My Classic 1989 E30 BMW 325i SE – Part 2 (2023)

Ongoing BLOG, video reports & 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.

More pics just sent to me from Shelsley Walsh

How does this happen to a badge, despite regular cleaning?

MAY 2023 – See my full album and video from attending the Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb Driving School in the BMW:

Park a 1980s BMW E30 325i among some sensational supercars and you’d expect it to be mostly ignored. Not at all as it turned out. Thanks to all those that stopped by to take a look and ask about the car at the Drivers Union display at Brands Hatch. I was invited by Drivers Union to commentate on the spectacular supercar live demo arena!

New Pics!

Thanks to eBay seller ‘TaranMalhi2008’ I found a genuine replacement for my missing front left hubcap from the BBS alloy on my 1989 BMW 325i SE E30 that I previously lost

It’s been exactly a year since I’ve had my second BMW E30, a 1989 325i SE in black. What’s the experience been like, and what’s it cost? Watch this video now.

Help! I’ve lost a hubcap off one the beautiful BBS alloys wheels – unfortunately the replacement I ordered from Amazon, were not correct!

Great to catch up with my old buddy Tom Conway-Gordon, who runs Instagram page @AnyColourAsLongAsIts_Black at Chaiiwala in Kingsbury with the #BCGBMWE30 – full podcast coming next soon! He wanted to snap the car for his Instagram page – and it’s live there now!

Valentine’s Day gift from my wonderful wife is almost an exact 1:18 KK Scale Model replica of my BMW E30 325i SE. Mine is a 1989 UK-spec SE, the model is an 87 M Sport version, but both have the optional BBS wheels and M-Sport steering wheel. Mine also has black leather upholstery and a sunroof. Hope you enjoy this little vid showcasing it.

Just got the MOT done on the BCG BMW E30 – always nerve-wracking, especially for classics. So did it pass? Watch the video!
