Kinda sold my car because of the hot summers we're getting recently, just can't do it without a/c nowadays. But I am definitely considering your E30.

I would be too. You can't build a car like this for the money your asking!

There is an E30 318is with an S50 that's been for sale since last year. Similar price to yours but not as nice in my opinion.

There are lots of "looking for an E30" threads but I guess nobody's looking in that price range.

damn, that's actually a great price, problems is, most of us think they can get out an e30 for 4-5ks but after building it, we all end up at 8-9k easily but never a car clean as yours!
If I had more spare money, I would jump on this selling mine for the lower price that people are ready to pay... however, reliability of such a motor always pulls me back, I fear that blowing an engine like this would cost a fortune to bring back to life... unless you convince me of the opposite!

really great car for a great price...

Agreed, but I think most of us want a "less perfect" car because the build is the fun part and it allows you to customize it your way.

Nevertheless, this is an amazing car for a great price. GLWS

M30's are cheap to buy (<$500?) whocares if it blows, you can easily replace it!

JNSchnitzer: Maybe, but this one was done with taste, anyway I like it!

Michel : You might be right, plz stop finding reasons to make me think of buying this! haha

Q. to Seller: As far as that M30 goes, did it have any internal replacements? I know the head has been taken care of. And, at 330whp how much psi is that? 10?

Also, you should post pictures of the motor and set-up! I haven't seen any.

Not only that, the m30 is pretty indestructable . I dare you to buy, and attempt to blow up!

Look up goodNtight on r3v limited. he puts incredible power down on a stock m30 just for shits. hes out of hes mind

Wow! Anyone trying to build/boost an e30 or any bmw for that matter cannot build a running/boosting car for this price or less.... Really confuses me why someone hasn't snatched this up yet

They are actually quite reliable if tuned properly. You'd have to be trying to put down some pretty serious power to blow up an M30... and even then there are a number of other parts that will fail before the motor will.
