      Bring a Trailer Auctions, E30 edition

      I’m not seeing anything that is irreversible (though I’m on my crappy iPhone) just a lot of cheap upgrades. All of which are easily reversed, and the red interior I dig.

      Geez seriously, the hesitation? I stopped just short of saying “you know, basic mechanic stuff you should be able to diagnose if you’ve EVER worked on cars.” But we all know they are now the kind of buyers that pay someone to change wiper blades.

          Nice location for photos though. That is A LOT of money spent in those receipts.

                The audience for that wide-body really has a boner for that car..

                  I test drove that car and seriously considered buying it, but was not looking for a Vert. Slightly more than I wanted to spend also. The car runs really really smoothly.

                    I didn't look at those receipts on my first pass.


                    $37,125 spent on refurbing the 'vert!!

                      The shop price is $125 an hour. So it adds up quick gents.

                        That was in 2013 dollars. Yikes.

                          25K and people are commenting that the winner "stole" it at that price...

                          I'm doing it wrong I guess.

                            Im betting the guys on the other end of those posts own at least a few flat brims and an assortment of stance scene stickers waiting.

                              Some guy's even bagging the seller on there for not getting more for the car due to not having the number of photos and videos of the car to meet his expectations, claiming he'd have paid $50k for it - I'd have thought 50 photos of the car is enough ;)

                              In the past we used to buy cars based on a grainy black and white picture and two line description in the local news paper!

                              The insta crowd are hard to please I guess, but at $50k I think I'd be picking up a demonstrator M2 Competition with a service package and extended warranty personally.

                                ...meanwhile $5300 for that vert is not a bad deal. It'd probably be less than $500 to make it more my style (revert some of the "custom" stuff to stock or euro and fix a few things). And I'm sure it'd turn heads everywhere it went with the black on red combo.
