    Changing from GoDaddy to Amazon AWS for DNS and Hosting, so images may be a couple days to come back. Sorry if anyone is trying to reference this right now. Should be back in 2-3 days. I plan on hosting the files so that others can follow along even though I am gone.

    So I hope this thread helps others build and code their S54 swaps, I doubt I will check R3V much if at all anymore, but I will try to keep the hosting for the pictures up so that others can do the same. Good luck R3V and I hope to catch glimpses of even better builds!

    So about a week before the car sold I picked this up so that I have a cheap vehicle that I can abuse for camping with my wife, a 2002 SR5 4x4 4Runner 198K miles:

    Posting a car on BaT is an interesting experience. I recently had an E36 M3 listed which did not meet reserve. Lots of positive comments posted but some of the folks who used the "contact seller" button were just lunatics bordering on aggressive, especially as the auction was nearing the end.

    You can't beat the exposure BaT provides but the behind the scenes actions of "potential bidders" was worse than replies to a Craigslist ad. I'm undecided if I would list another car with BaT. The M3 did sell after the auction - above reserve to the first person who looked at it in person.

    Glad everything worked out for you.

    I hear you, its amazing that people want to tell you all the time how to price your car. I just sold my E38 really sad about it, I put it up fairly high due to the condition and all the work that was done, I had 3 people on that board tell me I was nuts and I should put it up for half that, let them know when I drop my price. I did get a few defenders though. The car sold slightly below asking in less than a week.

    What do you mean by aggressive BaT people? Were the purists grabbing pitchforks and trying to find where you live? XD

    Gah! Sorry Im terrible at keeping the thread updated... Ive been starting to take side jobs to ultimately open a shop in the near future. The car is running very well and is a riot as im sure you are familiar! I agree with the fact that its almost too much for casual street use, cant wait to get to the track but still getting familiar with the car. Just passed 1000 miles last weekend on the rebuild!

    Well for the first time I heard what my car sounds like from the exterior with my own ears instead of a video, as it drove away with the new owner. It took me 3 tries to get home as I contemplated what this means for my life now.

    So is it all good now?

    Thanks for your contributions to the E30 community! I enjoyed following this build thread.

    Thanks guys! Definitely bittersweet, but I am unable to drive the car to it's limits because the events around here have disappeared, then I don't have much desire for a sporty car. This car feels best at the limit, feeling like your on frosted concrete with flats on.

    For anyone else, I am always willing to try to help with coding, or explain more in detail should I be able to provide it, but as I will no longer own an E30, I am sure I will fade from the forums. Now off to the 3rd Gen 4runner forums where I don't care about having a dirty, scratched vehicle.
