the owner of the car is a mechanic at a BMW dealer about 30 miles away
I see him regularly on the roads
some time ago I saw his car parked at the dealership employee lot, and I had a look at it. It's the worst maintained M3 I've seen yet. The car inside is littered with trash and tons of cigarette buds, there's ash in every corner, dash is cracked, the leather seats are torn.. the outside looks about as bad
the passenger side mirror has no glass in it, the exhaust is rusty...
everytime I see this guy I want to punch him in the face

Thats the way the general public feels about my cougar, or my old SVO mustang. Both are becoming rare, especially well maintained ones. Glad you and the car are ok buddy.

I think that she may need rescued


Not that I promote stealing a car. Especially an e30 m3...

But seriously you should take her from him.

denyo, from what i understand about Europeans is that they dont appreciate older cars as much as we do. to them an old car is just that, an old car.

although, you would think that the original M3 would be the exception to the rule. . .

ok, steal it please.

+1. To the European eye that car is equivalent to an 86 Mustang 5.0. Steal and ship internationally immediately.

ah come on...you're crossing a line there, buddy... and how would you know how Europeans think about older cars?

Stealing may be a good idea
but maybe I'll try to get hold of him some evening in a dark alley and just punish him for abandoning his car like that
j/k
but he doesn't want to sell the car...my brother once asked him.

Your Ride: STILL SEARCHING FOR ANOTHER BMW
I know first hand how you all feel.

July 6th I lost my '89 325i due to being rear ended by a Toyota Avalon. Guy was doing at least 50 km/hr. Folded the car from the rear fenders back, spare tire was wedged in so hard that even after deflating it, it was still very difficult to remove it. Why the glass didn't shatter is beyond me. $10,661 damage.

Toyota was written off. Everything from the front windshield foward GONE.

But, I managed to get $5500 CDN for my car, then proceeded to buy a 1994 530i for $4400, and it included winter rims and tires with BMW hubcaps. Interior great, exterior pretty damn good.

But I'm gonna miss my '89.
