  1. 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.
  2. where do I remember that wheel from? ohh, here is the original. The Knight Industries 2000
  3. it's not in the German psyche to admit defeat. They will double down on the design in making the grills even more Lexi like with a large tooth gap.
  4. Did't figure it would last long. Laguna Seca Blue wasn't available on the clown shue till '01 in S54 cars and those are through the stratosphere since they only made 41 of them. In Cosmos Schwartz its one of ~500 S52's, not pedestrian in its own right. all the cool factor for half the price. edit: even less then Half the price since EAG just paid $75k for a real LSB shue. wow.

  8. Cheep thrills!!! https://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/cto/d/rowlett-bmw-z3-super-charged-reliable/7084305542.html
  9. beautiful long roof E34, my ultimate family truckster , but this one seems to have a past like Hoovies Bentley
  10. The Clown Shoe looks clean, the two tone interior was standard, though imola/black wasn't common on a black shoe. grey/black and estoril/black were more common 2tone on these. This one looks like it has a history of changing hands every few years. but, it shows nicely for a New England car. Price is'nt to crazy for a nice driving shoe. https://www.mcoupebuyersguide.com/listing?ListingID=20056 https://www.mcoupebuyersguide.com/listing?ListingID=19746 https://www.mcoupebuyersguide.com/listing?ListingID=1822
  11. beige or not I'd rock this: $$$ a little steep but it's a unicorn. https://seattle.craigslist.org/tac/cto/d/puyallup-2008-bmw-535xit-6mt-e61-sports/7025970104.html Bought not Built https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/cto/7027436830.html Honest S54 vert ? https://sacramento.craigslist.org/cto/d/sacramento-2003-bmw-m3-6-spd-manual/7033810912.html
  12. A Mechanic's dream or a fools money pit. B7 https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2469281313189606/
  13. The plate is a "in transit" plate used for transport to and from auction by many dealers.
  14. The bored and stroked block on this monster just doesn't leave enough deck between the bores for a happy head gasket. Swap the block for a m62B44 and using the s62 crank you got a nice 4.7l M60 franken motor. Less headaches then integrating the S62 electronics. But that's been done before as well.
  15. To many projects. I'd be all over it if I didn't have (2) E34 540i/6 already. And 8 vehicles (6 BMW's) has stretched the spousal approval factor to the limit. "if you bring another car in the yard, it better be an RV, cause you'll be living in it" rings every time a deal like his comes up. I've seen this car go up for sale ~8 years ago. The original owner was a doctor and had it built as a street/track car. It's got all the track toys. The M60 was bored and stroked to extreme. He took it out a couple of times and blew the head gasket. Rebuilt it with upgraded gaskets, ran it a few more times and blowing it again. Fed up with the ordeal, he put it up for sale. I was to late to the deal and the current owner bought it. I found my calypso car a year later. He proceed to check everything and replace the head gaskets yet again. ran it for a few months and blew the head gasket again. That was last I heard of this car, 'till it came up for sale as is now about 3 mo ago for ~$6500. now he's down to a more realistic $3000. On paper this thing is a Beast, in reality the motor is a nightmare. as Paul Harvey said "and that folks is the rest of the story"
