Other then the wheels and the price, it's looks pretty nice. For $10K I've seen newer model years in similar condition.

yea i have wheels lined up for it anyways so i could just sell those. but i cant really seem to find many around my area. i wanted to offer maybe 9k ttl included???. it does kind of worry me that the thing has aftermarket suspension on it too. makes me think it was tracked or driven pretty hard

I wouldn't be too worried about it. No e36 will have original suspension components at this point and in many cases aftermarket is just as good, or better, then stock. It does appear to have front camber plates, you just want to inspect both front and rear shock towers and check for cracks or damage. With those wheels, stock brakes, OEM radiator... I doubt it was seriously tracked. Suspension is probably just for stance. I would put it around $8000 to $8500 if it checks out with a paint meter and all the VIN tags on the body panel match.

Did you end up buying it? That things looks real clean, but a bit pricey if you ask me...I would offer them 7.5-8k at most, "FULLY LOEADED," lol, awesome description ....tell them your coming from a distance, who knows they might cut you some slack. But make sure you don't waste your time driving 4 hours and end up not liking it.
