Needs a new timing chain, but it's well taken care of.

Don't know what to say about this.

^Tell me about it. I sat waiting patiently for about two years for one to turn up at a reasonable price, but they were all being sold for about $20 less than new, and were usually taken from cars that had been crashed.

^which increases the likelyhood of them being tweaked...

probably just going to buy new, though. save me the time and hassle of refinishing a used unit. just because it's under the car doesn;t mean i want it to look like crap....

Some body panels too, plus that engine. I lost the deal on the 325i engine that a local was selling for $300.

So now I need to find another one for the M-Tech. It doesn't need a new engine now, but I figure might as well start building the new engine before the current one goes belly up.

Ah, there's just something about the look of an "M3 clone" body with 205 tires on the front.

Hard to believe that interior has 330k on it. Looks really good. I can live with it.

Well the original owner really took care of it. The driver's seat does have its blemishes here and there, but that is the overall condition of it. Plus the headliner sag (I didn't get a picture of it because racecar), and the door panel is starting to peel, but nothing some glue can't fix. I will be commissioning an upholstery shop to fix it. I'd rather it be done properly.

More pictures to come. I had to have the current owner take pictures of it since I don't have a ride until Friday to go get the car. And even then I don't know if either of them will be available.

I need to make more friends.
