I've never had anything major break on my e30... my e21s on the other hand had almost everything major break! The K-Jetronic injection was a nightmare in both the M10 and M20, the M20 wasn't rebuilt properly before I bought it and dropped a gudgeon pin leading to a rod through the side of the block, cooling system issues, distributor issues, auto transmission issues, impossible to fix front end shimmy etc. Still loved driving them though

I've never had full coverage insurance on any of my e30s.

Now that the days of $3000 e30s are over, I am reconsidering.

Great thread idea!

Never have I ever:
- Owned a convertible
- Owned an iX
- Never ran out of gas
- Never broke a timing belt

Shit, I think that's it. I have had plenty since 2004 and most of them were beat. Went through 11 iS lips =( and was able to convince an ex-gf to take a trip to pound town on several occasions in the front, back, and even out of the trunk once.

Never cared about the opinions others thought of what I did to it. I made it my own.

How about you guys?
I rolled my first one three months after getting it.

Drove it for two more years. Completely, utterly reliable.
