        Man that car is mint. Has anyone seen the records proving the mileage?

          yeah I just got priced out with the $20k bid.. kinda miffed. I'm still waiting for answers to my current questions. I may reconsider.

          then again, I kept telling myself the miles are too low to really enjoy the car.

          still looking for a low mile calypso 5 speed vert, preferably a 91 diving board car so I can just re-execute my euro conversion and mtech1 on it. Or... I can just put substantially less in additional $$ into my existing car and just reset the damn odo :-)

          really couldn't give a damn less what the 'value' is.

          @cory58 seller bought the car in 2016. claims to have winter storage records going way back that show current mileage every year.

            There was a 10.2 compression as well. If it has the factory installed cat, it's the 9.0:1 motor. Ask him for the engine #'s stamped into the ID plate. It's in the engine compartment behind the PS headlight.

                I did see the comment about storage records but didn't catch the part about showing mileage.


                I agree - not only would I be scared to drive it, but I would be scared to park it in my working garage. It really should be in a collector's garage where tools, ladders, kids, lawnmowers, etc. can't accidentally damage it.


                As much as I believe Bimmers should be driven, I hope someone buys this one and parks it.

                  How much do you drive your convertible?
                  I'm lucky if we put 1k miles a year on ours.

                    Spot on. My current cars 5 new garage dents and scratches are living proof.

                      17k miles in 7 years... so I guess it would still be a 32k mike car in 2025 haha. Probably less because I’d trailer it to out of town events fo sho. Was planning to mothball the interior and disconnect the top mechanism lol.. my current verts interior is better anyway

                        Your current vert interior is insane.


                        That is where I was going with that. If you use it as a summer car it will remain low mileage.

                          In the end the collector premium and potential garage damage risk just isn’t worth it. My current car when done will be exactly what the wife and I want. It looks great, drives great and as long as I pay Hagerty it’s hopefully insured for what it would take to replicate it should the unthinkable ever happen

                          I still want a lower mile calypso db car though :-). It just needs to have a smaller collector premium than this one.

                          If the BaT car wasn’t calypsorot with factory LSD and heated seats I wouldn’t have bid on it. I’m better off taking the collector premium and building out the stroker, re-doing the synchros and do the glass out repaint. It’s unlikely I’d ever get back what I put into it due to mileage, but I honestly could not give a damn less

                              6800 for a 318is almost seems reasonable.

                                lol I feel ya!!The emotional tug is strong with this one. I recently overpaid for an iX based on market value but underpaid based on the non-rational "got to have it" fun factor.
