    Can you check the vin and therefor the status....stolen, etc. I'm sure the owner would love to have someone find it! Otherwise, ship it here, I'll take it!

    Take the vin number down and have DMV do a search. Chances are, the person that owns it, gets it back, or the gangbanger that abandoned it is sitting in the slammer, or in an unmarked grave. Either way, DMV will give them thirty days to respond, no response? The car is yours.

    Seeing that the windows are open (broken?) I'm pretty sure you'd have to trash that interior. Who knows what you'll find in there. Shame cause the rest of the car doesn't seem in too bad shape except for the vandalized pop-ups.

    It looks like it’s lowered, with tires that are not the correct profiles. I’d try to save it, color definitely needs to go…. Oxford Green 2!

    This is duplicate of mine! I like the color.....but to each its own.

    BTW, I re-posted this in the e31 forum with hopes that someone in the northeast recognizes this car and can notify the owner.

    Sorry man, just have never been a fan of teal green. And I love green, my favorite color.

    my first choice was to find a e31 in silver to match my 540i.....but I decided to take on a project and it was green. I even thought of repainting the 850 a different color, but to do that correctly with the door jambs, wheel wells, trunk, etc was too extensive and expensive. I chose to repaint it the original Laguna Green (266).
