    Everyone who had/have one are lucky to be able to check that box. Not sure I would buy with todays prices though, however good they are.

    As it was said there cant be too many E30 photos, here are 2 of mine:

    @ German E30M3 meet in 2010







    It was UK registered when I got it. GI73FBL and dark blue - maybe someone from here ? Sold it to Asturia, Spain.
    Did not realise this was John/Grants old car :-)

    A rare Alpina B6 3.5S - E30 M3 purists believe that only the S14 4 cylinder engine should grace the engine bay, but these were rather a nice piece of kit









    Knew a UK couple with one of these

    I'm certain Kevin wasn't there that weekend.
    Looked back through pics and Dave is there so I assume the Whit car was his and this was the year before the colour blobs

    Different car Martin, Dave's colour blob car is a caged up track car, the white car in the report was a road car, I understand the white road car was sold to a guy in Hong Kong, but Dave still has his track car.
