Saw it on another site, definitely a pretty good car. Keep in mind this guy intended it to be for the track so it is going to be louder without the carpeting and other stuff. I also imagine that its going to be a rough ride if it was truly a track rat. I would think long and hard if you wanted it because you loose refinement and comfort the more track oriented you go.

^^ +1. Also you could always replace a few things if you wanted to tone it down a bit. Other than that it looks like a nice speedy car.

Looks very good. Still, I second Ex and Nick on what they said. I would consider it a weekend driver more than a daily driver because of all the performance additions he has made. Good luck and make a wise decision.

I like all the mods and how it looks on the outside. But i don't like how he striped the interior not carpeting, stereo and anything else. Is it expenisve to put all of that in? I don't care about ride quality either its my first car, so I want to it to be quick but not a complete piece of crap.

you can get an aftermarket stereo system for somewhat cheap, but i would image the carbet would cost quite a bit. im not sure tho. i would say just fuck the carpet, dont need carpet to have fun! my truck didnt have carpet, and my bug dosnt have anything(just the mettle floor pans) they are both a blast.

yeah. thats just how i work. as long as theres a drivers seat, its all good. i would check ebay(of course) for a carpet kit and see how much they run. but if i were you i would totaly buy that and worry about the interior later.

ah, finally considering an E30 now?

that car is kick ass, for a track car. like the others said, i would pay special attention to the fact that it was modded for the track. you might have to pay extra not only for creature comforts to be put back in like carpet, radio, and a/c, but also street legal. he took out the the high beam buckets, so who knows what else was stripped (sorry, didnt take the time to read the description, only looked at the pics )

other than that, you can probably get the carpets and stuff from a junk yard, if you can find a yard that has an e30.

well here is a good bit of info from the description:

Quote:
- The car has "non-operational" clear title, this was b/c previous owner used it as a true track car w/ no catalytic converter. I have since converted it into street legal car by installing high flow catalytic converter and is now safe to pass emissions. so this is not really an issue.

You can find seats front and rear easily and probably not spend a fortune, if you get it and want some info let me know. As far as carpeting you can probably find that or get a place to do it, i'm guessing slightly more money and the glove box might be an issue. You could find a stero to plug in pretty cheap but I wonder if your going to need speakers too, i'm guessing they are all out. that said you can probably find a decently fast e30 with an interior for the same amount of money, and even if you don't moding it for what you want is half the fun.
