I've always wanted a Saab 900 Turbo coupe. Just to say I've owned one lol, they are an awesome car.

I asked the guy for the VIN ahead of our meeting on Thursday so I could do my due diligence. If it's just the cam sensor and some shitty respray, I'll buy it. Although it makes zero financial sense, I do want the extra 110 hp. Anyone potentially interested in my 540?

Hey - good for you! F'in seller never called me back...

Can you borrow a scanner or PC based software? It would be a good idea to see what that CEL is really saying. I can lend you mine if you need something - but I'm in Markham.

It is possible to pick up a good deal on an M5. I bought mine (fell as backwards in to this one, wasn't looking for an M5, but a Porsche 911) in 2011 ..the car had 144,000 Klms on it, dinan carbon CAI and super sprint exhaust. Needs a front stone chip repaint,, the cars owner had 3 m cars and through a BMW mech I asked about this one, had $16,000 in receipts in last 5 years,,, he replaced anything that wasn't perfect with new OEM,, including tranny!!!, at a cost of over $7,000. (Guess it felt "notchy"). has one loonie size rust spot by rear fender which will be removed this year.. I got the car with spare rims for $10,000 e-tested and safetied .... so far I have done :powder coat rims , dynavin system (which I absolutely love) and a few interior mods...put 10,000klms on it so far, next year it timing guides and rod bearings,..this is the second car I have ran away with..my Z28 was just as good a deal....still sniffing around for my 911....been 4 years and still haven't found the deal/one I'm looking for..

An update--seller never responded to my VIN request, and never got back to me to give me his location. Unfortunately, I don't think he's going to do so either, seems flaky.

Because its an accident car, and he hopes to sell to someone that knows nothing about buying an M. (or other good cars for that matter). If it drops a few more $K it would be a nice parts car, IF the engine is good! lol
