When will people realize that swaps depreciate an e30's value? You can swap bullshit all day long it won't make your car better than a mint 325is that BMW put millions of man hours of design into to get 'just right.'

For a 20-25 year old car still in almost factory condition, $9k sounds better than the $30k+ they were new from the dealership. Since 1991 BMW hasn't produced a car as well balanced as this, and they never will again.

If you want an e30, and you want it to be as close to new as possible, you will pay the price to have the perfect car. If all you can conclude is 'no rust = $4k' then go kill yourself today... TODAY.

OP good luck with the sale, worth every penny. I'd open up a new thread though, sorry for the rant.

Talk to me in 8 years or so. A clean original example will always be worth more than a hacked up e30.

I'm not saying I hate swapped cars, some are tasteful and very well done, but in terms of value an original will always be worth more. Find an M3 without an S14 that still holds any sort of value.
