Still think that had the S52 swap been done and everything else left as it was the car would sell for more...

No doubt it would have. Just look at the auction history - good clean swaps pull good dollars. Boy racer track toys have had a struggle at times. Im guessing they are trying to do this only because the article in Performance BMW.

Bring a Trailer Auctions, E30 edition

Im not seeing anything that is irreversible (though Im on my crappy iPhone) just a lot of cheap upgrades. All of which are easily reversed, and the red interior I dig.

Geez seriously, the hesitation? I stopped just short of saying you know, basic mechanic stuff you should be able to diagnose if youve EVER worked on cars. But we all know they are now the kind of buyers that pay someone to change wiper blades.

I test drove that car and seriously considered buying it, but was not looking for a Vert. Slightly more than I wanted to spend also. The car runs really really smoothly.

The shop price is $125 an hour. So it adds up quick gents.

25K and people are commenting that the winner "stole" it at that price...

I'm doing it wrong I guess.
