Easily rectified with a plastic bumper swap. 88's are the only year that can swap and have either.

FWIW, the alum bumpers are actually getting more attention lately as EVERYONE wants/has plastic


no, it actually still has it's original VIN on the fender. The passenger side one is the one that was replaced.

The interior is pretty nice. The dash is original and has no cracks. I had to replace both front seat belts as the passenger side didn't retract properly

thanks for the feedback. For those prices, I'm better off just keeping the darn thing and putting some work into it to make it more show-quality than a daily driver

cheers!

If you have a clean e30, that you know the history of and is well put together, I can't see it being worth selling it. I mean, its harder to find a nice e30 than it is to make 4-5k towards your next car purchase IMO. Swap out the bumpers, throw some H&Rs on there and it will already be a stunner.

^^haha! yeah, that interior looks super clean. The fender color does look off in the pic. That would be a fun little project car.

looks good

I do think the stock basket weaves or the Euro weaves will complete the look.

is that an actual pic of your car or just what it shows on site? Curious cuz it says "Roadfly" on the watermark.

Bought this car several years ago when I was in university. Since then I've kinda lost interest. Car is grey with sport cloth seats and no tears etc. Car has never been smoked in, in my ownership and that goes back to 2003. Car is fully loaded for the year with only leather as the only option not selected

Car is a grey coupe with ALL maint done. JUST got it back from the shop where I had the head gasket, valves cleaned, head machined, and a new rad all installed as well as all associated parts (new timing belt, tensioner, water pump etc.)

Since I've owned it, I've also completed the following:

New front control arms and bushings (m3 e36 centered bushings)
Complete clutch kit
rebuilt shifter bushings
new rear sub frame bushings
rebuilt driveshaft with replaceable u joints
new brakes all around (pads and rotors)
Euro smiley headlights with blue citilights
Borbet type C wheels in 16 inch
8 speaker OEM stereo with Sony MP3 deck (all properly wired)
new antenna mast (extends/retracts as it should)
rebuilt drivers door lock with working double lock feature

blah, blah, blah



I'm asking this here, since most users are from the LML and know the value a little better than anywhere else in Canada.

thanks for the help guys
I had an 89. I bought it for $1500 and drove it for about 6 months then sold it for $2500. It was pretty beat up and had a rebuilt engine but all I had to do was oil changes to keep it healthy. Yours is in a lot better shape then mine. Id say if it runs and has no major issues then an 8/10 mine was probably 5/10, so expect around $3500 to $5000 to the right buyer.
