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
-An accurate description
-How long it/they have been used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For miscellaneous items, post:
-A detailed description of the item
-How long it/they were used for
-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.

    It was .net back in the day. I wanted a address to rehost Gustave's website. e30M3performance.com was being squatted on but e30sport.net was available and I couldn't pass up the nostalgia.

    Bimma360: It was a few reasons. One was the airbag vs. non-airbag column and all the differences with it there. I think the fire wall are different on the airbag cars to accommodate the different column but that may not be accurate and then also the one time use bolts to get the column out.

    I also wanted pop-out windows that were an '89 thing so its just easier to limit to non-airbag cars since they had everything I wanted. I already went extreme with mods on my '86 so I wanted a car to do more oe+ type build on so I was willing to pay a little extra to get an '89 just the way I wanted it and not have to swap stuff over, and keep it as originalish as possible.

    Congrats on the purchase, man that car is clean! I have a question for ya.

    Can you expand a little more on why the car had to be a non airbag from the factory? I am guessing it has more to it than the non airbag wheel, but wanted to pick your brain. Reason why I ask, is I have a a donor car that is in great shape and am planning on swapping the dash, all of the electrics, hvac, and non airbag stuff (column, etc). So with some of that stuff basically what could be considered a full conversion into a non-airbag car.

    Its in Boston but Boston is still covered in snow so it isn't going anywhere for a while. I have some parts on order to fix some things wrong with it and get it into perfect shape. I have been dealing with the car having been rekeyed in its life and am in the process of keying it back to VIN and getting a full set of BMW cut keys.

    Current quandaries: Car has the original blue carpet but the seats and door cards have been swapped to black. I have a new OE black carpet I can swap in with an Alpina interior or do I keep the blue kinda unique carpet. And the dash isnt cracked but has has 2 dents in it. Do I swap in a crack free perfect dash or go for leather covered dash and center console?

Thank you to fnvoirin for reaching out and being so patient while fielding all my questions about the car. Car runs like a champ on a little cruise from Dallas to Austin and then around the Austin area.

    Thank you to everyone that has posted. While I did look at every car that posted, JimmyP hit the nail on the head. I was looking for something very specific and original and was willing to wait. I actually expected to wait longer than I did.

    The original post is only 3 friggin months old... Do you know how long some people wait to find "the right car" if they are looking for something very special and specific.
    Years.

    And on the other hand, maybe it’s showing the OP how difficult it’s going to be to find the exact car he’s looking for...
