New 930 Owner

Hey Guys. After a couple years of looking, and after slownrusty's patience with answering my questions, I've finally become the proud owner of this '83 930 euro.

It has an aftermarket slant nose kit. Just over 44,000 original miles. Original Fuchs wheels. From what i can tell the suspension is stock. Interior is all stock, though it does have sport seats. Everything works except the stereo, which is no big deal.

Unfortunately, the previous owner messed around with aftermarket alarms, so i need to remove that and clean up some of the messy wiring under the hood and around the battery. It does have a small oil leak.

The only pics i have are from the original seller, i have yet to take pics of my own. I'm waiting to do an oil change, put new gas in it, new tires, new valve cover gaskets on, and detail it before i take more pics.

Anyhow, enjoy! So glad to finally be a part of this forum.

The cigarette smoke is going the wrong way

It looks very nice, very nice. The grass needs water.

... Must be dead by now

Just notice the Fuchs Wheels... Always wonder how Das Babe would look like with them, now I know.

Luckily that's the seller's grass and not mine :-)

Thanks for the compliments. Hopefully i'll get this thing registered and road worthy this weekend.

Nice car...that slantnose sure makes it a rare 930.

Great to see I'm not the only one sans A/C. I wonder if anyone has actually put a supercharger there to run from 1000-3500RPM until the Turbo kicks in? Just a crazy thought.

Hope you can get better gas than where I am (tops is 91 in CA)

Great looking car. Welcome to the group! Now just don't start being obsessive about what you can do to make it just a little bit better. None of us around here do that....

Best wishes,

Thank goodness! I don't need another forum that's going to cause me obsess over getting every last bit out of my car and bank account

$6 is cheap! I think it is @ $9 here.
