That color reminds me of Byzanz.

Wonder what the cover in the tag pocket is for?

Mein Auto: 1997 BMW 328is
BMW 318is $650
BMW 318is...needs work...maybe a good parts car...it does run and the auto matic transmission shifts good but it does need work ...if interested please text (919) 612-490

http://raleigh.craigslist.org/cto/3662002252.html

Wonder what the work is? I don't care if it is an auto for $650 and it would let me take apart my 328 for a while. hmm.

Go for it. If you have the space to keep a non-op car. $650 is funny money. With enough patience you can get that back and then some.

I have 14 acres. Hopefully my wife won't find it on one of them. I texted the guy, just wondering how to get it back from Raliegh, he says it runs so I might fix it and drive it a while I work on the 328 and then part it out. My list on that car is getting long.

$4000 is too much. Would be good at ~$3k, then you could rebuild it. Turbo + DASC = win.

Eh, if it's maintained well and in good condition, it's worth $4k. What do other 4k M3s look like that you've seen?

Turbo + DASC?

DASC was only made for M42s. And running a turbo and s/c on an E36 simultaneously is just plain stupid, IMO.

Not BMW related, but anyone who knows what a torsion axle is will appreciate this.

Got a set of two 3500lb torsion axles with electric brakes, less than 600 miles on each, with mounting hardware. For 400 bucks.
