    The character is different enough this makes sense.
    I had planned to swap the vert, but we are enjoying it as is, M42 and all.
    I've got a line on a 89 coupe (automatic, blown head gasket) to swap.
    Should make a nice counterpart to a stock vert.

      I agree with multiple e30s. Nothing like cruising the Pacific Coast Highway in a vert. Did it in a coupe which was fun but the whole time I was thinking it would be so much better in a vert and it was.

        A 2-year old 318ic was my first BMW and I've been smitten ever since. Plenty of fun with the M42 and 5-speed. Beer and food came off the vinyl seats easily. Put 20k miles on it in a little over a year, but sold it because I was getting into SCCA racing. Missed it from the day I sold it.

        Fast forward to 2006. As soon as I could afford a 3rd car, I went and found another low mileage 'vert. Will be buried in it. Yes, the driving dynamic is completely different than a coupe/sedan, but any E30 guy who doesn't understand is just a hater.

            Was amazed how much the Alpina B3 went for on BAT as it's not legal here in US yet and still drew 25k with slushbox.

                  The 318is looks nice in the pictures but I’d like to get an up close look at the restoration especially the corrosion areas.

                    Damn, the mythos of the 318is is getting better every listing.

It was unique, fun, cheap to maintain. It could basically run forever. I should have just kept it.

                        Jim powell... that sounds really familiar. I vaguely remember him having an estoril blue e36 me back in early 2000??

                          I do have to say - there is a bunch of want on BAT right now. That E24 ending today is taunting me. I doubt it will stay at that price, but damn..

                          Also, the LS powered Bavaria and that Bronzit E28. The E34 Alpina is also on my radar..

                          in the non-Bimmer arena - the Dodge Dart vert is sexy as hell. I owned a hard top version 20+ years ago, and I wish I had kept that one. As well the Datsun race car - I still love those little boxy things..

                            A little over a half hour left on the 318i vert and its at $7k. Will this one skyrocket into the high teens or will it just clear 10 and close out??

                              what's up with that '74 3.0CS. The patch in the spare tire well - I just can't stop noticing it. Looks really bad. It's not like you can't get at the area to run a well from the outside.. Probably the easiest patch you could do, but it looks like they just took a piece of metal, set it in there and ran a bead from the inside. Looks really shade tree.

                                Not sure, but E9s started rusting the minute they were completed from the factory... its a shame how bad some of them are
