SOT: $100K E30 M3?


Recommended Posts

DTM is the German racing series for sedans. This is a street legal race car built to race car specs. Yes it probably cost near 100K to build...but you can probably get the same performance from a new M3....and save some money...now cool factor? Its probably worth some change...Imagine showing up to the local track event and your "little" 4 cylinder passes Vettes on the back straight...lol...

Deutche Tourenwagen Masters. I believe there are limits to the mods that all participating manufacturers had to follow and they had to be built in excess of 5,000? Not sure.

Where's the single wiper? Potter rods?? Can't imagine that car selling for anywhere near 100k. Need to subtract 20k for those headlight eyebrows and black grille... Awesome looking motor though. Fact is it's a u.s. spec w/ 107k miles.

I think it's a typical case of "I spent six figures on the car - so it must be worth six figures". Reality check.

Similar discussion on S14.net about this car - someone posted estimated costs for motor, suspension, bodywork, wheels, etc. and it still didn't add up to $100k.
