Ok, I've heard of the E36s with V6s, but this is a V4... super rare.

Correct, and a '98 would have the side airbags and rear seat headrests, which are not present on that car.

Meh, I don't know. Once you throw a few hundred dollars at it for the transmission, unless it's super clean, you're not gonna get more than $3k-ish for it, 2k profit tops. I think you could make more with the parts lot. Better yet, do both.

Dude says $800 for the 328, waiting on pics.


What does a good condition auto 328 go for?

Cj, I still don't see a whole lot worthwhile in that ad other than the engines, no?

Too many variables, but no less than 2k probably. I say you can make a quick grand on it.


Btw, I have a buddy selling an auto transmission

Seats, door panels, doors, it all adds up. The engines alone will more than pay for the investment. Everything else is just extra.

I was just joking about that asshat that I did the manual swap for. He's selling the auto, but it's overpriced and he's lying about the miles.

Oh lol, I'm really thinking about both....hmm.


The ad with all the random parts has two auto transmissions....



Invest 2k ish.

Sell car for 3k.

Sell rest of parts for 2k?

Wow, dude, that's ridiculously cheap. My friend just sold an M52 for $900. I think buying both works out since you get an auto to swap, too. Only 2k investment isn't bad, either. Do it!

Gotta see if I can borrow my dad's truck and trailer. Pretty sure I'm getting the parts!

Waiting on more pictures of the 328. Maybe just part that too?
