To be honest, what I learned is a lot if these are people who have no idea what they bought and are second third owners. I drove a 318 that was listed at 3k and when I talked to the guy on the phone he sounded like he cared for the car. When I got there and saw it. Oh my god, what a pos. it had a HUGE vacuum leak, an oil leak, and ran like a turd. It crushed him to find that out. He thought that car was the best thing since sliced bread. Either he was the best actor in the world or he had been totally fooled when he bought it. Last i saw it listed at $1500 and it was still on for 3 weeks before it was gone.

1992 BMW M3 $1500 - $1500 (Elgin )

This is my friends car and he has put it in my position to sell it because he is being evicted from his home mid February and needs it out. It is a 92 BMW 328is converted to an M3 then swapped with an M5 motor. Roughly 150,000miles on the body and 40,000 of that on the motor. If your looking for a car with great potential this is it, but it needs a few man hours to get it back into shape which is why the price is so low. no major problem with the car and we will not deal with trades. CASH ONLY ON PURCHASE call or text me at 1-224-217-1550 for questions or offers.
INFO-
Automatic Transmission
high miles (around 150,000)
Beaten interior
PROS-
Lowered on H&R sport springs
solid frame no damage
front strut tower bar
aftermarket wheels 18'
custom full exhaust (non bolt on welded)
CONS-
Needs new valve cover gasket
needs new spark plugs
needs new battery Interior is trash
a few dents nothing major
retaining clips missing on front bumper

92 328i

"where you pull to close the door it had been pulled out due to me not pulling up the emergency brakes trying to hold back the car minor fix no big deal"

Took me a while to understand this but it sounds like he tried to stop a rolling E36 by pulling on the door panel. Everybody knows that you can't even pull hard enough on those things to close the door

^ i would figure for $8500 he could've gotten the hood to close properly....

and what is with the soot being blown out?? bov?? i *hope* that's not where the exhaust is routed...

still, would expect a little bit more polish given the amount of work it has. maybe it's just me??

It's so they can route a hose right from the exhaust to the cabin.














































Too far?

Not too far at all. Who in their right minds would want that useless piece of crap? And $8500. DOLLARS?

More parts cars for my eventual tranny swap, and the continuation of my 944/924 obsession. Both major projects though.
