Anyone know of this 318is?

http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/cto/4801997268.html

Somewhat tempted to buy it just because I'm tired of waiting to find a 325is. I'll just swap an M20 in there, but curious as to if anyone has checked it out or seen it before.

Thanks in advance for your feedback!

Also, if anyone can chime in on the difficulty of the swap to M20B25 that'd be great. I've done an S50 swap and can't imagine it's more taxing than that.

Damn, that's a pretty decent lookin car. Fairly priced considering how crazy prices are getting these days.

Clean looking sport interior, slicktop, straight body with non faded paint. If its that clean in person Id probably jump on it with some haggling because Im cheap. If youre swapping and have done a s50 before whats the reason behind doing a m20? Just being curious.

That is a tempting car. Let us know if you go take a look at it.

you could spend a lot more than that to get an interior and exterior that look that good. slicktop means a lot less water issues too. some suspension work could make that a great car, but again it all depends on what its like in person. is there any indication of mileage?

I want an M20 with a low boost set-up this time. I like the balance of an M20 more than the S50.

That's cause I drive race karts though so I'm really picky on weight haha.

Sorry to tell you but this is probably what happened. Don't post until it's in your garage

It's been on Craigslist about a month. I'm surprised it lasted this long.

It's a CRG thing you wouldn't know if you raced Rotax Jr. with a Tony Kart set up.

M42s can't get any respect...I really like them for city cars.
