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.

    FS: Early Model IS Bumper Brackets, "Cow Catcher", Available Now!

    Hi r3v!
    I am starting to produce brackets for early model IS valences. Iíve taken a look at a thread from a couple years ago, when sets were produced after they stopped being available from BMW. This thread hasn't been active for years, so I feel alright hijacking the idea

    Sets available for sale now! PayPal $60 ($65 if you pay with fees) to zephyrpitre@gmail.com to get your set shipped to you.

    Shipping only within the Continental US at this price. Please contact me if you are international, we can work something out!

    Iím giving away two sets to get some feedback from the community, and ensure that they fit and work perfectly. If you have over 200 posts, and youíre interested in having a set shipped to your door, FOR FREE, please shoot me a pm :)
    Here are some photos, these new brackets match the original design, except that the lower thinner portion is reinforced. These have been claimed.

    Not officially for sale yet, but I expect the price point to be around $75 shipped for a set of three.

    These are printed PLA, which will be strong and durable. However if there is interest from those intent on maintaining their E30 for the next hundred years, I can produce solid aluminum brackets for a higher price.
    Huge thanks to 2mAn for the old bracket I modeled this off!

        Those look great! I made my own out of steel bar. I wish I saw these first but I don't have 200 posts yet.

                Nice job! I think the reason for the thinner piece on the bottom is so that if you bump into something the bracket breaks instead of your (NLA) cow catcher.

                  Interesting! I could pretty easily add a similar breakable, replaceable bar if the community wants it...

                      By the way, you may know this but the center piece is a bit different from the outer pieces.
                      Thanks!

                            Hi see attached a picture of my OEM brackets. They're dinged up so it's hard to tell if the centre bracket is different but to me they look the same. Anyone want to point out what I am missing LOL
