As the title says, looking for a 88-91 coupe, must have decent paint and no major rust.

Willing to pay whats fair for the condition of the car.

MUST be a coupe, no 4 doors and no verts. NO early models.

Yeah, that one looks nice. The pictures may be not the best quality. I would take a good look in person. The carpet looks too dirty for such a low mileage. Maybe it's the quality of those images and not having crisp images. A good start for sure.

Yes.

I have figured out that the car more likely has around 290k kms on it then the posted 130. If you look back at glebs old for sale thread it had around 225k kms at that time. He's also used the same pictures from glebs for sale thread.

I'm still hopefull that the car is good, I will definitely go look at it, just waiting for daria to get back to me with some info about rust etc.

In the meantime, someone find me a clean late model coupe... NAOW :D

Man ... you guys know more about my car than me ....

I finally went through all the paperwork on file. The car had a new cluster put in back in 1999 and once you add up the numbers it has 230K (not 130K). So ... I was shy by 100K!

I appologise if I got anyone all excited. I'll still fire you some recent photos Stephen.

To be honest, I don't feel like wasting a tank of gas to be dissapointed by another overpriced shitbox. If it's a nice car, take some good pictures and either post them in your forsale thread or send them to me.

I read through your for sale thread and you talk about people on the internet being time wasters. I think you have a shitbox for sale and are louring people from far to come look at it. I can already see from your for sale thread the hood is either damaged, or misaligned. I'd like to see pictures of the license plate lights, battery tray, front fender bottoms and at the bottom of the A-pillar. If those spots are decent then you MIGHT have a decent car.

I love people that say this. Just from that statement alone I would be disappointed regardless just because of the sugarcoating. I bet you say in a lot of your ads that your cars are MINT, am I right? :rolleyes:

I saw his car last week.... won't start and hasn't run in a long time. looked like a rear end repair jobby (painted panels here and there and the corner where the battery sits has been rebuilt... looks clean BUT I wouldn't buy a repainted car that won't start for 5k... if you have a spare s50 then do it, otherwise..... meh. :huh?:

LOL thank you for the post,

I wouldn't give him 1k for the car in that condition.

Its a parts car IMO

ya, I cant trust body work unless I know what it was that got fixed, and by who. clean e30's are fast becoming a California Dream....... srsly though the battery sits about 8 inches too high because of the shyte repair.... too bad

Agreed, I don't want a perfect car, but I also don't want to pay 5k for a shitbox. I want something to daily drive and have fun with, my current car (a mint one owner corrado) I feel bad driving, its such a waste for what I want. So I want a DECENT e30, not perfect, but not a shitbox for 5k. Why is that so hard :(

here are new pics!!! i know a guy was upset because i didnt take a $3500 offer, i also know a guy Peter wants to buy it, but that is not a reason to say things that are not truth. The car had the quater pannel repair but it was a very good job, it will be hard to find a car 20 years old with out repairs!!! the car is very clean, and drives good. i can take more pics if you want , mean while here is the link with todays pics:

well, Peter was going to call me for the car, after he saw it he sent me an email but he never called again. i am not trying to push the car, if someone wants it i believe is a good car.
I dont need it since i got an E30 M3, but i am not in a hurry to sell. The price is negociable anyways.

LMFAO at this thread. Steve you kill me. No 4 doors? What's wrong with you? 4 doors for the win man! :moon: Anyhow, 318's for the loss. Why does no one have any clean 325is's? Do you ever notice that? Oh well, good luck my friend.

I want a 325is soooo bad, but I think you have already heard my plans motor wise anyways :D. I think I may have to start a build thread before I even have a car. Everyone knows I've been hoarding parts this whole time, just need a car to put them on :P

fail steve wants a 88+ and i can see the rust under the lic plate lights and why are you posting cars from a million miles away.

If the car was 2000.00 less then your asking I'd be interested. But for that money it's missing too much and too fishy for me.
