I am asking where/who he got it from, and why he went with one that needs soo much work? Not what needs to be done. re read my post.

Ya, I got it off Dave.

There were only 1 major problem with the car.
The way I look at E36's is that it is easier to buy one with a nice body for cheap and fix it the way you like as opposed to going out and spending $8K - $12K for one and you'll just have to end up doing the same stuff anyways. Look at what was replaced on this car... wear/tear items (brakes, bushing, etc), common E36 failure components (thermostat) and basic maintenance (fluid changes, coolant flush, etc).

Remember, a lot of the stuff that I added didn't NEED to be replaced, i just wanted to upgrade (ie. Koni Suspension, ZKW's, HID etc.).

Good buy! I was seriously thinking about picking it up and doing the repairs myself, but I made the mistake of bringing my wife with me to look at it. She politely pointed out that since we've already got 2, both of which need some work done to them, we probably didn't need the expense of another one. ...probably a good thing in hindsight.

Oh for a heated garage with plenty of space and loads of spare time!

From the pictures, I would have said that the car looks pretty rough too. But look again at that engine bay picture... pretty clean. I had a chance to see the underbody while it was on a hoist, very very clean. I'd recommend getting it underbodied while it's in such good condition too. The car basically needed half of an Inspection 1, to bring it up to standards. Sounds like a good buy to me.

maybe the hub on the rims can be machined down to the exact offset you want.. something to look into

It all depends on what you have, your plans and your needs. My opinion is that you'll spend money on an E36 no matter if its a 92 or a 99. They all have common problems... I was looking for a clean chassis personally and thats why I now own this car

Woulda coulda shoulda.... i wasn't expecting a mint E36 for the money. I fully expected around $2K in repairs.
