Still one of my dream car. Just a very bad idea if you can't afford spending a lot of money in it.

I would love to be a good mechanic eventually and modify it how I think BMW should have made it (supercar instead of grand tourer, think M8 prototype).

I drive a 2000 Accord most of the time and a 2004 Mercedes SL65 on the weekends (traded in the porsche)[img]http://www.entertainmentfm.com/01.jpg[/img][img]http://www.entertainmentfm.com/28.jpg[/img][img]http://www.entertainmentfm.com/03.jpg[/img]

but the reality is that at this point they look incredibly dated and no one except BMW geeks know what this car is and you dont want to have sex with them anyway and now you have to find all these unobtainable parts with no payback I. sight...so you just say fuck it

To clarify I already had an e31 just want another one

And I'm not trying to get noticed, whole point in trying to pick up an e31 or NSX

Parts are easy, local mechanic has sourced me stuff with no issues on previous car

And why would I buy the car for payback?

Location:   Huntington Beach CA
VIN:   WBAAA230XKAE71594
Chassis mileage:
250,000
Engine type:   4.0 BMW V8 m60 (from 740i) with 60,000 miles

How long have you had the car? The chassis started out as an automatic 325i bought from an enthusiast in San Diego 4 years ago.

Describe the body condition: Its your average daily driver. Paint is original (7 out of 10), there are small dings and dents. Like every other e30 on the planet, the front two fenders have dents in them. Its a full function over form car. Its the fast car you can daily driver and not need to worry.

Describe the mechanical condition: Car is being daily driven. Runs great. All maintenance was done on v8 before it was swapped into the e30. Some of the maintenance items that were done are; Oil pan gasket, water pump, thermostat, thottle body gasket, new ccv, intake manifold gasket, runner tubes under the manifold, new trans guibo, etc. Only minor issue is 4th gear syncro is weak.

Included documentation: Title, some receipts, and radio manual.

What makes this car special? Its simple really. Its the garagistic v8 test mule Lela. This car literally wrote the book on swap. Its the perfect receipt: V8 + 6 speed + 2800lbs. Car is a phenomenal experience on the track. With the 60mm brakes in the front and close to 300lbs of torque on tap. Its epic.

Asking Price: $10,000


+1 for the M3 LTW wheels
-5 if they are replicas
-10 because they are white  laugh3-smiley.gif?1292867631

Those aren't LTW wheels. That car would scream, though.


Got back and here's what my neighbor has in his three parking spaces currently (note the "__-12" license plates across the board)

FWIW I'd get a stock NSX over an E31, and I even like that era of BMW's. I just don't like the 8-series.

are you renting a car with Hertz? see if they'll upgrade you to a Vette, AMG or Panamera...they're hella expensive to rent upfront but if you have a previous reservation and one of those cars is just sitting there, they'll usually put you in those for a smaller upgrade fee. the Vette 50th anniv I rented was $40 a day more, but the price probably varies by car and by demand

Without a doubt get the NSX. No comparison. What year are we talking? Any chance you can find a Monaco Blue? <3<3<3

Thoughts about that car?

I never liked the vast center consoles of the big 7s and how far you are from your lady. Like riding in a Hummer.
