This one looks... interesting. It's mislisted and is actually a manual.

Swap for some properly fitting wheels and remove whatever weird badge they added by the side marker and it could be something. I'm assuming something has been done to the suspension, looks like the front is higher than the rear.

Bilsteins probably happened to the suspension. Mine sits like that on stock sport springs on B8s. Happy with the rear, but wish that the front was 1/2" lower.

Any guesses on a cause for the windshield gasket to pop on the top corner? Itís fairly local to me, considering sending a message. Not familiar with how to handle the title situation either.

Yes whoever installer the glass probably did not use OEM trim... it is only for looks and to quiet wind noise though

Nothing to handle. The ABA title makes the tow yard the legal owner of the vehicle through abandonment by the original owner, this gives them full legal rights to sell and transfer the title. You'll receive a standard title from CT DMV.

Thanks all. I'm on the fence. Given the high miles, unknown history, ..wheels..., and the fact that it was abandoned are some red flags at the current price point.

Let's say dude spent all of his cash on those new wheels and then went out that Friday night, parked in the wrong spot near the bar and ended up towed by one of those predatory tow operations. Let's also imagine that he lives paycheck to paycheck and had no way of paying the fine before his next paycheck.
Those storage fees that those places charge will stack up to more than an old car is worth quickly.

I once gave up a '68 Firebird over a very similar situation.

That one has been for sale for a while, now. Definitely a neat car!

I wouldn't normally post a non-e46 on the E46 thread...

But this e34 Touring is very interesting and I can't find much info on the Olympic edition in the Touring style!

60* air temp from the vents is not good, maybe its just the way he's measuring it, just a FYI.

Yeah, I was thinking that, too. Should be under 50. 60 won't pass BMW CPO!
