That looks like the one that went for $5,500 on kijiji a few weeks ago.

If it is, that's quite the flip.

Otherwise, sweet ride.

Yes it is, I got a good deal! Don't get me wrong, I did do about a grand of work and bought a second set of rims and tires. All fluids were flushed and lifters were replaced. Car had been sitting for a few years.

Do you have service records from the previous owners and the work you did?

e30er 05-22-2012 08:28 AM

Yes

Nice move. That is quite the car for the money but not surprised it needed work for such a steal.

Why don't you want to hold on to it or at least enjoy it for the summer?

I got a deal on Maserati qp and thought I'd grab it. Honestly car is worth the money and will hold on to value or even appreciate due to rarity in ten years

Wow, I can't believe I missed it for 5500!!!

That is an amazing flip and I am happy for you. I would keep it if I were you.

BTW a 6spd 850i is not "very rare". They are a dime a dozen and go for sale for sub 10k all the time.

A 1997 last year production 840i 6spd is very rare indeed, and that engine is also a gem imo..

Those are probably worth some coin because they come with a 5.7L or 5.4L..


Btw she looks amazing.

No no no... 840i is the M62B44 (this engine was in the first gen e39 540i)

and it was offered in 6spd in europe, just not in NA

From the day you got it how many times did you get EML ?
 
Did the previous owner perform banjo bolt job ? Any leaks from lower or upper oil pan ? Did anyone resolder-repair the General module ? Do the windows go up after you close the doors? Whats the condition of the rellays ? Did you source out and repair any parasitic drainage ? will the car start up after 5 to 7 days sitting ? Power seats , memory seats work ? Any holes on the mufflers ? Whats the condition of the window seals - weather striping ?Please provide additional information and post the maintanace that was performed by you so people can make an informed decision ! She looks stunning by the way *th-up*

Did the previous owner perform banjo bolt job ? Don't know what that is.
Any leaks from lower or upper oil pan ? None at all.
Did anyone resolder-repair the General module ? Don't know what that is.
Do the windows go up after you close the doors? Yes
Whats the condition of the rellays ? If your reffering to wiring, it is mint no signs of heating.
Did you source out and repair any parasitic drainage ? Battery holds charge very well. (inv for approx 600 for new batteries a year and a half ago from BMW)
Will the car start up after 5 to 7 days sitting ? Just came back from Miami and started up the car no problems at all.
Power seats , memory seats work ? All motors work except one of the two tilt adjustments on driver's seat.
Any holes on the mufflers ? None.
Whats the condition of the window seals - weather striping ? No highway wind noise and there are no signs of dry seals or cracks.
Please provide additional information and post the maintanace that was performed by you so people can make an informed decision: Replaced one lifter due to sticking. Performed a flush on coolant system, power steering fluid, brake fluid and engine oil flush. (although previous owner had stated oil was changed two months ago, I was uneasy about not doing it myself.) I also bought a set of used replica 2 piece 18's (black rim, aluminum dish) that have a four inch lip however have not installed them. I put a brand new set of tires on the rear. I have not mounted them because they need a set of spacers and I'm debating about whether I really want to put 18's on the car and effect performance and damage a tight ride. (harsher ride) However I will include them with the sale for buyer's discretion.
She looks stunning by the way: Thank you, I thought so too!
