The E 30 is an easy car to modify, with many thousands built in different configurations over the years, and easy parts interchangeability with other BMW models. Throw in a racing pedigree, retro-cool appeal, and a healthy dose of aftermarket parts support and you have nearly the perfect enthusiast car.

Whether for on-track duty or simply improved street performance, the E30 series cars have proven to respond to well chosen upgrades. Each specific section of the car (chassis, engine, transmission, etc.) is showcased and suitable performance upgrades are discussed in detail. Exterior appearance items are also covered, as are maximum wheel and tire sizes for the entire family of 3-series E30 BMWs. This book offers current and future owners a wealth of important information, including a buyer’s guide, year-by-year upgrades and changes, and more.

• A complete end-to-end guide to evaluating an E30 for potential purchase is included in great detail, with solid recommendations from experienced experts.

• The most- and least-desirable powertrain combinations are shared, and the performance potential of each is revealed in detail. Engine swaps are also reviewed, with honest assessments of their overall benefit and worth.

This book includes 332 black and white photos. Buy this book and you will have a valuable addition to any BMW owner’s library.
