Is it a bad time to buy an e30?

I am looking to replace my current e30 325 with a 325i. I ideally want a lower mileage car, must be 5spd, no rust and would preffer the later bumper style. I look at the autotrader but franky dont even see anything to look at. Is it just the winter and no one is selling?

Does any one have a good car for sale???

What are the details on your e30 I might be interested in picking it up if you are really trying to sell it.

I have no history, only that when I bought it I changed the Oil, Coolant, diff oil, battery, and front whel bearings. I would say it would be time to to a timing belt and valve adjustment on it.

hey dave, I have a clean rust free e30. IT does have rear end damage on it, but It may be forsale this week for a good price. It is originally a BC car but has been in Ontario (Barrie) for the past 3 years. Take a look at my post in the forsale section.
