wheeler dealers: BMW E30 325i Touring

After Top Gear, one of my favourite automotive shows is Wheeler Dealers. Broadcasted out of the UK (as expected), it starts Mike Brewer and his trusty mechanic Ed.  They buy cars cheap, do some work on em, fix em up, and try to sell em for a proflit.  They pick up some pretty great stuff.  Makes me jealous of the UK used market!

In this episode, they get the rare-in-the-USA BMW E30 Touring for 900 quid!

(PARTS 1 through 5).

The steady decline of BMW 3-series design…

Well, it’s a slippery slope downhill for BMW.  Every generation of 3-series gets a *little* bit worse….Their identity is being lost completely, in my opinion.  The E21 and E30 had alot of charisma—with the big twin kidney grille in the front.  These days, it’s difficult to even SEE the twin kidneys on the grille.  It looks more Pontiac than BMW.

BOOOO, BMW! You’re losing your class…

Check em out…in order, and see the steady decline in style:
