    i still don't get why this one went so cheap compared to others. Yes maybe it's not perfectly presented, but the interior alone is more desirable than the standard e30 karoseats and Mtech1 steeringwheel. Why then just under 40k, i'd bet it would go around 50
    My guess would be the color (car and wheels) or quality of respray, missing bumper caps might make people wonder about how thorough of a restoration it underwent and non BMW aficionado's may not like or "get" the M tech interior. The pictures weren't great either.

    Just saying, new user who had signed up this month, and then goes way high on the value. Seen it happen a lot, and yet BAT still won't change their policy.

    I'm not saying I don't appreciate the value bump since it only benefits my collection, but I also hate seeing the sellers getting screwed by flaky bidders and BAT's attitude.
    Hard to say these days. There are people with money looking to buy in. The car should be in as new condition so $30k while strong for any non M3 isn't completely out of the ballpark. Considering EAG sells clean 20-50k mile 318iS and 325iS's for low - mid 20's...this one looks to be right in line. Obviously, that's not where my money would go but to each his own.

        I always thought e30 m3 had the dogleg gearbox, but i've seen a few on BAT now that have the standard pattern on the shifter. So am i wrong to assume all e30 m3 have dogleg gearboxes?

          US M3's have standard gearboxes.

                That car needs a lot of work. Just looking at the gap mismatch on the hood and fender would scare me from bidding top dollar for it, something seems off with the body. And there is a lot of little things that need addressing. The seller blows off the rust in the rear wheel well like it's NBD, but that's major surgery on these things...

                ..and in the end, it's a Baur, which is still a very divisive model in the E30 world - you either really love them, or want no part of them.

                I don't expect it break 10K in a normal environment. But then again.. BAT is often full of hype bidding.

                          Going to be interesting to see how it does on BAT...race prepped cars haven't been known to do well on there.

                          I also like how bidding went from $3k straight to $19k...someone is a little trigger happy!

                            300rwhp from NA stroked M52 doesn't add up but perhaps I am missing something.
