Shit, I'll resurrect a dented out M3. I'll even fix rust damage.

Though, at this point, my E46 is looking so enticing now that I know how to work on it.

Feel free to come up to Jersey and practice fixing the rust damage on my e30's any time! :-D

Not an e30 sighting, but just as cool. Couldn't resist posting these. Found in Englewood Cliffs, NJ today on my way up to Alpine.

I tried to take it, but they wouldn't let me. At least it's not gonna rust.

e30 tax son, they won't be getting any cheaper. An evo3 sold for over $100k a month ago. Regular e30s up here are going for 3-9k depending on mods and condition.

Swapping to my E46 and selling my E30 as-is is starting to look very enticing.

I should start buying up all the cheap e30's around here and bring them there to sell.

F that. People buy E30s now but have SUPER high standards for them. No one buys barely running cars let alone a sitting shell. They'll pay $10k for an E30 but it better be pristine.

When I was trying to sell my car as an S52 turbo for freaking $8k, some guy had the balls to comment on the cosmetics. FUCKER this car makes over 500whp. You don't find that for under $10k very often.

How much would one with an m52 be worth? I can get my hands one one of those engines locally for $200.

I don't even know anymore. 4-5k? Some people are M20 purists so the value doesn't necessarily go up. Thanks Tony.
