Too bad its white, and needs to be lowered...I'll get over the white, and she'll be lowered as soon as I can get springs here. Picked it up in California so its pretty mint with 88k on it.

I also had to get rid of a few to make room, but still have the E30s.

WOW *mw* that is one sexy e36, I love Alpine White on e36s. Beautiful car, beautiful wheels too. Mind if I ask how much you paid for it in the states?

Thanks - I paid $14,000.00 US for it which ends up being about $18,500 CDN with Duty (6.1%), Tax (6%), Exchange (15%), RIV fee (195), and air con tax ($100).

From what I've seen 14K is steep for a 95, but it is mint (california car), original, full BMW service history, and low mileage, so it was worth more to me. Plus the BBS rims are a good 3k new. Theres not even a door ding in it.

Goodness, thats a really clean, original looking M3 you have there man. Congrats on the buy!

What/where did the M5 end up if you don't mind me asking?

Ian Sheppard
01-07-2007, 01:16 AM
Thanks for all the kind words.

The rims are 17 x 8 RGRs with 235/40/17 Pilot sports. Should look even better with some H&R springs. Its currently on stock M3 springs with Koni shocks.

I sold the M5 to a fella in Vancouver. I'm sure he'll enjoy it, it was a fun car for sure. Would have liked to keep it, but there's only 3 spots in the garage, and I couldn't part with either E30.

Very nice clean car, I think its worth the money.
Its geting harder to find a nice unmolested e36 M3.

Agreed, unmolested e36's are at a premium these days, especially M's. People are less likely to mod 328 4doors, which is why i got one.

Beautiful machine, i'm sure she'll treat you well.

Nice toys btw;)

Wicked M's you got in the garage!!! The E36 is so damn clean and white is the best part of it!!!
Are you collecting or just buying > having fun with it > selling?

Great grab Ian, when did you move to Calgary?

BTW, your E30 is pretty much the reason my car looks as it does. I have that same pic saved on my PC from many years ago, off the Roadfly forums. Always said my car would be like that one...one day. :)

Thanks - I've had a good few over the last 5 years, but I wouldn't call myself a collector. All the cars get driven (and tracked) or a regular basis. I'm just having fun with them and end up flipping regularly as something catches my interest. I don't see myself selling either of the E30s, especially since I'm half way through putting an OBD1 S52 in the 325is.

Thanks - I've always liked the Ronal wheels with a stock lowered look. I saw it myself a good few years ago on Roadfly and had had to have it myself. You'll have to do a S52 swap now to keep on par! The biggest debate with the swap has been the brakes...I want to upgrade to M3 brakes, but can't part with the 4 bolt rims. I think I will have to keep them and get a BBK.

I left Newfoundland about 2.5 years ago to work out in Calgary. I'm a mechanical engineer, so Alberta is the spot to be at the moment.

Perfect, but I think the white needs the lux. grille for the front bumper.*th-up*

Perhaps I am wrong but as far as I know there are some extensive mods that need to be done to the front end of the 95 to make it legal in canada. Im not talking just bumper but entire subframe mods to make it compliant. I hope I am wrong. Nice car!!!

Nice car, the rear offset looks a little wierd.

There is nothing wrong with white, I love it how the amber corners are still on the car. Interior looks mint too.

is it 88k km's or miles?

white cars are nice, especially with Gunmetal, gold or black colored wheels

Its 88K miles so about 140 kms. Not too bad for a 95... The white is growing on me for sure. Looks great clean.
