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

For WTB threads

-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.

    FS (SF, CA): euro 323i baur

    i bought this car on impulse and really should have gotten something newer- it's hard to rock an e30 when you don't have garage space to work on it in, and living in a loft space in san francisco, i don't.

    here is the BaT auction i bought from; pictures are much better than anything i could take and the car is unchanged and undamaged since purchase. i haven't even driven it much because i now live a half-hour walk from work and there's nowhere to park in the financial district anyway. that city life.

    https://bringatrailer.com/listing/19...-baur-tc-323i/

    good:
    driving impressions- it feels like my old coupes, but it's got a targa-style roof. none of the chassis wobble my old vert had before i put the frame reinforcements and hardtop on it.
    runs and drives great on CA 91oct.
    sport exhaust sounds good without drone or being obnoxious.
    tires are near new, plenty of tread. suspension and brakes also still in good shape.
    it's got the cool euro stuff on it (bumpers, grilles) and i have smoked smileys from ECS tuning that will come with.

    bad:
    there are electrical gremlins to work out that the previous seller didn't disclose; like the left-hand turn signal doesn't work and the speedo is a little flaky. probably just needs contacts in the fuse & relay boxes and cluster cleaned but i don't have a place to do that and i'm not paying a shop 100s to spend hours on troubleshooting for me.
    there is minor rub damage on both of the front fender arches (not obvious in pics), and the front valance was curbed. (i have a line on an mtech1 valance and if you give me a good price i might buy it for you.)
    driver's seat needs the usual one-side failure fixed (or get some corbeaus).

    this car's a unicorn; somebody pick it up for a reasonable price after considering the cost:benefit ratio. slide me a PM if you're interested, i need to free up the parking space i'm renting for it. move quickly if you want it- i'm going to donate it to charity to offset capital gains taxes from selling stock if it doesn't sell soon.

    I found a complete garage to myself in SOMA for $400/mos. Depending on where you live there could be a better deal so you have a safe place to park and work on her.

        I’ve been with E30s for a long time (see join date and signature). I still love them, but I’m ready to try a more modern BMW.

        So, this unique euro import is up for grabs.
