Even if you bought it, and did an engine swap, the early e30's came with an ugly seatbelt light mounted on top of the dashboard, and crappy looking first gen tail lights, ugly bumpers and moulding, and don't forget those higher rear wheel arches. I'd almost rather start with a M42 car that needed body work.

Although, if you wanted a classic chrome covered daily beater, why not? The M10 really isn't that bad.

$300!

The 84 318s to me turn me on because they are so damn light...(The lightest produced e30)

.......and with enough paitience and monies you can be smacking 500awhp Evos!

i will agree on that it is extremely light!!...Some people on this forum are quite immature...its a really good car for what it is..it would be great for a 6cylinder swap or even a v8 ...the body is in excellent condition..i have reciepts for all the rockers and fenders that were ordered for it...

Yeah that is where to me it also looks like there might be some rust. It could be dirt, but 90% of E30's have bad rust there hence the concern.

safgreen36, look at the bright side. The joking around in this thread is getting your car noticed. It really does show promise and I hope you get a good offer.

I actually prefer the early tail lights! They look cleaner to me... the later model ones are too big. Also don't mind the rear arches, because you can get even wheel placement without rake (similarily, you can get a flat car without uneven wheels)... but that one I can understand why people go for it, because people love to tuck.





Oh yeah, and.... $310!!

Talking

I'll bid $350 since you've taken the time and effort to actually post some details about the car.
