Hi Chris.

That's indeed a great looking car and bargain at that price. Can you tell us a bit more about what prompted the salvage title in the US? And how it was fixed.

The car is originally from Texas. In 1991 it had a bad accident and got written off. Anyways that was 16 years ago, and it has had everything repaired since.
I believe it was hit on the drivers side. There is NO evidence of a hit at all.
The alignment of the car is perfect and everything looks to have been replaced with new components.

It was brought here to Canada a few years back, and has received a fresh motor and drivetrain, new suspension, new interior, paint...etc.

In the last year over $25k has been invested into the car. It has been professionally built by CGMotorsports.

I do watnt to say that the history in Canada is clean, title is clean, and its only had 1 accident 16 years ago. If it werent for the accident, I would be selling this car for closer to $30k. You just cant get them like this anymore, unless you're prepared to spend the money

Scares me. Most E30 M3 buyers will avoid these cars, unless they will make it into a track car.

These cars gotta have a clean history, for the most part .

GL with the sale.

siiiiiiiiickkkkkkkkkkkk E30 just the way an e30 m3 should look like . good luck with the sale.

As Axxe already mentioned, not too crazy about the flaired rear fenders.

Nice car otherwise. Do you have any interior pictures? The price you're asking is usually in and around 2.5L converted cars. Any engine modifications? Also if you look on S14.net a leakdown and compression test on the engine is usually key to selling these cars as well (engine rebuilds are expensive).

Good luck with the sale!

Hi all. I happen to also own an e30 M3 and perhaps have a fine eye for judging one. This one may have had a wreck title in the past, but if it was fixed properly, it should be good just as new. Hopefully, the work has been done by a top notch shop. Except for that "old history", the car is just about perfect. Those of you who claim it is overpriced should know what it costs to maintain one. A rebuilt stock motor alone is $10k, which is already half of the asking price. Plus paint, plus suspension, plus the mint interior, plus the very $$$ wheels. In fact, if the car is as described, it is a real deal. M3s are harder and harder to get, and prices go up every few months. Those of you who want an 100% original and mint M3 shall prepare to pay $30k and up. The days of the $10k M3 are long gone.

As with any used car, a thorough inspection should obviously be performed before shelling out $20k. Leak down test, etc.

Good luck with the sale anyway. I would buy that M3 if I did not have one already. This being said, be assured that I have absolutely no affiliation with the seller. And that I was even the first one to mention the previous wreck title. So, I am not biased in anyway.

BTW Chris. It is true that a car with a wreck title might be harder to sell. You even have been a bit discreet about the details. If I were you, I would disclose all the info, show some before-and-after pictures, as well as in-process, to help everyone understand there is no risk/fear buying your excellent M3. If the car has had the whole front end removed and replaced by another one, then so be it. It will be stronger anyway than so many cars that have a clean title and are hiding rust. The car being from a dry Texas environement (before the damp BC) will also help push the rust-free condition. Any photos of the shell rebuilt Chris?

Have been watching this car for sometime. Real nice car. Maybe its time for a trip to BC and take a better look .............
