Does this have power windows in the front and cranks in the back?
Very clean by the way

Damn. They sell for ~5k back home. If this sells I'm getting into import and export

Hi,

It does have electric windows up front and wind up windows in the back. There is something so cool about wind up windows on an E30 and something so convenient about not having to dangerously lean across the cabin to wind down the passenger window when it's hot.

Unusually for a Euro car, this car does have AC that was disconnected when I bought it. All the parts are there but I haven't hooked it up and charged it yet.

And to the answer the question: is it worth ten thousand more than a nice 325is? Absolutely. First of all when I was looking for a 325is I had a really hard time finding one under 100,000 miles. And with a clean interior and nice paint?

Then consider what it is worth to have a lighter car with euro bumpers. Spend thousands to convert a US car's bumpers? Or buy ill fitting, inauthentic fiberglass that take a body shop ages to paint and fit?

Now what does an S14 engine cost?

How about finding a dogleg close ratio Euro gearbox?

And a 4.22 diff?

Add it up.

But all that are just parts of the whole. It is the rarest S14 model ever made. A true collector car that nobody else will have or even have heard of. If notoriety is important in your decision than this is not the car for you. It is subtle, elegantly european, and sedanishly practical. And it also screams to redline with the fastest acceleration of any BMW E30 ever made. 242 pounds less weight than an M3. More rigid due to the B pillar. It is the quickest, most nimble, and rare E30 you will find in America. What's that worth on top of the parts list?

This thing is awesome. Best example of a strait from the factory sleeper.

Thanks! It's a fireplug of a sleeper.
