WTB: The Cheapest 135i on the market

Not to sound like a cheap ass but....

I want to purchase a 135i 6 speed manual trans.

Those are the only two requirements.

Car can be Salvage (chassis straight), currently wrecked (chassis can be fixed), blown up.
I realize there are not many of them floating around the forums but I wanted to throw it out there as I want a 135i to gut and turn into a track beast, as long as the car is straight I will fix the rest.
I just cant justify throwing 25k into a car just to gut all the technology and expensive stuff I just paid for right back out.

Please help me find a vehicle

Thank you

Good luck... but if all else fails you could always "part out" all of the stuff you dont want and just get back your money.

Well that's the trick. A $25,000 is hard to total if the chassis is straight. Maybe flood damaged? Might call wrecking yards in the northeast...

FYI: I was trolling and offered 11 for it, he immediately responded 15,000 so guessing he will go even lower. Id have it checked out though even if your gonna strip it.

Edit: Also notice its a 2008 135is, and be sure to check out the Alpina wheels.....

Have you considered talking to some insurance companies? For example, My buddy totaled his 2008. He hit a curb sideways and rolled it up on its side. The side, wheels, roof, back glass, suspension are all screwed up, so the insurance company will auction it rather than fix it. Airbags didn't even go off.
