So, I went ahead and made the plunge, all $500 of it. I got a 1985 318i, 5 speed, with 122,000 miles. I figured it was a good deal, and didn't want to pass it up. I also talked with Bavarian auto recycling about doing the S14 engine swap for the car, he said he knows people who have done it and its not too bad. It wont be cheap, but I feel like I am up for the financial undertaking, as well as the peripherals Ill do myself. You guys probably think I am crazy
, I guess we will see what happens. Maybe Ill just use it as a DD.
