this is where i bought my E30. It was a good place to deal with, friendly guys, I dont know who i spoke too, this was 3 or so years ago.

They had to move like 9 cars for me to test drive my e30, at the time i never showed interest in it, but they didnt have a problem getting to the car for the test drive.

Good place to buy overall, there is no shadyness factor with the cars :)

^^^ it does...the car is such a rare find...180k original paint, not dents, scratches or replaced panels or rust. all vin #s match and yes it's indoors too. i'm guessing it was never winter driven, and hopefully it'll stay like that. first mods will be steering wheel, shifter, pedals and e-brake handle, and maybe a deck and/or exhaust.
soon she will be all mine :)

Nice find, but make sure that it has a clean title. Sometimes it may be too good to be true. Be cautious.

Ha! That car has been for sale forever. It was $6500 I think, last fall. I know it dropped A LOT since then. I think Amaru almost bought the same one.

i got a carfax report from crazyvadim (thanks again) and the car had 1 owner and no accidents. the front shock tower welds were all nice, no rust near the pedals or seats. just need to check out the trunk.
but i thought it was too good to be true but it looks in great condition. the carfax report said 8000~km average annual travel which is about half of normal. so i guess it was stored in the winter.
i'm calling the insurance company 2moro to get me a quote. it shouldn't be high since it'll be under my dad's name.
btw...it's got grey cloth interior with some sweet sport seats...anyone know what their called? or are they called sport seats?

Yeah, cloth sport seats are very rare in M20 cars. You're lucky.

Hopefully it has LSD, that was a stand-alone option for 1991. The only other options were leather and an airbag. What steering wheel does it have?

the steering wheel was changed to some "racing" wheel which i will replace. hopefully it has a LSD....where would the S be on the differential???would i need to jack the car up to see???

There's an S tag hanging off the diff is its an LSD - an easier way to check is to spin one of the rear wheels while its in the air. If both tires spin in the same direction you have LSD; if they spin in opposite directions then you have an open diff.
