Even still has stock floormats and they're in awesome shape.
Very little rust. When I say very little, I mean very little.

I've only really got 1 picture right now. It's been shitty so I haven't been able to take any. I will post more this weekend when I'm off work.

First thing is going to be a stereo. They removed the stock one with intentions of replacing it with a better one, instead they bought a new car and left this one to chill in the driveway.
Drop is next. Duh.
It needs fog lights. These are MIA. Amber maybe?

After that... It's all in the air. Not sure which way I want to go with it beyond that.

So... I can has KCSRe30club?

I was waiting on a response on it too. These things sell fast it seems, the past 3 I tried to even look at had sold before I could even get a hold of the seller.
