There really is something about a BMW E30 that I absolutely love... I think the sound is amazing... These old 6 cylinder engines give off this roar with a smattering of scream around higher revs. His car has a bit of head work with a full TNT stainless steel exhaust system. The car rides on a set of H&R lowering springs, and bolted onto the hubs are a set of genuine German made BBS RS264’s. These wheels are the ultimate cult wheels without a doubt. Any wheel enthusiast will know what a proper set of original RS’s are about... They are the real deal. Upfront, the car has an Alpina lip, and a rather aggressive diffuser that bolts to the bottom of the Alpina lip, totally changing the appearance of the front end. This Touring’s interior is spotless. The steering wheel has a leather cover over it, to preserve the original wheel, the sporty cotton-clad Recaro racing seats are just so perfect, and how cool is that manual wind-up sunroof?

 

 

This car is simple. It isn't lowered to the point where it is not drivable. It sits perfect over those shiny BBS hoops, and Fayaz isn’t shy to let this wagon rip... And she rips alright!

That wind-up sunroof lever is just so cool.

  Alpina lip and lip diffuser are both subtle, and aggressive.

Minty interior. The leather steering is protected with that leather cover.

 BBS hardware. Cotton-clad early Recaro sports seats. All original windows

 The typical twin exit, slanted exhaust set up fits perfect on this car.

 On full swing, while taking off, she sounds glorious with all 6 cylinders working hard.

 Nothing shines like genuine BBS hardware. Look at those lips...
