        2020 List: 135 E30s sold (Up ~20 cars / 15%)

        Average of E30s, not including M3s $16,031

        Average price, by model:

        M3 (32) = $62,940
        318is (5) = $13,600
        325is (12) = $18,070
        325i (10) = $14,626
        318/ 325e (11) = $10,241
        Convertible (34) = $13,811
        Touring (4) = $15,125
        Swapped (16)= $28,965
        iX (7) = $13,811
        Other (4) = $30,850



        Biggest change was a nearly $20k (~50%) bump on M3s, though that may not be the median price and a few outliers raised the tide overall. Same with the average price on the cars that are not M3s. However, the IX and basic 325i/325e/318 (M10) cars saw a realistic bump. Nearly every car saw an increase of ~15%.

        Summary: As you can see, no E30s average is under $10k now... Food for thought. Of course these arent the basic 325e auto sedans, these are the nitpicky BaT selected cars, so your sh!tbox E30 isnt worth $15k all of a sudden

              Almost 12k for a 4 door M10 318. What a time to be alive. That touring is beautiful, but god the M40 is such a wretched engine.

                M40>M10 any day, if only for fuel economy.

                  Imma respectfully disagree. M10 has more character, a timing chain & only a marginal fuel economy & power deficit compared to the M40. I still think the guy who dropped 12 g’s on the M10 318 is on crack tho.

                    I get where you are coming from, I loved the M10 in my 2002, but when I drove it like a normal person it was boring. The M40 is boring, but in my experience it's reliable, capable, inoffensive, and highly efficient in an E30, netting over 30mpg with no trouble. But maybe it's all down to gearing, since M40 cars come with "cheater" gears.

                            The Hartge is awesome! Note for the M30 guys - it runs a clutch fan. No doubt NLA, but the clutch and fan look much more compact than other options. Would be interesting to know if that was a bespoke Hartge part, or cobbled together from somewhere.

                              Hartge did love to do little changes like that. On my H5S the distributor and AFM were both different from stock parts, and swapping the AFM with an otherwise correct BMW unit didn't work really well.
