What's the current asking price? Is the S52 converted to OBD I, or still II?

I remember seeing this on Bimmerpost or CL whenever you first listed it. I can't remember what the rear suspension design was on the ti, I'm going to have to do some research. I also remember these were really light. Thanks!

I think the rear suspension is e36

Rear suspension is the same as an e30. They do have 5 lug hubs and a small diff. 

I cant remember if I had the factory or the Z3 medium case differential here. Most likely the later.

Thanks. I knew it was from an older generation.  Just didn't go far enough back

Asking price is $10,000 OBO

It's OBD2 and stock tune. Made 212whp in 4th gear. 

This has e30/z3 style rear suspension. It's been updated with M3 brakes and a 2.93LSD.

I'm interested, is there a build thread on this car?

I bought the car built. I've mostly just done maintenance over the years.

AC works?

Any DTCs?

ABS / TCS?

AC was serviced when the head was replaced last year. Blows cold and the heat blows hot. Fan motor resistor was replaced under my ownership.

ABS works perfectly. ASC was deleted.

Throws a code for the previously deleted SAP.

I put the car up on FB Marketplace. Every other message is asking to trade for something I don't want or asking what my lowest price is.

I have to take pauses from listing things on MP for exactly that reason. $20k boat for sale, I get messages offering a $4k ATV as a straight trade "if the boat checks out" or "would you take $9k, CASH?"

Well, I only take cash, so not a motivator...and "no".

All I'll say is GLWS and wish I had bought this instead of my BRZ for the same price, which immediately blew the engine on me lol

Rad little car. As a purveyor of one too many BMWs of this era I am tempted to inquire further, will reach out once I have full forum access!

It must be a bitter sweet moment.

I know you loved that car, and you must also be excited that someone else is going to love it too.
