    Any ideas what it went for? Straight on eBay at £4995������������
    Looks a fair bit rougher in the ebay pics. Will require a fair bit of work to get through IVA.

    We could do a guess the price competition, before the auction results become available.

    My guess is £2150.00

    Unless there are some build photos with it, it will have to be dismantled and re built anyway.

    It is being mis-advertised as "Registered as a BMW 325i" - it clearly isn't an E36 BMW 325i, and can not "be registered" as such.

    It is NOT registered as the Marlin Sportster that it is trying to become , and will have to go through an expensive (£600) IVA test, once it has been fully prepared and capable of passing of passing a fairly stringent test.

    I think Louis is looking for a quick profit, but hopefully any interested parties will have a look on the Forum and see that when the preparation required for the IVA test is factored in, it is significantly over valued at £5k.
