    1991 BMW E30 with S50 B30 Euro Engine Swap, as featured here by Roads Untraveled: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4bk-X00PDU

    - Year: April 1991
    - Model: E30 318is SE (Special Edition) - available in unique colours and trims not previously available for this model
    - Current Mileage (Chassis): 318k km
    - Current Mileage (Engine): 300k km (46k km since full rebuild)
    - Exterior Colour: Laguna Green, no rust
    - Interior Colour: Black leather seats with beige carpet
    - Seats: 5
    - Wheels: custom built and re-finished, period-correct Compomotive 3-piece wheels with Radinox (stainless steel) lips
    - Engine and Drivetrain:
    - Originally from my 1994 E36 M3 Eurospec - S50 B30 Euro Engine, which I owned for 5 years, imported from Japan at 188k km
    - The engine had a full professional top and bottom rebuild at CG Motorsports at 264k km. CG knew the M3 well since I took delivery in 2009.
    - The entire M3 drivetrain was transplanted into the E30 at 284k km
    - Use: currently used as a daily driver from about Mar/April until late Oct
    - Home: parked in undercover garage
    - Ownership: I have owned this car for 6yrs and the engine and drivetrain for 10yrs
    - Other/recent: manual sunroof, Wilwood big brake kit, electric windows, Alpine stereo (OEM will be included), ellipsoid “smiley” projector headlights, Ground Control coilovers, IE sway bars, fully refreshed steering and suspension tie rods/bushings, new battery, etc.

    I love this car and there is a lot more to it than most would care to read, so if you’re genuinely interested, please feel free to contact me for more information or to arrange a viewing. I can provide a list of modifications and upgrades to the purchaser to keep with the car for documentation. All documentation for the car and engine will be included with the sale.

    Looking for $20,000, which is extremely reasonable for an E30 in this condition and in this unique specification. No test drives, but I'm happy to take you for a ride. Please, no time wasters. Low ballers will be ignored.
    Looks like he just bumped his build thread in the Project Car Forum, but didn't see he listed it for sale until I watched the video. Looks like a really cool car.

    1994 Bmw 325is mtech 1/150 made - $4999
    I've never heard of one of this car before. Basically a slower E36 M3 with cooler trim.

    It appears to be a slicktop, that does a lot for value. With no knowledge of the Aussie car market I don't know what E30 prices have looked like over the past few years, but $21,000 AUD is $14,208 USD and I could see an equivalent car going for more than that on Bring a Trailer easily. With an M42 swap it would be the perfect 4cyl E30.

    Some Aussie adds have been getting into the crack pipe range lately - https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/toorak/cars-vans-utes/1989-bmw-e30-318i-series-2-manual-with-m40b18-sohc-1-8l-engine-/1224791889

    Nice car, but $21k for a bottom of the range stripper spec with an M40?! There's also an S54 swapped car someone is trying to get $52k for - to put it into perspective you can pick up an e46 M3 manual for $25 - $35k or an e39 M5 manual for similar money. An e92 M3 manual with around 60,000 miles for $40k.

    i think multiple people have to flag before the ad actually goes away. don't auto ads cost like 5 bucks each now? i think that would cut down on a lot of them.


    that e with the burned quarter panel is a dumpster fire, but i think it is well worth 1500 bucks.

    Impressively crap, also, can't figure out if those are some GM seat or from a Volvo.

    These people deserve to get flagged and posts removed. I always see the postings for a engine wholesale guy and it just spams the listing around me which are already scarce to find.

    Mileage : 86,680 miles
    Transmission : Manual
    Exterior Color : Alpina blue
    Interior Color : Alpina cloth

    Description of this BMW Alpina B3 3.0

    Super rare 1994 BMW Alpina B3 3.0 sedan. THis B3 is #127 produced and was equipped from the factory with a 5 speed manual trans. The Alpina has 139,498 km or just over 68k original miles.

    These are extremely rare and cool cars!! This Alpina B3 is most comparable to a tightweight edition E36 M3 (which are $150k plus)... They have more HP, torque and less weight that the LTW M3 as well an inverted HD bilstein shocks, bigger sway bars and a tighter rack!!

    The cars miles have been verified authenic through a third party, and is bonded and insured.

    We have the original alpina books, as well as shaken reports and maintenace records included with the sale. The Alpina is turn key, and reasy to enjoy!! The prices are only going to go up on these as more come into the states.. What was once unattainable, is finally here!



    With around 250 hp on tap from a reworked M50B25TU straight-six, performance potential should be very similar to a comparable E36 M3/4/5 (M3, four-door, 5-speed), albeit in a more exclusive package.



    Although quite early, at least in terms of US-market availability for the E36, the B3 3.0 was actually the second Alpina model based on the platform, with the rarer B6 2.8 having come before, and production reaching 220 units between March of 1992 and June of 1993. Nonetheless, this 1993 B3 3.0 was still made years before the platform facelift of 1996, and has a number of easily noticeable early-model qualities about it. Based on the production 325i sedan, modifications included an Alpina-specific aero kit made up of a low-slung air dam, along with side skirts and a small trunk lid-mounted spoiler.

    Much of the running gear, wheels and suspension were carried over from the B6 2.8, and included Bilstein dampers and 17″ Alpina multi-spoke wheels wrapped in significantly upsized 235- and 265-section tires front and rear, respectively. Brakes also used larger ventilated rotors up front, but this example appears to be fitted with a big brake kit. Badging and the model designation remain in place on the rear, and the color is listed as Diamond Black (Diamantschwarz) with gold Alpina graphics. Mirrors are aero items that resemble the type worn by the M3.

    Inside, Alpina-fitted wood trim is found on the center console and door panels, while gauges wear the company's signature blue on their faces. The steering wheel was updated from the B6 2.8 to the B3 3.0, but keen eyes will notice that this early E36 is devoid of airbags for either front passenger. Alpina cloth upholstery still shows well.

    Up front lives the three-liter version of BMW's M50B25TU 24-valve straight six which features VANOS variable cam timing on the intake side. Original output for this engine was 190 horsepower at 5900 rpm with 184 lb. ft. of torque at 4200, figures that were improved significantly to 250 and 236 (respectively) through increasing displacement, fitting Mahle pistons, performance camshafts and Alpina's own exhaust system. This one has a few visible modifications in place, such as silicone cooling hoses and a strut brace of some kind, but the wide-runner intake manifold appears to be the factory unit. Maintenance records are included.

    Performance was quite respectable for the era with a zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) time of 6.4 seconds and top speed of 164 mph. Interestingly enough, the B3 3.0 was several thousand Deutschmarks less expensive than the B6 2.8 that it replaced, which meant it also undercut the M3 which was just hitting the streets exclusively in coupe form around the time this example sold new.

    Super clean body, fresh paint job a year ago that could use some attention but the car has had all body work sorted though on the way home I had a rear caliper lock up and cause a minor brake fire so rear quarter needs a respray. I'm told it has a Rare color option(painted black currently)
