    This sounds like a really nice car. With all those goodies it's hard to put number on it though. It will have a lot to do with who owned the car, how well it was built and how well it was cared for.

    You may know this already, but because of where this car would be classified based on the existing mods it may need motor work to be compeditive. (I'm not an expert on club racing classification, maybe someone else can chime in here)

    It sounds like the current owner was on their way to building a nice track car, did the important suspension stuff first, then decided to sell before getting to the motor. Not a problem. But keep in mind if you plan on club racing this car, you're buying a work in progress and you should also consider the expense of finishing it off.

    My $.02
    Good luck, let us know how it goes.

      You;d be looking at JP for BMWCCA racing (dunno about hte slotted rear arms however), and a little engine work would defintely be needed to keep up with the JP E36 325is's out there. You would also want to loose some weight most likley (A/C, sounds deadening, carpet, headliner, etc).

      Increasing the value of E30 M3's everywhere - one shunt at a time.
