    I strongly suspect that a non turbo M21 is boring. That said, it's a fair deal.

    Comment


      I wouldnt mind that as a daily... Ive been looking for a more fuel efficient E30 setup. The M21 wouldnt be bad, but isnt possible here in CA on my 88

In all seriousness I hope someone picks this up and takes care of it. Awesome daily driver!

          That is a solid find, I'd rock he hell outta that. Would love to have a D to zip around with my 1 hour commute each way coming up. Wonder how it does on Mpg? And we don't have to worry about any smog or reg issues in Washington either. Have you seen the car in person by chance?

              i think that 324td was posted previously. i was thinking it was on nashville craigs before?

              anyway, around that time there was also another one posted in the northeast that i think was probably a better deal. i would go back 3 or 4 pages and look it up but i'm too busy watching nfl...(lazy)

              i don't mind the style really. i don't like that they have black centers. painted silver would be good in my book. anyway, i like them a lot better than anything borbet imho. sorry all you borbet guys....

                    I'd never own one but I can appreciate them for sure! Seems like a pod price.

                      its a polarizing car but i think it appears to be a good value considering condition and rarity.

                        e39 part out.... why

                        https://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/c...441464931.html

                        Not sure if anyone has saw this... I about got sick to my stomach when I saw. Perfect e39 m5 that is getting parted out because the owner "couldn't find a buyer"... why.

                              I used to have a super nice E39 530i, ZHP engine swapped, 6MT swapped, ESS Twinscrewed. Huge brakes, killer stereo, PSS9's, M5 headlining, nice nice nice everything.

                              Tons of time wasters kicked the tires (and burned them off) never got near my asking price, I think my closest offer was 6k lower.

                              I finally said fuck it, I knew what the shit was worth, and I spent one weekend parting it to the ground. Cleared $2k above my asking price on the complete car.




                              When it comes to money, I'm not fucking around.

                                Seriously, when it comes to money just do whatever you want, but it's always a shame to waste a good car. Of course the alternative would be to swap back to more stock components, sell the car at a lower price and sell the extras separately.
