      There are companies that will box up your car for you, probably an 80% reduction in volume. That should allow you to keep it around, but I hear that unpacking services are difficult to find.

        For that much money, there are so many non-BMW choices out there.

            Agent you nailed it recently drove feom Vegas to Santa Clarita car was filthy, guy had no idea what work had been done (bought it from an enthusiast a month earlier) and no gas. Car looked fantastic in pictures, said he had a folder of receipts, imside the folder was a Ralphs grocery store receipt! It was my fault I was overly excited about the car and did not due my normal due diligence. I did bring a mechanic who I bought a limited edition In n Out tshirt to reduce the sting!

              1984 318i coupe m20 swap & bumper delete PNW

              Very rad looking project if you're into quirky coupes. Has some kind of respray. If the seller is on the level, it appears to be in a very tantalizing middle stage of restoration for 3k !

              I've been curious about custom bumper mods if anyone knows of some other looks that have been tried out. I really like the look of this one, reads like a bumper delete 2002.

                New X pipe ?


                Is the person running a dual exhaust setup? why would you use an X pipe on a bmw inline 6?

                      The OEM E30 exhaust on a 325 is dual so you could put an xpipe in there.

                      I have an Xpipe on my S54 in my e30, headers going into dual 2.25 inch section one, dual cats, X pipe to dual 2.25 pipes again into dual inlet E36 exhaust.

                      Its pretty common to put Xpipes on the S54 which is inline 6 to quiet the rasp.

                            Seems like good value at $5,500. It's a manual & has lots of new parts. Only 124k miles

                            1985 BMW 635csi - $5500 (Charlotte)

                            https://charlotte.craigslist.org/cto...839761805.html



                            Selling my 1985 635csi. The car is in mechanically sound condition, I've taken it on many 3-4 hour road trips without issue. The motor and trans are in good shape and the clutch is strong. About $3500 in parts has recently been put into the brakes and suspension so it drives like new. These cars are rare, especially in a 5 speed, and this one has pretty low miles. It's entirely rust free besides a few small holes in the trunk from water leaking in.

                            The following parts have roughly 1000 miles or fewer on them:
                            Brake booster
                            Brake master cylinder
                            Brake accumulator
                            H&R sport springs
                            Bilstein B8 shocks
                            E31 front lower control arms
                            Front upper control arms
                            Front brake rotors
                            Front brake pads
                            Both rear axles
                            Short shifter
                            Ignition lock cylinder
                            Several vacuum hoses/intake boot
                            The lower front bumper was repainted and fitted with a custom LED foglight conversion
                            The ECU was just rebuilt
                            One of the crankshaft position sensors in the trans

                            With any car this old there are typical minor problems. The AC stopped working recently, the clearcoat is peeling in some areas and the interior isn't in great shape. The seal at the top of the gas tank is deteriorated, so the car will leak gas if filled to the brim. If you fill it 3/4 of the way, it does not leak. There is also a vacuum leak of some kind causing a rough idle on cold starts. Once the engine warms up, the car idles normally. These are the only issues I know of.

                            Dropped the price to $5500 to sell fast. Feel free to contact me with any questions or offers.

                              That appears to be a great deal on the six series. I have had hit and miss luck with craigslist. That you got several is excellent.
