Description:

1984 BMW 3-Series

Heartbroken E30 owner here. I am military and just received a 3-year oversees assignment and my family can only take one vehicle with us. After a tense game of paper/rock/scissors, my E30 lost to my wife's SUV. This car may never be a perfect show car, but it will always be an amazing daily-driver experience.
