The car is a nearly perfect E30 which i had no intentions of selling until an E30 M3 became available to me. The only bad points are the carpet and headliner.
I have enjoyed the car very much over the 6 years I've had it. It has gone through quite a transformation in that time period as the photos show. I think they can represent the car better than anything i can write about it. If you have any questions please ask.
I am Asking $9,000.00 OBO.













The car now has a dyed vinyl rear seat to match the front.

The Sport Steering wheel will be replaced with a Mtech1 wheel.






Thanks for looking. If anyone is interested they can contact me through PM.

Love the retro shifter knob...nice looking car.  GLWS.

How'd you fit the E46 seats?  That looks truly awesome, not to mention comfortable.

The seats are fitted with adapter plates. They are very comfortable and hold you very well in the corners.
The wheels and tires are 16x8 et23 style 5s with 225/45/16 yokohamas.

Thanks for looking!

Also love the shift knob. Does it have a name, or did it come with a specific model? Just excellent all around.

Love the car, that is a most perfect "stance".  GLWS!  timothymcn, the shifter part # is  

25 11 1 220 823 M   It is a generic older style shift knob that doesn't come with an emblem.  You can put in a variety of emblems including the roundel, the motorsport logo, or a 5spd shift pattern.  Cruise ebay, I found an Alpina reproduction logo and put it on mine.  A "poor man's" alpina knob in a "poor man's" M3

That's a really gorgeous car.
Are the wheels redrilled or are you using adapters?
What kind of exhaust is that? Am i seeing two?

The car has a full E30 M3 5lug swap. Direct fit for the style5s.
The exhaust is a generic muffler made to be quiet with an electric exhaust cutout added after the resonator so it can be loud.
Its controlled by the e36 window switch seen here.


Thanks for looking!

Just curious about the e46 seats, did you make the adapter plates to fit them or did you buy them from somewhere?
