Shame, I'd have flown out from Halifax to get a manual euro iX again. GLWS!

edit: You know what, these are incredibly rare in good shape. PM sent.

Clean car with low mileage. It almost should be taken out of daily winter use and used as a pleasure vehicle.

If it's driven in the winter, rust proof the poor thing.

Is this the same car that was listed on Kijiji for at least a year and most recently for $2000? To each his own but as an enthusiast on this forum I am here to assist and a good car is a good car but making a 300% profit on our fellow members is a little offside....

If this really sold for 2000$ that would be the deal of the century.

BMWVintage

Again, I am not sure if it is the same car but I am looking for one and had spoken to the mechanic where it was stored, that car was imported from Japan and in his estimation, it needed at least another $2000 in mechanical work. As always, due diligence to fellow members and those interested.

I love the iX and they are increasing in value every year...maybe every day!

I don't usually make this sort of post, but given the near immediate turnaround time on this one (less than a week) I'm making an exception: I can definitely confirm that this is the same car that just sold for $2,000 - probably less as it was sitting at a shop after failing a safety inspection and the seller was motivated. I even have the V.I.N. to prove it along with loads of details about it.

I was about to buy it myself, but I was waiting to see if a friend of mine was going to buy it as he thought he needed to replace his current vehicle, and this would've been perfect for him. I lost the car while I waited. *mumble*

It needed new brakes on all four corners and a new tie rod, but even with that work done there's a healthy profit in this one to be sure.

Best of luck with the sale, though!

Shit, would have bought it for 2000$ no doubt.

This is why I love car communities. So it's definitely a japanese car and not a european one then?

AFAIK, JDM cars are Euro cars. The only real change tends to be the radio due to their different frequency.


I am flat out angry I missed this car. It would have made a perfect daily driver/winter car to replace the Volvo we have now.

Thanks for your posts everyone! Indeed it is the car that was on Kijiji for $2000.00 and I was lucky enough to scoop it up at that price! Knowing what it needs in labour and $ invested to certify I don't think a $6000.00 OBO asking price is a unreasonable for a healthy IX with no rust on the body. By all means if you can save and do the work yourself shoot me an offer.

For safety:
Break Pads and Rotors all around
Right side front lower ball joint
Right side sway bar link
Right side outer tie rod

Yes the radio was definitey sawapped with a Japanese deck due to frequency. It does have an ipod connection however

How come your selling it so fast if you just baught it? Is it just because you can flip it and make 3x what you paid for it or is there something really wrong with the car?

Mark_Mal
02-11-2013, 09:03 PM
I bought it with the intent to sell. The car is fantastic but needs work to certify so my price reflects that so making 3x is hardly the case Seyar

Have you replaced the pads and rotors and fixed the suspension for the new asking price?

If I bought it I would have fixed it up, enjoyed it for several months, then made the decision to sell it on or install a manual transmission in it. There aren't many E30s in Canada (or anywhere really) in this condition, so when a good one pops up you really need to pounce on it.

This thread needs some moderation, nothing wrong with buying a car at a deal to make some money, majority of people would do this.

The current asking price is still a deal for this car in this condition.

I haven't done the work yet as it depends on who buys the car. I know a lot of guys on this forum are capable of doing the work themselves and could buy it for a lot less and save so I wanted to leave that option open. Im happy to get the work done to it, but I have to pay full pop for labour etc.

Can't fault him for wanting to make money. If I lived in ON I'd be at his door today with cash, truly rust free e30s don't often come up for sale.

Do all the negative people here complain and ask a car dealer what he paid? how much he made on it? Get real people.
I dread the thought of one of you buying a house that has appreciated.
Do you expect him to sell it for less than the market dictates?

Agree! If someone finds an undervalued stock and sells it when it appreciates, good for him/her. If someone can pull it off with a car, kudos.

Wish I had space and need... would have bought it. Alas, practicality! Hope it went to a good home.

Just because it came from Japan doesn't mean it isn't Euro-spec. Lots of European market cars were imported into Japan, sometimes years after being sold in Europe.

I can't believe this car took 11 days to sell. Even at $6000 it's a steal for an E30 of this condition/mileage. At $2000, that's 1st degree murder.

The economy must be worse than I thought.

If anyone needs money now and wants to give away their cars, holla at me.
