    Probably got an equivalency letter from BMW, that would probably be the only legal avenue.

      Are M-Tech verts bringing this kind of coin these days? Maybe the seller goofed and put an extra zero on the end of the price.

      325i cabriolet, ec05196
      alpine white II (218) over lotus white full leather (0462)
      m20b25/getrag 260 5-speed manual/3.73 LSD
      181k miles, second owner, clean OR title in hand
      rare m-technic appearance package (770 code)
      largely stock vehicle, down to the original color matched 14" wheels
      cyl head rebuild in 2002, timing belt/water pump in 2015, new H&R/Bilstein suspension, very mechanically sorted
      glass out repaint in 2018, new euro spec mtechnic front and rear bumpers, new mtechnic front spoiler
      lots of misc hardware replaced, body seals/gaskets, etc
      good, driver quality, mtechnic e30

      i have owned this car since July, 2015. having purchased it from its original owner, i knew it was a car worth saving, particularly, because it was one of a select few that was optioned with the 770 package, as well as a manual transmission, which was uncommon. the original owner was a lawyer and this was reportedly his first major car purchase. somewhere along the line, the car ended up sitting from ~2007, until i purchased the car. right before the car got parked, the pads/rotors/calipers were all replaced. from what i can see, from digging into the car, the cylinder head and related parts (misc cooling hoses, fuel hoses) were serviced around 2002 - my best guess, the owner neglected to change the timing belt and it failed. engine runs very well.

      the first thing i did was replace the timing belt, water pump, cap, rotor, plugs, fuel and air filters. at the same time, i replaced the torn, power top assembly (with a failed motor) with a good, used, manual top assembly. i then daily drove it for about a year before taking it off the road.

      in early 2017, i stripped the car down and prepared it for a full body and paint job. it took over a year, but i finally got the car back. i have lots of pictures during the process. only recently, was i able to spend a couple weeks and reassemble the car. it's a driver quality paint job.

      during my ownership, i have done the following:
      -new Bilstein Sport dampers and H&R Sport springs (9/20)
      -oil service (9/20)
      -remanufactured factory steering rack, OE motor mounts (9/20)
      -new 205/60/14 tires (9/20)
      -timing belt/water pump/partial inspection 2, overhauled shifting assembly@ 171k (8/15)
      -new OE mtechnic front spoiler (9/16)
      -new OE euro spec mtechnic front bumper assembly (9/16)
      -new OE euro spec mtechnic rear bumper assembly (9/16)
      -new OE outer window scrapers, window guide/door seals (where the door meets the top), cabrio front top seal, wiper grommets, wiper cowl covers, almost all of the mtechnic mounting hardware, door hinge bushings, roundels, kidney grill, Euro headlight grills, H4 low beams, etc (8/20)

        One on this board sold for over 20k I believe. Definitely not $3200 they are harder to come by then the regular verts.

          Driver quality paint, formerly popped engine, seemingly not really repaired. 35k, maybe try 13.5k at most.

            Seller might have gotten closer to $20k:

            https://www.r3vlimited.com/board/for...rance-pkg-sold

            I would expect it to be near perfect for that money. Surely an 'is' would be super clean for $20k.

                        Its kinda cool, it would look amazing if it wasnt for that rear wheel well setup that makes the rear tire look super small.

                          I think that's a 4 cylinder Fiero engine.
