Only asking $600! Needs usual old bmw stuff, balljoints, shocks, etc. But it runs and drives and everything. Seriously considering it.

Yeah, by the phonecall, it seems to be a middle-aged lady selling it. I'm gonna go up there tomorrow with $480 (all of my cash atm) and see if I can work some magic.

The E30 M3 had flared fenders front & rear, along with a wider track front & rear (aluminum control arms, too). They also had special rear deck lids, c-pillars, and rear spoilers. The car in that ad has E36 twisty skirts (which never came on any E30), and what looks like some sort of custom adaptation of an E36 rear bumper. Can't tell what's going on out front, but I can see that it has black trim which does not match an actual E30 M3 bumper. Basically, I don't think it has anything from an E30 M3 on it.

Seams like a lot of trouble to put the wrong parts on the car

Never was a fan of the flared fenders on the E30 M3, to be honest.

As with many things BMW has done over the years, objectively speaking yes, they are ugly, but they're just so damn cool that I still like them.

I think the flared fenders are great. What I have never liked about the E30 M3 is the C-pillar and rear deck lid.
