      ^Fiberglass is light! You'll need that weight loss to make up for how heavy your heart will be having seen that done to an E30.

        Too be honest, it's probably a couple grand in fixes and it could look a million times better.

        I'd also consider either having it wrapped or repainted in a different color. Maybe the original black or silver..etc.

          Unless it's simply grafted over the metal bodywork like I have seen so many times.

            My buddy sold his black e30 s54 m3 to the person who is selling the euro m3, so I recognized the car immediately.

            I puked all over again, lol. It doesn't look easily reversible as far as I can tell.

              I think if it sold in the 25-35 range it still wouldnt be a terrible buy. Yes you cannot reverse it all, but OEM tails, grilles would take a lot of the edge off.

                Funny how he’s claiming it’s so much better than regular M3, but no driving video posted.

                    No idea.

                    Beautiful car and seems like good interior work but I'd guess based on the mileage questions and lack of any meaningful comment on the engine condition in the ad that it does not pull like an S14 should and probably needs a $20k rebuild.

                        i know huh? Pretty close. Whenever I see a car that's hardly ever driven (1000 miles in 6 years) and a lot of reupholstery, new paint, new wheels, etc. I can't help but wonder what it looked like before that it needed all that custom work done. New "leather" may be an attribute to some, perhaps most but to me that job looks terrible. The piping is incorrect and the leather is too flat or padded but other than that it looks like a nice car with some new parts. Cluster surround looks like it was replaced. They probably flip flopped between clusters for testing purposes or whatever and happen to smog the car with different clusters not realizing it would flag for mileage inconsistency. It should be interesting to see where this ends up.

                          I really like it. Sure it deviates but that's part of the charm. I had speakers on the floor exactly like that on a 73 bug once. It really cuts off some of the real estate with your feet but you got use to it. Curious also where this lands.

                            Not an e30 but a hell of a track car.
