    Car was posted for $40k obo if remember correctly on S14,net. At the end seller wanted a good home. Car was a work of art and a labor of love. I really need to start saving money.

      Alright, this is nuts. How is a similarly equipped 325i with half the miles worth less than that 318i that just sold for $7,900? Engine bay detailing not good enough? Cloth comfort seats somehow less desirable than vinyl comfort seats? Seller's lack of insight on AC service? Repaint turning off the collectors? Both cars similarly clean outside, the 325i was stated to have "zero rust" vs the 318i with stated battery box rust.

        I agree, the 325i was the nicer car, and I was bidding on it. The car was accurately presented as I had it in inspected at a shop in Virginia. I am second guessing not going beyond my final bid attempt of $7,400. By not winning the auction though, I am still sleeping in my house as opposed to my wife getting me a hammock to sleep in the garage with the cars.

            Yeah, the buyer and I are both happy. He's getting a great deal for what it would take to build one of these, and I had no clue what it was really worth so it works for both of us. I never intended to "make back" anything on this build so it works out. Hopefully the rest of the transaction goes smoothly, I'll keep the updates coming in my build thread.

              After a build like that nice to get someone who appreciates it.

                        I want the styling of the car but would change the engine. So I'm better off building a clone... not like I have the cash to buy it anyways haha.

                          I don't get it. Why all the fawning over that - it sounds terrible on the engine stand - and even once warmed up and running it still sounds like a VW bug, rattling to death. Porsche guys are just a giant circle jerk of air cooled weirdness..

                                M20B20 is the worst E30 engine, not even the M40B16 is worse, at least it doesn't try to pretend that it's a fastish car. Also, that price is bogus this early on.
