I’ve always loved tuner cars but can’t really imagine buying a car someone else has extensively modified. The E30 is a classic platform for great mods though and it’d be nice to think claims of reliability could prove true. Today’s is an interesting creation with a 1991 535i’s block breathed on by a Garret GT35R creating a punishing 409hp monster. Perhaps not the nimblest of E30s, it’s not a track car; the sellers’ multiple commutes to work in it must be a hoot.

hello i am selling my car because i am looking to buy a house. my family was the secound owner of this car. my dad first owned the car then passed it down to me. This bmw e30 beast can be driven like a stock bmw. with comfort but yet has all the power you would ever want once over 3000 rpm. this car was never tracked. I drive the car to work and back 2 to 3 times a week. 72 mile commute. it is very reliable at the power it is at. It looks like a normal bmw e30 until somebody hears this car. I have always treated the car with respect because i built it. All engine parts have been replaced at 99k miles. 7.9:1 ratio. is just right for this car. The engine in this car is from a 1991 535i with a older 535i block to make it lower compression for a turbo. The turbo is a gt35r all exhaust was done by a certified welder. 3 inch exhaust all the way back to a vibrant muffler. car drives very straight. This car is not like every other track e30 were you cant bear to drive it on the street.
