Very nice, I miss my E30.

I have a set of Whiteline sways to suit if you haven't already got that covered.

It is indeed the M42 twin cam model.

The wheels are 18 inch Simmons FRs. They look good but ideally I would like some HRE 501s or some BBS style 5s.

So many idea Eliott.

Turbo the M42, stick an S54 in it.

They have even stuck the V12 from the old 8 series in them!

I'll be speaking to the boys at GT Auto Garage about it and see what suggestions they have.

Blasphemy I know but have also been thinking of a 13BT.

It will be stock for some time until I decide what to do.

But the interior and body are perfect so I can take my time to decide what heart it needs

Well done mate, very tidy straight example from the looks of it. Treat her well and do the right thing by sticking in something with several hundred KWs of power (which will come in due course!)

Drop the rotor in it . You know you want to; 20B PP for quickest non-Mazda rotary on the street that'll be easy to get an engineer cert!

No 20B and definitely not a ported one!

My 13B PP in my Rx-7 was loud enough but a 20B PP is another world of noise!

Congrats, very tidy looking car!
Also makes me miss my E30.

The red paint is not faded at all from the Brissy sun?

Good stuff! Looks like he's got a dash mat on there too like the PO of my E30 did, so he's looked after it - so rare to have an E30 in Australia with no cracks in the dash!

Dash is perfect under the mat too.

The first thing I did when I saw the car was to take the mat off to see what was underneath!

Then took the carpet out of the boot to see if there were any nasties hidden in there. Again, nothing hiding away under the carpet.

I wasn't really even looking for an E30 but after I saw this one I just couldn't walk past it.
