    Says who? That's not always the case Adam. What if say, you had a convertible and some thieves tried to break into it by slashing your top. Insurance would rather total out your car rather than pay for it to get re upholstered even though its mechanically sound. :P

      Stats:
      207k miles
      steel wheels w/new tires
      4dr 5 speed, color is DiamondShart
      Theft recovery, branded title
      Pass. fender crunched in, looks like an easy replacement.
      Clearcoat has issues

      Overall it's a fairly clean car, the interior is good except for the driver's seat. Title issues suck but if they have all the paperwork for it I think it should be ok. What would you guys pay for such a car?
      Idk man. I bought mine from the original owner with 118k on the clock and a clean title for $1950 and all it needed immediately was a battery. I'd say $1000 max depending on other factors. edit: you bought it! lol

        If you want to over pay for a branded title car, that's all you homie.

            i wont pay much either for a branded title one most insurance companies wont insure one two they are worth shit if something does happen to them after you have done all upgrades and three you just never know how fucked up the repair was/is not worth the risk in my opinion to overpay for a car that is essential worthless(no disrepect to e30s intended)

                hey is there anyone local to burien/seattle that has a late model that i can borrow a few parts from for like 30 minutes. im trying to trouble shoot why my car won't start. i want to try a AFM and crank sensor.

                i can smell fuel and now that the car is covered with frost it won't start at all compared to a few days ago when it was warmer and it would start and run for a little while.

                    good idea, i will go slip it off and take a peak. its just funny since the car has been starting when its cold then stalling and not restarting after about 4 minutes of running.

                      Well I would be smart enough to know what I would getting myself into. I would gladly pay for a branded title e30 if the reason was stupid. Plus to the right crowd they are still worth their true value. And! If you were just planning on keeping it, who the fuck cares! 8)

                        Does anyone know what the original tire would be for an 89 325is? I have a spare in my trunk that gives me a hunch that it very well could be original rubber.

                            I think he means brand/model of tire - not size. I want to say like a p600 pirelli was standard fair back-in-the-day. Ask in the general tech forum. I bet someone knows. (car and driver? Road and track? The old articles might have it listed - but I bet they didn't use just one brand of tire)

                                Duhrr, yeah. Sorry. Just checked my spare, Goodyear Invicta date code looks like '00, definitely not original. Check the date code.
