    It is a nice car, but for me, this is the least desirable e30 configuration. m42/late model/vert.

    If I were going to get an e30 vert, it would be an m20/early vert, which is exactly what I have :p

    An m20's sound, plus no top = one very nice time.
    M20/5 spd and top down with quality exhaust you can live with....wish the injectors could be silenced...guess that's part of the charm.

        I took a girl out in my vert one time, we had the top down and she asked, "is that your car making that noise?"

        I looked at her like this;

              Yup. All the owners must have had other cars to keep the mileage so low...unless it was parked for several years. Good to see the cars are still thriving.

                I kinda figured thats where that Lachsilber M3 would end up.
                I'm rarely right on that front but $60K was the number I had in my head when I saw it post.

                It is a very nice car.
                Many things about it I liked. The underside was in great condition. The pinch seams were like new.

                The people who were scared of the repaint are weenies.
                A proper windows out, parts off, repaint is nothing to be scared of.
                Think of someone like Mario Langsten doing it,,, I'd rather have a top end, windows out repaint than 30 year old paint thats been rubbed on for 30 years unless the thing has lived an absolutely charmed life in a bubble.

                My street car is lower miles than that one and my brothers is is about the same miles.
                What I turned into my race car back in 1997 only has 8X K on it now.

                  My buddy bought that car. If you look in the user name thread I have a pic of his E30 M3 parked next to my sons 318is.

                  He purchased that M3 in 2012 for 13K. Yes, $13,000, we fought over that car.

                  Since he was first in line he got it. I felt it was my duty as a good friend to drive him up and get it in Atlanta.

                  I got to drive the S14 swapped 318is and I will admit, before driving it, I was not really understanding the whole S14 craze, give me another 100 HP and some torque please.... then I drove that car, I get it now. The engine is so smooth and revs so nice, it reminded me of a rotary, butter smooth and winds up really fast.

                  Just before I drove it.



                  M3 in background.


                  Them rims.... oh and my JCW in the background. :D (We both have a severe car problem, and we may or may not have a whiskey and beer problem)



                  He basically bought a S14 in a nice shiny box (car) go look what S14's are going for he paid just a tad more for an entire car and he LOVES that car.

                      Too much. The E30 market has been on the upward march but that doesn't mean that a nice example of every variant will crack $20,000 despite what a lot of people seem to think. People were raving in the comments for that auction talking about it going over $20,000 and that's ridiculous, more desirable E30s crack that with low miles but the price is what the market will bear. The market for a 4 cylinder convertible is much smaller than the market for a 325is or 318is or even a 325iC.

                                Just an update that the beautiful 318i convertible sold to the highest bidder @Sdgilb here in Miami. It was love at first sight. @Bradnic was right on the money which I feel was well bought. Thanks for all your interest and comments. I have more very special cars soon to be offered on BAT! Cheers, Scott
