      Curious as to where he was trying to sell this car before giving up and parting out. It would be a supremely stupid move to rely on craigslist to sell something like that, if you don't want to deal with craigslist people you should take your car to a more discerning classified than craigslist. If you post something like that M5 or Jordan's 530i on craigslist and expect anything more than tire kicking and low balling you deserve what you're getting. Craigslist is free and open to everyone, you have to expect a mixed experience if you use it.

          Jesus! That car didn’t sell because it was way overpriced. Even with the dinan parts, that car isn’t worth 38 grand! Mid 20s sure. Upper 20s...maaaaybe. A black one sold locally in the low 20s a few mos ago with the same equipment and similar miles. I’ve seen a few others in that range too.

          Yes!!!! This is the car you NEED to build! Let me know if you want me to start searching for you.

          Probably Jordan probably isn’t very excited about doing a v8 swap.

            Now up to $25,900. If what you're saying about this car being a 15k car a few weeks ago and "pretty rough" is true, someone's about to get ripped off in 14hrs time.

            Nope. They don't look right on that car at all. But I hate painted centers and polished rims with very few exceptions and I've never seen black wheels with polished rims that look good on anything, it's just a bad combo.

              Varg, nobody is getting ripped off, i am a transparent seller, not understanding the hate, but i suppose its normal.

                I had an 01 blk/blk M5...love that car :(

                Sold it for $11k about 6 years ago as the VANOS went out on one bank and couldn't afford to fix it so I sold the car at auction.

                The price on these cars sucks to sell them.

                  I'd say it's due to the fact that we're on a site of enthusiasts who dream of owning an E30 M3, but the affordable examples get scooped up and flipped making them inaccessible to the average joe. It also doesn't help that you clearly don't need the money via the cars in your sig ;)

                  On the other hand, I can't blame you in the least, and that was great flip!

                    Welcome to the real world. You have to be lucky and prepared to swoop on a good deal. If you're sitting on cash, you are 2 steps ahead of the guy who has hoops to jump through. Am I jealous that he bought it for $15k, a little. Am I mad that he's flipping it, nope.

                    You have to hustle in this world, I found a tiny little niche that sometimes affords me a few bucks for being a middle man and it helps support the hobby. Dont hate the player

                      No hate here man- I've already got mine.

                      As a die hard enthusiast, though, I can't help but secretly wish all of the affordable M3s that popped up were loved and cherished instead of just put on eBay to make a buck. But that's how the world goes 'round.

                        To me the E30 M3 is overhyped to the highest degree of just about any car I know of, hence me thinking $26,000+ for a rusty and rough car that was $15k only recently is a rip off. Never have been a fan of flipping in the first place, a good car is meant to be driven and enjoyed not hyped on youtube videos and stared at by collectors and flippers.

                          E30s in general are fairly overhyped. Even a few years ago they were still fairly affordable. If I were getting into cars now, I'd probably be getting into something else. E30s are way too expensive for what they are and the prices on BAT are just nuts at times.
                          AWD > RWD

                            The problem is the lack of alternatives. Other than Miatas, very little exists that is RWD, fairly lightweight and in the same price range, and nothing is as common. E36s are cheap and common but other than the 318ti they aren't light.

                              Yep I just went through this whole thing. e30s are cheap* and the knowledge to work on them is out there.

                              Wife wouldn't let me have a miata or a subaru. I think e36s are butt ugly and e46s have too much electronics.

                                Why bother to post something like this on CL? LOL talk about some tirekickers coming to waste your time.

                                1990 Ferrari F40 - $1,495,000 (san carlos)

                                https://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/ctd...431625921.html



                                1990 Ferrari F40 for sale. Presented in striking Rosso Corsa, this numbers matching, well documented F40 has traveled 7,331 miles since new. All service and maintenance records are included as well as the original owners manual & tool kit

                                Additionally, all 1992 model year upgrades have been performed and are detailed in the service file

                                The last major service was performed in July, 2014 which included:

                                Major service (belts, gaskets, filters, etc.)
                                New battery
                                Bulkhead coolant hoses replaced
                                Fuel tank crossover hoses replaced
                                F / R brake hoses replaced with updated factory parts
                                Hill Engineering alloy cam belt tension bearings installed

                                Few F40s in total were produced. Even fewer US spec F40s such as our car were made, only 213 of the total 1,337 cars were officially built for the US market. It set the standard for all contemporary exotic cars with mind boggling stats even today; sub 2900 lb curb weight, 478hp Twin turbo 2.9L V8, 0 to 60 mph in just over 3 seconds and a top speed well north of 200 mph
