      Saw that last night. What a waste. They parted the car, but should have left the chassis and body as a whole. There is always someone looking for a shell or even a rolling chassis.

          The entire front end of the car was destroyed.

          The bummer is that they truly hack-job'd the split. Cut right through headliner/carpeting/etc.

          That can be attached to a good front clip, at the factory joints (they did preserve this when they cut the car) and be just as good as an original chassis. Yes, its a lot of body work. Yes it would require a good mechanic/body shop who knows how to do it correctly. No, its not cheap.

          Spray paint and tire shine doesn't equate to a "restoration!"

                bodywork

                It is such a waste to finish off such a nice car, I dunno. Over there in US you guys can buy the cars dirt cheap but have to scrap off such nice cars because of high workmanship prices I guess. Over here in the 2.5th and 3rd world, such cars are very expensive, but you can get a damaged car such as this one running for like 1000 bucks, and it will be just like brand new.

                    The saddest line in the auction:

                    "We parted out about 10 E30 M3's a few months ago."

                    So how many are left in the US now?

                      That would be a lot of work to rebuild but not rediculous considering the cost of e30 m3 rolling shells that are straight it is not a waste. It would not be that difficult to take a early e30 chassis and swap the 1/4's rear roof/glass. The rest is bolt on and you could even find a e30 with out a sunroof.

                      As far as the carpet and headliner are concerned anyone doing a proper resto will either replace them or not use them. I opt for the later.
