Ongoing diary including video reports and Instagram posts
Follow #BCGBMWE30 on social media Bookmark this page to follow my ongoing series with this car – everything that happens with the ownership of this BMW – one that I’ve owned for the second time. I used to own a blue one just like this back in the 1990s, and it was one of my most missed cars.
Testing out the GTechniq Ceramic GWash car shampoo on the BCG BMW E30 325i SE today – it’s supposed to have superior dirt removal, but also provide a protective coating. I give the dirty bimmer a wash, see how it is to use, and will check in about a week to see if it’s down any better at repelling dirt. And then try the second shampoo that GTechniq has sent to me on a regular basis. Stay tuned to find out how I get on.
I bought these for the car

26 May 2022 – Cambelt Change and Service
Took the BCG BMW E30 back to the Project Shop in Bicester to finally get the cambelt changed and get it a full Inspection 2 Service. In this video, see how all that gets done (including how to get at the cambelt and how to line it up correctly), plus see if they found any other potential issues with car, and what else they were working on at the time! Thanks so much to Simeon Cattle and his team for doing the work and allowing us to film at his brilliant workshop. Find them at https://projectshop.co.uk

Standby full video on this soon!
People have asked if those wicked little wipers on the headlights actually work? In this video I find out – watch now to see if they move!
28 April 2022 – How to get Bluetooth music, hands free calling and even Siri on a 1980s Car Radio – the easy and affordable solution to my broken car stereo cassette player in my BCG BMW E30 325i SE from 1989.
13 April 2022 – 1989 BMW 325i SE E30 Expert Inspection at last! What horrors did we uncover? Bought online from Classic Car Auctions after only a cursory glance around in person, it looks okay to untrained eyes. But it’s time to uncover the truth and find out if this is a dog or a gem? I take it to the Classic Project Shop (ProjectShop.co.uk) in Bicester where Simeon Cattle and his team give it a proper once-over finally reveal the expert verdict on this modern classic bought on a whim at auction!
10 April 2022 – Bought at Classic Car Auctions a few weeks back, several of you have asked how much was it? In this video I reveal this 1989 E30 BMW 325i SE model’s price under the hammer and in total. I also look through the thick file of documents and try to ascertain its history, where it’s been, what happened to it, what’s been done. It’s lived in Germany for the last few years.
8 April 2022 – My new classic BMW E30 325i SE Coupe has its original radio cassette player installed. I finally figured out how to input the code on a 1980s BMW car stereo to unlock it and play the radio. But will it still play cassettes? I managed to dig out an old box full of audio tapes and try out my favourite. Find out what happens next in this video and then tell me what you think I should do?
2 April 2022 – Classic 1989 BMW E30 325i SE bought at Online Auction ( @Classic Car Auctions ) at the NEC Classic Restoration Show in Birmingham. On 21st April 2021, on the Monday after the show, I collected this BMW E30 325i – here’s the video from that day.
