Looks clean, but do your homework on it for sure... I'd suggest taking it to Sheni's or Nurburgring for a thorough inspection...

Well Looked at the M3 at Urban Motors, and another M3 for private sale. I love the carbon Black color with its Tan leather Interior. Loved the car. Didnt get to drive it due to all the snow and ice build up. Car started up after being boosted up, on a cold hard start not even a valve tick from the engine. Idled nice, sounded good. It is very low. Im in love with the car. Gonna be talking to the bank here soon and see what i can do...
I love the car and would love to have it for spring

Your from Sylvan, thats awesome. Ur a tech? licensed? or what year. Im a 4th year apprentice, so i have a good head on my shoulders on how to fix things, but if i do ever need another opinion or some help i'll let u know. Maybe once i get this new M3, we can go for a cruise in red deer in the summer some time. I got a buddy with a 70 Chevlle with a LS1 in it, with Twin 67mm turbo's over 700hp, 10.9 Seconds at 135mph lol. Its a nice car, work in progress and hes a great guy.

Think the vanus needs to be done both rear bearings to be done exhaust leak rear windows and sunroof won't open and horn won't work thats all I can think of now where are you located I'm in Calgary

Taunto
02-19-2011, 08:38 PM
Im from Sylvan Lake. Why do you think the Vanus needs to be done? is it making noise or something?

CHARMOUS
02-19-2011, 08:51 PM
There is a ticking noice coming from the vanus cover plus I wouldn't mind changing it and doing a complete service

Taunto
02-19-2011, 09:38 PM

CHARMOUS

It's a 93 320i. Also have a plans to get a euro m3 motor during the summer that I'll defiantly need sone one to install the ticking iv only noticed today the car had been running for about a hr when heard it but I remember that same ticking noice from my 98 328i and that's what my mechanic had changed

hmm, ya id half to hear and take a look at it. I dont really have any room at my place or even a hoist. Only thing i could suggest would wait till the end of march if u can, and bring it here to sylvan lake Candian Tire, its where me and my other buddy are switching jobs to, cause well Rocky Mountain Dodge is a junk pile of place to work for and not making any money, plus its in town way cheaper on gas. If you do decide to take that route, the soft opening day of the new store is March 24, if you do come feel free to request Justin to work on it and that will be me. If you can not wait that long, then maybe bigpimpin's buddy just outside of red deer may be a better deal to look at, i know for a fact from what he said as a shop rate its about half the rate that candian tire will be. i think our shop will be $99 an hour i think, Anyway im sorry im not much help. Maybe if you could make a video of the sound your hearing and post it up, we can all take a look at it and ill show it to my buddy and see what he says as well. I know that Ywon at Nurburgring Shop over by Chinook mall is good, or so i hear, he knows his BMW's and have heard nothing but good things from him, could also stop in at this shop and see what he has to say
