The story of one man's love for his car - David Duran and his 1987 BMW 325i



This is a story of one man's love for his car. David Duran has been driving his '87 BMW 325i for the last 20 years, it's his daily driver and his pride and joy. The E30 is considered by many as one of the finest BMW's ever made and has a huge following in the car scene worldwide. Dave's E30 is a classic example of keeping the dream alive, it looks as good today (if not better) than the day he got it and his dedication to the vehicle is quite humbling.

This is the first of many videos to come where I will be exploring cool cars and people's relationship to them.

Many thanks to David Duran for giving me your time and sharing your story. Thanks to my friend Dennis Burnett for helping with second camera and some much needed encouragement, and to my fiance Jessica Little for help with graphics.

Love the E30...such an amazing car and still performs well even today. Sure it is not the mega HP car like the new things out of Germany, but it is perfect in its own simplicity and precision. I'd rock an E30 as a DD if I didn't have a 3yo son and worry about vehicle safety out there. Oh wait, I do still have an E30 sitting in the back of the garage as a fun pleasure car.

He needs to look into his brake pads and also the rear brake lights. Both those idiot lights were on. Otherwise Kudos job well done awesome car to this fellow!

Just wondering, could you ask David for details concerning his e30? Specifically, I'm trying to find out how to match his body kit and wheels. Any help is appreciated and great story!

Seen this before. Always puts a smile on my face.

The 1972 BMW 2002 is a great video as well.
