    As much as I hate to let the E30 go, it isn't how I roll so I'll take my lumps and move on.

    Certainly won't be listing anymore cars on BaT anytime soon however, and I know a ton of cars guys up here all got scared away soon as they saw/heard how mine fared.

    The guys I was working with at BaT were adamant that it'll surpass reserve but obviously they really only care about a sale, selling the car below market doesn't matter to them so long as they'll get their buyers' fee.

    Soup - you are an honorable person. The world would be a better place if everyone owned up to their mistakes instead of trying to avoid the consequences. Karma!

      Ah yes, besides the reserve, I did get completely hosed on how many E30s were listed.

      I asked a few times before listing whether they would stagger listings for similar cars and was told yes, yes they will for mine. Mine went up immediately and as you all saw, two other 325is' came up the next day. They told me that the other two were for different demographics - one being a caged swapped track car, while the other was a lot rougher example than mine (even though it was no reserve).

      Still fuming about that.

              Certainly promising news for me. I didn't think it'd break 10K to be honest.

                Says the work was done around the year 2000, E30 M3's weren't very coveted, and certainly not in stock form back then.

                That dyno curve looks amazing.

                  Is that wheel horse power or crank? That motor must sound insane.

                    Thats a very well built E30M3 race car.
                    Its got all the right stuff.
                    I hope he set the reserve high. Race cars do terrible on BAT. Always. Terrible.

                        That car really needs a set of Ronal Turbos and a proper Euro conversion. Love it.

                          Me personally I think thats a neat "period correct" hot rod build,,, but I have to ask a rhetorical question...
                          I would never write this in the guys auction comments,,, why would someone go through all the detail that was done in this car build and "not" bead blast, or powder coat, or paint,,, or do something with the aluminum valve cover and intake? It makes an otherwise lovely looking build look like the engine came straight from a junkyard. I'll say same with the mild steel exhaust job. The car is really well done, but why ditch on those details.

                            that little revving at the end of the video certainly does
