1990 E36 powered E30 BMW M3

This is a really clean looking custom M3. The work looks well done. The tri-color stitched interior shows hardly any wear in the pictures. The bright red paint is gleaming off the widened fenders.

The owner who commissioned the custom work clearly had a good vision. The conversion and modifications appear well done and not hap-hazard at all.

125k on the chassis, 8k on the rebuilt engine, and 1k since completion, it would seem that the owner didn’t get a real chance to enjoy the fruits of their labor or their cash.

One thing I don’t particularly think was necessary, even though it is clear they were going for an Evo, DTM look, is the big Evo II Motorsport deck spoiler. I also could’ve done without the carbon hood, but the stock hood is included. I’m not saying it looks bad, but it kind of puts the car in that half street look half track look and I’d rather see full fledged one or the other. Another example is it has a full roll cage (track look), but also has a lighted gear knob (street look).

As long as I am being picky, and I am, really I think the car looks pretty sweet, but I have a pet peeve about the folks who go to so much trouble to make a great looking car and then hang their custom exhaust crooked. I’ve seen far worse, but this one is off a touch. Not a big deal, but this is something I’ve always been particular about on my rides.

  1. Lots of work and exclusive parts on this one, but $30k sounds pretty lofty. I’ll be curious to see where this ends up. Right now ~$17k with a little over a day to go.

    dc

  2. Cars been for sale for quite a while IIRC he started with a buy it now in the middle 40’s a couple months ago. Its not going anywhere at 30K.

  3. Mid $40s? That’s a guy who doesn’t really want to sell his car.
