1997 328is

1997 Black BMW 328is for sale. Picture in signature

THE GOOD:
Recent maintenance, all done within the last 15,000kms

-New clutch
-New clutch slave cylinder
-New tie rods
-New control arms
-New bushings, everywhere
-New brake pads, rotors (fronts cross drilled)
-New handbrake shoe
-New ball joints

Miscellaneous:

-Just re-did the headliner myself in black, nice NON-OEM material.. Got M3 front pillars, and re-wrapped the rear pillars. Doesn't look half bad! I'm pretty happy with it.

-M3 front bumper
-M3 mouldings
-M3 side mirrors
-M3 black interior pillars (plastic)
-M3 Vader interior, complete
-Brand new stereo, new MTX speakers all around, small sub (not for massive bass, i just like my music) and amp
-ZHP shift knob
-Magnaflow exhaust
-CAI
-Style 68's with 225/45/ZR17 front and 245/40/ZR17 rear
-Style 30's with totally worn tires
-Style 44's (reps) with 225/45/R16 all around, GISLAVED nord frost 5 winter tires with plenty tread remaining (75%)

THE BAD:

22x,xxx kms.. Mostly highway, but engine still strong as bull and smooth as butter

Paint kinda sucks.. Previous owner probably took it to macco or something, looks nice when clean but in direct sunlight you can see some swirlmarks, a few scratches here and there.. etc.

Cooling system has yet to be overhauled, however I have never had any problems with it

I don't want to be mean, but a very large man who was interested in my car took a seat in the passenger side and ripped one of the seams in the vaders.. I noticed it like 2 hours after he left and he blamed the quality of the seats, I mean this guy was 300 lbs +...

I will post pictures when/if some interest in the car arises.

Here's a small one in the mean time:



Thanks for looking! I'm just taking offers right now - sick and tired of kids on Kijiji offering me 1000-1200.. Looking for somebody who will pay the money that this car is actually worth!

PS - this might seem absolutely retarded but I'll trade for an M3 + I'll add some cash

Nice ride man but do you have a target amount you're planning on getting or are you keeping that to yourself? I want to make an offer but I don't want to give you a ridiculous price.

I don't have a target amount.. Obviously I've put A LOT of money into this car in the past year, and I'm not gonna get most of it back.. I paid 4500 for the car, and the rest speaks for itself.. All work done by a very reputable mechanic in Markham (Sam's Garage)

Honestly, market is really tough unless you are willing to sit on it for a while. If e46's are selling for 3000-10000, getting anything close to 5K will be a stretch.

I think when the mileage gets high, the price of later model E36's and earlier model E46's sort of bottom out at around 4-7k, no?

This is a well kept car, its clean, its got lots of nice upgrades that a lot of E36's owners want.. Shoot me offers, like I said I paid 4500 for the car and probably put another 6k into it.. I know I wont get that back, but for anyone interested just keep it in mind

I know Sam's garage well and they are awesome mechanics, very reputable and professional. Beautiful car by the way. It says you're in Mississauga yet you take it to Sam's garage in Markham. Isn't that a rather large hike for a mechanic. There are good mechanics in Miss. too.

I've only been there 3 or 4 times, most of the work was all done at once.. But yes they are very good and my whole family takes their cars there so, felt right to make the trip out there.

interested, how's the rust situation? i don't know what to offer because the pictures don't really show the "bad paint" part. Are you trying to get 4K+ for it? I need to know the approximate price range.

You're right, you can get an M for a few grand more.. But here is a well maintained 328is which has a lot of preventative maintenance done, and at least looks *almost* as sexy as an m3! For 6600 you'll get a fast, reliable car that you won't need to put money into... The only thing I would suggest is the water pump/thermostat - bimmerworld has a cooling system overhaul kit for 299 I think? Like I said though - no problems at all with the car this summer in terms of overheating

If it's not too much work, could we possibly get more pictures of say the interior and of the front exterior without filters?
