Looks like it has some suspension work, too.

I'd say $12k-15k.

So you guys think it's worth between $11-14ish canadian?

The guy also said that the engine makes a little noise at idle. He said it's because of the m3 cams. Anyone have m3 cams in a 325 here? Does it idle any different than stock?

what kind of noise is it? is the idle smooth? cuz if it is then it might be the cams.

Looks sweet, all it needs is a m3 stock or performance exhaust

yes. It has a few tan parts still, that the guy didn't get with the m3 interior. The armrest, sunroof, and top part of the dash. I am not concerned. I can pick those things up for a few hundred.

As for the cams, this is what the guy told me:
"the timing chain tensioner was replaced, it clanked really bad, and they fixed it, and now it just idles a little rougher than normal cams. which is easily fixable with the original cams i still have."
