In Reply to: UK guys - can anyone get a straight answer (more) posted by DarranP on March 21, 2002 at 17:28:48:

That's not the only thing they don't give strait answers about. I've been looking for a E30 M3 Cabrio to import into the US (have a database of these cars for the last 5 years on an excel), so I've been keeping an eye on the E30 M3's in the UK. Seems that is where a large majority are at this time.

Well, I delt with them last summer on an Red 1989 car with about 19K with the Ravaglia interior. It was at that time a 1989 Macao Blue car with 4.6K miles and a wiesman hardtop was available also. Well, to make a long shorty short, they didn't give me a strait answer on the price of their car ( it was a cosigned car ) for sooooo long that the Macao Blue car sold.

Well, the funny thing on the 1989 Red E30 M3 cabrio was that the price kept rising! Before landing in the UK to view it, it was 15K for the car. As you know you can find these cars now and at that time for between 6K to 13K, so 15K was definitely on the top end. Well, when I got there the had the advertisement on the car at 16.9K. And when I returned home it was about 17.5K. It really got me hot under the collar that the price kept rising for the car, because they knew I wanted the car! It was a prime example of one, but for goodness sake!

Well, it's happened again. The currently have consigned the EXACT car I would like to purchase. It's a 1989 E30 M3 Cabrio Sliver/Black with <50K miles, with FBMWSH, and air con. I had a friend call from the UK and he could not get a price from them either!!!!!! They told my friend the car is located in the Netherlands. So if anybody has a clue about this car, PLEASE let me know. I'm tired of being "PLAYED" by ML in trying to purchase this vehicle. It would be great to contact the seller directly and see what he wants for the car, rather than PAY ML for doing nothing.......

Any help or advice would be greatly welcome! Thanks
