A Woman Discusses Her Love For the E30 3 Series: Video
She believes it’s a spiritual successor to the BMW 2002by Robert Moore, on
Petrolicious has done a number of biography pieces about people and their cars, and the most recent biography tells the story of Delia Wolfe and her 1991 BMW 318S – a car she believes to be the spiritual successor to the BMW 2002. It’s hard to talk about the video without ruining it, so I won’t do that here. Instead, I’ll talk about the E30 for a minute.
It was originally penned by Claus Luthe in 1978 and was produced in a number of body styles between 1982 and 1993. It was a reliable model set that became cheap to obtain and modify and is the definition of reliability brought forth by German engineering. For what it’s worth, that is also proven in this video, as Wolfe reveals that her restored 318S has more than 300,000 miles. I could talk all day about the BMW E30, so instead of putting you through all of that, click play and enjoy the video.
