Once being a subscriber to the English magazine Practical Classics and Car Restorer I like this trend of newer classics.

I would doubt the 90s B14 SE-R/SE will ever be cool.  The B13 of course already is - as to where prices will go especially as I never see unmolested ones for sale who knows but I do often see a least one clean one running around the city.

Although years ago didn't GRM magazine mention someone was already remanufacturing AW11 interior bits? smiley

I've said it before but the journalist for CCC Art Markus had a very poor opinion on the handling of E30s outside of the M3.  But hey people like them.
