2001 530i 5-speed. anthrazit metallic, sport, premium, cold-weather packages. Just drove it home from the bay area yesterday - avg 28.6mpg, avg 69.7mph (incl slowdowns/stops). Incredibly smooth, quiet, and comfortable, yet still handles very well. paint is a 9/10 (a couple stone chips/door dings here and there), interior is 10/10. 103k miles, complete service records.

here's a photo i took along the way. i would've taken more, but it was so comfortable that i didn't get tired or stiff, and didn't need to stop!



and to answer the inevitable question: yes, i am keeping my e30, and i will be driving it more than cab drives his! tongue sticking out smiley

Duh... even people who don't have E30s drive theirs more than I do. OTOH, in 3 weeks I'll be done with grad school, then I'll have a son in about 3 weeks after that, so I got that going for me. spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

Double congratulations!

I have found that sons are really handy when it's time to bleed the brakes. grinning smiley

Am I sure I am keeping it? I'm pretty sure. I'd only sell it if I was having financial hardships or something. ALTHOUGH it is tempting to sell the E30 and supercharge the M54 to get 375ish hp. sleeper, anyone?

Am I sure I will drive it more than Cab drives his? Using his own words - even people who don't have e30s drive theirs more than he does!
