    The distributor being at the back of the block makes the swap more difficult in some cases, it can get in the way when trying to push the engine back as far as possible. Weight is another reason, 302 out of a fox body or f150 is a lot lighter than an L98 out of a turd gen camaro or a 350 out of a truck.

                I've never even seen or heard of that kit. I'm pretty sure the reason why is because every e30 person in the word except the person that created it and whoever put it on that car thought it was really stupid. I just can't Imagine that Someone actually spent money on that.

                    Guy brought this about 2weeks ago for 15k and now its back up for sale. Saw it on here, cant remember the member and saw the guy on FB brought it as is and shipped it to his place.

                      An E30 M3 for 15k? What was wrong with it? Certainly more than what is mentioned in the description. That's one hell of a flip job if he really bought it 2 weeks ago, I hope it doesn't sell...

                          That's 0-60's car that was spotted by other R3Vers on its way down to his place in TX. I wondered why he had bought it - possibly bought to see if it would provide a suitable body for a restoration by Jordan? Body looked pretty rough IIRC...

                              But look how nicely he has that windshield washer bottle installed? Easily worth $20k

                              But seriously, that's been on CL for awhile here... and I get a LOL every time I see it so I don't bother hiding it in my results.

                                90% or this thread is just people shitting on overpriced e30’s and I love it. But let me introduce a bit of awesome. I found this gem, early model 324td, 105k mileage (just broken in!), euro bits, brown glass, style 10’s, seems to be structural sound just from a glimpse at the pictures. The price is really good... In all seriousness I hope someone picks this up and takes care of it. Awesome daily driver!
