    Me and my car - Pete Griffiths - 1988 BMW 325i Touring E30

    Posted in Cars on Wednesday, 19 February 2020

    Estate of the union - this 1988 BMW 325i Touring E30 is far more than a car to Pete Griffiths. As Dan Bevis explains, it’s a companion that’s been with him through thick and thin; a union of souls in sparkling Malachite Green.

    Chris picked up his E30 almost four years ago but it looked nothing like it does now; it didn’t run, the interior and paint were in an awful state, and it had numerous leaks, but none of that put Chris off and he got stuck into his new project. “I got the car running which turned out to be the main relay, and she hit the road since that day! I slowly restored this vehicle in my parents’ garage at home, with a little help here and there from my dad. I did everything on this car myself beside the paint job. I did all the maintenance needed to make it reliable on the road and fixed the leaks,” explains Chris, but it’s not just been about maintenance for the car he has named Chapulina and there are plenty of mods on board. The E30’s been dropped on a set of BC coilovers over #BBS-Style-5 splits, and there’s the aforementioned respray along with Euro grilles and OEM ellipsoid headlights, while under the bonnet you’ll find a Conforti chip and a set of long tube exhaust manifolds with an X-pipe and catless exhaust for more power and lots more noise. Inside, meanwhile, you’ll find Recaros and an upgraded stereo system and the end result is one seriously sexy E30.
