I stand corrected.

Congrats on the sale.

Considering what I have seen other M50 swaps trade for, it's a fair price for the car in the condition it was in. And as I said before, raising tide lifts all boats. So any E30 that goes for a decent amount just helps the value of my fleet.


..of course, I would have to actually SELL one in order to realize those gains!

At 1 pm that afternoon with an hour to go with the reserve not met, I accepted the fact the car wasn't going to sell. I had a couple of emails with questions, but nothing of substance. Then with 20? minutes to go it blew up. The buyer and that other guy were going at it.

I'm happy with what the car sold for. It's actually what I wanted to sell it for (mind you I'm still losing money). The car is going to a guy who seems excited to own it and take care of it. He's picking it up later today.

Ask me later this afternoon how I feel. It'll be 5 years worth of effort and memories driving off. Not sure how I'm going to react.

BaT didn't seem to have the highest faith it was going to sell for very much. I guess now maybe they'll have a different mindset.

I sold a car on BAT (240Z) a couple years ago.
They push hard for a low reserve which I can understand.
I would guess the final price on your car should encourage realistic reserves and maybe see more swapped E30s listed.

They basically had told me to list mine for about the same as what yours sold for, but I wanted to wait until it was CA legal because I knew it would go for over 10k but luckily I came to my senses before all that

Dang, already crossed $25k..

Sounds like the tranny swap used a regular g260, which will affect performance over the close ratio that Alpina normally put behind their 2.7

...it's all about timing on BAT. You need to have two buyers that really want it. Otherwise, it'll get lost in the shuffle. Ideally, BAT should limit how many similar models are listed, but they seem not to give a rats ass about that.

Reading the receipt from the C2, Charging for shop materials did they keep track of how many gloves they used and how many paper towels. No mention of changing head gasket since they changed the head bolts. Also found it interesting that the car has power windows all the way around, since most Alpina's were based on the cheapest 316 then adding the engine, so they had a variety of options when it came to windows.

Actually, most were based on 323i's..

Though by '86, they were probably pulling in 325i's. If I recall it wasn't until 87 or 88 that they finally worked a deal with BMW to receive Bodies in White.

I'm impressed with the sellers showing of all the usual rust spots for E30's, and it looks pretty dang good. Honestly, it's worth the money it's at right now, or even a little more..
