    Exterior:

    The exterior of this car cleans up quite nicely. It is a 19 year old car and does show some flaws. Ever since I purchased the car, it has always had a strange clearcoat issue on the rear quarter panels and the top of the rear bumper. In certain light you can’t even tell it has any issues, but in others you can see it quite well. The car has a few scratches and such around the car, but nothing that makes it out to be an eyesore. There are some rust bubbles on the sunroof. The car use to have a carbon fiber sunroof. The seals fit poorly and it leaked like crazy so the OEM panel that had been stored in the basement for years was put back in. It still shows lots of gloss and depth, but does have a few small rust bubbles on it. It also shows a few very very very small rust areas. One is in the door jamb, and another on one side of the rain gutters. Other than the issues I have stated the car looks great for its age. Turns lots of heads and gets a ton of attention from all crowds.



















    Interior:

    Interior is easily a 9.5 out of 10. The seats look absolutely gorgeous in the car. The Cardinal with black looks great. Very nice color combination with the silver exterior. The dash is flawless as are the center consoles. The door panels have been dyed to black and look great. The only complaint with this is that dust and such gets stuck to the cloth centers very easily and make it look dirty. I had thought about putting the regular E30 stitched panels in but I never got around to it. The headliner looks great.









    Engine/Mechanical:

    The car is a wonderful driver. Just about anything you can think of has been done to the car. Always maintained properly and always loved. The motor pulls very hard and tranny shifts great. The car use to be an automatic but the PO had done a manual swap. Everything works as if it had been a factory 5-speed car. The cars ride is a great combination between street and and track feel. Its not too rough, but tight enough to handle very well. The car feels absolutely perfect in the corners. The car now has a 3.73 rear end currently. I was wanting to go back to a 4.10 but I never got around to it. The 4.10 gave the car a little more low end grunt. Overall the car is a perfect for daily driving or a great weekend car. The clean E30s are getting hard to come by nowadays. This is a beautiful and classy E30 with a great history. PM or Email me for all questions.

    Price:

    $7,800 obo

    Thanks!

      It does not have a radio. Just has the radio filler plate. I actually enjoy these cars much more without radios. Such a blast listening to all the E30's noises. :) All speakers were removed as well.

                Wow, beautiful.

                I hate to say it but it's going to be hard to sell...especially with the current market conditions.

                Good luck! Looks great.

                      Thanks for the comments guys. The car really is great. I hate to get rid of it but I am in dire need of a truck/suv and cant justify keeping this one. I dont think it will be hard to sell. There are numerous people looking for clean E30's nowadays. Normally the good ones are snatched up pretty quickly.

                        yeah, im looking for a clean e30, but thats just to much for a non-m50 e30. car looks amazing and u MIGHT get a buyer, but i just think thats to much. my opinion though. Good luck with sale and pm me if you want to sell it for a little less :)

                          He's asking just the right price. It gets expensive real quick to get an e30 up to these standards. GL man!
                          - skipping the E36 generation completely -

                              I said the price was OBO...and to me a non hacked-up E30 will always be worth more than the transplanted cars. (Even though the transplants are more fun!)

                              are those seats vinyl?
                              The seats are apart of Kevins (creative options) line of covers. They are not Vinyl, but are not a full leather. IIRC they are the Symphony line of covers. Sorry for a non exact answer but I cant find his website to confirm what it is.
