If it is a pile of crap, it's still got value in so far that it's a manual coupe with a non airbag dash, and those clear tail lights 😀 

As a base for a track car, it would be perfect. You won't lose money on it

Here’s another 328i Motorsport Coupe that popped up on TradeMe yesterday - will be interested to see where the pricing ends up. This one’s a factory manual and NZ New. Doesn’t look to be as tidy as the Estoril example, but still appears to be honest.

I sold that to him. Very honest car. Has had money spent in the right places, a very good car mechanically. 

He has spent a fair bit of time and effort tidying it up, was pretty rough when I got it from a friend 

 

To think a couple years ago that car owned me less than 4k, after I spent 1500 in parts on it 🤦‍♂️ I made the wrong decision selling it

Looks good, little finishing required but surprisingly tidy inside and love that colour on an E36.

Nice to see good, honest detailed descriptions too.

That's strong money, good result for the seller.

I wonder what people who pay this sort of money for one of these plan to do with them.

I should have bought it back. 

But I don't think it would be comfortable to live in after the missus breaks my legs and nose

E36 chancers coming out of the woodwork now!

$13,500 for a Silver sedan in reasonable condition:

$15,000 for an average looking coupe with a G220 conversion and Triangle tyres:

Also saw a pretty rough 318i Vert on Facebook for $12,500 yesterday and a white 320i sedan that 'could use a respray if you're fussy' for $10k - Hilarious.

As a slightly fastidious owner, it does niggle me a bit when people don't see the value difference in their average car and mint, fully sorted one.

@Sammo very classy of the seller to make some racist Uber driver comments on that first one.

Second one has some potential but a shame that it’s not a ZF.

To think I turned down a 14k factory manual 328i coupe a few months back that was actually tidy as I thought it was a bit pricey for what it is.

The problem really is that people buy them, not the dreamers that sell them. Unfortunately with my purchase of an e30, I’ve become part of that problem 😂. Although, with the price that is being listed now (even just a few months after) for other e30s, I feel like I got a bargain 😆.

Yeah, I saw that comment - sad to see what people say on a public forum, makes you wonder how they are behind closed doors.

I'm not really seeing too many people buying these average and overpriced cars TBH? Keep seeing the same sedans on FB pop up time and time again for more money than they failed to sell for previously...I've been watching pretty closely to get a gauge on how poor a financial mistake I'm going to make 🤣

Assuming you're not having too many issues with yours, its certainly looking like a deal given coupe / M52 / Manual in a good colour. 

Im factoring just about any E30 I buy is going to to need $10k plus on it to get up to standard.

FACT.

Yeah you’re right about that as well. The fun bit is working on it, although have had a few head scratching moments already 😂. Probably will keep rising as supply vs demand but I wonder if it’ll be a bit more relaxed as borders open.

If they're claiming that coupe has an "average interior" with mismatched seats, trashed driver seat, trashed mismatched center console, mismatched door cards and dash, faded rear seat and faded parcel tray, I reckon they would be pretty easy to please 

Could probably fold their hand around a dog turd and convince them it's a taco

What a mess.

Interesting - fantastic colour and factory manual helps but will be interesting how much its average condition and lack of WOF / Cert holds it back...
