Yeah, we'll see. Someone in Oregon who has one is supposedly swinging through Seattle in a few days and is interested in selling, but hasn't specified a price yet. For the life of me, I can't figure out why these are so expensive, or why there aren't a gazzillion Chinese knockoffs as is the case for other cars.

I'm not sure why there aren't knock offs either, seems easy enough to make.

Listed the M50 for sale today. Decided that I just want an E30 with an M42 or eta engine. I'm gonna be going to school 350mi away, so good mpg is a plus. Also, I don't really wanna put a lot of work into a beater. Now I just need a good one to show up for sale.

I'm also open to other ideas for a winter beater. Doesn't have to be a BMW, but I'm looking for something similar to an E30, easy to work on, good mpg, and <1k.
