I missed the sign up before HST price increases are in effective. That sucks. Also, they recommend I don't go in the novice group, but in B, so no cheap rate for me. Also boo.

Nice!

What was the name of that book you recommended? They had it at the speed shop...

Muave exterior, is that like purple? And gray interior?

Need cats ($$), stereo and first year production. I wonder what made the cats fail in first place, whatever it is, its probably gonna fail the new cats.
Come on Joe!

It's 13 years old. Things will fall apart. For the price, I wouldn't expect anything perfect but it's been serviced!

-Stereo sounds like a dirty contact, not an actual stereo.
-Pixels, happens. $300 fix by mail. They all do it. Mine's gotten pretty bad for the OBC but the odo is still legible.
-Cats-mileage is high, they are replaceable item

I believe the colour is called aubergine. Could be similar to techno violet but I don't really know...E36 guys love technoviolet. I don't but you're an E36 guy.

Geez, it even has brand name tires. That in itself is a huge indicator of the type of service the car has been through.

We should take a road trip to the states and get your next car.

Thats actually not a bad color! Wouldn't the cats be about $500 used? I know that Euro Parts junkyard will want way more tan $500.
After you replace them you gotta cross your fingers because you never know what the E-Test results will be.. I always buy cars E-Tested first even if I pay out of my own pocket.


Right now my budget is $8500, and it will be $11.5k whenever I sell my E36.

I've seen couple of 2001-2002 530's with about 220Km on them for $8000-$8500, not a bad deal but one is auto and other has tan interior. If I was to choose between those to I'd get the manual with tan interior.
I'd like to get a manual with black interior. And I love the facelift look!
I wouldn't mind auto if it has been well maintained.

So as long as its a manual 530i with black interior (any color except white, green, red, burgundy) I'm interested.

Forking out $2000-$3000 more (that is whenever I sell the E36) will get me the same cars with lower mileage.

Cats -- I ordered Magnaflows from the States and had them welded in -- roughly $500 all in. Id' bet the root cause of that is intake leaks, so that's another $400+ in parts there. Then there's all of the likely suspension woes.

When Mine sells, it will likely be for a similar price, or maybe a bit higher if I can take care of niggling issues.
