The E30 BMW M3 is a wonderful performance car -- and today I'm reviewing the E30 M3, and I'm going to show you all around it. First I'll show you the quirks and features of the E30 M3, then I'll drive the original BMW M3 and show you what it's like on the road.

The front is the berst part of this exterior, the flares are the worse, they look stupid and forced and the standard 3 series e30 looks way better.

The most overvalued car along with the MK4 Supra and the Integra Type R DC2. I would NEVER pay that kind of money for any of these. The only reason why old cars look good to us is because new cars are UGLY. But that doesn’t mean I’m gonna pay $70,000 for a 89 M3 or a 95 Supra with 145,000 miles in it 😂 GTFO with that ****

Thanks for the great review and a drive down memory lane for me. A third hand 88 M3 was my first car! I had $14K to spend on a car and it was either a brand new Civic (as my older and wiser friends recommended) or "that white M3 with 105K miles on it". It was a no-brainer :-) * Two things you did not mention but I think are noteworthy for this car are the battery sitting in the right side of the trunk and the entire trunk lid being made of fiberglass, supposedly for perfect weight distribution.

6:31 same thing is on the outer left side in the 6er e24 bmw. i replaced it and got an electrical cable burn awesome. 8:00 yep best thiing ever has an in build immobilizer, if you forgett the code, no problem just take the car battary for 10 seconds off and the code resets itself to 0000 Great.....
madcommodore Pirms Mēneša
They're not value for money and because of the prices you could never actually use one as a daily driver with all the idiots crashing out there on the roads today so will never feel like the 1980s yuppie era ever again sadly. Hell I wouldn't even use my 325i as a daily driver now for the same reasons, a shame because an E30 is more than capable of handling the 150 or so miles a year I need to drive :)

8:25 The US Manual is not very precious or you missed the part where it shows for what those 4 Buttons are really for :) If you push "Code" you can lock the Ignition from the Car with a 4 Digit Code :) (but be carefull, you can easily look your self out) The Car will not start until the code is ok, if you try to start the car 3 times without the right code, the Car will execute a 30 sec Alert (Horn etc) Lock Manual (my first 325i got the same big BC2, and i always use it) 1) Shut down the engine. 2) Turn the Key to Position 1 in the Key lock. 3) Press Code 4) Now use the 4 Buttons to set the code. Just 4 Numbers ! You dont have to push a enter button or something like that. 5) If you want to abort, start the engine ! otherwhise Turn the Key to Position 0 6) Now the immobilizer is active. Take out the Key Unlock Manual 1) Insert your Key 2) Turn the Key to Position 1 or 2 3) Insert the Code 4) Start the Engine or press "Set-Res"

Awesome cars! PS. missed a cool feature on the onboard computer. (CODE), pass code enabled immobilizer. Once enabled need pass code to start car. We in SA never received the M3, BMW SA instead made their own version called the 333i, Basically e30 2 door with 3.3/3.5 M30 Engines .

The check blinks on the cluster until you hit the brakes and it can test those lights. The other reason it would blink is because you already have a red dot lit up on the overhead check panel. EDIT: ALSO The little numbered buttons on the bottom of the OBC are also used to enter a code every-time you shut the car off. It's a security feature that cuts fuel to the motor until you enter the last code punched in. great feature on an 80's car.

Another quirk, or more like a fail, is the rubber alternator bushings! What were they thinking!? My alternator was tilting so bad I thought the belt would fly off. I put in these red polyurethane bushings which helped but the alternator still sat at an angle. 😄

E30-update Pirms Mēneša
I’m only a little surprised he said this, after all, the E30 is The Godfather of modern automotive handling. The ride & handling of Every car made since is compared to the E30 either directly or indirectly. Not to mention the A+ materials & build quality. But it is a great day for the E30 to have a respected, big-shot automotive reviewer say this. At least it makes me Just a teeny little more proud to be an E30 owner!

I've watched several Greg DeMuro's reviews and they are all horrible. He's just basically walking around each car and states the obvious " it's got wide fender flares, it's got rear wing, it's got kidney grille..but they are smaller than those on 2020 cars..wow...how's that even possible..". and then spends half the time talking about different style of knobs and interior details...which is really completely irrelevant not only on this car, but on any car. Knobs and number of USB ports don't determine if the car is actually good or not..but somehow that seems to be a big deal lately. Then when he speaks about what makes this car so special, but he doesn't get into specifics...because he doesn't really know them. He just says the car drives differently from other BMWs...really????. I don't know how he has 3.7 M subscribers. ...but his choice of cars is great..I do agree with that.

Hello Doug, there is an easter egg in the turnlight signal stick, if you go bit beyond (past) the end of the travel and press it to one side (or the other), the BMW will turn on the position lights (front and rear) of that side, this is what BMW called "parking lights", this will prevent people from running into your car at night because they don't see it. Of course you need the battery specified in the manual because a smaller battery will die out in a few hours.

I'm not a hater. Our family has five E46 and a Z3. But some people are on something, like crack. This car is one of the worst styled cars ever. Especially Doug's favorite: the flared fenders. The whole thing looks like a one off kit car. I say my thugly RX-8 has better styling. This E30 M3 was one step of development started with the 2002tii. I love the E30, and E36, but for me the pinnacle of the 3 series was the E46: as much technology as you dare before they became unreliable, un-affordable, overweight, overly large, overly complicated and so on. IMO the 1M and M2 belong on this staircase than the modern M3/M4.

Doug we in South Africa got a very rare and special e30 known as the 333i, rumor around here has it it’s the engine from a 7 series (733i) in a 3 series from factory 😕. I’m actually reading your article on the e30 325ix, anyway apparently only 50 333i were made by BMW SA with the help of Alpina Germany ❤️, 2 were exported to Europe. I’ve only ever seen 1 in the metal though 😍, in red and it was SO gorgeous! 😕❤️ www.speedhunters.com/2019/10/333i-south-africas-answer-e30-m3/ 😅 Edit: found picture online in red encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn%3AANd9GcQtguauTlwe809Zp3s-ft9mBQsRsw44zRnOPg&usqp=CAU

My '82 320i was a blast to drive. It had a 5 speed manual, and turned heads for sure. I had to dump the thing when I was driving pretty fast down a back road, hit a pot hole, and the entire electrical system shut off. No engine, no power brakes, no power steering, nothing. I lived to tell about it, but it would have cost a fortune to get it rewired.

8:11 Wait, wait, wait... does that seriously say average fuel economy is 39.5l/100kms? That’s less than 6 mpg. My Fiesta ST has close to the same power to weight, and 0-60 time. But I’ve never seen more than 30L/100kms on a fresh reset AFTERa track day. Seriously, driving normal, I get 7.5l/100kms (about 31mpg). This E30 owner must be tracking it regularly, or he just floors it everywhere. Seriously, 20mpg for an E30 M3 is realistic. Less than 6mpg makes me wonder how the owner managed it.

5:34 I read about this. Apparently the Chinese market makes up 70-80 percent of BMW 7 series or X7 series buyers. They were polled and apparently bigger grills are a status symbol there. And tech and image generally tend to trickle down through an automakers lineup. Because the Chinese market take up the lion’s share of the the real meat of the market now, they sorta dictate the landscape. Their landscape says big grills, so here in North America, we now get to stare at 2 giant ass ugly disproportionate inlets into the engine. I hate it, but what can we do? China has WAY more money now than Canada and the US could make over the next 5 years combined. North America is actually starting to seem kinda poor by comparison to China’s financial might. And most North Americans have no idea. Seriously look it up.
