I have two, a 95 with an s54 and a 98 sedan that's stock. It was fun and convenient to have two of the same car for a while, but it's kinda meh after a while. I've been looking to sell the sedan.

If I could find a higher mileage Estoril Blue coupe for track duty, that would be awesome. I unfortunately got too attached to my Techno coupe.

But the way prices are going, I don't see that happening. Plus I already have too many cars to try to maintain

No guarantees I'll be ready by then though either.

Seriously though, if I came across an LTW or a GT in a few years, or a perfectly spec'd euro spec (techno/cloth/3.2/manual/low KM) I'd pick one up and sell this after I pulled off the parts I wanted to keep. I can't understand having 2 of the same car, but its also due to life in Vancouver being one of ridiculously minimal space. Parking spots are about 30k+ here for value, and 1 bedroom condos being well over 500k, its hard to find a place to put a second car.
I always love seeing pictures of your car, one of my favorites on here. I totally understand your situation though. Fortunately where I live it isn't too hard to find a house with at least a 2 car garage.

I also have an E30 though so that takes up time and space as well.

Ya know- honestly I wouldn't be too against a regular e36 either. Maybe pick up a clean one to mess around in and then LSx swap it down the line.

THIS!!!!!!!

I would love an LSx swapped E36. An acquaintance of mine got an LM4/LM7? I honestly donít remember the engine code I just know itís an all aluminum 5.3L that he paid $1,000 for and swapped it in with SS heads and a vette intake manifold. BEAST of a car, itís honestly mind blowing.

One E36, two E46s, and maybe one E90/2. Two E46s and one E36 might happen soon. I'm considering purchasing two bone stock M3s, a 1999 black/black 3/2/5 with just under 100k miles and a 2004 red/red 6MT with 82k miles.

I own one.

If I had more space and funds I would get a mint, low mile, stocker. Then I would mod my current car a bit.

With the limited funds and space I have I want some diversity in my collection. I like to many things to have duplicates.
