I had a collector policy with JC Taylor but they, like all the others, require a locked garage and that you have something else for a DD. While collector policies offer a degree of comfort based on "agreed value" the claims I've had were all settled based on a realistic fmv.

Recently Sold Verts as Proof of Value

I noted this vert popped up for sale at a dealer near me... I might have to go look at it in person. 8k asking price! I'm a pretty dedicated e30 enthusiast, been driving them since 98, but I just can't believe the dealer thinks someone would pay that kind of money for one of these... what's all your take on this one? Are vert's actually commanding these prices or think this dealer has been hitting the crack pipe a little too hard?

I might even see if I can test drive it. I already have too many e30s, but if anyone wants me to take a look at it for them I will.

Yes, plenty of nice clean verts go for $8k. That one, however, doesn't look like it's worth anywhere near 8

I paid 14.5 last December for a two owner, fully documented 1990 325iC with 29k miles. It came with two covers, hardtop and trolley and oem windscreen. 5 speed, manual top, lsd, cold a/c already converted to R134a. I sold the hardtop and windscreen for $1,900 so my final cost was $12.5k. Everything worked (except cassette), no dash cracks, working odometer, and garage storage kept entire life.

In 1980 I bought a 2002. It was thrashed to sh!t. I was 18, got it cheap and loved it. I put waaay too much money into it (and had the Zipper BMW receipts to prove it) basically replaced the entire car.

I was driving home, on the 405 at 2am from Balboa Island to Beverly Hills and the right rear rim came off. There was no real shoulder and I was stuck in the fast lane. I ran across the freeway to a call box, started asking for a tow truck, heard a loud crash and saw my 2002 in a ball of flames. A drunk girl ran into the filler side fender.

I had asked for a tow truck, and then said nevermind, send the fire department. The firewall worked in reverse, all that was left was the front end. As it was burned beyond recognition, I said it was perfect and provided the receipts, got enough to get a virtually perfect 40k original mile 2002 Tii with AC and mini CS rims form the original owner in Malibu.

Good times....

I like their motto. Drive our reputation. based on that car I suppose their rep is overpricing cars?

Hate the rims, not a fan of the cloth seat reupholster.
