Here's 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 items 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 is worth.

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


If listing wheels and/or tires
-Post the brand and model

-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 what you are willing to pay. Only douchebags will bump up their price if your price is higher then theirs.
-Where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup only


In case the point was not made, everything being sold must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist. Do not post links to either for your ad. The same goes for 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.
-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, please stay out of the thread or else be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Only bump your thread once a day. You are allowed to respond to others more then once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    1989 325is - S52 SWAP

    Disclaimer - Hello Rev! Finally getting around to post my car up on the forum. Ive had the car on facebook and have had a few interested parties, however no one with cash in hand yet. I have lowered the price to $18,500 as i think this is a more fair price. Im willing to come down lower without the RS wheels included. Im not interested in going back and forth with people that don't think the car is worth my asking price and as a result, i wont be replying to any of your drama. This car is not a show car, but its a damn nice example of a e30 swap and is extremely solid and reliable. Thanks for taking the time to check it out.


    Selling my beloved E30. I bought this car from a seller that had the intentions of restoring the car, but never moved forward with his plans. Over the last 2-3 years I’ve spent countless hours and thousands of dollars revamping it. This car gets many compliments and thumbs up on the road and is extremely reliable. The car was meticulously maintained at Castros during my ownership and I have receipts to provide to seller for service and performance upgrades. The car is not currently BAR’D, however it could easily be done. The car has roughly $13k in upgrades, I have receipts for about $9k of service/repairs at Castros, and the swap cost would add around another $7k-9k to building this type of car (in addition the actual cost of the 325is which go for 6-10k these days for a really clean one).

    The California title is clean with the exception of a minor fender bender that happened on the front passenger side before I bought the car. There was no structural damage whatsoever and the car was professionally repaired with new oem fender. The car was also repainted at some point in its life with its original color (im guessing about 6 years ago). I had the paint corrected after I purchased the car and glazed a few years ago. Many people have said that this is the shiniest red e30 they’ve ever seen. The car originally had cracked trim and sagging bumper issues so I bought front/rear bumpers from a different e30 and installed new oem euro trim. I had the bumpers repainted at Exoticar (very reputable shop) in Los Angeles and they also painted all the window/door trim satin black. There are some minor paint chip issues on car and around the driver side front fender from the aggressive stance. The interior is super clean with minor cracks in seats from age and no cracks at all on dash.

    The car has zero rust, however it has some battery acid rot in the rear passenger side of car which seems to be a normal e30 issue. It’s under control and I was planning on replacing the whole rear lower valence of the car or having Body shop weld in some metal to area at some point.This is not visible while looking at car, but eventually should be taken care of. The car comes with lots of random spare parts, a spare sunroof panel and motor, oem IS lip, spare rs faces, spare painted window trim, IS lip splitter, spare tail lights, obd computer, etc.

        Thank you! The AC was removed from car, however all lines are still in tact if someone would like to reinstall other pieces. Im working on getting more pics of car, as well as some walk around/driving videos uploaded this weekend. Youre welcome to send someone over to look at car anytime!

                      Bump for a great seller. I spoke with him as soon as I saw the car on r3v FB and while we couldn't strike a deal, I would encourage people to check this car out as it is not misrepresented at all, and the seller was very responsive to my requests for additional video of all kinds to get the clearest understanding possible about the car. Honest and standup guy
