I was going to M50 swap this car but I found something else I want way more. It barely ran when I got it but I replaced a bunch of parts (hoses, gaskets, etc.) and now it runs pretty good. No codes.

Before my plans changed I was trying to get the car on the road to drive for the winter, but I couldn't get it to pass an e-test. It was failing on NOx on the 40km/h test. Since then I discovered that the intake manifold gaskets were trashed and replaced them, but haven't bothered to get it tested again.

The car has 275xxx Km. Both front fenders need to be replaced. The nose panel has some surface rust as well as a tiny bit around the license plate lights - the usual E30 stuff. Underneath it's solid with no holes that I've seen. The car has been rustproofed pretty heavily in the past. Rear suspension is good, front probably needs control arm bushings and possibly struts. Front brakes are all new. It also has a SS kit from Richie_s999 - makes it pretty fun to drive.

This car would make a good winter beater for someone with the resources/connections to get it on the road, but it would also make a great base for a winter swap project. I just need it gone asap.

$2000 OBO.

Bump for a good seller and car.

This car is pretty rare in the E30 world (Interior and slicktop) it would make a great winter car or could be a good looking e30 with some work.

LSD is also a bonus for the winter, and it has some wicked meaty tires on it.

Clutch/flywheel was replaced with used stuff. The disc still has lots of life left. Not sure what kind of mileage is on it though. The deck will go with the car.

Lol. If it's not gone within the next two weeks I'm probably gonna keep it. Just ask Santa to come early this year:P
