The bad news: It's non-op. Currently without a differential and has an electrical gremlin that eats batteries when it sits for a few days. Has been sitting motionless in my driveway for 18 months. Before that, the engine ran strong and I never had a problem with smog. Various suspension bits and pieces have been replaced but it needs more work. The climate control is finicky, the OBC doesn't work, the dash computer's pixels are out, the leather seats needs repair or replacement. On the plus side, the body has no rust at all and it's straight, no accidents.

If you're reading this you know how rare this car is. And it's not greymarket--I checked. It's one of fewer than 1000 US e32s that shipped with a manual transmission. I absolutely love the car and haven't yet gotten rid of it because I really wanted to do a full restoration. Alas, I have neither the time nor the resources right now.

I need this car to go to a good home. I'd love $950 for it but more importantly I want to pass it on to someone who will love and restore it. If you're interested please PM me. Thanks!

To clarify: I'd *like* $950 for it but I'll *take* pretty much any offer that doesn't include me paying you to haul it away. Also I really need the car to go to someone who will restore it, not use it for a donor vehicle.
