alpwhite, if that car is missing a molding(looks like it) why wouldn't just install it to give it a better look? Selling a car with missing parts is hard, it just means owner didn't take care of it.
Also you should always remember the saying, "If it's too good to be true, it probably isn't".

And yes 98323IS is right, e36 never came with clears coners or sidemarkers.
thanks for clearing it up...
yeah thats true...it could be the picture?.. anyways, its definetaly worth going to see though...

That car definitly got a molding missing. Moldings on the rear door and the fender can be seen clearly, so it can't be the light reflection.


Anyway, yes, its definitly worth checking it out. I almost missed on my car, I actually didnt wanna go and check it out, because it looked bad on the pic. My bro went there cause he was in the area and told me that it looked awesome, I went there and I couldn't believe that I almost missed it.
So yeah, definitly check it out.,

If you end up checking it out, keep us posted...that's a real beaut.

SickFinga: YOu mentioned that no convertibles were sold in Canada, but we'vve prolly seen a number of them around. I know i've seen 3 or 4...so these must have been imported from the US?

Yes, some are imported(low_bmw and Rehman imported them, they are real), but most are fakes.

Sickfinga - you also mentioned no M3 coupes in canada for 95 and 96?? I've driven a few from those years which were Canadian spec

Pretty sure they sold M3 coupes from 1994 up to 1998 in Canada...

M3s were not available in canada in 95 and 96. What you drove was an imported M3 from USA, which was converted to Canadian spec(DRL and Metric speedometer) to meet Canadian standards.

I think what you mean vlad is "if its too good to be true, it probably is"

Although vlad... you do have a good resource of M3 information in your head.


Just go look at the car and you will be able to tell if it has been meticulously maintained or not.
