It's true folks. Have a look on AutoTrader

Anyways, I'm going to see a guy tonight about a '94 318is with 157Km on it. Any tips on what I should be looking at?

3L v8 gives the same amount of power as my 535, note, there's nothing wrong with E34's.

You can pick up a descent 325 under your price range, but you want to look for an E36 from 94+ to avoid the rear subframe problem.

Thanks for the list, thats sure going to be a help. But MAN, seems like the list has more negatives then positives

Anyways. I just got back from a trip to see that 318i, well have to say it was a waste of time, no wonder it was priced $5700. Lets run down the list. Note that I saw the car in the parking lot of the guys apartment, after 8pm, which of course is dark already. His buddy was there with his bimmer and had his headlights on, so within the first 5 seconds, I new it was a write off. First he must of used sandpaper to wash the thing. The trim was falling apart. He opened the door, and all I could hear was all this rattling in the door(both doors), I will say the leather was in good condition. Then comes a looksy at the engine, and remember it's DARK out there(I did have a flashlight in case, which I didn't bother using), and I could see with what light there was. There was what look like hockey or electrical tape on his air intake. He said there was a leak. That's as far as I got, wasn't worth looking at anymore.... Oh and the stick shift was ready to come apart. Well, back to looking again......

Lesson learn

The 530i did have a 3.0 V8, it was an awesome middle car at the time. 0-60 in 6.9 with the 5-speed, it could run with the old 535i for less money.

appearently that 3.0L V8 was detuned when they put it into the 530, the motor was originally built for racing in some sort of series in the good old days
