Look who's back from the dead!

I'm so happy to see that BEN is back!

This is Emre. Formerly "Emre (OO=[][]=OO) 318is" from the old days. I'm pretty sure I was one of the earliest members of BEN, along with Ove Kvam, Ben Carufel, and that crowd.

In the years since BEN, I've stayed active on various regional forums (e.g., MontrealRacing.com) and some E30-oriented boards (e.g., r3vlimited). But I've always missed the old crew from BEN. Glad to see some of you back!

After some 20 years of ownership, I sold my 318is this year. I was sad to see it go, but I needed to make room for newer projects. That's why I dropped the "318is" from my username.

Anyway, I'm glad to be back.

Looking forward to catching up with old friends and making some new ones.

Welcome back! Some of us are still around, some have sold their E30's but we can't keep them out. As long as they're nice, they can stay.

Well, I have only had my E-30 for 8 years so I must have a few more to go. I am not tired of driving it yet.

Hi Emre,

Good to see you back smileys with beer
Not much has changed here other than we got smaller. I guess as folks moved on from their E30s they didn't find much of interest here.
Some of us, like yourself, no longer have their E30s but we still hang around here becuase you can take the driver out of the E30 but you can't take the E30 out of the driver :lol:

We occasionally still manage to track down problems and help others get their E30s back up and running. It keeps out brains from rusting I guess :burnout:

Hey, Jose! Nice to see you again.

Hi Emre e-30-front-without 318is, glad you still remember the name! :cool:

I am temporarily without e-30 as well, the 323i had to go to a better house cause it was too thirsty for my thin wallet.
Better days will come, I am sure.

Hey I remember that clever name of yours!

Many years since I've been on here too. I used to have the black 318iS with the Tech II kit in Oz. That one is long gone! But I now have a Bronzit 325i Sedan (with a Tech II lower kit).
I used to be register member 42!
I'll update my sig later... See how many names I recognise from the turn of the century when I was last on here.
My new car is in the pic, only had this one for the last 13 years!

Does Peter still have his iX?

He had to sell it a couple of years ago. Haven't heard from him in a while...

Ohhhhhh noooooo I hope it wasn't because of financial reasons. That is so sad sad smiley
