    Glad you're ok and you didnt get screwed
    Yes, it was salvageable. I've been experimenting trying to make the motor mount arms for the 02 :twisted:

      I think someone already does if you want to save yourself the hassle. I know my buddy Paolo (kid325e on r3v) bought some for his 2.7i that he is swapping into his 76 2002. Im sure there is more info on the FAQ

        I found the seller, it's just a decent chunk of change that I'd like to spend elsewhere. I might end up buying them pre-made though to save myself some time.

            Thanks man, it was definitely a journey from beginning to end. I'm just glad that I was satisfied with the end result before it got smashed. Hopefully I'll be able to revive this '02 as well as I did the e30 ;)

              Sorry to hear this. I'm glad you made it through the battle with insurance, hopefully they didn't leave you feeling too disappointed. I too lost my E30 to a freak road debris incident, and I too began a 2002 project after the situation settled. I still think about the E30 that was taken from me, but building the 2002 helped immensely with the grieving process. I wish you the best on moving forward, and also with your new project.

                I wasn't left too disappointed, but you really can't get back what you put into the car. The hours were taken, and the money they gave me for the car really couldn't compensate me for those. Building the 2002 is frustrating sometimes, but I'm enjoying being able to tear into a new vehicle. Thanks man :-)

                  I have read your thread before a while back, and I follow you on instagram, but I just re-read the whole thing... Wow the E30 kicked ass, I still need to #BurnoutForBelina and I definitely will after reading this! Actually I was the one to message you about the 2002 parts on IG! But this car was absolutely awesome and it inspires me as a college kid to get working on my E30 again!!!! I'll be closely watching the 2002 build!
