This thing will probably ask used gt3 pricing / north of 6 figures.My wild guess is it'll end the listing at around 130k. Looks super clean and enthusiasts will chop an arm and leg off for one of these things now.

Wow that will be interesting to watch. I have a soft spot for that model, when I was a kid a neighbor had a pristine one and that was the car that got me started on the car crazy lifestyle . I would walk by it and just stare. Lol.

I was actually the winning bidder. Of course it's raining non-stop all week so I'll pick it up from The Drivers Source later. Think I did pretty well 🙂

Not sure what part of Houston you are in, but I'm near Kingwood and would love to meet up and see it; on a sunny dry day of coarse.

Congrats on the purchase. I've recently looked at some used F82 with 10k miles that weren't in as good a shape as these photos depict. Someone let this car sit untouched for some time.

I'm going to drive it! 🙂 I'll get it concours ready. None of that paint correction or ceramic coating. Just good ole Carnauba wax. Thinking of dry icing the undercarriage to get all that cosmaline off.

I just paid for it but keeping it in the showroom and took a buddy with me who is an avid car collector and he was blown away by the condition of this E30. It really is a time capsule for being 100% original and unmolested.

That classic certificate to get issued from bmw of numbers matching is not easy to attain.

Awesome and congratulations. I got a numbers matching C3 Vette, but getting a certificate from the Heritage Society is harder than it seems because they want showroom condition. Sounds like you got a great toy. By the way, is it at Gateway Classic Cars or another company in town?
