i want an e36 - q's inside

How much would I be looking at for a 92-94 318 or 325 is? Right now im trying to find a trade for my ix.. but if I cant I might just have to save some money and sell my car and buy an e36... I found a 94 318is for 8grand.. but i have a feeling i can find one for lower

Also, what are some things I should look out for when looking at these cars?

(ps. If anyone's looking for a 325ix and wants to trade/work out a deal with their e36... my only criteria is that its 2dr and 5spd, color isnt really an issue, engine size not too much of a concern)

my beige one is for sale for $8000 but it's automatic. It's still a good price though for a 325i that's fully loaded.

Get a 318ti. You can find a number of them for around 8k. They are 1995+, light, 2dr and handle great.

IMHO, save up around $11,000 along with selling your current car, and buy a solid e36 with a good warranty. My e36 is a 92 and I had a full year warranty on it.. everything I found wrong in that year they fixed / replaced.. including timing chain tensioner, radiator.. and even small things like the window switch w/ a blown light bulb. Oh, not to mention a bent Type-45 rim from a 2002 325i.... replaced that too no questions asked.

The money I saved that year from the warranty... and from searching for every little thing that can possibly be wrong with the car. Now, a year later I don't have any worries.

I mean, you pay more initially---but for the piece of mind you get.. it's worth it!

Tranny swap is $1400 from Bimmersport. $9400 is still a good deal.

trust me ur car is out of my league... basically my max budget is whatever I can get for my car, plus maybe 1 grand at most though right now im not too well off on cash.... thats really why im looking to get a trade, plus i would let my car go with my new alpine deck (which is like 700retail) and with a 4ch amp (which is about 200 or so retail) hoping to sweeten the deal a bit

my cars in really good condition though...and im likely expecting to get a pretty rough shape 318is, so i think that for practical purposes (ie speed + reliability, plus the 4wd) ill likely be losing out, but hey im willing to take that just cause i love the e36 model

I just bought my 94 325is, 5-speed for $7600 ... 198k on the clock, but it runs like new, and the only thing I had to fix was the RSMs and 1 lower ball joint.

They are out there ... just gotta be patient!
