E30 Pricing???

I have an opportunity to purchase a 1988 M3. New paint and leather interior. 188k miles. Asking price is 12500. Not sure what these go for or how long they last. What do you guys think?

So far it sounds like a deal.

Clean Title? No rust? Matching VINs?

Has the engine been rebuilt? If yes, does the seller have documentation?

A rebuild on the S14 motor costs about $5K.

$5k for s14 rebuild? I'd love to know where! I've been quoted $8k.

E30 MotorWerks in Huntington Beach, CA

Precision German in Anaheim Hills, CA

I think Solely BMW in Lake Forest, CA is competitive as well.

At the moment Steve at Blunttech has a complete motor: all accessories, ecu, engine harness with all new timing components and new rod + main bearings. $6K. Reach him via http://www.blunttech.com

I wish I had $6K burning a hole in my pocket.
