  • 88 E30 M3 EVO II - not mine

    Saw this today: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=861769

    But its not an EVOII, its a US car with an Evo2 motor. Big difference between the real deal and a US car with an EVO motor. Don't get me wrong, its a nice looking car, but I think its being improperly marketed. Its got lots of nice parts as well. Its still not the real deal.

        I think he had posted a problem with the low dyno numbers? Caveat emptor

            It specifically says the Evo II engine was imported from Europe, i.e. it was added later on
            now you know why I didn't want to advertise it on this forum
            I wasn't going to advertise it as a "1988 US spec E30 M3 with Evo II engine imported from Europe."

            What does low dyno numbers have to do with anything? Is the value of a car based on how much power it makes?

              Please disregard my post - my apologies. I had assumed you had engine problems but it's not my buisness to comment on your sale, especially in a public forum. Too late to delete unfortunately :/

                Why not ? This is an accurate statement.

                  Because I don't need to write the entire story of the car in the thread title
                  all those details are in the text.
                  its funny how I get all these complaints on this forum, while on the 2 other forums I put the car on, not a single negative comment.
                  i also love how all the people complaining about to exact wording, aren't interested in buying the car.

                  Next time I need advice on how to bash a for sale thread
                  i'll be sure to come here

                    No problem
                    no the car doesn't have any engine problems, it's just not putting out the max power it can achieve.
                    car runs like a champ and was my daily driver for about 8 months, and daily driver split duty with my audi for the other 3 months
                    never had a single mechanical issue with the car

                      I knew the car when James owned it. He loved to drive it but boy did it need paint back then.

                        I met him recently at a car show at RRT, went and showed him the ECU that had "property of James muskopf" on it
                        he said I can't believe I'm seeing this car again.
                        he also mentioned the paint, but it had been repainted by the next owner after him.
                        My car won the best classic BMW award
                        funny how the car used to be in Reston, Va.
                        went to NY, then back to Reston, VA
                        and the second owner who had it after James, had to sell it because he was traveling to Egypt.
                        and I am Egyptian

                            I wasn't complaining. I was simply agreeing that the thread title "FS 1988 E30 M3 Evo II" is not entirely accurate.

                            I agree you explain as much in the text of the ad.

                            Don't take my slight criticism of your advertising skills as a slight on your car. You obviously put a lot of time, money and effort into your car, it shows well and will undoubtedly sell for close to, if not your full asking price. If I were looking for a third E30 M3, this would be at the top of my list.

                              I've been lusting after your wheels if you ever decide to part them out. Otherwise, GLWS!
