I often wonder why cars go to scrap. Not that I complain in terms of spare parts. New fuel pump and rebuild?

because even a beautiful looking car can be hiding major nightmares. i've scrapped 2 e30's in the last few years, 1 looked minty and was hidign a bent frame, the other looked good and was hiding under almosy 3/8" of body filler.


I'd never scrap an e30 because of a mechanical failure/problem tho. there is a huge amount of people who are looking for shells to make track cars or projects who will pay more than double the cars scrap value.

sell the car as a roller. i personally look for rollers almost everyday, they make the perfect project car because of the low purchase price and how cheap bmw engines are.

This e30 is now being parted out. NO body panels are for sale, bumpers/fenders/hood/mirrors/valance or front turn signals. Everything else is up for grabs. Euro grills/cluster are sold, suspension/brakes/LSD/rear tails are already spoken for.
