Being a Volvo lover and drive a 90 940 this is an excellent buy:) 5 speed with Turbo flies and is a driver's car. Bump for a great car:)

you drive a 90 940? where did you get that car from? the earliest 940 in North America is a 91 model.

btw, free bump

You listed this in April 2006. Have you viewed Autotrader to see if the price you're asking for is ok? Have a look and maybe you may adjust your price because it's been five months and the car is still for sale. Maybe you should try ebay?

Wasn't YOUR car listed on max for quite some time and the price didn't budge much?

This car is a good deal for the asking price. Keep in mind it IS O.B.O. and these are tough to find in a manual transmission!

Which car? My Type-R? The same one that in 2003 you said it was a good price and then bump after bump I sell it for $7000 less in a year and a half? So, again, you said it was a good price when I couldn't sell it, and now you're trying to compare my car to this in which I dropped the price considerably until someone offered me the cash? Totally different scenario. But what's common is that you said my car was a good price when no one was interested in buying it.

I'm trying to help the guy sell his car. I just asked if he researched his price. That's all. What you take from that is your own problem. I didn't say, "Yo this POS is so overpriced man!". Read my post again. Ebay is something I often suggest to people who have trouble selling cars. Obviously selling cars here is a big problem when people value their own cars the same way. Point is, be open minded, and quit being so defensive. We all have a common goal here, and no one is here to knock down your friend. If we'd all rather be blinded and just be nice and dandy to eachother for no other reason than BMW camaraderie, then no cars will be sold here and we'd all be unhappy. Brianstorm, share ideas, sell cars. Pretty simple.

price drop. 5600 thats the best I am going to do but I am open to offers. This car will be sold etested and saftied.


I checked out auto trader and hear is want the prices are for turbo model. Note: GLTís and base models are not turbo and have 168hp compared to the turbos that have 222hp.
Also note that the 1994's are almost a totally different body and look ugly so thatís why I didn't include them or even check them out.

-Ok there is 1 turbo with my km for 4400$ but this thing has been smashed up and is no where near the condition my Volvo is in. (note- I would of got it for this price if it was good lol)

-The next 2 are 4900 wagon auto (didnít check this one out) but if you want an auto wagon go for it.

-The next 2 are auto's but have lower K and they are going for 5500 (not to do a 5speed swap its going to be pricey about 1G+

-After thoughts your looking at 7000 with still 200k on them so my price I would say is right on the money....

price seems fair to me, for a turbo with the millage and the fact that it's in such good shape and is manual, i KNOW that these in manual are rare, the rents had one back in the day, they are hella quick cars.

Are you kevin's friend? If so, I've also seen this car. Good price for what you get. Manual 850's are a blast to drive.

Part it out and sell me your tranny :)
