More than likely.


I'd love to buy it, manual swap it and put a couple thousand miles a summer on it.

yup, that's the first thing i noticed. I don't know, maybe US versions don't have them?


Fun fact: they're always perceived as the e36 M3 mirrors though the last e30 M3 DTM cars had these mirrors first, although in a smaller version.




1988 M3 SOLD on 4/27/18 for $36,750

i still don't get why this one went so cheap compared to others. Yes maybe it's not perfectly presented, but the interior alone is more desirable than the standard e30 karoseats and Mtech1 steeringwheel. Why then just under 40k, i'd bet it would go around 50

I was watching that M3 for month's, I cant believe it sold for so much. Was the frame damaged? Was the engine anything special?

Nothing special about it at all.

125k mile car, I was second owner. Engine was rebuilt by my local BMW dealer in 2012 at 108k. Unibody was severely damaged from the impact. Someone is going to get the car and be severely disappointed.

So... over/under that the winner on that MT2 auction bails and it's relisted?

Just saying, new user who had signed up this month, and then goes way high on the value. Seen it happen a lot, and yet BAT still won't change their policy.

I'm not saying I don't appreciate the value bump since it only benefits my collection, but I also hate seeing the sellers getting screwed by flaky bidders and BAT's attitude.

My guess would be the color (car and wheels) or quality of respray, missing bumper caps might make people wonder about how thorough of a restoration it underwent and non BMW aficionado's may not like or "get" the M tech interior. The pictures weren't great either.

Hard to say these days. There are people with money looking to buy in. The car should be in as new condition so $30k while strong for any non M3 isn't completely out of the ballpark. Considering EAG sells clean 20-50k mile 318iS and 325iS's for low - mid 20's...this one looks to be right in line. Obviously, that's not where my money would go but to each his own.

I always thought e30 m3 had the dogleg gearbox, but i've seen a few on BAT now that have the standard pattern on the shifter. So am i wrong to assume all e30 m3 have dogleg gearboxes?

US M3's have standard gearboxes.
