An E21 was the first "modern" car that I fell in love with as a kid. I aspired to be wealthy just to be able to own a car like that... I like this one a whole lot (and seriously considered it the last time it was for sale)... go for it... then sell it to me when you're finished with it. ;-)

2002 people and E30 people hate the E21. I think they are just jealous because the E21 is the better looking car of the three.

Sure it is as heavy as an e30 with the M10 for propulsion but so is a 318i and E30 folks rave about excellent handling of the lighter motor. The swaybar doubling as a draglink is said to cause speed related steering wheel wobble. That is good though. That way the E21 will fit in with every other BMW made it seems.

I really like E21's. Shame that they get so little respect.

That's a fine looking car and worth the price.

Nice car built on a pretty much worthless chassis. But, for the price if it's as nice as it looks its worth it just for being in good condition and likely fun to drive.

I had that same basic engine combo in my e30 and made 13 more rwhp than he's advertising. fwiw.

looks like a fine way to get to work and back.

I like E21s, Middle Year 911s, and other oddballs precisely for that reason.
