This sounds like the same car that sold on CASC a month ago? http://casc.on.ca/forums/showthread.php?t=18956

Looks like the same car, but that one was $1000. Here is the post mentioning that:
Re: 1981 bmw 320i w/lsd and SDS standalone
Update: this car must be sold. Price is now slashed to $1,000. Take it away!
This is a very nice 30 year old car. Not a rust bucket. I do not have the time or the place for it now and it does the car no good just to sit doing nothing.
Turn it into a race car, do a ground up resto on it, or simply fix what ails it and drive it around. Your choice!
Here's what it currently needs:
- it has a brand new stainless exhaust system (value $1,000) that is installed but needs to be fitted.
- the clutch is at the end of its life and will need to be replaced soon.
- the radiator is at the end of its life and needs to be record or replaced soon
- it is leaking fuel from around the fuel pump. Worst case it needs a new fuel pump, fittings, lines and hoses.
I remind people that the mileage is verified at only 150,000 kms. The body is very solid. It has the desirable factory 5 speed, BBS mags (plus 4 winters on factory wheels) and recaro seats. Wonderful to drive!
Still titled in Ontario. Car is located in the Dundas area.
This must be a different car. *drink*

Lol. I looked at it: the PO seemed as straight forward as they come. I passed on the (1k) buy only because I'm trying to thin the herd. If I'd have known I could make $5500, maybe I would've bought it. ;)
When I looked at it, it needed the heater box reinstalled for safety, I believe...which may mean moving the SDS. The car ran great, and was largely rust free with the exception of the back panel under the tail lights.
Compared to when it sold for $1k, It appears that the tires have been added, along with some suspension goodies.

You are both on the ball. I ended up paying close to $2k for the car with another set of steel wheels and blissak snows. I have spent another 5k getting the car up to standards. I repaired the following:
New rad, repaired both seats (now look like new), replaced the rear valence panel and

Oops con't, velance painted proffessionally for 1k, re/re entire exhaust that was installed incorrectly, new r compound tires, new suspension, new rad (had a leak), new fuses as gauges were not working, and a few other issues. I now have close to 7k invested into it. I will keep it u less I receive a good offer. I purchased it for my son thinking that it was a good deal but it is too nice for a daily driver and I already have a sports car.

At what point did you decide that it's too nice to a DD, before or after you put $5k into the car...
06-22-2011, 04:52 PM
After I put the 5K into it!

After I put the 5K into it!
I meant that I'm bitter not you lol.
I usually check CASC for sale every day, or every other day. The one week I was so busy with work that I just didn't have the motivation to check this car (which I was interested in when it was put up for sale last year) was put up again at a lower price, then reduced to a grand and sold. I would have bought this car in a second @ $1k had I seen it in time *mumble*
good luck with the sale :)

Thnx! No problem. I may end up driving it for a while. It's a great car and I fixed up most of the small details that it was missing. I just may not have the time to enjoy it and it's a great fit for my son.
