    I was typing the same thing. $100-150 makes a world of difference!

      Ha, when I got my cirrusblau ‘89 last year the first thing I had to do is order a $50 lower lip from pelican.

      Also, why in the world would you show cirrusblau using pictures taken at dusk? Sunlight is what makes the color so pleasant imho.

        Nice

        I really liked that black m3 swap car. Color paint, authentic m3 body and suspension parts, clean title, working AC, and T-stars alone added the right amount features for my personal taste to make 30k a great bargain even if you needed to tinker with it down the road.

          I can't believe the s50 car has peaked at $12k, I really expected above $15k...

            Well, there's still a few hours left. I figure it probably won't start going for another couple hours. I've already talked to about five people who plan to bid. Gonna be a nail biter.

                Best part of that 325i listing:

                "I didnt bother with rebuilding the front seats because I wanted to keep the car as original as possible"

                so ignore the springs, strut bad and Pioneer head unit.

                It's more like - "I did the least amount of work possible to get it ready to sell.."

                        Good for you Austin, I think that’s a great price for your car. Seriously, $23,750 is all the money in my opinion and we all know what it takes to make an e30 thst nice and clean.

                        I hope you will share how the post sale correspondence and transaction goes. I know all buyers are different but it would be great to hear some perspective from sellers.

                        Congrats again, beautiful car!

                          $23,750. Less than I had hoped, but it was well bought by its new owner, and it met reserve, so that is all that matters. Weird that I will no longer own this car in a few short days.

                            Agree, well bought by it's new owner.
                            Wish I had been in a position to buy.
                            Hopefully it is going to a good home.


                            Out of curiosity, do you perform swaps professionally?

                                I agree, the new owner got a killer deal, IMHO. Just spent a long time talking with him and he's a swell guy. Seems like it will be going to a great home.

                                I do any and all things E30 related - PM me if you have work you need done. I love doing 24v conversions!!!

                                Now that it's done, $20k. I would have been sad if it had only hit $20k, but we got a bit north of that, so I'm good with it.

                                The new owner wants the car raised up a bit (understandably so), the window tint removed and possibly the air conditioning installed. I'll be doing all that before he picks it up in a couple weeks.
