Yep. And the worst part is that performance parts are cheap enough that the average enthusiast can buy them, but are still expensive enough to break your wallet when you add them all together.

Yeah, that is waaaaaaay too much for a 944 in that condition, even if it is a Turbo S. It's really not even worth half of that.

They probably weren't the Turbo S model, since those are considerably more scarce. Still though, $15k for a Turbo S in that condition with those miles is insanity.

Yeah, looks like a great deal. Wonder if it has a rebuilt title or anything shady like that.

Probably clean title, but it's got 115k and probably hasn't been maintained.





Having owned an E36 at 110k with no prior maintenance, have fun with that ball of joy.

It appears to be in decent shape, but it's overpriced. I'd say it's worth about $4-4.5k. There are no details on the car, so chances are it's due for a ton of maintenance, too.

For you folks that like euro steering wheels. $80 shipped, but not the best condition. I would probably get it but the color difference from the middle of the wheel to the outside annoys me.

Meh, those are base model steering wheels overseas. I think they're pretty ugly.

Yeah, I'm not too big of a fan, either. But when they are clean, they are definitely better looking than the US ones.

Not better looking than US wheels, IMO. That thing looks like it's straight out of the '80s.

Hows that one look? I'm a little skeptical about the check engine light thing.

Yeah, I just posted to give everyone a chuckle about what some people think their car is worth.
