Book Description

Jan. 21 2006 Brooklands Books
Produced from 1984-9, the BMW 3 Series' popularity and status is maybe due to the longevity of its design, its ability to satisfy the keen driver or its iconic status but, whatever it is, there is no doubt that the E30 is one car from the past that will stay with us into the future.

Focusing on the common faults which crop up repeatedly and giving detailed, simple instructions regarding repairs, this book is uniquely invaluable for owners who wish to try their hand at their own maintenance, especially those who may previously have been prevented from doing so by a lack of technical know-how or specific knowledge.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a look March 17 2006
By Jonathon D. Allen - Published on Amazon.com
This book has proven to be an excellent resource for facts and information on the E30 3 series. The detail is exquisite. It has proven indespensible during the build up of my first BMW. If you are interested in the vintage three, you need this book. Although written by a Brit, the U.S. cars are represented well.

4.0 out of 5 stars better than the haynes manual Feb. 26 2006
By S. G. Hall - Published on Amazon.com
A great book, I now feel that even if I can't do the repair myself I won't get ripped off by taking my E30 to a BMW garage. Lots of interesting background info too.

Breat book with many tips and tricks you will not find anywhere else. If you are restoring one of these, it will pay for itself times over again. Only caveat: it was written by a british author and therefore refers to the GB models and therefore is somewhat overloaded with info about models that were never sold here. It also misses some US model info, e.g. 4:10 rear axle ratio that was used here for 325ia cars.
