  • Record price for an s14? [email protected]#$t crazy

    This afternoon the auction just ended for this s14 motor and box at $27k...

    Is this a new record for a used (not rebuilt) motor?

    25 years and only had the crank turned a few times. The buyer still has 5% to BAT on top of the $27K. I'll bet the $ does not exchange hands. If it does, what am I missing other than a scam to drive up the E30 M3 prices higher.

      Agreed. I think the sale won't complete.

        No way it goes through. I posted this on the SIG thread, Winner / Buyer has no comments, no posts, no bids, no BAT history of any kind and joined this month.
        Gotta be a sham.

          It was bidding up to $11.5k, then 2 accounts bidding against each other drove it to $27.5k. No idea what the motivation was but there's little chance the winner pays.

            Well I agree it smells of a sham but BAT is normally free of this type of thing. Time will tell. I would prefer it was not real, just making the whole hobby smaller and exclusive.

              Something isn’t right, indeed.

              You could build quite the S14 for that price, and for a few grand more you could buy a complete car.

              The auction is either a sham or the bidders have mental problems and haven’t done any homework.

                  I paid $15,500 for a fully built 2.5 race motor last year. I guess I got a deal!

                      I think John in Germany was looking into it. It's only a matter of time. Common on other popular engines like the rb26, WRX boxer motor, and small/big block domestic stuff.
