buying a 91 e30



Hello Guys

I have been creepin the forum for a bit as i have been on the hunt for an e30.
I'm currently looking at a 91 318is right now, The seller is asking 5500 bucks for it.
It is a red 2 door coupe with black leather, it also has been lowered via lowering springs and sitting on ESM reps, The car has 350000km and no rust as it is a BC car, Do you guys think that its a good deal at that price?

Thanks

I dunno, $5500 for 91 318is with 350K on it sounds high to me. The one posted by Mister would be a better deal.

These will tell you what to look for.

Hi guys
Thanks for responding to my post, not many 2 door coupes around probably have to pay a premium for a coupe

3.5 years ago, I paid $2000 for my 2-door eta with 227K km. NEVER winter driven. Granted it is an Eta.

Unfortunately the prices have gone way up since then. 4 years ago I paid $1800 for my 325i 2 door 5 speed, granted it needed interior work the body was clean with 175k on it. Last fall I bought a 4 door, mint interior and no rust with 154k and paid $4500. It was the cheapest one on kijiji at the time that was actually clean.
