If you know anything about E30 BMWs, you know how rare this car is in the US. I owned this car for about 2 years while living in the United Kingdom and have recently imported it back. The car has a March 1988 manufacture date and was legally imported under the 25+ year old provision just last month, September 2013. The car is fully registered in Oklahoma with a clear title in my name. I have not swapped the plates out yet, but I have included a picture of the OK plate. I am unsure how I would want to mount the plate so I will leave that up to the new owner.
Overall, the car is very solid, but not perfect. It is 25 years old after all. The paint has a couple of issues. There is a scratch down the right (driver's) side of the car. The sunroof has some scratches. The hood has a scratch and an area where the clear is peeling. One of the rear quarters also has a small area of clear peeling as well as a ding in a couple of scrapes. There is rust in the lower portion of the drivers front fender. The wheel arches and corners of the windshield are all rust free as can be seen in the pictures. I have tried to picture all the blemishes, no matter how minor. Please take a good look at them. If you need a picture of anything else, please let me know.
Mechanically the car is spot on. I have not had any issues in the time I've owned it other than the starter needing replacing. I would not hesitate to drive it on a cross country road trip. It has been lowered slightly, I'd say 15-20mm. Looks good and doesn't ride rough. The headlight wash/wipe doesn't work. There is a common problem with the motors needing taken apart, cleaned and re-greased. Everything is there though.
The interior is clean and damage free. The seats work as they should. The metal rod that holds the load bay cover has separated from the cover, so it cannot be closed. It just needs putting back in and the cover glued back together. This is how it was done at the factory, just needs redoing.
Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions. If you would like for me to call you, please send me your number and a good time for me to call. If you are local and would like to take a look at it in person, we could do that as well.

When BMW switched its entry level 3 Series, the 328i, from a naturally aspirated, 3.0-liter six-cylinder to a turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder, we weren't entirely sure what to think. Sure, from a pure numbers perspective, the new 2.0-liter cooked the old 3.0's goose, delivering more torque at far more accessible engine speeds while boosting horsepower and fuel economy.

While we miss that revvy six-pot, the numbers for the 2.0 were just way too good to pass up. Then we received news of an even less-powerful 2.0-liter 3 Series - the 320i. This was interesting, as it saw BMW delving into a power level previously owned solely by the anemic Lexus IS 250 and its six-cylinder engine.
Could BMW make a sub-200-horsepower sedan that still drove the way we expected a 3 Series to drive? To find out, we borrowed the new 320i for a week of testing.
90 years is a heck of a long time by any standard, and as good a cause for celebration as we've ever seen. That's how long BMW has been making motorcycles for, and it's celebrating with the retro cafe racer you see here - as promised and previewed.

Dubbed the R nineT (for 90 years), the latest product from BMW Motorrad traces its roots back to the original 1923 BMW R 32. And like the original, it's powered by a boxer twin - in this case, a 1,170cc air- and oil-cooled unit delivering 110 horsepower and 88 pound-feet of torque. All that muscle is packed into a classically-styled roadster that looks ready to line up next to a Moto Guzzi Griso, Triumph Thruxton or Ducati SportClassic.
The neo-retro styling drapes a unique tubular steel spaceframe chassis that uses the engine as a stressed member. The inverted telescopic front fork is borrowed from the S 1000 RR superbike and a paralever swingarm with spring strut suspends the rear. That's where you'll find a removable rear pillion for an extra passenger and dual tailpipes mounted on the left side, swappable for a titanium Akrapovic exhaust - just one of many customization options BMW Motorrad is offering for the R nineT.
October 31 is no longer known as Halloween, or All Saints' Eve or even as that day when all children simultaneously develop huge cavities. It's now known as the day before Christmas/holiday advertising begins. Seriously, as of November 1, it seems like companies across the country and from every industry have declared open season on holiday ad campaigns. It's all premature enough that we're already feeling our inner Grinch showing, but at least some of the ads are better done than others.
Among them are new spots from BMW, which has arrived with this mini-campaign of three 30-second, Christmas-themed spots. There's a cameo from Santa Claus, who's at the helm of a sleek M6 Gran Coupe in one spot, while a 3 Series Gran Coupe slices through a slalom of Christmas trees in another. The final spot, called "Road Home", doesn't focus so much on the brand's "Ultimate Driving Machines," as it does the trip home for the holidays.
We've embedded all three videos below, so take a look and then let us know what you think of this seemingly perpetual holiday marketing calendar creep - and the BMW ads in particular - in Comments.
