i just picked this one up today this afternoon. everything is still stock except for the alpine cd stereo and the alarm system.
i was surprise by its got alot of pull on it, does any body here know if this car has mod chip installed on it or should i say how would i know. i took it home thru hwy 407 and excellent ride.
the best part is that i got it for 7300 bucks with 143000 km. e-test and certified. another good thing it's manual tranny and no rust. any mod suggestion ... welcome ... thx ...

looks VERY NICE, good condition, and i LOVE the color!!!!
spoiler would look nice, lol, to check for the chip just hold the gas pedal if you can take it past 6500 RPM then you most likely have the chip installed!!
PRIVATE SALE or DEALER???

Sweet ride! I love the colour*th-up*. I don't know if you got the records but if you didn't you should change the water pump, check the rad and so on and so on. You should really make sure the maintainance is up to date before you start any mods. Just my 0.02 cents.

wow, what a deal, i've seen '94 BMW with about the same amount of km's going for around $15000 Cdn. they had some mods to them, but for $7300, that's crazy. did you get it private, does this guy know anything about how much he could of sold the car for.
i got a white '94 325is, sweet colour, put on some nice rims, drop it, and put a spoiler, sweet.

Congrats man... nice car! The only other thing with the early E36's is the fogged/yellowes headlight lenses.... makes a big dfference in looks if you replace them, but not a big deal.

Nice ride. The water pump is a must if it hasn't already been done. You may also want to check the truck wiring.

e46 lover, prices will go down for sure. I am actually considering not buying another car for a year or so, and saving my money, and then getting an e34. whether or not i can do it(be without a car) is the hard part. LOL
Nice car bud, now go get it a leather interior!

i know it's kind of hard to find this price with the km 143000 most of them are over 200000 for sure and still over 8 - 9000 bucks. and if the car has been mod the price goes up above 11 - 13000. this way i can mod it slowly. i was considering to lease a new one about 400 to 500 bucks a month which is not bad but this one i got no loan what so ever. feels much better driving a car that is totally paid off ... ...
thx for compl.

i was considering to find one with leather interior like my subaru sedan fully leather but it heats up so much under the sun if the car left out on the parking lot. but i might change my mind later and get leather. thanks.

He meant "trunk wiring." When you open your trunk on the lefthand side is some wiring. It is covered with black plastic By opening and closing the trunk over ten years the wires inside get flexed back and forth and have been known to break , short out and cause all kinds of weird problems. So you can cut the plastic to check the wiring before it happens. If you a paranoid that is.:D

lol .... i thought i got to look for some truck parts on my bimmer ... j/k
wiring check ... ok ... except for the button on the trunk lid is off set for some reason ... perhaps it's easy fix ...

thank you, that's true the 4 doors are cheaper in price for some reason. originally i wanted a 2 doors black or blue but after considering the insurance on the 2 D cost more and then it was so hard to find a good used one with a low km and cheap then i was considering the suggestion from thinair regards to suspension on a 4D so i end up with this one .... white 4D ....
