You used the E30 Trans, correct? Just wondering if you clearanced the bell housing to access the oil pan bolts, as the E30 Trans gets slightly rotated when mated to E36 engines. I didn't do it to mine, and I wonder if the new owner has had to do an oil pan gasket, he'll definitely be in for a surprise.

Car looks great, but price seems a little high. I sold my S52 E30 that was California SMOG legal for only $8k.

Good luck, I know its a fun car!

Yes the Getrag G260 is the stock M20 trans. If you are asking about the lower 4 baby trans bolts then no - they do not fit into this trans. The oil pan gasket is new however when the engine was rebuilt. All the bolts for the oil pan are back in where they should be. Price is OBO - but fair I think. This car has new everything all the way through - I mean I replaced damn near every bushing this car has - its just really well sorted. Thanks!

Wow, that's a high asking price for a non-M E30!

for $9500 I'd buy a faster E36 M3 or E46 330i with nicer bodywork. Hopefully somebody really wants an M50 swap E30. Good luck with the sale.

Well a M3 is like 20-30K. You could have a clean stock e36 m3, but it wont perform like this car. Its a starting price. Obviously I am very open to offers. I am looking for a clean late model truck and am open to trades as well.

Thanks!

OP, place an ad here if you haven't done so already.

FYI, you're going to regret selling it. I know from experience.
Yes. I am active on both R3v and e30tech. As well as others. I dont know. I really want to get back into sportbikes. Maybe when I am done with school I can take the time to build another one. It should be faster the second time around - lol.
