      Except points deducted for being presented with non-stock wheels. Remember BAT audience can’t change their own wheels, it’ll require purchasing expensive tires (for C&C cred), scheduling and paying for them to be “professionally” mounted (no America’s Tire for these chaps), and then filled with Nitrogen and mounted with only spec wheel bolts.

      So add another 5k to the final price for the complete rim job to the winner.

              yeah that change in culture on the site is strange to me, because i used to browse it just for the interesting "under $20k" category.

              it was more fun when it was about cars that you actually had to bring a trailer for. or like my buying experience- get worryingly high on the coolant gauge driving it home through the grapevine from LA to bakersfield.

                Agree. That section is still there on the site, but you have to dig for it any more, and it’s not nearly as active as it used to be.

                  Wow - seeing the stock ride height there makes me realise how dramatically most of our e30s on here are lowered!

                  Even my car is quite low vs. that one (and it's just on Eibach front springs, and stock m-tech rears). Even that mild setup is much lower than stock.

                      I'm guessing less than new Civic money.


                      I would love to buy that and daily it.

                          I'd love to see the comments if I put my e30 up for auction. The z3 rack and 5 speed swap would probably be enough to make them run for the hills in terror.

                            What a beauty. The ride height is funny though, must be a wierd angle. Almost looks like there’s no engine in it.
