E30 M3

How Much can I sell my car for. It needs an engine rebuild. It has 158k on it. The body needs a little work.

If you plan on selling the car,you could probably get $5-$7000 with no engine.

If you part-out the car,you'll probably make more money than selling it as a whole.

Dude, I warned you in the beginning when you first were looking for an M3 to make sure you have the car thoroughly inspected !!!
You made the mistake of buying an E30 M3 with a bad engine This is gonna cost you alotta time and $$$$.....

Sorry to hear about your situation,but if I were you,I'd sell it the way it is and look for another one.

I don't know man,I haven't investigated on this subject too much.
Invest some time and give Raven Performance a call tomorrow and speak with John Dimoff. 905 - 477-1800

Good luck

why not buy E36 2.5L? theres plenty of power to boot an E30! you hit 13s in it stock! i say go for the M50 which is couple of grand cheaper than M3 engine

Whatever rob!

The point in my post was EVERYONE on this board.... but you are right, I guess that does include me....

soooooooooo...............what are you going to do?

and for your pos comments..... calm your ass down.... don't be so brave.... you'll live longer.... why get all stressed and but strain on your little brain!

i know what you mean.... Raven , they are good, they tell you what SOMEONE else did to your car so you can look like you know what is going on...just remember.. keep the $ coming in and they are your best friends!

and Rob... .... you really are the dumbass.... know when someone is insulting you and making a general comment.....

this is will be the last of this.... don't test me son.

Well Rob why don't you tell everyone how bad Dimoff ripped you a new a$$hole when you bought your coilovers? LOL! I give Dimoff credit on his race cars (acid dipped, full rollcages, race suspension, etc...). But I guarantee he dosent worry about expences to build them because knobs like you pay for it.

So to do an engine conversion installation properly should cost anywere between $1000 to $1,800. I suggest you contact Bimmersport (Charlie) since he has done some or MOTRONIX (Dave). But to contact MOTRONIX I would suggest that you wait till empowerd comes back from Germany and he can help.
