That is nice looking, but the wheels arenít helping it. Some nice BBS or Alpinas would make that one pop.

100% agreed. That would be dangerous if it was closer to the Bay Area! Such a great colour. What do people think about the interior colour?

Gorgeous color! I don't think I've ever seen it before.

And yes those wheels gotta go.

this is certainly weird

Purchased new in LA and lived in Santa Monica and Palm Desert for the first 10 years of its life then garaged for 30 years in Long Beach.

Aftermarket turbo and 5-speed manual transmission. The body and interior is very, very nice, so it is worth saving.

THE CAR DOES NOT RUN, The transmission and master cylinder are out of the car. The turbo is disconnected, the distributor is out and the valve cover is unbolted.

ALL OF THE PARTS ARE IN THE TRUNK AND IT IS BEING SOLD "AS IS"

I'd say its about 10k over priced,
to build something simalar your self, 5-7k for the drive line, 15-20k for the shell, and 5k for the interior. roughly speaking

Anyone know the name of these wheels?

Honestly though, reading through the build, itís easily worth 30k+.

Bimmerheads did the motor and itís full on porting job it sounds like with cam. Plus turbo and Megasquirt set up and tuning. So itís probably just around 10k on the motor. Body is in really good shape as is the interior.

That wide body E30 on BAT brought 23k and this looks better built. So Iím thinking if you showed up with 30-35k heíd bargain.

But at the end of the day what's a MODIFIED e30 worth. Not the sum of its parts, which I'm sure could be north of 40k. Maybe.

80s cars that cost 40k+ are collectors vehicles, and at that market price anyone in their right mind would buy an m3 or a 911.

I hear you, mine isnt worth what I put into the sum of the parts, but that isnt why I built it.

Exactly. All the mods on that touring started aging the day they were installed.
10 years from now, a 2019 resto-mod is going to look outdated, but OEM setups always look the same.
