Meh... price is still kinda high. What's up with those tips and hitch??

Really wanna do a 6spd swap, though. Would probably do that before FI if I ever get the money.

Nah, I was talking about the 328. The M3 is priced right as long as the PPI shows up relatively spotless. That thing is clean. Silver is too boring for me, however, but that's just preference.

That M3 on BF.c is wicked clean... looks amazing. I was looking at it when I bought my 328 from him. At the time he had a VANOS issue, but he recently rebuilt it from what I understand. re-did the seals I guess.

If I had the cash, that M3 would be sitting in my driveway as a DD. but alas, i haz no more cash.

Uggh this is so tempting. But it's 4000lbs+. It annoys me so much that BMW didn't bring the E30 wagon to the US.

But CJ would S54 swap it... I assume a 6 speed manny trans would be part of that.

Well yeah. I think all E34 tourings were automatic... not sure though. I've got an entire swap kit anyway.

Nah, I would do an S52. S54 is too expensive/complicated.

You could make a lot of money in parts off of that car. Definitely worth the $550 cost of entry.

Ooo I wish my car budget was higher. Well i probably wouldn't swap this into my body. It's not clean enough. A boy can dream though.
