    But this 325 swapped car looks immaculate. Both interior and exterior wise. The last swapped e30 looked more like a HPDE / track car... either way, will be interesting to see what this car goes for..

    And also the red s50 swapped car on ebay...as that one looks super clean as well

      Im not disagreeing with you, the further you deviate from stock, the smaller the group is who wants the car.

      I feel bad for gluckich and his M50 4 door, because I think stock basketweaves wouldve helped the sale, though $7500 still isnt bad for a basic M50 swapped car. Silly little things make a big difference. Ive been tempted to get some euroeaves for mine, but overall Im not spending anymore money to try and get it back.

        Yeah. It's crazy how a stock 318is can pull in almost as much money as a 24v swapped e30... i completely understand what everyone's been telling me now.

              I think the owner is on this forum. I seem to remember him complaining about the CEP m tech side skirts which is why he went with the iS ones instead. Surprised to see him sell so soon.

                      But everyone thinks the 318is is the baby M3 where the 325i is just a 325i...

                      Seller probably figured the sub100k car should fetch a lot more. It should've sold IMO

                        64k 318is should fetch more than $11,750

                            At least not today.

                            Seller says $20k. I think that is a reach.

                            If it were mine I would take $15k.

                              Lets see how this one does... Ive been waiting for something like this
                              That appears to be a really nice car.
                              I like that a lot.
                              Slick and subtle. I'd love to see some more detailed engine compartment photos, but it looks like its been really well done.

                              So many swap cars seem like after the engine was physically bolted in,,, the wiring and engine bay neatness was an afterthought.
                              I always get the impression some guys just connect it where it lays and get it running, close the hood quick figuring I'll get back to that later after I do my first WOT run.

                              The ones where guys take the time and care to do beautiful wiring and clean installs are the ones I like a lot.

                                Lol. Right after that 6X,XXX mi 318is doesn't sell, a 3X,XXX mi 318is pops up... although this particular 318is is much more photogenic and no reserve!
