I bought my E34 because of the modifications not despite the modifications. Horses for courses I guess.

My car had been from dealer to dealer getting cheaper each time because no one wanted an E34 with big wheels and sports suspension and a manual transmission.

The trick is to find the car you want. Let someone else spend all the bucks on the modifications and then buy the car. The V12 E34 is a perfect example there is no way the guy who did the mods recouped his outlay but the guy who bought it got a supercar for a shopping trolley price.

When it comes time to sell you may have to wait for a while for the 'right' buyer but, hec, you only need one.
