I don't know where is this come from , maybe in states that kind of bmw cost so much money .

In Europe such e30 325 in good shape you can buy for about 1000 Euro = 1200$ so in my view it's rather nothing special for 3300 .

it looks like the only M3 upgrades are the Recoros - everything else seems pretty vague. I wouldn't pay that much for an 89 with high miles. Besides, that car is in Cape Cod meaning that it spends 6 monts out of the year buried in snow and the other 6 driving through rain or salt filled oacean spray. I wouldn't be surprised if the bottom of that car was rotted out.

Here is what he said to me in the e-mail.

the car has 204k i had a cadillac on craigslist that i sold to a guy..
he gave me cash and the bmw. so im not so familiar with the history.. i do
know that the suspension is from a m3 along with the interior,, the original
factory rims have a set of blizzak snow tires that are on the car now..
there is also a set of dynamic alloy rims with new tires (low profile)
the engine block and head were done around 40k ago all with bmw parts,, the
instruments and dash indicators are all working along with the gauges
and all power options.. ther car is really clean and runs very very
good..the interior is also from a m3 with 6 way recacro bucket seats there is
also a stablizer on the front end shock towers that is usaully for a m3 i
think the price is very fair considering the upgrades and overall condition
... the car basically has all the popular modifications for this model bmw
,, and they were done well and done right i sent some pics its all i have right now ,,, the date on my camara is wrong
these pics were taken today

here is one of the pics he sent. dont look all to great like he says.

Take a look how much cost such car in europe its BMW E30 325i modified with 181KM leather outfit and many other things from M-tech + lowered about 80mm .

In my view looks much better and costs only 999Euro = 1200$

yeah, i don't think i'd get that if you don't know the history at all, if there is something wrong it's gonna cost a lot!! plus those definitely aren't m3 seats, those come in the sport models of the e30, so i don't think i'd trust anything else he said about the car either. good luck, you'll find a nice one, just be patient...

one more thing, i'm moving to europe!!!

that's kind of weird - the car is located in Berlin but the whole ad (except for the last paragraph) is written in Polish and posted on a Polish website.

.... you can change the language at the bottom of that site , there are about 6 languages to choose , and there are a few different web domains used by the autoscout eg: www.autoscout24.de .... www.autoscout24.pl and youy can set display of "common car details" eg HP weight in any language , but description is almost always in german language becouse its german site

In my IE that was set as a deafault language


But my goal with that anoncment was to show the difference in prizes europe vs usa for tha same car

Wrong. M3 seats have horizontal stitching.
