Ok.. i have seen the car!
first the engine as been rebuilt at 180 000km. ans it's a guy Name Benoit laurier. or know as Ben lo, who suppose to built race BMW in quebec! so the engine Rev perfectly and DAMN the tranny is short, and presice! the cluth is hard but i like it, it give a race car feel,
ok. all this is nice, But, there'is a but' the paint isn't mint, i have see it in the dark, But i look dent and seen to fade, and there a little bit of rust under the car and in the enigne bay. nothing critical, but i'am use to car with no rust at all, theres also a tie rod to change, the heater fan doesn't work, leather seat are nice except fr the driver side, and the are aren't black but a kind of dirt color.

But still... there's a tempation... the engine sound is like music. and Damn the performance Kick ass! tomorrow or wednesday i'll bring it for a inspection... so i'll keep you update

Oh the guy also wnat 4500, he dont want to negociate! he's living the contry for asia in one week...

almost forgot, driver side look isn't working but it's just a missing spring the guy got it, and the other big BUT the coil spring are not good, the are drop, but they have take the Stock ones and Heat them up to drop them... so the feel no good at all, new ones wiil be needed.
so for 4500, there a paint, a tie-rod , and coil spring, it's more than a 1000$ ( even 2000$) in repair...
