btt you get a "minty" one you're into taxes, shipping charges, $$ conversion and time - you're basically back in the seat of 4-8k depending on model. 6 half dozen or the other. That is why a very good to excellent condition e30 here is fetching that. Aside from this it is becoming increasingly harder to find one in original un bastardized condition. :-) did I forget to mention the cost of traveling south and what a person defines as minty? I have seen alot of "minty" cars that should have been in the scrap
