Thanks Vitaliy. And thanks to everyone else with positive things to say ITT.
The crapping in here is funny to me - I have a kid at work begging me to sell the car to him for 6k. I could juice him for 7 probably, but a) I'm not a dick and b) I'm just not sure I want to let it go to him because he is young with questionable taste and if the next owner of this car is going to molest it, I don't want to watch it unfold after the care I've taken to keep it up. I posted it here first to try to get it into the hands of another enthusiast. I've looked at plenty of other E36s - you'll be hard pressed to find one in this condition for the same money.
