I particularly like the "recently painted" comment. Let's hope that is a vinyl decal!

Bet money the bags popped and instead of replacing everything they just pieced together an early dash and steering wheel to save money.

That car has so much wrong with it, it would take a day to type it all out. They had it up on Autotrader for $50k also but the add is down.

Everyone:

I have one of our club members here in Columbus wanting to sell his Black/black 1985 5 speed with 42K miles. The car has a salvage title that was repaired and the whole car repainted. The car was hit in a parking lot at his work and the driver's door, fender, rear quarter and passenger door were replaced from a donor car. Receipts from the body shop confirms this. The interior is all leather with the dash of course pulling away from the vents seats are excellent. The paint is a 6 out of 10. More of a 10 footer. The engine had the timing belt with Porken tensioner and Laso pump done 2 years ago and only 1K miles put on it since then. Transmission shifts well and clutch is strong. Tires are 9 years old. Little things galore to fix. Definitely a project car but with the Rebuilt Ohio title would not be one you could flip and make out on. Sorry no pictures. I have the CarFax I can send to start. The guy wants to sell it but doesn't seem to take suggestions for getting me pictures to get it out there. If someone made him an offer of $3500, I bet he would take it. I don't need another project so I thought someone here may jump on it.


PM me and I can hopefully get some pictures from him.

I would bet on the air bags as well. I have never seen any 928 in Canada 89 and above without airbags. (unless they are euro imports)

The dealer has an obvious attitude and if the reserve is anything north of 15k BAT needs to give their head a shake.

The car is an M900 so was delivered at the factory for a Canadian buyer.

Wow, big opinions from peeps that have never seen this car in person.. Don't you love the internet?. If someone is truly interested in this car, a ppi will surely be made. Sorry to disappoint some here, but this car is easily worth over $35k. --

Even if it has 'theoretical' issues, it's a GT and that means it's not an automatic--- and that means it's a better driving machine than any 'mint' S4/GTS that's hampered with a slushbox. I've noticed that the buyers that are interested in a 5-speed 928s, 'only consider manuals'. So this car should never be compared to any automatic as far as history-condition-maintenance, it's a totally different value proposition. Savvy buyers know this.

The tell on this one, as mentioned, it has the early dash, early wheel but the later console and cluster. These pieces never came together and you can tell by how the console connects with the dash. A curved console just doesn't fit with the square dash points. I really doubt the dealer has a clue about this and, at this point, is finding more about the car than he really wants to.

The fuel lines are all original from what I can tell. Which also means the intake has most likely never been off the car. Could tell more if the engine bay picture was a bit more detailed.

Ah! I see it now. I had to care enough to look at more pictures.

I really cannot fathom the confusion of thoughts swirling around the inside of your head that result in the production of some of your posts.

You seem to dismiss obvious serious issues as ignorant ravings. This isn't a theoretically extant problem. There is no doubt a serious problem exists. The only thing that is theoretical is its nature. Either:
- the pictures in the ad are not from the car being sold
- it's an '89 retrofitted with some '90 parts and a new VIN
- it's a '90 with the airbags removed

Do you have an alternative explanation for why a 928, factory-equipped with dual airbags, is displayed with none?

Sorry but you are way off and don't forget that this car is in Canada not the US. Our market is small. No way this car is worth 35k here. That's 43k cdn. PAFF in Toronto has a 100k km GT that is perfect with detailed history, no accidents and 13k in recent work, and they are asking 55k cdn (and the car has been for sale for some time).

Here is what 55k CDN can get you.

Also Quebec cars are a nightmare and everyone in Canada knows it. Perhaps someone out of the country will buy this thing just because it's a GT and that is what the dealer is hoping for. I manage a Service Ontario and deal with these province transfers every day and would not touch a PQ car with accident history with a 10 ft pole.

I take it it's the first 1990 Canadian without airbags that you've seen. Over my 20+ years of 928 ownership, I've seen many mint examples. We would have to see the build sheet before jumping to conclusions. The Euro market was even weirder when it came to airbag options for 928s, ask me how I know.

Just ignore him, if he's as much of a peckerhead in person as he is on the intrawebs he's not worth anyones time.

You met me? Don't think you would say that if you did.

If I'm understanding the main concern about this car, it's the incorrect fitment of the dash to the center console - you have any build sheets that would explain this?
