It is amazing to think that time has passed by and that the second BMW '3 Series' has achieved such status that it warrants this special book on its 21st anniversary. Maybe it is due to the sheer 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. It is a pending classic and prices for well kept models have started to escalate; furthermore, there is a core of well cared for cars out there requiring basic attention by their dedicated owners. As a result, there has never been a better time for a book of this sort. By focusing on the common faults which crop up repeatedly and by giving detailed, simple instructions regarding repairs, this book will be 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.
When Andrew invited me to provide an input to the preparation of this book, I immediately agreed as I am all too aware of the many people who are looking for simple advice to fault find and repair their cars through my involvement in forums, my own website and BMW clubs. I feel this book is an excellent reference for those people who are deeply passionate about these cars, now three generations old. Being a fellow E30 owner, I am well aware of the devotion they continue to instill in the face of modern machinery. All of the models have the essence of character, put the driver first, have great depth to their performance, are well styled, classy, are robust, surprisingly cheap to run and quite easy to work on. They have all the qualities I like in a car; so much so, I do not envisage a day that I will be without my own car. I'll end with this note: when you are out driving next, look around for cars from the '80s. The E30 is one of the very few models of that decade which can be seen every day on our roads - and there is no better statement than that. Brendan Purcell
