I've noticed that SK is the origin of all of the Alpina e36's I've seen in Canada. Is there some sweet law there that allows for easier importing from Japan?

How much does a car like that cost?

there is a guy in quebec not far from ottawa that has a red b3 3.0 thats very nice and i think we have the only 2 in canada . i dont think the laws here are any diff than the rest of canada regarding imports . my b8 was pretty expensive 24k but i think it will appreciate in value over time

I have a E36 biz CD-radio unit which I purchased a while ago. What kind of radio unit you have in that vehicle. I am looking to upgrade, but if it is silver like in the picture, I might pass on it as I am looking for something that looks decent within the car.

I won't be in a position to resell the radio until at least the Spring because the car is heading into winter hibernation till mid-April in about a week or so. :-)
