Apparently, they build this thing that only has 2 operators pedals and shifts on it's own. In turn it's a slow piece of shit.

I've actually see S.E30's car as well its hella clean. From the description of his little boo-boo its just cosmetic damage and nothing too serious like structural damage. A bonus is that it has the M50B25 engine (the 2.5L used in E36 models) so you get a newer engine that is a bit better on gas and requires less maintenance since it does not have a timing belt.

Changing body panels on the front end of an E30 is pretty straight forward and not too hard at all.

If you and the wifey dont mind a 2-door it could be good buy, only thing i can see that may be a problem is its been lowered so you would have to be a little more careful in the winter (or install stock springs)

I think the OP was looking for a summer only car anyway, so lowered isn't an issue. Swapping front fender is super easy, or cheap if you get a shop to do it.

lol but there's lots of speedbumps these days in the burbs...

i've contacted S.E30 via PM so hoping I can check it out and decide if i'm ready to commit to this...
