FS: E30 w/S50 & Supercharger ----> Updated Price

Below you will find some recent pictures of the car.

The car started it's life as a 91 318is. Currently the engine is the S50 which is the 95 3.0L M3 engine with the addition of VF Engineering supercharger stage one kit with upgraded blow of valve. The SC kit was custom fitted to fit the E30 body and it works perfectly. The original milage on the engine was 70k miles and currently it has about 80k miles. The transmision is the ZF and came as part of the original engine swap. The differential was replaced with the LSD 3.25 ratio diff, out of an E28, to improve drivability and make use of all the extra power. The exhaust was custom build out of stainless steel components, all mendral bent. The piping size is 2x2.25" with two stainless steel high flow cats and two stainless steel resonators, with stainless steel x joint. I also added some durability/safety items during the installation of the supercharger kit. These were Bavarian Performance coils, new 255 Walbro fuel pump, and new fuel and air filters. Overall the reliability of the drivetrain is great. I had no issues with the setup since the supercharge has been put on (about 3k miles) which includes city and highway driving as well as some track time (drag strip, earlier this summer 13.2 on current tires). The car can definitively be driven as a daily driver, it has a working AC system and the ride is quite civilized for the setup, with exhaust tone being on the loud side when at full throttle.

Within the last 3 years the car also received the following upgrades:
Fuel tank and all fuel lines.
Ireland Engineering Steel Braded Brake lies
Ireland Engineering Sway Bars
Ireland Engineering Short Shifter
Ireland Engineering front offset bushings
Ireland Engineering rear trailing arm bushings
All new ball joints
New diff bushing
New front upper shock mounts/bearings
New front wheel bearings
Sparco front swaybar
Sparco rear swaybar
Koni Yellow adjustable shocks
B&G springs
IX dual diaphram brake booster
Large E36 aluminum radiator

For exterior stuff:
Front Hela Tinted Epsyloids
Front Euro Grills
Rear Euro lisence grill
Fabulous condition BBS RS 16x8, 4x100 wheels w/ Toyo T1S tires

For interior stuff:
Perfect 318is sprot cloth interior
Euro Style Momo wooden steering wheel (can be changed for a momo leather)
Euro Style wooden shift knob
Alpine CD deck (lights up same color as interior)
Rockford Fosgate 900W amp
IPP 12" sub in a box

So now for the price. If I count all the things that I have put into the car and the labour, etc. I spend close to 24k on this car. However being in the tuning scen for a long time, I know one can never get back what they put into the car. So my original post was asking $15,500 cnd for the car. If I will have to keep the car for this winter it will cost me approx. $1,600 for insurance and storage, so I decided to pass this savings on to a potential buyer. So the current asking price is $13,900.

PRICE $13,900 Canadian
