This is not a Craig's List listing, but this seems like WAY to good of a deal for me not to post it!

I actually did see that one while browsing CL goose, i may have to take you up on it. But something about the way he is talking about it make me feel kind of weird about it. A stick and all. I am looking to sell/trade my 540i either for an E30 or pick up a I6 model of the e34 and have a shifter.

Here's mine...

great idea. However doesn't most craigs list ads expire in a couple of weeks? So it seems only the fresh listings have active links.

If anyone spots any 94-95 540is then post 'em up here. Preferable if they're in the western part of the USA.

Hey Goose. How do you get so many pics on CL and get them so big? I can only get a total of 4 pics and they are really small.

Hey Steve (and anyone else interested), I actually posted the whole thing from my phone... gotta love technology. I took the pics with my phone, uploaded them to Photobucket, and then you copy and paste the "html" link they provide you in the description. It looks like this: < img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v450/etan_atsim/IMAG0420.jpg" >

You can use Flickr or other picture hosting sites, but I have been using Photobucket for years and have never had an issue. I usually edit (crop and resize) the pics before uploading them though, to make it fit on the average person's computer screen (usually ~1000 pixels wide). Especially with cars, the more good quality pictures you have, the more interest you get.

The car has a trailer hitch on the back. God only knows what kind of stress that engine has seen.

540 for sale. It had better be absolutely spotless and have ZERO problems for the seller to want $7,000 for it.

I mean, that's 3,000$ above KBB value.

Most of the ones I've seen at dealerships have been decently priced, other than the one I just posted.

And this one comes with a chick magnet, but I can't tell if it is stock or aftermarket... http://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/cto/2624279032.html
I'm thinking about buying it just for that because mine fell off about a year ago.

This one is clean, I love the wheels: http://boston.craigslist.org/sob/ctd/2619878479.html

is it just me, or are those wheels atrocious on a BMW? If I got that one, first thing I would do is get the stock wheels back on. Those ones are just....yuck.
