oh man, I'm sorry. As a son that's wrecked a car or two in his day, I can tell you that your son is probably thinking about falling on his sword right now.

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

Its totaled. I have settled with the insurance jsut waiting on the check. I still have the car since that was the deal I worked out with the ins company. I have 2 offers on the car as it sits and its still drivable and drives perfect. The worst damage was the rocker panel took a bad hit. I am selling the car. It only has 128000 miles on it.

How much are you selling for?

Is the engine nikasil or alusil, and is it auto or 6 speed?

Yea I do like the BMW's. I have 3 now and I am in the market for an e30 is for my youngest son. I figure by the time he and I get it all fixed up he will be 16. I bought one a BMW on a fluke about 8 of 9 years ago because I thought I could make a few bucks from reselling it and just fell in love with the way they drive. I am also looking at getting rid of the Cabiro and get a e34 540i 6 speed manual.
