1999 E36 BMW 328iC Convertible for TRADE! Tastefully modified!
 
Hi everyone,

I'll start out by saying that this post is being made purely out of curiosity to see what people would be interested in trading me for. I have absolutely no reason to sell this car and if I don't receive any offers that peak my interest keeping it is exactly what I'll be doing.

I have two rules for potential trades that cannot be broken under any circumstances:

1. Trades must have a manual transmission.
2. Trades must be either AWD or RWD.


Now that I'm done with that I can start with my car. It's a 1999 BMW 328iC. It was made in the last year that BMW ever made E36s, so if you've ever wanted an E36 this is the newest one you can possibly get. It was produced in January, 1999.

It currently runs wonderfully with absolutely no problems. I've owned it since October 13th of last year and have enjoyed every moment of it. The car is enthusiast owned, responsibly driven and gets the attention and care it deserves (just ask my 90-year-old neighbour how often she sees me outside washing or working on it). The car has been very meticulously maintained and cleaned, and I have a reputation for being very picky with things, especially my car. This car is my pride and joy.

While the car is modified, I can assure you that each item is an item of quality and was installed correctly by either me or a professional. No expenses were spared with this vehicle, I want to do things the right way the first time.

That is one of the most detailed FS/FT ads I've seen, just needs a price. GLWS!

Thanks, the amount of detail in the ad reflects the amount of detail that goes into the car! :)

I'm really more interested in a trade at the moment, but I'm willing to work with reasonable offers to buy the car as well. I haven't really given too much thought about an asking price as I'm more looking to trade, which is why I have no price on the ad thus far.

I have a rough idea of what I'd like in my mind, but I'll give it some more thought before posting it up.

Thanks!

Send some pictures/information my way. I'd probably need cash on top without knowing more about the car, though.

Woofer 07-13-2013 08:25 PM

Sweet car man. Love the color combo. If I didn't love my e30 so much I would considering trading.This is the exact e36 i would own. Good luck with your sale. Just curious what your asking price would be. Wife does need a new car soon lol. PM if you'd like. She has a relatively clean 1990 e34 535i/manual if that interest you at all. I also have a 540 I'd consider throwing in the mix if you want to make some more power. Anyways, Long shot, but let me know.

I'm still not 100% sure about my numbers, so I don't want to post them here.
