I'd rock that for sure. I bet that V12 isn't much to maintain....people just get scared. It's basically two M20's stuck together .

Although I'd much rather have that v12 in an 850.

Seems like a fairly good price for an E36 M3 sedan. Is this a member on here?

I actually went to see the car yesterday and I test drove it. The body was a little beat up and there were a lot of stone chips causing few rust spots on the body....perhaps typical of car in its age...

Marcus, the guy selling the car, was getting calls left and right from all over..including the GTA and Montreal. Although the body was not as promising as it showed in the pics I was still interested.

I was disapointed to find out the I'm second in line out of 6 people. The first in line was a guy from Toronto and I bet he is on this forum. He came all the way from Toronto on a train paid the guy and took the car home yesterday night. I guess he deserved it...

Marcus, also owned a 2007 RS4. I established a good raport with him and manged to get a ride in the RS4. Boy oh boy...what a monster! He calls it a monster in a texido. Just Beautiful...

The search goes on for a second car...

Interesting... no pics, but sounds like it might have potential. Euro E30 diesel!

LOL
I too was emailing him about the car. I think i was about 4th or 5th in line. basically about half a day behind in emailing him.
i almost got on a plane to go buy it (im in toronto) but once i found out a diff guy was coming by train from toronto i knew it was gone.
He seemed like a very nice guy over email.
Whoever sniped that seemed to get a nice car for the money.

If I had my 540 up for sale, I might jump on something like that (of course I might dent the hood, but that's another post....). I have always loved E36 M3s, and the aftermarket is certainly there. I'd want less mileage though.

BMWs, Mercedes and Euro cars in general have a very weak market.
Those interested in these cars are usually enthusiasts who are really looking for these cars. People like you and me.

Majority of people want to buy Hondas and Toyotas because they are cheaper to maintain and they sell fast. I had Hondas before and I'd get 4-5 calls a day whenever I wanted to sell one.
So see the car and find out if its in the shape/condition you want it to be. If the guy doesn't reply the car is probably sold? (maybe?)


BTW that black M3 was a damn good deal, even if it had nasty rust spots (which apparently it didn't).
If I was looking to buy E36 I'd get it in a heartbeat.

Yes of course because it was too good of a deal to pass up.

If it was an "ok" deal and he was asking $10,000-$11,000 for it, he'd have to wait a while, I'm sure he'd have no problem selling for that much if he waited for the right buyer.
