Stumbled upon this on ebay.... I'd do it if I drove a (stock) 318.

It would be a shame to part it out, though, even at 330k, it apparently still runs.

that is a collectors item for sure, it deserves a nut and bolt resto with an odometer reset.

Eh, maybe. Those cars never really had much of a collector appeal, and will never be worth much. It's pretty much a valueless "limited" edition.

i could see that argument. i suppose it's down to the person. I see it as the precursor to the US E36 M and being a very limited production with all M sport goodies and a desirable interior make it a little bit special. I mean you'll probably never see one on barret jackson, like an M3 evo or anything but, for bimmerphiles it could certainly be an obscure piece of history worth owning.

So this is worth jumping on? I was about to email the guy and go over to take a look at it. I know the "Hurricane" interior is worth a good bit, provided it is in good shape.

If you want a garage queen that can win concours competitions, yes. I disagree about resetting the odo. 330k is a testament to how well loved the car was.

And apparently reliable...

I emailed the guy. Hopefully he responds soon so I can go take a look at it. If all is good, I'll definitely make him an offer and pray he takes it or negotiates a decent price.

What kind of wheels are those on the car? Were they really from the factory like that? They look pretty spiffy.

If you crash it I hope you feel shame and regret. Seriously, at Legends of the Autobahn, there was a single M-tech and it got 2nd place in the clean class.

i would stay away from a lot of those if i were you Dino. lots of them seem abused, unmaintained, or simply beat to death.

Aw come on now. Cars are meant to be driven, not kept under a tarp 340 days of the year. It's just a 325 with M3 bling, anyway.

I agree with you, but not ones like this. Especially now, nearly 20 years later. This particular one has given its all, at 330k it (Indiana Jones voice) "Belongs in a museum!"

This. Maybe a spin or two a month to the store to keep everything going, but garage queen 98% of the time for that one. It's earned it at 330k.
