        Also, I see Brad pointed out the rust, I got a feeling it’s worse then it looks.
        I don't believe the seats are original to the car. from looking at the bolsters it appears that the driver seat is actually a pass seat swapped over.

        and yeah guarantee you there are rust issues to deal with.

          I think he usually tries to sell them the "easy" way prior to dealing with BaT. Im sure it will end up there soon enough if it doesnt sell

            I wish BAT would limit how many cars a dealer can list in a year. Probably would filter out some of the repetitive auctions of the same types of cars over and over again. But money’s all that monies.

                There are situations where screw on fender flares look decent, but this isn't one of them. Everything else about that car is so nice, then it has screwed on flares which look like a total afterthought on an otherwise very clean and well sorted car.

                  Im glad someone else said it first.
                  I hate to always be the get off my lawn guy.
                  Those flairs totally ruin an otherwise pretty sanitary project (except the interior looks pretty beat).
                  WTF were they thinking with those flairs...

                    I hate bolt on fender flares. They look like complete dog shit.

                    Neat car, otherwise. I also am a proud orientblau/tan e46 touring owner. The color combination is growing on me.

                      Looked like a clean car until the door panels popped up. Why do people do stuff like that

                        Why don’t you like the door panels?

                          Given that you can get a set of door panels for $100 it probably would have been wise to swap em. Hopefully it doesn’t hurt the value too much. I love red e30s.

                            I really thought people would have liked them since they were a slap together item but a legit product made specially for an E30. See link below. I see the safest bet is leave the car as factory as possible.

                              That million dollar Merc auction turned a bit ugly after the RNM. A lot of conspiracy theory about how BAT allowed such a high reserve and how it may have just been done for the clicks..

                                When I saw the 1.1M bid, which repainted a nearly $200k bump over the previous last bid I knew it was done with bidding and it should’ve sold. I wonder if I can go back and see the post RNM chaos
