Yeah, that 914 looks like it'd be a lot of fun.

I still miss it (though I'd take my 2013 over it). Here it is with (his) track wheels:

I'm not sure if he got the sidewalls right or if the diameter is a touch too small... His business.

AFAIK, it is on stock suspension (not PASM or R). Suspension travel is a good thing, and it still runs circles around most cars in turns.

Not on BaT, but this M3 looks pretty nice:

Mystic Blue 6MT coupe with 29,8xx. Rather high asking price at $41k.

very high price, that is low mileage e90/2 price. Maybe EAG spin off.

Now this one has my attention......

Ted - I am still looking at coming down in July. Just don't know when specifically....
I say that as I think I'll still be 'in the market' - I don't envision the NC car working out (too far away for me to be too energetic with bidding). So - I would still like to take a look at you car - if it works out

(I'll be trailering the E9 to Alameda and doing some other stuff while I am in the Bay Area).

I guess I have the M5 bug.... Compliments of Ted's original post. lol

I saw that one the other day and thought it was a really nice example. I personally do not like TiAg or the full black interior, but if that works for you, it looks like a great one.
