Is it auto or manual? What shape isthe exterior and interior in? What recent maintenance has been done to it? You have to give us a lot more information than that.

When was the last time the entire cooling system was replaced? How about the shocks, struts, control arms, tie rods, FCABs, end-links, RTABs, RSMs? Service history? Any accidents? All VIN numbers intact on the doors, fenders, hood, and trunk? Etc...

Regardless, if it needs a new paint job, I think you'll only get a few thousand dollars out of it, but we can't really tell you anything with certainty because we know nothing about the car.

M3 swap would be around 3k for one with higher miles...

get over the fact that you want to go fast and realize speed isnt everything

Probably the cheapest.

Is your suspension stock?

Intake, exhaust and a chip.

If your suspension IS stock upgrade that.

whoa whoa whoa...


You have a 323is??!?!


Exhaust and intake pronto.



The m52 is used in both the 323 and 328 the 323 is more restrictive which means less power. open that baby up.
