I'm really one lucky sob

I just did it.

I've bought another e30.





It's a 320iA slushbox - exactly what I've been looking for, because you can't find un-raced manual e30s in Germany for reasonable money.
It's an exact copy of my Touring - same build date (March 88), same interior (Antrazith), same original tranny... only it's a 4-door.

Now the best thing is the price: exactly 99420 miles, and really RUST-FREE except for one bit on the rear right wheel arch. Plus I've got another interior (4 seats) with it.


All that for 700 Euros. It really was THE cheapest sub-150000km car in GERMANY. And it was sitting in a barn just 10 minutes away.


The owner bought it a couple of years back, never drove it, just kept it in a dry, cool barn. He actually wanted to keep it till it would become a classic car, but his parents needed the space. He didn't seem to know much about cars in general.
Car was before that afaik regularly serviced at the dealership.


Guys, (and gals) this is such a great base to start off - engine and tranny swap will be in over the winter if I can find a good 6-cyl engine (S50, M50, S38, M54 come to mind), then suspension and all the stuff.
This might with a good chance become my future Ringtool.

Oh, and the crappy advert pics as I'll pick it up next friday (need short-term tags first). Better pics will follow.

I'm currently considering -as the body is so good on this car- to just keep it unmodified and sell it in a couple of years since e30 Prices are rising by about 10% per year. Since this car is worth about 1500 atm I'd have a nice interest, and instead buying a 2-door for the track since they're a lot stiffer.

We'll see when I put the 320i on the lift on Friday. But the first owner (I'm only the 3rd as it seems) had put a lot of effort into rust-proofing the car. The fenders, doors, the right tail piece, the trunk - completely rust free. I've never seen such a good e30 in my life. The rust on the right wheel arch is only from some cheaply fixed accident, but it's not too bad, maybe 2x2 inches.
