Yes, crack pipe for sure. Saw that and shared with a few people how ludicrous it is.

IMHO, given that car is not a Sport Evolution, I appraise at $100K, not a penny more.

No price listed, Make an offer. Could probably pick this one up for a couple hundred bucks. Sounds like he might be parting out if you need any black interior pieces.

Looks like fun... Imola, ZHP look, Manual, Twin Screw. Needs wheels IMO

Didn't know that you could select special colors when I ordered mine, but I wouldn't have paid $2000 for paint anyway. $475 for Metallic Paint was bad enough.

I didn't know that Hemmings had an auction site like BAT. I wonder if it would bring more money there?

If I was selling it, I would take the Supercharger, Exhaust, and Gauges all off and put on ZHP Wheels to complete the ZHP look.
The resale value is in the special paint color and I think that some buyers would worry about the extra stress that the drivetrain has had. At some point original, "unmolested" cars always bring more money.

Then again, if you could get it for a reasonable price, converting it to a ZHP drivetrain, Interior Parts, Shadow Line, Exhaust, Wheels, Brakes, and Suspension would be a really nice, rare car.

Neat overall, though a few details seem slightly overlooked, which is surprising. Like the zipties apparently holding the crooked oil cooler on. If that's a catch can in the drug bin the heater hoses aren't up to task, though it may also be a reservoir for the intercooler. I do like the hose pass though setup to the drug bin. Will be fun to watch where this one ends up.

And that crooked 335i badge would be the first thing to go...

That car should 100% absolutely be bought by someone like Obioban or NextelBuddy who already own Imola Red Ms and converted. There is no other logical use. Matching M3 stables rule.

I dunno, I can kinda get behind keeping it as-is with it's rarity and story. Although a full conversion would kinda finish the story...such a tough call!

Listing already removed; not surprised. If it’s in anywhere near decent shape what a find. 50 miles from me might as well be 5,000 thanks to Covid the border is closed otherwise I’d have been up there this afternoon.

Here is a solid find:

Clearly the seller is fed up, but I suspect that $400 for a recovered headliner, $150 in intake parts, some mussing with the axle boot, and everything would be sorted. Bet you could get it for $3k.
