S50 powered E30 M3 Price

Guys,

I am thinking about picking up on of these cars. Engine swap was done perfectly with a comprehensive replacement of many parts. Suspension is also well setup for HPDEs and autocross. Interior is in ok shape, but it is not a big deal. No rust, but car could use some paint.

What might be a great deal for this car? Seller wants $18K.

Cheers.

Wouldn't happen to be a red e30 in the tri-state area?

Is it a regular S50 or a Euro S50B32? If it's the former then I'd have to know a little more about it but if it's the latter then you'd better jump on that shit. Aside from the S38B38 and maybe the S54 it's the perfect motor swap option.

Sounds about right in terms of price. Make sure the swap was done by a reliable shop and be sure to check receipts.
