Yes, it's a diesel and it's a touring. Imported from Belgium. I have all the paperwork on the import.

I bought this car in June but I just found my dream Land Rover so I have to let this go. I will shoot photos later today but in the meantime, here's a link to the original FS thread:

Since I bought the car, I had the entire A/C system replaced to the tune of $2,100.00. New compressor, condenser, receiver/dryer, aux. fan. I also sorted out a few minor issues:

- new JVC radio unit with Bluetooth and iPhone support
- rear shock mounts
- fixed OBC
- new shift knob
- Weathertech floor mats

Parts are not a problem for this car. I have had great support from Mike at Maranello BMW. BMW will get you any part you need. I've stocked up on a few filters which are included.

Price is $6,500 which means I am eating the $2k A/C rebuild. All told, I have about $9,000 into the car. Car drives great and I get about 6l/100km.

- 180,000kms
- e-tested, certified
- minor rust on the tailgate which I am told is a common problem for the e36 touring.
- very clean undercarriage and interior

You can see it in Burlington during the day or West GTA on weekends and evenings. Serious buyers please.

Looking forward to the pics! I was interested in this car in June but you beat me to it...

I was going to post pics but it's poring rain now. It really doesn't look any different than the original for sale post that I linked to. Add a new shift knob and stereo to the interior shot.

If you really were interested in June, you can buy it now for the same price and you get a 2k A/C job thrown in for free.

PM me if you want to see it.

Pretty much the Landie that I've been looking for for 10 years. That's all I'm going to say.

Correction - it's a 318tds, not a 316. Typo.

You HAVE to indulge me with the information!!! Defender? I am not in the market so don't worry about me buying it from underneath you.*th-up*

Is there any Land Rover worth buying other than a Defender? I put down a deposit but can't complete the deal unless I sell the BMW. I'm a dead man if I try to jam another vehicle onto the driveway.

Well, let's not get carried away with that comment ;).
Congrats, be sure to post some pictures when it is in your posession.

Sorry guys. Land Rover deal fell through. Diesel wagon no longer for sale.
