Tonight on GRM LIVE!: BMW 318is

Meet GRM’s project BMW 318is. 

Our mission was simple: Could we build enough performance into the bottom rung of the E30 performance ladder to match the ultimate BMW E30, the legendary M3? We found a basket case 1991 318is languishing in a field with a junk motor and went to work. Tonight on Grassroots Motorsports LIVE! Presented by CRC Industries, we’ll take an up-close look at the project car itself, and discuss shopping for and modifying your E30 BMW.

Watch Grassroots Motorsports LIVE! Presented by CRC Industries on the Grassroots Motorsports Facebook Page and YouTube Channel at 9p.m. Eastern, and don't forget to post your questions and comments.

Haha, having just purchased an e30 last week, I'll be tuning in for this.

That's too clean for rallycross, so you've failed :(

Love the e30 s after having four convertibles and two coupes... Have moved on and presently have two e36s, 97 m3 coupe and 94 325i sedan and a sweet 99 e39 528i sport...
