Not an E36, but...

http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/cto/2898045466.html

Faster than a 635csi?? Looks in great shape, I wonder why so low?

I've never heard of a 633. Did they actually make those, or is the seller just misguided?

I think he's misguided about it being faster than the 635, but yes the 633 was in the US for many years before they upgraded the engine.

You can also find that engine (M30) in the E32 7 series, I think...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW_6_Series_(E24)

In the E24 from '78 to '84. The Back to the Future II 6er was a 635CSi that was converted into a drop top.

I hear that. Hard to justify spending that much on something you have to tow to the track.


Well, if I had the money it would be justified, but I drive an e36 so obviously I'm not that comfortable.

What do you guys think of this one. 93 325 with a list of mods, but I'm still thinking $5k is too high.

It's had a lot of decent work done, but it's still too high. It isn't in particularly good shape, is about to crack 200k miles, and has a big 'ol dent in the rocker behind the front wheel. The owner probably rolled the car off a jack stand or something.
