LF: 325i-328i/is

Hey guys,
I've been on the search for my first car for awhile now, and I've decided to spent the money on a nice E36.

My budget is around $3500. I'm looking for a nice 325i, or a nice 328i/is. I've found a few, but deals have fallen through and my options have started to run out. I know I can't expect mint for this price, but really I'm just looking for something in good enough shape so I wont have to do any major work on the car within the first few months of ownership.

My preference would be a 328is coupe in manual, but i'll go with a 325i or 328i also. I REALLY want the car to be in manual though, thats a big selling point.

As for Km and year? The lower and newer the better. I'd rather have the car be no older then 1995 if possible, but no older then 1990. but I know I can't expect much with my current budget. Also, I live in Ottawa, so the closer to Ottawa the better, the farthest I'll go is Toronto, but the car would have to be a real gem for me to go there.

Thanks guys.

Hey man!

I posted an update to what happened on the thread I made on bimmer forums, but I guess it got buried in all the other stuff. Long Story short, the seller kept putting off the ppi and safety check till he just told me he won't do it. He was giving me a very hard time and was being a complete ass, so I figured forget it, I'll look else where.

I found a couple 325i's in Ottawa I'm hopin to go see sometime soon. Mind if I pm you the ads to get your opinion of them?

Hey.
When a seller wants to avoid PPI, that's a sign right there for you to run fast from the car. Forget him, plenty of E36s around!
I hate sellers with attitude.

Sure, PM me the links to those ads, lets see what ya got!

I know what you mean. I've had a few sellers that are very difficult to deal with. It's like the only effort some people want to put into selling their vehicle is to place an ad on kijiji.

I setup an appointment with one guy a week in advanced only to have him send me an email at 3am the day we were going to meet bailing on me.

See the problem with this guy was he just wanted to get rid of the car, he didn't want to go through the hassle of taking it to the shop and all that. He just wanted someone to come, like it, and drive it home. But I just can't afford to take a risk like that.
