Or maybe it's a minty M3 with an m20 24v head laying in the trunk... Never know.

Supposedly the only thing it needs is a dizzy, and the owner might be willing to part with it for scrap value. omg I'm so excited! That would make a sweet DD while I take my 325is off the road to finally get some serious work done to it. It's a 4 door, but I can live with that for that kind of price. :-)


15 months later that car is still sitting in the same spot. I talked to the shop owner again today, and he said there's a good chance the owner is gonna bring him the title soon. Fingers crossed!

I didn't know they put rear headrests in e30's. This car is the only example I have ever seen.

I thought it might have been a 4 door thing, but my 85 318i doesn't have them. Not that I'm ever gonna sit back there, but I think it looks better with the headrests.

Bleh, I like the greenhouse effect of no headrests or passenger seat!
