    $15k without a sweat. I bet it gets closer to 20k.

    Too bad the grill is blacked out. Easy fix.
    Drive it hard. Maintain it well.

      Just found this thread... according to what I read my car is one of the 8 automatic cars in 1992.

      Canadian car originally sold in London, Ontario. Now resides in Toronto.

      770 Code
      Black/Black
      Automatic
      EC29509
      Production 04/92

      Will be swapping to manual over the winter. I was able to find an original Getrag 260 from another 1992 325ic (EC06357) for the swap.

Purchased from the BMWCCA Sin City chapter president off ebay in 2007 and now lives its pampered life outside of Chicago. Only drive her a couple hundred miles each year when the weather is perfect.

            Fixed. Also I noticed the link for the pic you posted went bad so I'll post the one I have uploaded on Flickr.

              Sorry, I couldn't remember who posted it first. Anyway, Sickfinga is saying the number of appearance package is actually much lower at around 710 and the print out is incorrect. Perhaps it was just a projection. Sure seems like there's a lot more than that but who knows.

                here's mine ...

                I have a 1991 771A car in Sterling Silver originally with auto now converted. Upholstery had been replaced when I got it but now waiting for a Kevin Chinn kit with correct fabric, originally had evo cloth. Redid the cracked dash with leather cover. New set of Euro Weaves replaced the Fittipaldi's it came with. Going to install a M Tech 2 rear spoiler on a w/o brake light decklid and transfer the trunk lid liner to the new lid. Low miles and runs great ... My wife has an 11 Miata Touring and I can't get her out of the M Tech ... ;)

                    Long, overdue bump to this thread. Updated the first post with all the awaiting submissions from August of last year. I no longer get 90% of my email notifications from the site, for whatever reason, and completely forgot about this thread. Sorry to all who felt slighted that the original post didn't get updated.

                      Still need to do a carfax, but the car has 159k miles, and has had alot of mechanical work done to it recently. Previous owner also serviced the A/C, so it blows ice cold!

                        From the VIN decoder, it lists your car being 08/1991 (which makes sense, since your VIN is only 20 away from mine), and not optioned with limited-slip when it rolled off the line, but was optioned with heated seats! Welcome to the elitist group!

                              Stock LSD and Heated seats.

                              Picked up mine a few months ago from a guy in fresno, which is why I'm back on R3V. I'm currently in the Bay Area.

                              the body and interior are in great condition. The guy took good care of it but I'm assuming he was more of an old school muscle car guy judging by the nature of his "fixes" including:

                              -He Replaced the MTech II front valence with a stock one
                              -Drilling through the tonneau cover and welding locking hood pins to the cassis to keep it down
                              - And installing rear air shocks to lift the car with an air chuck so he could clear the god awful 0MM offset rims on it...

                              Anyway, I decided to save it and i'm currently in process of making it right.
                              here are some before and after pics. ill get some nicer pics up once the car is done ;)
