Maybe, i'm considering it if I can find something else


On a side note, I found a set of 4 bilsteins with red h&r spings at the junk yard today for 250.
And 3-M double spoke style 68 with perfect tires for 225.

I didn't get either, but I might

I wish I had a junk yard like that by me. The one near me had 3 stripped 318s, and 2 e34s, thats it.

There should be a junkyard just for bimmers somewhere...the ultimate bavarian graveyard.

Well the aforementioned friend (I'll refer to him as Drew because that is his name) has decided to lie low for now. It's a small college town in the sticks, and most of the people who'd be interested in it anyways (anyone with a fancy for speed and attention) would rather have a Subaru. Those seem to be the hot topic for up here (I swear the college campus parking lots are 50% Subaru).

He's considered the option of taking out a loan for the $5500 the guy wants for the red e34. After buying that he could fix up the prevailing problems with his tib (cracked CF hood and faulty headlight lens gasket) and sell it for a solid profit over what he paid. The car fixed could get seven thousand easy. He bought it with a faulty syncro for 2nd gear for $4000.

As for the bimmer: we found out it was first in Missouri, then in Cali, then up to Vermont. It seems pretty legitimate. All we can do it wait

Well I have the rear seats (dont really care for the m stripes), and rear bumper is fine with me, I just want an m diffusor. And mirrors are meh, ive grown onto non-m mirrors.

I just want the M power . That sounds way too fishy tho. Something must be wrong with the motor to sell that cheap.

Yeah there was an s50 on craigslist in sac the other day for 600. That one is definately fishy, cause there is no damage to the car yet he is still parting it.

Idk, you could put some steelies on the back and drag it up on a flatbed. Maybe he is just tired of trying to part it out

Thanks, You'll see how bad it got since bimmerfest though


And as for now.. Gotta finish up the interior (dash, headliner, and panels). Then paint my tails the way they are because the film is starting to peel. Oh and I still have to replace the radiator.

Thennn after I get the car up to par, Im going to start saving up for an s50/52 whichever comes in my way. Soooo the car will stay the same for a long while lol.
