What is it about BMW E30’s that has us falling in love with them? We’re not only referring to the “stanced” ones, but all of E30’s. Our really good Norwegian friend by the name of Egil emailed us a couple photos of his friends car that he shot a while ago and even though a few of you may have seen a picture or two of it before, we thought it would be nice to give this thing the exposure it deserves. Norway is pretty well known for their epic BMW builds (specifically E30’s), whether they’re drift, track or even “aggressive fitment” oriented, Norway knows their stuff!

This LeMans Blue E30 is rocking a badass S50B32 motor under its hood with hand made carbon fiber air box and a few other small things. Other mods include a 6 speed transmission along with KW V2 coilovers and those beautiful BBS shoes. The car is just amazingly well built with a ton of money and hours in it. We’ll be taking a closer look at this E30 as well as many other Norwegian rides in the next few months as the warmer weather comes their way. hit the Read More button for more photos.

    Wake up… You are not “really good friends” with any of the owners of the cars you feature or photographers you steal photos from. You have never met this guy in person and chances are the only reason he comes to this site is because he can’t read English.

    Hi Neil.. That is not a nice thing to say, and why post words like this here.. I know Elvis, and he will Post up the original photos if you want that.. It is sad that people like you write so negative. Please be positive in the future and don´t hate.

    hey Stale W absolutely in love with your e30. I am working on an e30 project car as well, just curious on how much some things costed you. For example the custom bbs rims, the vis m tech 2 body kit and how much u got charged for the installation of the S50B32 engine due to the custom work needed to install the engine in the e30 engine bay. I was also curious if their were any electrical things i should be looking out for while installing a s50b32 since i have one sitting in my garage from my old e36 and plan on putting it in my e30. Id really appreciate, thanks – Steve K

    I know this is late, but how long did it take you to do all this? I bet you get this a lot, but do you ever think you sell?

  22. DwibZ
