If it's still there, go see the 6 spd at MTC auto in the market. It's in decent shape. Lots of little rust spots but it's an 01 with all the goodies. Needs a MAF I think but still a good car.

BTW, I got 36MPG on the highway this weekend. :Woot:

I love that color! But if it has lots of rust spots, then body shop would have to blend the color into adjacent panels (depending where the spots are), this means the bill would add up fast.

I'm kind of iffy about buying a car from a dealership. I'd have to pay full taxes, and they do not know the history of the car.
I've seen lots of clean 2001-2002 530i around Toronto, from $10000-$12000, (120-170kms). I'll also get a 538i as long as its clean and well maintained.

I'd have to sell the E36 first though, then a plane ticket to Toronto with my brother to puck up the E39!

ps: 36MPG? Not bad at all!
What about city driving?
