    You know you drive an e30 when:

    You are a venture capitalist in 2008 America and buying an e30 puts you over budget.

    ...your check brake light is on.
    ... the blob has taken over your obc.
    ... you go around speed bumps.
    ... you memorize what each fuse is for
    ... you pass another e30 and wonder if you need any parts

    this surely a start.

    ..When people are amazed at the 22 year old technology in your car that is still considered an extra option in new cars.

    the BMW service light has been on since you bought it, and will still be on for many years to come.

    See sig.
    When you stole the thread name from e30tech.com!

    When you know you drive an e30:

    You're amazed at working instument clusters from e30's

    Your passenger seat randomly reclines (hilarious when you have a passenger)

    When you walk away from it, you turn around and grin!!!

    200,000 miles is considered low

    You have an obsession with spotting out e30's in movies and on the road

    You wet yourself when you see an e30 m3 in person (if you drive a 325 or below)

    You open you drivers door from the trunk (not me now!)

    your gas gauge needle thing waves at you!

    Tick! Tick! Tick! Tick! is a sound you come to recognize!

    You wonder what the hell that noise is!

    It's a jack-stand queen!

    You think it's better than an e36 and an e46

    You have a hole in your exhaust that makes it sound orgasmic!

    your dash is cracked (particularly in the middle: fork-style)

    it's a never ending project!!!

    When you drive another car and it just doesn't feel right!

    When you have a love-hate relationship with your car!

    When you're in college!!!

    I can go on and on!!!

    When you've had to buy a new lip...not because you wanted a different lip, but because you wanted a lip.

    when your friends say your car sounds like an angry sewing machine.

    your passenger window only works sometimes. when it doesnt, you tell your passenger to punch the door panel, then try it.

    You know you drive an E30 when:

    Your brother starts it on fire and then you go about your business for the rest of the day driving it around like a champ.

    when you lube up the hood hinges and then your hood wont stay up anymore! :grr

    When you say screw the kick panel because it catches on your big shoes when you try to release the clutch.

    When you become a total master at removing the entire interior, namely the center console and HVAC panel to replace stupid light bulbs.

    When you know the size of practically every bolt around the car.
