              M20B27 (IIRC) and E36 non-M 5 lug susp. Missing the interior, cluster, drivetrain and suspension, so it's hard to even call it an M3 at this point. Fair deal for what it is, though.

                I actually have screenshots of when I talked to "idanity" about buying this car years ago.

                "This is technically two E30 M3s, but three were used to make one whole one. It's a clear title, but it's pretty obvious where the repair was done." This was December of 2015, it was missing all the M3 specific stuff, except for the instrument cluster, according to him.

                He was after $12k firm at the time.

                    It's barely an M3 at this point.

                    M20 powered (it had a B27 when he bought the car, may have a B25 by now)
                    E36 non-M suspension
                    325i interior, missing most (if not all) the M3 bits, allegedly still had an M3 cluster
                    BMP Design front bumper

                    Don't know where the car was cut and welded, but if it took three cars to get it to that condition...eek

                      Daily driven to work all winter. This thing is a snow machine. This car drives great and is very reliable.

                      Needs some love cosmetically but everything mechanical is sorted out. There is rust on a few body panels and some of the clear coat is peeling as you can see in the pictures

                      Motor is original and strong, no CEL at ~240k, original transmission and clutch shift smoothly
                      The transfer case is healthy, all diffs were serviced and fluids changed 8k miles ago
                      Oil changed every 3000 miles
                      No cracks on dash
                      Sunroof cranks open smoothly and seals with no leaks
                      AC worked during last test but belt has been removed
                      Radiator replaced in last year and core heater added for instant heat in winter!
                      Valves adjusted in last 3k miles, all brake lines replaced 2 years ago
                      Rear speakers replaced in last 6 months
                      Winter tires, All season tires on vintage Ronal Turbo wheels and summer tires on 2nd set of wheels
                      Complete "newer" interior in great condition in storage with 2nd set of tires
                      Headlights upgraded to Depot projectors
                      Header back exhaust and CAT replaced in last 2 years
                      Electric mirrors, windows, locks, and warning lights all work
                      I have the keys to the roof rack!
                      The odometer stopped working in the last 1500 miles (3 months or so ago)
                      Gas gauge "works"
                      4 new rotors, calipers and pads at the end of last summer
                      This awd E30 has 4.10 diffs from the factory and is very quick off the line and around the city

                                LOL People in sales know exactly what that means. "lowballers" is the closest I'll describe it means.
