Lightbulb Project car

Hey guys, looking into buying a project car.

A guy around here has an 86 325e for $750 and he says it runs really well but the speedo isnt working and the p/s isn't hooked up. It also needs a voltage reg as it over charges the battery.

Anyone have experiences with E30s that can give me some useful tips about what I should be looking for specifically to the e30?

Thanks guys

Ugh. Thought about one once but couldn't get past the 4750 redline. It's just so unBMW. That M20/27 or eta engine was all about efficiency. Go for a 325i if you really want an E30.
