Looks like it has some suspension work, too.

I'd say $12k-15k.

So you guys think it's worth between $11-14ish canadian?

The guy also said that the engine makes a little noise at idle. He said it's because of the m3 cams. Anyone have m3 cams in a 325 here? Does it idle any different than stock?

what kind of noise is it? is the idle smooth? cuz if it is then it might be the cams.

Looks sweet, all it needs is a m3 stock or performance exhaust :)

yes. It has a few tan parts still, that the guy didn't get with the m3 interior. The armrest, sunroof, and top part of the dash. I am not concerned. I can pick those things up for a few hundred.

As for the cams, this is what the guy told me:
"the timing chain tensioner was replaced, it clanked really bad, and they fixed it, and now it just idles a little rougher than normal cams. which is easily fixable with the original cams i still have."

okay. Followup question. Does anyone know of a good mechanic that could take a look at the car for me in south central louisiana?

The idle might be due to the cams, but it shouldn't be all that noticable, M3 cams aren't that hot.

Two upgrades you should look into, an exhaust, and a proper cold air intake.

I am actually curious myself. How much gain do m3 cams give in a 325?

never offer more than blue-book for a modded BMW (HRE/BBS rims excepted), unless you personally know the driving habits of the previous own3r.

my opinion only

I agree. $12k CAD is quite a bit more than he wants.

A buddy of mine has a 94 325i (4 door) 5 speed with only 167K

He wants to sell it. It's white and in imaculant condition. Never bin hit. He's asking 12,000. Comes with an upgraded aftermarket stereo system. Email me (tom@fieldofwebs.com) for further details. The car is located in thornhill

If you want M3 cams you can get them for 250 USD. This car is in pristine condition though...
