Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.


If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every wheel


If listing parts, post:
-What brand and what models it can be used on

-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For miscellaneous items, post:

-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For WTB threads
-Be as detailed as possible.
-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

                    If you can get your hands on a proper exhaust system thats the biggest part. Theres a S50 midpipe thats for sale in Santa Barbara right now for $100. Other than that as long as the charcoal canister is present and there isnt any funny business it should be fairly easy. Theres leg work to do and too many people are too lazy to deal with it.

                    Yes, you can "find a guy" to smog it for a little more, but the value in a BAR legal 24v is worth the extra effort IMO

                    It looks to be a pretty clean car, so I think someone whos willing to do that extra effort would be well off. Especially if you negotiate that special smog to be part of the purchase price, you just bought yourself 2 years to get it done right. The only downside to me is that its a non-vanos M50, but some like that

                        Absolutely correct! I agree. If you have the time and resources, definitely get this BAR ready. The value will go up.

                        It actually is VANOS! You can hear the VANOS goin in the video when the camera is in the engine bay (I think?).

                        In regards to what needs to be done for BAR, it needs stock exhaust headers installed (currently has aftermarket headers), it DOES need a charcoal canister installed, it needs some vacuum hoses rerouted, the check engine light needs to be fixed, there is a check engine code stored of 73 for the speed sensor, and...that's it! I went to BAR and that's the list of stuff I got from them. No funny business.
                        M50 exhaust manifolds + the S50 midpipe wouldnt be much, even if you paid a shop to install it. Call it $500 max. Less if you sell the headers to offset the cost, could be done extremely cheap if you are resourceful.

                        Charcoal canister installed is a junk yard fix. Call it $10

                        Mine had the CEL for the VSS and you just need to run one wire to the cluster from the X20. $0 cost

                        but this is NOT a Vanos motor. It CAN be retrofitted later in life, but Id like to see someone build up a non vanos motor.



                        This is still a great car for a great deal, its giving me bad thoughts, though I have zero use for it. Look through the pics and you can see a lot of goodies that justify the cost. GLWS
