    Comment


      The comments above seem spot on.

      I lurked and lurked there for 9 months or so, finally buying a 318is recently. If the comments are used and placed in context they can be helpful as there are some knowledgeable folks there. I probably over-paid a bit relative to the car's value on this site, but I don't feel too badly about it.

      I am an 80 series LandCruiser enthusiast as well, and the comments on forums for them that are analogous to this one (IH8Mud) are quite similar to those here. As an example, a 1994 is being dealt with rather harshly for what I suspect is superficial rust. I bet it is similar for most model-specific enthusiast sites.

      Suppose it is all about using all the information sources you can find. :)

        As an example, here’s a couple typical bat listings from pre-auction days:

        https://bringatrailer.com/2014/11/13...83-b9-project/

        https://bringatrailer.com/2008/05/05...bmw-alpina-b6/

        https://bringatrailer.com/2009/05/12...985-alpina-b6/

        They used to have the “guess what this is” section, and under 2k project section. They still have much of that but it’s not highlighted and usually cut off in the daily emails. To find the non auction postings you have to dig deep any more.

            I am familiar with the seller of that new M3 up. He is pretty solid and goes through the cars throughly before he puts them up for sale.

              OMG those wheels.

              That's going to cost ya.

              On a serious note - I always did have a thing for red heads.

                    those are functional wheels on a functional car. It is a modified M3 being sold by 1 of 4 dealers that seems to do no wrong, so I think it will be fine. It was in the mid 30s last I checked...

                      I think those are OZ superleggera's which were made popular by Tire Rack 15+ years ago. It's at $36K already, with 6 days left? Pretty strong out of the gate.

                        Predictable, the top comment is about the wheels. I don't mind them, between the wheels and tires and the other mods that car looks to have been modified for enjoyment instead of kept original so the resale value is higher and the next owner can autofellate at car shows over his all original nostalgia memento. I'm more interested in the Saratoga behind that M3 though. Not only more fun but a better power to weight ratio as well :nice:

                          Maybe I'm just so used to seeing those kind of wheels on E30's at the track, that they don't really bother me as much. I will say that dealer does bring some interesting cars to the block, and I have talked with him some outside of BAT. He's an enthusiast/car guy who does this on the side. There was one iX touring he had a while back I really liked..

                            Glen Shelly has some amazing cars for sale. Always good stuff.

                            I have to say I’ve never been a fan of any OZ wheels. Maybe they’re too rally for me. Who knows.

                                Ok I will play, under 23k. Not sure how bold a prediction that is since it is only 18k with 90 minutes left.
