Was involved in insurance fraud and VINs were swapped. Not the kind of title issue that is easily solved, LOL.

Yeah. Assume you'll need an old priest and a young priest for that one...wasn't the Vermont loophole closed recently as well?

A person could make a bashed up 3 series(with a title) a nice looking m3 after some parts swapping.

Nope, close but too many little tweaks to be perfect.

Wow. He's looking for 17 large on this and can't take an hour to wash it? I think this and a 318ti chassis would make an interesting build but what a mess...

I don't catch the young/old reference, but the Vermont loophole wouldn't have even straightens that nightmare out!

I didn't know these in perfect condition were going for six figures. However it would be a good episode of Fast N Loud, how they could make this process look easy laugh I bet the messages the sellers are getting are hilarious. He should just clean it up and put it on bring a trailer, less of a headache.

 

28-Years-Owned 1988 BMW M3 Project this one went for $40.5k so he might be able to get his $17k.

I think its totally worth it - Years ago I drove a 2002 with that driveline in it.  The raw anger that thing had is burned into my memory.  I dont think you can get a M3 engine and (I assume) dogleg gearbox for 17k.

With the title issues, this might be the last E30 M3 that could be a vintage race car build.

Yes if you can you buy this. 

Just as a reference Bring a Trustfund sold a s14 engine for 25k.
