  • Phoenix Yellow Coming home

    My 1988 E30 M3 IP club racer is coming home. I bought it in 2015 from Dr. Tony Huggins out of North Carolina. It was painted by Steve Bassen of Bassen Autobody and engine / mechanics by Billy Reevis of Motorsport Connections. I always loved this car. Dogleg gearbox, powerful 2.5 with Alpha N, Bimmerworld white paint inside engine bay, cockpit and trunk. I sold it to pursue a non Phoenice Yellow race car. While it wasn't a mistake to pursue another E30 M3 race car I always regretted letting this car get away. I pickup tomorrow. Here is a pic of our first day together back in 2015 and I'll upload a pic from tomorrow when I pickup.

    Immediate plans for the car. Change the number to 315, wrap it in some other color, throw a set of DTM wheels on, change the suspension to MCS Remote and change front brakes brakes to E36 M3. This car was only ever a suspension change away from greatness. It was too stiffly sprung and I never got around to finishing it.

      I need the 15" wheels for club racing. The 17" will just be for track day fun and car shows.

        Evan, I have some 15" Revolutions with RA1s on them if you're interested. Send me a PM. The RA1s are just wheel protection at this point though (too old).

          Is this the one that you scooped on BaT for like $11? Stands out as my "most regretted non-bid" if it's that one.

            Wasn't this on BAT years ago? I really wanted to buy it then. It went for such a steal back in the day.

              Haha, I see the fish story is growing.

              $23k and it didn’t have a title I got the latter taken care of quickly though. Vermont loophole Easy

                Keep the color! It looks good. What suspension/springs were on it before? MCS makes great stuff.

                Do not buy from "Low Level"!

                  I don't even know what's on it now. It doesn't have much give, nothing like my other E30 M3 race car with AST suspension.

                  Thanks for the vote for Phoenix Yellow. The car will be going in for updates shortly and hope to be ready for the spring.
