Stumbled upon this. What an awful douche.
>leaky oil pan gasket
>"dun quote me no bullshit ah kno wut ah gawt"
This is how craigslist is.
Here's a decent shitbox for a decent shitbox price, you can tottally haggle with me and get a good deal.
>anything even a little bit sporty
I KNOW WHAT I GOT GIVE ME ALL SHEKELS *hand rub*
Youll need either a w58 or r154 trans, the proper bellhousing, flywheel, driveshaft, clutch pedal, master cylinder, lines for all that, and mounts, etc. So, as hard as any other manual swap, also the wiring for reverse and probably some repinning in the harness. Thats just off the top of my head.
>Look at FC I found on Craigslist
>$1000 for the convertible version
>go over, check it out
>test drive, everything's fine
>alright time to drive home with it
>3 minutes after test drive
>car dies wtf
>limp into speedway parking lot
>check it out, turns out the alternator belt snapped off
>drive home an hour and a half away with my other car because it's 10 pm and freezing
>go back with my haynes manual and fix that shit
>time for the drive home
>alright so far so good
>lights are dimming
>eventually have to pull over and check out whats going on
>alternator belt snapped again (different one)

and there's the story about how I'm a fucking idiot buying $1k craigslist specials
>buy e36 318i
>know the defrost and wipers don't work but I'm a big strong man & don't need that shit
>decide to wring her out on hour-long drive home
>break fanbelt, rad goes dry
>fill rad from fountain in upscale housing complex
>make fanbelt out of torn strips of seat cover
by now it has gotten dark and started to rain
>Ace Ventura'd that shit home
>quality CL purchase
Which one of you cringy faggots is this? I know you're here.
Probably the same dildo that will be triggered as fuck by this rx7
>americans get raped with supra prices
>people in ausfalia laugh at supra drivers because they're so cheap and plentiful
It's like the Celica's bigger, fatter RWD sister. I'll never get the appeal.
Don't be a faggot.
If you've never seen the belt route and the belt snaps you won't have reference. Yeah you could probably guess it but it never hurts to double check. Jesus christ go back to your FWD containment threads.
I'm pretty sure it's been a requirement for cars with serpentine belts to have a diagram printed somewhere in the engine bay for a while now.
>shitty paint in an ugly color
>doesnt even know why its a rebuilt title and probably has frame damage
>leaking oil pan
christ you werent kitting
the problem is this
>rich boyracer sees car
>buys because he's an idiot
>"since that pos supra sold for 18k MY pos supra must sell for 18k"
>this continues amongst the retards
>now most/all supras are expensive as shit.
Found this gem:
>Looks absolutely fucking killer-if I don't say so myself
>Her name is Freak Caroline
>if I don't say so myself
I could care less about these diamond dozen misspellings, they're the spitting image of the internet.
the real reason is entry level it nerds who live with their parents and all of their income is disposable, so they have no problem forking out 20k for an na pos, or 40k+ for a turbo
>body is 8/10
Yea, 8/10th is still there
Went to San Diego for a dealer listed "excellent condition 6-speed all stock" e36 M3.
>Wasn't a six-speed (which would have meant a Euro import), was a five (no big surprise).
>Half the cars in the lot were covered in mud, pics showed clean interior but now there were muddy footprints in the floor.
>Had a rear shock tower brace and clear lights, so it wasn't exactly stock but not really any complains about that.
>Missing headunit but still had some protruding Bluetooth system installed.
>But the crown jewel was this had some oversized radiator added in that was being held on with wire because the clips didn't fit it.
I informed them of some of the inconsistencies in the advertisement. I checked back nearly a month later and the advert still hadn't changed. Can't find it on CL anymore but it's still on their website. Price reduced another thousand, who would have guessed? Most of the private sellers on CL seemed more reputable than this.
The original 6 speed that came on it costs (used) about half of what the seller wants for that banana Poopra. That's not even taking into account the cost for the extra parts like that other anon mentioned.
