There’s a lot I like about this 911sc in Texas: It’s a Euro 911 (about 25+ hp), doesn’t have a sunroof (nice weight savings), RUF bumpers front and rear (more weight savings), and the sexy RUF wheels (appropriately spelled as wheel$ in the post).

The bad news is that it sounds like the interior is a little rough and it’s been repainted. Plus I’m really not feeling the RS America wing. But considering the list of maintenance and relatively low miles for an SC (122k), $14.5k sounds like a pretty solid deal and definitely worth a look.

I’m including this project car out of self indulgence really. I’ve always been fond of the e21’s and especially the euro-only six cylinder models. This one has some really hard to get parts on it already and should make for a nice project.

1989 BMW e30 M3 w/ 70k miles for sale on Roadfly
Update: This listing has long since expired. Check out these other e30 M3’s for sale right now:
1989 M3, silver over gray with 70k miles. 2nd owner since 2001 with no accidents and clean title. Mechanically strong with most of the service records. All original body panels, original paint except for front bumper and rear wing. Tasteful mods include Mille Miglia wheels with Kuhmo Ecstas, Zimmerman cross drilled rotors with Hawk HP plus pads, stainless steel brake lines w/super blue, Supersprint center section w/Borla exhaust, Bilstien shocks w/H&R sport springs, front & rear Sparco strut braces, UUC short shift & clutch stop, Jim Conforti chip w/ Evo air box, E36 chain tensioner, oil pan baffle, Viper alarm & keyless entry, Alpine stereo w/eclipse amp & Sony sub.

If this car is in fact rust free, with records, and 70k miles… Well somebody in the midwest should get busy and head over to Illinois and grab this great buy. Not many e30 M3’s with this kind of mileage available for any less these days.
Edit: Does the paint color seem off between the back of the door and the back of the car?
