      That M3 is a really good looking example, the MTech Cab just needs some TLC and a trans swap. Looking like my garage on there LOL

        Thanks for your help yesterday John! Car was definitely as advertised. Will bring her back for the other work we discussed.
        cory58 I've wanted to find an E30 for my mom for some time. I just couldn't pass this one up - exactly what she's always wanted.
        I BUY/SELL REFURBISHED CM5907s & CM5908s

        HOWTOs:
        DB vert plastic bumpers
        OEM Keys
        MTech1 docs

        88 ix Lach/Card
        91 ic Calypso 3.1
        86 Cosmo 2.7

        OEM+ or bust!

          That's good to hear. I've seen a few BAT bought E30's come through my buddies shop post auction - and most winners were mostly happy with the car - but there was a few nitpicks about condition that weren't disclosed. But again, any time you are buying sight unseen, you're always opening yourself up to some risk.

            there were indeed some nits. the dealer was fair and thorough though. we came to an equitable agreement, and they got some good tips on things they should absolutely be proactive about when prepping and selling E30s.

            btw, they have a very low mile 93 5 speed brillantrot / natur vert coming. that's a $19k+ car my guess.

I just laid in to him a bit about his laziness. Just do the damn belt, as a shop, other than labor, it cost maybe a couple hundred in parts/supplies. If it was my shop and my reputation, I'd be doing that sh*t before listing - which I have done on any car I have sold/flipped. Just sounds scummy.

                  Its really annoying when a timing belt doesnt get done, especially if you claim to be a shop. Of course that could just be a shop that buys cars at auctions and sells them later for a profit while doing absolutely nothing... sounds like this is the case

                            Wow! That thing is sweet!

                            I don't recall seeing a nice S54 swapped car sell. What are you thinking is a realistic price?

                            We've seen nice S52 swapped cars sell in the low $20k's. Another $5-10k for this?

                              Last 24 hrs on the s54. I sure hope it has at least another 10k to climb.
