  1. If you guys haven't guessed, David is my teenage son. They say this addiction can be hereditary. I have 2 that can attest to that, and my wife thinks we're all nuts. We have a three E34 family among other BMWs. RobZR
  2. clean rot-free E36 Ti https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/260631952541380/
  3. Inflation must be sky high when a 300k mi E34 goes for 63k.😵 Mine should be worth at least half of that.😁 This build and auction has thrown the valuation of modded BMW's upside down. we all have learned for years, that you start a custom build on a high mileage shell is a recipe for financial ruin. Jason has shown us the right way to build and promote such a project. at the end of the day if you can't get a few people that really want what you have built in the room. it can be all for not. We've seen a few well built and promoted modded cars like RVAE34's lsx E39 touring and Mattymatt's E34 touring. But, the common theme is the touring brings in the money. Not since 540keith's calypso e34 has a non M5 E34 sedan brought in any money, until now.
  4. Since, the m60b44 designation was never used by BMW, and if a TU short block was used for the frankenmotor I could see their confusion. In my view, it's better without the vanos. I would venture the car has had a respray in it's life since it had north of 250k before the Frankenstein conversion/restoration. It's great props to Jason's restoration and the Socal climate that it looks this unbelievable now. The detail pics are just mind boggling. The black wood trim, the euro touches like the drivers glove box, etc. Who goes and reupholsters new racing seats with m-cloth and adds seat heaters on a tuner build. You have to know these cars well to see the little details.
  5. The Ultimate E34 is for Sale. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1995-bmw-540i-32/ one of these days I'll get mine that clean.

    Nice pick up, TJ another E30 to the stable.
  7. and another for the "Why would you" category. Why of all the E34's you could import, you would choose the most anemic of them all, and find one in a touring. it looks in great condition, but it's screaming for a heart transplant. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/4272066486150482/
  8. Another Alpine E30 https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/326827328810974/
  9. Not mine, but I inquired when it was selling at $3500, but was ~50th inline. The bidding went over $10k. Definitely keeping an eye on this one, I expect it to go over $20k.
  10. Another E30 time capsule. Beautiful, but is this what they're worth now? https://milwaukee.craigslist.org/cto/d/delafield-1986-bmw-325/7320486896.html
  11. Nice find!! Rot-free examples with any paint on them are becoming unicorns these days. The lack of need for the blue tip wrench will pay you back for the long trip in no time. We just swapped the exhaust on my son's E34 540i. it took all day to cut the mid-pipe and cats out of my rustbelt parts car. 45 min to drop the straight pipes from his and another hour to put new exhaust back on. the differences in time are staggering. You feel like your cheating or something when you put a wrench on it and it just comes apart.
  12. BMW V12 maintenance "12 of everything and 2 of everything else" The dream car of my youth could/would turn into the midlife nightmare, since I can't just say "Mike, fix it" it sure looks clean with just the right touches 🤤
  13. who doesn't love a manual E31 https://kansascity.craigslist.org/atq/d/kansas-city-1991-bmw-850i-speed/7307950485.html
  14. A clean e34 540i/6 that's less then a thousand miles away, just needs some love https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/868032823768422/ I'd be all over it if I didn't have 3 already.
  15. To think 10 years ago I was about to buy one like it for half the price, and i thought it was expensive. Bought the roadster instead. What a fool. Even the non-M shoe's are getting pricey these days.
