    Been looking, for what seems like forever, for a BMW, but everything is priced to the moon or is an absolutely dumpster fire of a car.

    Owned a MT 2.0T A4 avant and really didn't enjoy the car. Test drove a couple of V70Rs that i wanted to like so badly, but too many little things I disliked... Stuck with trying to find a BMW for now.
    do you no longer own an S50 powered early sedan?

    E34 wagon
    yeah, I think I missed the last one in the state about 5 years ago. Then one showed up in the local junkyard last winter...

    So I settled for an E39 wagon. Even those are getting harder to find at 'project' prices. I'm not in love with the steering ratio,
    but as a cruiser, it does all right.

    I was tempted to get a 4door 324D (smog exempt in California) before I bought my Alfa. It looked like it had some rust... so instead of buying that I bought a rusty Alfa Romeo lol
    Sounds like sound logic

    In other news, my ZHP is up for sale and I got some nibbles. Gonna make a couple pile-o-money happen soon and finally investing into a certain sad delphin gray savings account that's been long neglected.

    Anyone got a 'mild' project car they are wanting to part company with?

    Seems like a long shot, but I seem incapable of finding a car on my own. And as many threads have been pointing out recently, it feels like all the forums are dying out.

    I'm looking for an E30 non-vert, E34 wagon, or possibly an E39 (sedan or wagon). I'd prefer the 6cylinder and MT in all cases, but will entertain AT and 8cylinder cars.

    How's SoCal handsome?
    F-FB... hopefully more adults come to their senses... I dont think the kids use it... or do they? thought it was just for boomers and fake news now...

    anyways, you need to take a trip down here for the SoCal Vintage BMW show. Amazing BMW, warm weather and then the Best of France and Italy car show the next day.

    It has a heated steering wheel.

    It was love at first grope.

    I sit in the barn, warming my hands, and I haven't got the cams back in.

    It also has the non- computer HVAC, which is... odd. Manual seats, but heated.

    I love it. I should fix it so I can get it out of the damned barn and get
    back to work on other things. Like an M54B30E30.

    What a messed up couple of years it's been.

    I haven't done shit with an E30 in far too long.
    DID get an E39 wagon, which is sitting in the barn
    with the head off.

    I picked up an e39 wagon too. And then promptly sold it. Really nice cars, just not my thing.
