    E30 M3s seem to be calming down. Maybe people realized you can get an air-cooled Porsche for $40k.

      I think the only Aircooled Porsche you can get in that price range is a 80s SC and a well used one. The M3 has a legit history behind it that the regular SC never will.

      Did anyone else notice the finned diff?

        Many people have done the M coupe diff cover mod over the years, especially on E30 M3's.

          It hasn't even been listed a day and is already at $60K
          ..and yet, no pics of the headliner. It is an E34 after all..

          but yes, that thing is dead sexy.

                  Hey kids, wanna blend in at the next E30 Picnic or M-car meet, have I got a car for you.. It's a RED M3!!

                  I'm just kidding obviously, if I had the opportunity to pick one up for reasonable money, I would.

                    I called it! Once the white E30 was done and sold, I predicted there would be another E30 M3 in 3....2....1.... and then BOOM Red E30 M3

                      I cannot believe the bids on the "Elektra" edition. Even given how rare it is, I didn't think it would pull that sort of interest.

                          Well, I guess the BS claims are going to start piling up in the comment section (how rare Cirrusblau is..) and every POS 325i on CL is going to add a grand to the price.

                            Cirrusblau is rare compared to the more standard colors.
