Question Found a 1995 318 Ti, 2dr Hatch

Could anyone tell me about these cars, wondering if this is a deal.
1995 318 Ti, 86000km, driven by a little old lady, crazy but true.
super solid, no rust anywhere, undercoated, kicker is, it's an automatic.
seems Ok. asking 7000.00 is this a proper asking price for this car??

Any info would be appreciated. thanks

It's worth about $3-5k, realistically. Great cars.

Ugliest car ever, but if it floats your boat, go for it. Way overpriced though as Mystikal said, even though kms are low.

I've owned one for over a decade now. Prettiest of all the E36 cars, that's for sure
Mine is a 5-speed and has over 230k on it. No way in hell I'd let it go for 3k... I know nobody puts any value on old cars in good shape, that is why I will probably drive it forever.
To me, it has all the advantages of the E30 - relatively light, simple, easy to maintain, no gadgets to break down with old age, great handling, etc. plus some advantages of the E36 like safety, more refinement, etc. I love mine.

The cars are well put together, in 1995 the plant where the car was built (Dingolfing, Germany) got a JD Power award for putting out the best build quality of all the car plants that JD Power surveyed.

I think the biggest issue with the M42 engine that this car has under the hood is that everyone puts 5W30 oil in it, leading to premature wear. The manual says 10W40 or 20W50 when temperatures are above 0, everyone seems to ignore that.

Love ti's. The price of the one in question is ubsurd. You should be able to take it home for less than 5k. 5k being the MAX for a MINT unit to someone who loves ti's.
