Looking at some AutoX build options...

You guys see any e30's (don't care if running, engine size) in the California area? If it's up North or in San Diego, it has to run, but if in the LA area, non running is OK...

If it's just for AutoX consider getting a Z3 roadster. You can actually find decent 2.8i and Z3 Ms for less than 10k if you look hard enough. They're sick at autocross, but it would take a lot of work to get it suitable for a real track.

Looking for a cheaper project, looking in the low $1k range for a base... I love the e30's, Usama's e30 really makes me cream. I can always go with a miata for a track'er but I'd like to stay in the bimmer family!

Turns out the blurry pictures were by design. The thing is a dog. Total piece of crap. It was Amber that was interested in it. She was super disappointed and mad at the guy for wasting her time and half a tank of gas getting there and back.

That's a good thing she didn't get it. That price is very high.

He had it on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $2450. It's got 23 bids and is up to $1825 with the reserve not met. If it meets the reserve, somebody's going to be seriously pissed off when they actually see it.

Now I'm search CL for another E30 for her. I found what looked like a good one in Dallas....but it sold yesterday.

She wants an AW or Schwarz coupe, 5 speed only, 2.5 M20. Willing to travel up to 500-ish miles to get it.

Ridiculously clean.. but he overpaid for so much stuff. $300 for tail lights, $80 for corners, $80 for side badges, $400 for a wing?? Come on


Forgot the best one... $200 to repaint the wood grain trim.
