      Lots of records, 200k+ miles and Diamond Schwarz... Its clean though, so lets see if it breaks 40k. The last few black M3s didnt seem to get there

      Also, will the Harge H35 get any more bids??? hahah

          Looks like it's a flip. The original owner must not wrench at all with all those invoices lol. It's very complete and super clean for having done 200K miles. No mention of engine rebuild though so it should be interesting to see how a super clean high mileage driver does.
          As for the Hartge...I think there will be a few more bids...maybe? Maybe that 20k bid really did scare off the competition. I didn't notice that the rear tail panel was damaged as well as the front bumper/spoiler. Makes you wonder what else the car is hiding. We are down to the final hour and that auction is quiet. I expected more Q and A.

            Far from it. With nice examples with reasonable (not anomalously low) mileage going for over 10k, I'd say the E30 is solidly within the transition phase from old enthusiast's car to collector's car. With prices like they are and trending slowly upward, those seeking a bang-for-the-buck fun car best look elsewhere. Those looking for a track car project should avoid altogether at this point unless they find a really cheap one with a trashed interior and straight shell, an E36 or even E46 is a better starting point. They aren't old enough for rust to be the rule like it is with the E30 and the chassis is more capable from the outset.

              BAT going HAM today with an e30 M3, e46 M3 Competition Package, S52 M Coupe with low mileage, 2002tii (m20 swapped), and an e36 M3 4/5.

              I’d wager a bet they go in price in the order I listed above. What does r3v think?

                    Salvage title. Interesting to see where it goes, and how or if that deters anyone.

                      That's what I'm interested in. I would assume that a salvage title affects value, but it might be to the age where it doesn't matter. Also interesting is how a salvage title affects a heavily modified car. Should be good.

                        Dunno,.

                        It was salvage in 98 which mean the damage wasn't a fender bender either. I say it will hurt the sale for sure. Seems well sorted and should break $16k without issues. Could breaking $25k because of the S50 if they right two buyers start bidding. Brilliantrot looks stunning.

                        Always wonder why someone would spend that much money on a salvage car. You would think, he would have started with a clean platform. Between the stigma and trust issues (you never know how that car was put together), its just not worth the hassles.

                        That being said, someone might walk a walk with a good tribute car for sure. Re-do the interior a bit and that's one stunning car. The last tribute sold for $18k with an M20 and yeah at the time the title was suspect. At the end of that auction, that title was sorted from washed to clean if I remember correctly.

                          I think it will all come down to who wants a cheap E30 M3 convertible tribute. The S50 swap certainly helps. This car appears to check a few boxes...M3 conversion, S50 swap, new paint, etc. Many E30's that people drool over are or have been salvage cars. Owners use the accident as a catalyst for restoration.

                              If it was the euro S50, then yah, I could see big numbers. But being the US “S50”, it seems like it may not put up the numbers it could.

                              Again, it’ll be interesting to see what happens.

                                An s50 vert with 5-lug would be around $11k. My guess is the m3 bodywork brings it to ~$14.
