To buy or not to buy

Hello community,

The top of my screen says I need to post something or I will be banned from visiting the site again Excellent site gentlemen.

Im considering an addition to my 04 325i and looking at an 1990 M3 (been wanting an M for a while and for the right price figured it would be a nice summer driving car). Here is a pic... Click image for larger version

ID:	151957

Its got 163, 000 KM (about 80k miles). I read there are like half a dozen variation on the M3 series (Euro and US model, evolution 1, 2, 3 (3 ending the series in 1990), sport evolution, Cecotto) and it doesnt say in the ad....asking $20k - seems high..but

Any advice from the commune on what I should consider, look out for, is it worth the buy?

Many thanks

^There goes 40. I'm feeling my age and I've ordered my M. I'm going to get the whole mid-life crisis package. ^

Looks nice, but pics can be deceiving. Take it to get a PPI done so you know the real issues. Canada can get any model there, but 99% of the cars there will be US spec cars. $20k is in the right ballpark for an 80k mile US spec car....teh exact price depends on what the PPI says.

Looks nice from the photo. It's worth checking out!

Go to www.s14.net to do further research.
