    This one might fit the bill. But it is a vert. https://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/cto/d/rocklin-2004-bmw-m3-6spd-with-oem/6786410714.html

    That southern car will pay you back tenfold, when you start wrenching on it. No blue tip wrench necessary. Welcome to the insanity.

    E38s in da house?

    The maintenance isn't as bad as its made out to be. it's no E30, but not a nightmare like all the 7's that followed. The M62tu is a good engine, just plan on a shotgun repair for the whole timing guide, gaskets, and cooling system and she'll run forever. When I did the guides with 175k on the clock, i was surprised to find original grinding marks on all the cams with only the tips of the lobes polished smooth. Like the E30 and E34's most repairs are well documented online. Beisan systems has a great writeup I followed for the vanos/guides install. http://www.beisansystems.com/procedures/m62tu_vanos_procedure.htm A E38 sporty shorty is the the best looking 7' out there. If I had the time and resources to create one of these. I'd do it in a heartbeat. https://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/showthread.php?2388091-Estoril-blue-S62 https://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/showthread.php?2310123-RVAE34-s-next-E38-project

    I still have one. It has done us well. the wife has used it as "Moms Taxi" for a decade without major issues. I did the timing guides a few years ago. Time consuming project. but, not vary complicated. it took me 3 weekends to tear-down and replace. When you do it for your self your replace more stuff while your in there. The "taxi" has 228k on it now,. Has some rust around the corners, but starts and drives well. Will be getting out of the E38 biz this spring, once I get my e34's sorted.
  8. This has got to be goofiest looking E30 I've ever seen. https://losangeles.craigslist.org/sfv/cto/d/encino-1983-bmw-e30-m3-baur/6782366042.html

  10. S54 in a toasty box for a perfect e30 swap https://siouxfalls.craigslist.org/cto/d/2002-bmw-m3-fire-damage/6773676704.html More Laguna Grun? e30 https://orlando.craigslist.org/cto/d/1992-bmw-325i/6775009421.html
  11. Here is another more original , just not as nice https://losangeles.craigslist.org/lac/cto/d/1992-bmw-325i-e30-convertible/6770303796.html
  12. laguna green E30 s50 looks well done. https://fresno.craigslist.org/cto/d/1993-bmw-325ic-e30-24v-m3/6769866134.html
  13. NOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!😀 This seller has sold many clean BMW's. his usual outlet is on BAT. this one looks like a great personal build, but with a high mileage chassis resale is problematic. probably not cool enough for BAT Awesome build never the less.
  14. how do you feed the rodent in there. and in bronzit. that has to be the most underwhelming perfect e34 I have ever seen. it's like opening the hood of a '69 Mustang fastback and seeing the tiny straight six in it.
  15. '93 316iT nice to see these coming over to our shores. https://austin.craigslist.org/cto/d/euro-1993-bmw-e30-touring/6736080932.html
