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.

    i have this tank too. no complaints. Had a hell of a time getting the fuel filler hose on but I think thats because my subframe is raised 12mm. fixed my rusty internal return line issue.

    box was pretty beat up upon delivery and one of the corners was bent but 2 seconds and that was fixed.

      No experience with that tank, can you not get the Spectra where you are at? If you can I would just go with that.

        Nope, USA has a lot more parts available to car enthusiast, we often struggle to find old BM parts locally in Australia.
        The ATP tank include shipping cost is about 25% cheaper then Spectra tank from Rock Auto, this is why I asked if there is any review about the ATP tank.

        p.s. Update. Look like I'd better stay away from this company. https://au.trustpilot.com/review/www.atp-autoteile.de

          The return line on my OEM tank got gunked up and was resulting in absurdly high fuel pressure at the rail causing me to run super rich. No luck trying to clear it out with carb cleaner and E85 didn't work either. Ended up buying the spectra tank and am very happy with it. Everything fit perfectly. Tabs that fuel pump and sender turn into were a bit tight and required a screwdriver as a chisel to drive home, but overall great fit. Only thing I wish this tank would have is beaded ends where the hoses connect - they are simply straight cut with no bead to ensure clamp doesn't move. So far no issues! The kit even came with new pump and sender o rings, which was a nice finishing touch! Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk

            I had exactly the same problem, and a new tank was the only solution. Bonus: increase in fuel capacity because the new one wasn't smashed in.

            I didn't undercoat it, but did paint with an epoxy spray paint.
            Fit was OEM exact except for the dents where fuckmonkeys had jacked the car up on the tank (ON BOTH SIDES! WTF?!).

              i got one of these when i had to change out mine on 87 bmw 325i convertible. With the exception of no drainplug, and one small tweak i had to do in one corner, it fits great and have had no issue in the year i have had it installed.
