1984 Euro 190e 2.3-16v (BMW e30 m3 killer)

Okay folks here is a chance to own a piece of history. The competitor for the e30 m3! I am selling my car. I will post more pics very soon. First I was curious of the interest level in the car. The price will be about 5000 obo for it. It runs better than stock. Just had valves adjusted. Magnaflow exhaust with cherrybomb. K&N air filter. Probably around 200hp here. This car is a rare one. Euro edition brought on the grey market to the states. Lightweight 2750lbs. In good condition with right at 100k miles. In very good condition for its age. Some small chips around the front bumper and one on rear wing. A small dent on the hood. Pretty normal. No rust! Sat in a garage for 10 years until i got it. Has grey leather interior in good condition. The sunroof and blower fan do not work. A/C compressor was removed at some point as well. Good stereo. Believe it or not. This car was converted from right to left hand drive and brought back to the states. And I have proof! The car is fully registered through Missouri Highway Patrol and fully street legal i have a non std-usa vehicle title in hand.

Will post more pics soon.

Interesting ride for sure, can't wait to see more photos. Would you mind posting up a photo of the conversion documents? I'd be interested to see how much it cost and who performed the work.

There is no record of who did the conversion on it except a little badge on the door.

200hp because of a loud muffler and air filter?

Post a pic of the badge on the door. Hard to believe anyone would go to expensive of converting RHD to LHD. The VIN/FIN well reveal the original configuration. Post it. Members here can verify.

Till then I an skeptical of the claim.
