Synopsis

Buying a classic and iconic E30 BMW 3 Series can be just the start of a wonderful adventure. This book explains how these fantastic cars can be modified to suit a vast range of applications, from simple upgrades to make everyday driving easier, through to servicing and renovation tips, and large-scale conversions for racing and rallying. Some of the most popular forms of motorsport are examined, along with explanations of how to take part and what equipment you need.
All the procedures are explained in straightforward text by a qualified engineer and racer with many years of practical experience, accompanied by detailed photographs showing the reader how it’s done. Many of the modifications shown are done on the author’s own vehicles, so you get an honest report – bruised knuckles and all. As well as the ‘how to’ sections, there are a large amount of data and comparison charts to help you choose which modifications are right for you.
