Eh. I'd offer 200 and that's about it. They're alright looking but not $300 good to me.

Is it good deal or not?

Also what could be a possible problem that car is not starting?

I'd say it's worth checking out. If it's in really good condition and you can safely say it's something like a battery to a starter(something that isn't expensive or a difficult DIY), I'd drop $1500. Could easily be sold for $4000 if it's in pretty good condition.

It is Canada though, and you guys do things a wee bit differently.

Me: "It's less restrictive, and helps with fuel economy?"
Significant other: "So, how much did you pay for this new, louder exhaust which replaces the perfectly good old exhaust?"
Me: Gulp...
This had me laughing. Mostly because I had this exact conversation last month!

Isn't that the car they used to test V1 laser and radar detectors on Drive? I think it's been on one of those cross country road races..

Yeah, he LOLs when people offer him $1200, but really, people like me are LOL'ing at him for asking for $1600 + shipping for some Style 5s with off-brand tires.

It looks like you have some stiff competition in the renting a garage game.

Not trying to be a dick, but what about your car or that post made you post in the e36 section?

DO IT NAO.

That interior is in great shape for the mileage, I lurve me a good all black car. 6 spd swap ftw. And shadowline trim. And clears. And a drop. And M-Pars.

You really should pick it up. It doesn't have as much torkz since it's pre-VANOS but it's simpler, and as I found out with current 5er, no one currently makes a VANOS kit for the M62TU.

Cheap, but the owner has an interesting definition of "low mileage". He says "193k original highway miles, low miles for 1998 you do the math." Okay, I will... That's 12,867 miles per year... Um... Not exactly low, but more like totally average.
