Yeah, I would still paint it. It wouldn't be worth swapping everything over for a slightly cleaner black coupe.

You realize this is a POS and is worth less than $700, right? 270hp V6? Um....

Maybe it was those ultra rare 2002 e36, I mean, e46 m3 18" wheels.

If I had a reason to go to Chicago this weekend I would go slap that seller for the whole e36 forum.

The phoney M3 badge has to increase the value at least $20. 270HP??? Not unless he hooked up a turbo to it (another reason not to buy it) or did extensive engine work on it i.e. camshafts, lighter pistons, flowed the heads etc.. No way a simple chip will increase horsepower almost 45% from stock like he is claiming. Ask him for his dyno readout to prove his 270hp claim, guessing it does not exist. Considering the exterior's excellent condition, my guess is the other parts have probably seen the same love and care as well. Not a pole long enough to touch this thing.

Now this is a nice REAL M3 but the price tag is a bit brutal.

Lol, my old snow wheels and tires that I traded for the Merc. Looks they've gone through a couple people since.

Yo, Yo, Yo, I like to watch Big Mamma's House when I drive LOL. I think there might be a law against the DVD player on the steering wheel. I don't understand why we have so many people in Dayton and Cincinnati putting up pics of filthy cars on Craigslist. $25 bucks at the car wash can get you $500 when you sell it.

I like the BAD description: Needs valve job to run, radiator.

Translation: Radiator had a leak, overheated the engine and warped the heads. Me thinks its a bit more than a valve job.
