    i get where you are going with that. to me it seems like those are prices people ask hoping to catch a lucky break with a car guy, but honestly i've never seen a car sell for anywhere close to that premium. not for a fairly utilitarian bmw anyway.

    ferarri 575's with a manual occasionally sell for close to 300k whereas the dct is around a 125k vehicle. the irony is that like the e46 m3, the transmission is the same. a guy could easily convert the 575 with a few thousand dollars worth of parts from a 550. is it original? no. a purist would probably loose his shit, but to an enthusiast, it would be pure harmony.


    just the same....the car in question above is a 328xi. seems like boredom in motion. if it were a 335, i could see an extra couple grand or so.

    Enthusiasts pay more for manual cars. Been proven over and over again. We had been looking for an e61 5er wagon for awhile and manuals were usually $5000-10000 (yes, $10k) more expensive. We bought an auto.

    While I wouldn't pay that price for that e90/6... someone will. We've made our beds as enthusiasts...

    there is no way that thing is worth anywhere close to 13.5k. that is laughable. this is the mileage where everything is preprogramed to fall apart on these crappy cars. probably the reason its owner is selling.

    i would guess the drivetrain could in theory handle a more powerful engine. i bet you would almost need to be a rocket scientist to figure out the wiring diagram however. apparently they made a 335xi wagon. rather than an engine swap, i would say that car probably already has an n54 installed?

    the screenshot posted below says the centerdiff is mechanical with limited slip. i highly doubt that is correct.

    Are the drivetrains in AWD E90s durable enough to take a beating from say, an N54 swap or even a turbocharged N52, or are they like the weak stuff in the E30 ix?

    Maybe he meant to say "Passenger Windbag" and he's including his old lady with the sale.

    Yes, when the passenger sees an accident is going to happen she has to puff up her cheeks for airbag protection.

    "1990 BMW 325i convertible with 61,300 miles in excellent condition. 100% stock, unmolested. New tires, new OEM convertible. No accidents. All original manuals available, toolkit intact. Manual transmission, passenger air bag, leather heated seats, power everything. Best color combination for this sporty car. It still drives wonderfully ? well-balanced handling with a silky smooth 6 cylinder. Bought the car for wife when it was one year old. Sorry to see it go but we need to downsize."
    Clean and low miles, but $17.5k is craaack smoker price.

    Seems like a pretty straightforward scenario here: offer the guy $3500 for the S engine and the e30 total.

    looks to me like this car was almost perfect before this teenager got ahold of it. so sad.

    no low balls? how about if i dangle my balls over his face? that way he won't have to bend down to lick the sweat off them.
