I am looking at this e30 m3...

Theres a guy in town here who will sell me his e30 M3 for 15k canadian...now the exterior of the car is in good shape.. i know nothing about the engine or anything, i only briefly talked to the guy.

Assuming everything checks out, how reasonable is the price he is offering me?

If you are serious about the car, take it to BMW.. have them perform a safety on the car and get ready for a shock. If ANYONE can pick out flaws and things that need to be replaced its the stealership.

If all that goes well, get a leakdown and compression test. It should all cost you about $150-$300 but you will know EVERY flaw with that car.

Price seems very reasonable for B.c. Can you find out any more info - mileage, year, etc?

That isn't a M3. It is a E30 so adjust your pricing. If they are telling you it is a M3 then say thanks.
Here is a E30 M3 notice fender flares and wing both stock.
